600,000 / US$600,000 – 840,000)
The Silver Spectre’s new coach built bodywork, stretching from the car’s A-pillars to the tailgate is topped by
a light carbon-fibre composite roof to keep extra weight to a minimum. Inside the roof is finished by a
statement hand-made ‘infinity starlight’ fibre-optic headliner, with stars fading towards the rear to give the
impression of an endless starlit sky.
The luggage area with its chiselled lines, reminiscent of a classic speedboat, features padded leather
upholstery, complementing the cabin’s interior, and is equipped with a bespoke picnic hamper trunk.
Another one-off motor car to cross the block at Monaco is the 1949 Georges Irat Sports Two-Seater,
estimate €70,000 – 100,000 (£60,000 – 86,000 / US$84,000 – 120,000), created 70 years earlier. The
eponymous small-scale car maker, who had enjoyed some success in the 1920s and 30s, started work on a
new car which featured a magnesium chassis and body. The final prototype, the car offered by Bonhams, was
unveiled at the 1949 Paris Motor Show held in the city’s Grand Palais.
The model was never put into production and the prototype was mothballed. Fortunately, when it was
discovered at the Georges Irat factory some years later, its distinctive bodywork, crafted by the famous
Parisian coachbuilder Labourdette, had survived with its characteristic cyclops headlamp and Vutotal

€800,000 - 1,100,000 (£690,000 – 950,000 / US$960,000 – 1,300,000) which campaigned in 1930s'
endurance races including the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Also eligible for the Le Mans Classic is this 1949 Simca Deho Barquette (barchetta), the creation of
racing driver Jean Estager. He decided to transform a Simca Eight classic into a race car with a 1086cc
engine prepared by Simca specialist Roger Deho and a hand-shaped aluminium body by renowned Milan
based coachbuilder Motto.
Another important post-war competition car, a 1947 Cisitalia D46 Monoposto, will also cross the block in
the Monaco Sale, with an estimate of €150,000 – 200,000 (£130,000 – 170,000 / US$180,000 – 240,000).
Leading the charge of exclusive and exotic road cars which would surely be at home parked in front of the
Casino de Monte-Carlo is a supercar rarity – a 1991 Isdera Imperator 108i, estimate €500,000 – 700,000.
When your name is Ferrari, it is not surprising that your motor car of choice should sport the famous
prancing horse badge. In 1983, Piero Lardi Ferrari, the younger and only surviving son of founder
Enzo, took delivery of a new 400i GT 2+2 Coupé, produced to his own specification, which is now offered
in the Monaco Sale with an estimate of €65,000-95,000 (£ 56,000 - 82,000 / US$78,000 – 110,000) with NO

2005 Porsche Carrera GT: the marque’s supercar for the ‘noughties’, was inspired by Porsche’s win at Le
Mans with the 911 GT1 in 1998. With its carbon monocoque chassis and racing-derived 5.7 litre V10 engine
producing 610bhp, the GT is capable of a 200mph top speed, with a rear wing which rises automatically at
75mph, for high-speed stability on track.
