Another British great comes in the form of a 1957 Bentley S1 Continental Drophead Coupe, first owned by the
Greek shipping magnate George Embiricos. One of only 31 left-hand drive drophead coupés, this elegant
motor car has had three former owners who managed a mere 98,382 miles between them.
Rallying was never the same again after the 1985 Audi Sport Quattro burst on to the scene – it is the 4WD
car which irrevocably altered the motoring world. This example is one of only 164 built for road use, and with
an estimate of €330,000-400,000, is a chance to own a genuine piece of motoring history.
Another sports car to be offered is the 1923 Bugatti Type 27 Brescia Torpedo, which was delivered new to
France. It is a delightful example and retains its original coachwork, likely by Lavocat et Marsaud. Widely
documented by Bugatti historians, it is estimated at €380,000-540,000.
An equally elegant Italian offering, the 1934 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 Pescara spider is an outstanding recreation
of a lost Zagato design, fully certified by Zagato. With matching numbers and chassis, this car is eligible for
Mille Miglia and estimated at €550,000-750,000.
Arguably the world’s first supercar, the 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing is nothing short of iconic. With
matching colours and numbers, this beautiful car is estimated at €1,100,000 – 1,300,000.
Other highlights include:
- 1959 Ferrari 250 GT ‘Series I’ Coupé. One of only 353 cars built, with matching numbers and timeless
Pininfarina design. €350,000-5500
- 1958 Talbot Lago T14 America Coupé. One of approximately 12 produced with BMW’s 2½-litre overhead
valve V8 engine. €450,000-500,000
- 1973 Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta. The last great front engined V12 berlinetta Ferrari and the fastest
road car of its time. €620,000-680,000
