Headline cars at the annual sale include a 1950 Ferrari 166/195S Cabriolet by Vignale (estimate 1,000,000 – 1,200,000 euros), an alloy-bodied 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB (estimate 680,000 – 840,000 euros), an early 1989 Ferrari F40, formerly owned by Michel Neugarten, which has raced in the Italian GT championship and the BPR series, estimated at 230,000 – 280,000 euros, and a rare 1976 ‘vetroresina’ Ferrari 308 GTB (estimate 50,000 – 80,000 euros).
Also highlighted is a ‘barn find’ 1964 Aston Martin DB5 Sports Saloon, which is in need of a complete restoration, that is expected to fetch as much as 200,000 euros. Two beautifully presented former Concours winners also feature in the sale: an immaculately restored European delivery left hand drive Jaguar XK120 Roadster (estimate 75,000 – 115,000 euros) and a Lancia Appia Zagato GTE (estimate 50,000 – 70,000 euros). Further Lancias include a rare 1968 Flaminia Super Sport, formerly the property of Rowan Atkinson (estimate 120,000 – 150,000 euros), a beautifully prepared fourth series Lancia B20 with full Nardi kit (estimate 90,000 – 120,000 euros) and last but by no means least a very rare and desirable Lancia Fulvia HF ‘works car’ with San Remo winning rally history.
A competition prepared Citroen SM Maserati, which participated in the Tour Auto 2009, is expected to fetch between 40,000 and 60,000 euros and a 365 horsepower 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible with hardtop (estimate 35,000 – 40,000 euros) is surely ideal for a leisurely drive along the Corniche, unless your preference for such outings goes to a nimble black Porsche 356 A Speedster in mint condition estimated at 140,000 – 160,000 euros.
A preview of the Les Grandes Marques á Monaco consignments will be held from 10am – 8pm on Thursday, April 29th, followed by the auction on Friday, April 30th from 1:00pm.
