LONDON, 02 July, 2020

The Principality of Monaco is one of the most glamorous places in the world with an important motoring heritage, hosting two legendary races on its streets: the Monte-Carlo Rally and the Formula 1 Grand Prix. It was a natural choice for Artcurial Motorcars to return to Le Rocher following successful sales in 2012 (the reserves of HSH the Prince of Monaco), 2013, 2015 and 2017.

The cars in the 21 July 2020 sale will be on display at one of two locations: the private museum of HSH the Prince of Monaco’s collection and the famous Place du Casino. For the sale itself, Artcurial Motorcars has chosen one of the most celebrated palaces in the Principality: the Hotel Hermitage!
Some 90 cars will be presented, with almost a third at no reserve, illustrating once again the facets of this famous rock ; elegance, prestige and rarity.

“After a period of confinement away from our shared passion, we look forward to meeting our collectors again for a genuine auction experience, with public viewing of the 90 Automobiles, presented in the sunshine and glamour of Monaco!” stated Matthieu Lamoure, Managing Director of Artcurial Motorcars.

Mythical Mercedes-Benz
1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing NSL engine (€1.2-1.4 Mio)
This 300 SL coupe is a genuine rarity for several reasons. It has continuous history, a small number of owners, low mileage, options of Rudge wheels and NSL engine, the original body, original leather upholstery and matching numbers. The car is also being sold with its original set of tools, jack, mallet and luggage. It is the first time this 300SL has appeared at auction, presenting an opportunity to buy one of the most beautiful Gullwings in existence and an all-time automotive icon.

1957 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster (€800,000-1,000,000)
This stunning car was sold new in France and remains remarkably original. It has undergone a comprehensive restoration (coachwork, interior, complete mechanical rebuild) that respected the originality of the car. With transparent history, it has covered 102,200 km from new, and is ready for the new owner to enjoy its legendary 6-cylinder 3-litre engine.

Italian Elegance
Two famous Italian constructors have been making history for more than half a century, one based in Modena and the other in Bologna. Some of the most celebrated models of these marques will be presented in the sale.

A 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC, (€600,000-800,000), from the collection of Nicolas Todt and fully restored by the renowned Carrozzeria Zanasi de Maranello at a cost of €200,000 is offered in the superb colour combination of azzuro metallizzato with black leather interior by Luppi. It is rare to find a Ferrari Classiche certified 330 GTC that has been restored to such stunning concours condition.

No list of iconic Ferrari models is complete without the F40! This example, from 1990 (€900,000-1,000,000), has covered just 30,660 km from new. It was delivered new to Madrid, and then spent time with its second owner in Portugal. This car has been entered into the sale by its third owner, who has a journey of nearly 1,000 km to his nearest Ferrari garage! What’s more, our collector lives just 50 km from the Arctic circle. This may be the most northern F40 in the world!

When the Lamborghini Miura was first presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1966, its revolutionary design made a huge impact. This 1967 Miura P400 (€875,000-1,050,000) has retained its original engine and colour combination. It will appeal to collectors having a transparent history, charming original interior and high-quality restoration documented in a photographic file.

Three vehicles from the Volante Collection.
Following the sale of part of the Volante Collection at Retromobile in 2018, Artcurial Motorcars will present three more exceptional vehicles at Monaco, offered at no reserve.

These are a 1939 4-seater Bugatti type 57 Cabriolet bodied by Vanvooren (€600,000-800,000), a 1932 Lancia Astura Series 2 cabriolet with rare coachwork by Pinin Farina (€140,000-180,000) and a 1977 Maserati Khamsin T-Top (€175,000-200,000). This unique example benefitted from a T-Top modification when new, carried out in California by an independent workshop with the support of the manufacturer, before the car was delivered to its first owner. This modification allows two lightweight tinted glass panels to be removed or refitted in a few seconds.

Supercars.
The most dynamic and efficient in contemporary automobile design.

Coming from an important Swedish Ferrari collection, five Ferrari with outstanding performance will be presented at Monte-Carlo: a 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Spider (estimate €500,000-600,000), 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista, (estimate €310,000-360,000), 2006 Ferrari 575 Superamerica (estimate €300,000-360,000), 2017 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso (estimate 250,000-300,000) and a 2009 Ferrari F430 Scuderia Spider 16 M (estimate €300,000-350,000). All one-owner examples, they are presented in exceptional, as-new condition today, all with under 3000 km and sporting various factory options.

Alongside these will be one of the most powerful supercars in the world: a 2019 Pagani Huayra Roadster. Delivered new in France, it has only covered its delivery mileage of 50 km! A rare opportunity to buy, as new, one of the most exclusive and high-performance supercars of all time. This prestigious automobile is estimated at €2.5-3.0 Mio.
