Lining up alongside the Ferrari is one of the rarest sports cars ever made, a 1954 OSCA 2000 S, chassis no.
2005. This example is one of five cars built and sports gorgeous Morelli coachwork. Winner of the 1954 12
hours of Messina and raced at a handful of other events in Italy, the OSCA benefits from a four-year
restoration concluded in 2003 and is ready to be enjoyed and driven on road or track by a discerning new
owner (Est. €875.000 - €975.000).
At the other end of the rare collector car spectrum is a 1995 Porsche 911 ‘993’ Turbo Cabriolet. One of just
nine left-hand-drive examples made of a mere 14 that ever left the Porsche Exclusive factory, chassis no.
8509 has been carefully used and has covered just 32,000 km from new. A unique and appealing mix of
narrow-bodied ‘993’ Carrera bodyshell and ‘964’ Turbo running gear, this drop-top Porsche was a special
edition, paired with a desirable ‘G50’ manual gearbox and, unlike the production 911 Turbos of the era, is
rear-wheel drive. This example is the second-to-last car ever made and is fitted with a unique electric clutch
produced by RUF and installed by Porsche Exclusive. It comes with a comprehensive history file, and a fresh
service (Est. €625.000 - €725.000).
Joining the recently announced ‘no-reserve’ 2005 Maserati MC12 and 1992 Ferrari F40 are additional iconic
supercars, including a rare Italian-delivered and registered 2014 McLaren P1. Finished in a unique
paint-to-sample Porsche Grauschwartz 7A1 Gloss with Rocket Red Pinstripes by McLaren’s Special
Operations (MSO) team – a €100.000 cost when it was ordered – the P1 has covered just 6,000 km by its
sole owner (Est. €1.700.000 - €2.000.000). It is featured alongside a prototype 1993 Bugatti EB110 SS with
unique factory modifications, including a twin tank single filler system, a carbon fibre engine cover, and a
revised gear selector (est. €850.000 - €1.100.000). Rounding out the modern era supercar line-up is a
one-of-150, two-owner 1996 Lamborghini Diablo SE30 in a rare colour combination of Titanium over Blue
And for less ‘money, money, money’ than you might imagine, the sale also features a rakish 1977 BMW 633
CSi once owned by Polar Music, the record company of ABBA—Swedish super group of the 1970s. The car
was purchased new to be used by Björn Ulvaeus, an avid BMW fan, as well as fellow band member Benny
Andersson, and will be sold without reserve at the Paris sale (Est. €25.000 - €35.000). Joining it is an
Italian-delivered 2001 BMW Z8, which is offered from its single private owner, a successful Italian touring car
driver, and has covered just 28,500 km from new (Est.€180.000 - €240.000).
Meanwhile, ahead of next year’s deliveries of the new Alpine A110, RM has secured a pair of Alpine-Renault
A110s for its Paris sale; a 1974 A110 B ‘Team Vialle Autogas’ and a 1974 A110 1600 S. The former, a
highly successful example, was driven by Piet Kruythof in 1977/8 in the FIA European Rallycross
Championship and has been restored by its current long-term owner with historic racing in mind. The A110
1600 S participated in the 1975 Targa Florio before being placed in storage until 2000. It has since been
restored and is ready to drive and enjoy, be it in vintage racing or on the open road. Both cars are exceptional
examples with fascinating competition histories and carry pre-sale estimates of €140.000- €180.000 and
€130.000- €140.000 respectively.
