When it comes to automotive excellence, no company sets the bar higher than Ferrari. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1929, the Italian car manufacturer’s dancing horse symbol remains synonymous with speed, luxury and wealth. Simply put, no car will make your next-door neighbor jealous quicker.

Typically, owning a Ferrari lies beyond the reach of most. They are idealized by all, and have a habit of increasing in popularity as they get older. The demand for these cars never seems to waver - in May 2012, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO became the worlds most expensive car, selling in a private sale for over $38M.

On Saturday, June 20, Skinner gives bidder’s the opportunity to nab a more affordable Ferrari option when they offer a 2002 Ferrari Modena Spyder Convertible as part of their 20th Century Design sale. Considered the closest thing Ferrari has to an entry-level model, the Modeno Spyder is a relative bargain at its estimated top bid of $80,000.

Which isn’t to say you’ll loose anything in terms of quality. The Ferrari Modena Spyder is one slick machine, getting it’s power from a 3.6 V-8 fuel-injected engine. It comes with F1 transmission, and gearbox integration for traction control, producing maximum stability under even the hardest driving.

The 360 Modena can accelerate from zero to 60 in 4.5 seconds and can pass the 180-mph mark with ease. Throw in an electric roof and saddle leather interiors and safe to say you’re in for a more than enjoyable ride!
