Additional cars penned by Zagato and set for RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba sale include a unique, removable
targa-roof 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC, clothed in a striking, angular Zagato body in 1974 and displayed at the
Geneva International Motor Show that year (Est. €425,000 - €475,000). Joining the 330 GTC is a single-owner
1990 Ferrari 348 TB Zagato Elaborazione, the prototype of just 10 examples outfitted with the conversion,
which included a new front bumper, enlarged cooling strakes, a triple rear light configuration, a lower roofline
with the marque’s traditional “double bubble” arrangement, and a glass engine cover (Est. €180.000 -
€220.000). Zagato-bodied Aston Martins are also in abundance at the sale, including the very first 2012 Aston
Martin V12 Zagato, offered with custom touches by Aston Martin’s ‘Q’ division (Est. €650.000 - €700.000),
alongside a 1987 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato, one of 14 left-hand-drive examples fitted with a manual
transmission and showing a mere 15,500 km from new (Est. €300.000 - €375.000). These entries join the
previously announced Fiat 8V Coupé, Fiat-Abarth 750 GT ‘Double Bubble’, Lancia Flaminia Super Sport 3C
2.8, and Aston Martin Vanquish Shooting Brake to complete a lineup of vastly different, yet distinctly Zagato
cars for the Villa Erba sale in celebration of the coachbuilder’s 100th anniversary year.
Looking ahead to the sale, Augustin Sabatié-Garat, Sale Manager, RM Sotheby’s Europe, said: “Our
auction at Villa Erba is always a highlight on the collector car calendar, so the nature of entries we have on
offer reflects the status of this sale. We are proud to present what can only be regarded as one of the rarest
and most diverse groupings of Zagato-bodied cars to be offered in a single sale, all of which boast intriguing
histories and distinct designs from throughout the coachbuilder’s century-long history.”
The high caliber of consignments continues with pre- and post-war European greats readied for sale, led by an
immaculate 1931 Bugatti Type 50 Roadster, one of two remaining examples with original Jean
Bugatti-designed factory coachwork and documented with factory records including the original bill of sale
(Est. €1.400.000 - €1.800.000). A pair of Delahayes also feature in the sale; a 1936 Delahaye 135 S
Compétition Court with fascinating period race history, including participation in the 1939 24 Hours of Le
Mans (Est. €1.000.000 - €1.300.000), and a 1948 Delahaye 135 M Sport Coupé wearing beautiful
coachwork by Hebmüller (Est. €250.000 - €350.000).
The shores of Lake Como also present the perfect venue for the offering of three of the most iconic 1960s
roadsters. Bringing the ultimate in post-war style is a late-production, Fire Red 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL
Roadster, equipped with factory disc brakes and an alloy engine block, and one of the most original,
well-maintained examples offered in recent years (Est €1.400.000 - €1.600.000); a rare 1965 Aston Martin
Short-Chassis Volante, one of the final examples of a mere 37 built and offered from over 25 years of single
ownership (Est. €1.300.000 - €1.500.000); and, a beautifully restored 1961 Maserati 3500 GT Spyder in its
rare original configuration with Weber Carburettors, a five-speed ZF gearbox, and Borrani wheels (Est.
€625.000 - €700.000).
Bringing the sale offering up to date are two modern hypercar legends, led by a seldom-seen 2009
Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss, one of just 75 built and inspired by Sir Stirling Moss’ 1955
Mille Miglia victory and offered with less than 8,400 km from new (Est. €1.850.000 - € 2.200.000). The SLR is
joined by a virtually as-new 2015 McLaren P1, finished in Supernova Silver with the desirable Stealth Pack
(Est. €1.100.000 - €1.300.000).
The official auction of the revered Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, RM Sotheby’s exclusive Villa Erba sale
will lift the gavel on a carefully curated roster of more than 50 of the world’s finest automobiles along with a
selection of memorabilia and collectibles.
