Then get yourself to the "Ferrari Gstaad" auction - hosted by UK auction house Bonhams - at the Palace Hotel in Switzerland, on Saturday December 18.

Also up for grabs are a pair of goggles worn by Alberto Ascari in grands prix, and the very last overalls worn by 10-GP winner Gerhard Berger (Adelaide 1995) in his Ferrari career.

If F1 cars are your thing, though, there's also a 1995-spec 412 and an ex-Michael Schumacher F399 (1999). It's all yours - if you've got a spare bank account with more than $1.3-million in it.

According to Bonhams, the F399 is "maintained by the (F1) factory'"and is presently having a "routine engine rebuild." -GMM
