Curse of the $16.5 million Ferrari pits tycoon against an auction residence

(Bloomberg)– Desired: one caring owner for a cherry-red 1954 Ferrari racer; present proprietorship greatly contested. When an eccentric U.S. Military engineer who worked on the Manhattan Job throughout World War II purchased a burned-out Ferrari framework for $2,500 in 1958, he had no idea that it would become the most fought-over vehicle on the planet. Now, after 16 years of claims and ownership claims from Paraguay to Switzerland, the fate of the roadster, which Victoria’s Secret founder Les Wexner believed he bought in 2013 for 10.7 million pounds ($16.5 million), is finally cruising toward resolution in a London court.
