RM began to host biennial sales in Monaco and Villa d’Este after the three Maranello proved too restrictive due to the Classiche policies in place. Sales began in 2010 and this years sale will the fifth held so far. The four sales held so far have all been super successful, especially on a per car basis and have offered a boutique selection of the finest European sports and concours stars. The most recent sale offered highlights including the top selling 1951 Ferrari 340 America and the last of ten 275GTB/4 Nart Spiders are just two stellar examples of the marque that has and will continue to underpin this sale.

The early highlights for the 2018 sale were on display at Retromobile in February and comprised the ex Kinnunen Porsche 911 Carrera RS and a very rare Bugatti Type 51 and while the Porsche is discussed below, the Bugatti has been nowhere to be seen. A second series of consignments featured a fine selection of Ferrari’s including the marquee lot, the 1957 Ferrari 250GT Tour de France. Ferrari had been producing the 250GT for some years when they produced some Competition spec Europa’s and these were essentially the prototype for the 1956 Competition GT. A win in the year ending Tour de France soon gave the model its unofficial moniker the “Tour de France”, and seventy seven of these iconic sporting GT would be produced by Scaglietti in four series over the following three years. The example on offer is one of seventeen that were given series 3 coachwork and in this case it was sold to Scuderia Ferrari team member Wolfgang Seidel who raced it regularly in 1958 and 1959. After stints in Germany and Switzerland, the car went to Sweden where it was restored over 20 years by the owner and some of Italys finest (Brandoli, Diena, Toni). Complete with Classiche certification and looking quite splendid #0879GT is estimated at  €7 to 9 million ($8.5 – 10.9 million) which strikes me as a little high but not unreasonable.

As already discussed, the Porsche 911 Carrera RS Lightweight on offer was supplied to Leo Kinnunen and entered for the 1000 Lakes Rally which he and co driver Haldi promptly won before passing through numerous owners in Scandinavia and is offered in surprisingly original condition. Most Carrera’s are either race cars that have plenty of shortcomings or road cars sans competition history, while this car offers the best of both worlds and I believe fully deserves its estimate of €1.4 – 1.8 million ($1.7 – 2.2 million). One of the six Ferrari Sergio, designed and built by Pininfarina to celebrate Sergio Pininfarinas life and offered in new condition is potentially estimated about right at €2.5 – 3 million ($3.02 – 3.6 million). A lovely Blu 1966 Ferrari 275GTB is good buying at €2 – 2.2 million ($2.4 – 2.66 million). The same 1962 Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina Spider Series II that failed at Artcurials Monaco sale in 2017 is offered at a lower estimate of €1.4 – 1.6 million ($1.7 – 1.9 million) and looks just as magnificent this time around, perhaps still a couple of hundred k too expensive but not unfairly so. The final marquee lot is the 2015 Bugatti Veyron Gran Sport Vitesse in Transformers livery of all things, otherwise a pretty good car, much cheaper at €1.2 – 1.5 million ($1.45 – 1.8 million) than they were before the launch of the Chiron.

Finally, this is Monaco so there are two famous Grand Prix cars, a Benetton and Jordan. The Benetton is a B192 that was driven by Michael Schumacher in 1992, finishing 2nd at the Spanish GP before being used as a spare car. Offered in excellent condition and refreshed in recent years, its offered for any use with a certificate of authenticity. The second is a Jordan 199F1 that  was raced by Frentzen to 2nd at the Australian GP and 3rd at the Brazilian GP in ’99, their most successful year. Offered in partially complete condition, it would be an excellent entry for the BOSS Formula. The Jordan is a little expensive at €250 – 350k ($302 – 423k) while the Benetoon seems fairly priced at €550 – 700k ($665 – 847k)

Just two pre wars appeal although these haven’t really been firing (except for at Retromobile), highlights are:

  • 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C1900 Gran Turismo. Est. €500 – 600k ($605 – 726k). Non original Le Mans coachwork fitted, likely ineligible for many events but lots of fun at a quarter of an original.
  • 1935 Fiat 508S Ballila Aerodynamica Coupe. Est. €395 – 495k ($478 – 599k). Very rare (1 off 11), low powered but beautiful Fiat Berlinetta coachwork. 14th at the 1936 Mille Miglia, original and lots of history.

Mid-century classics are one of the stars here and among the 80 odd cars on offer, there are lots of truly fascinating cars from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Highlights are:

  • 1949 Fiat-Gilco 1100 Zagato. Est €200 – 250k ($242 – 302k). 1 of less than 100 examples, noted to be original with docs. Ideal for the MM, priced about right. Kinda like a Cunningham….
  • 1950 Ferrari 195 Inter. Est. €500 – 600k ($605 – 726k). Original, authentic but rather challenged looks wise, its unsurprisingly lowly valued, compared to the $1 – 1.5 these cars usually fetch. If you can see beyond the styling, this would be a very good buy, eligible for everything.
  • 1954 Fiat 8V. Est. €750 – 950k ($907k – 1.149 mil). Rare Vignale coachwork, 1 off 11, Lusso spec with a gorgeous interior, eligible for everything. Good buying, especially compared to the sister car on offer at Finarte.
  • 1955 Moretti 750 Gran Sport Barchetta. Est. €200 – 250k ($242 – 302k). Unique little Barchetta, possibly ran original MM in ’56, ran classic MM. Great little car, priced right.
  • 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark II DHC. Est. €550 – 650k ($666 – 786k). Elegant, luxury DHC in great colours, the prototype of just 15 examples. A little expensive but not too much so.
  • 1955 Porsche 356A Carrera 1500GS Coupe. Est. €550 – 600k ($665 – 726k). Very rare sunroof Coupe. Non matching numbers (like most). Priced right.
  • 1955 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America B24S. Est. €800k – 1 mil. ($968k – 1.21 mil.) Gorgeous Dark blu example, beautifully restored, lack of info a worry but priced right.
  • 1957 Ferrari 250GT Boano. Est. €800k – 1 mil. ($968k – 1.21 mil.). Failed to sell at Bonhams Paris ’12 and claimed to be cosmetically restored since. Perhaps $200k over market.
  • 1957 Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina Coupe. Est. €480 – 580k ($581 – 702k). Non matching numbers, nice car with some shortcomings, worth the low estimate.
  • 1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale “Muso Basso”. Est. €350 – 450k ($423 – 544k). A gorgeous example of a rare competition spec SS, rare and expensive but find another.
  • 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Cabriolet. Est. €170 – 200k ($206 – 242k). Beautiful, great condition example. Much cheaper than a year ago and good buying
  • 1962 Aston Martin DB4 Series IV. Est. €475 – 525k ($575 – 635k). Restored example with a 4.2 litre engine. Incredibly documented. Good value.
  • 1965 Porsche 911. Est. €275 – 315k ($332 – 381k). Lovely example of the rare, early SWB 911. Perhaps $50+k over market but market forward.
  • 1967 Ferrari 330GTC. Est. €425 – 475k ($514 – 575k). A nice Silver example, average history, good condition and average price.
  • 1969 Porsche 911S 2.2 Coupe Prototype. Est. €250 – 350k ($302 – 423k). 12th 911S used to test the new model. Excellent condition. Seems expensive but likely worth it.
  • 1969 Citroen DS21 Chapron Cabriolet. Est. €150 – 170 ($181 – 206k). Gorgeous car, restored, pretty good buying at the estimate.
  • 1974 Ferrari 365GT4/BB. Est. €350 – 400k ($423 – 484k). Gorgeous, original car in lovely condition. Well worth the money.
  • 1974 Ferrari 246GTS. Est. €390 – 420k ($472 – 508k). Gorgeous car, priced right if the condition checks out.
  • 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL Batmobile. Est. €290 – 390k ($351 – 472k). Beautiful, original condition. Stunning car. Top of the market car, if condition is as good as it looks in pics.

The second segment with lots to interest is moderns. Highlights include:

  • 1981 Porsche 924 GTR. Est. €475 – 525k ($575 – 635k). Full race car with a pretty harsh history. Now restored. Much cheaper than the comparable 911, otherwise expensive.
  • 1983 BMW 635CSi ETCC Group A. Est. €300 – 350k ($363 – 423k). Genuine Group A period racecar with British and New Zealand history. Eligible and market priced.
  • 1984 De Tomaso Pantera GT5. Est. €175 – 200k ($212 – 242k). German car, highly original car. Seems a little expensive but cheap in the longterm.
  • 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort. Est. €785 – 950k ($950 – 1.15 mil.) Excellent car, properly documented. Market priced.
  • 1988 Aston Martin V8 Volante. Est. €200 – 240k. 1 of 113 examples, low mileage and nice condition, perhaps $50k too expensive.
  • 1991 Porsche RUF RCT Evo. Est. €180 – 200k ($218 – 242k). Very rare, not too OTT unlike others. Its Yellow and not bad buying for what it is.
  • 1994 Porsche 911/993 RUF Carrera Cabriolet. Est. €160 – 190k ($194 – 230k), Interesting RUF/ Techart car, priced right.
  • 1995 Ferrari F512M. Est. €300 – 350k ($363 – 423k). Rare car in Rosso Barchetta, exceptional condition. This seems to be the new market price.
  • 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GT. Est. €775 – 875k ($938k – 1.059 mil.) 12th of just 80 examples. Just 276km from new. A little expensive but find another one in this condition.
  • 2006 Ferrari F430GTC. Est. €450 – 550k ($545 – 605k). Expensive new and now. Great racecar but what would you do with it? Better club racers out there.
  • 2006 Ferrari 575 Superamerica. Est. €550 – 650k ($666 – 786k). Rare manual in good colours. Market correct but still seems expensive at twice the F1 examples.
  • 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione. Est. €200 – 250k ($242 – 302k). Rare car in good condition. Market correct.
  • 2011 Porsche 911/997.2 Speedster. Est. €180 – 220k ($218 – 266k). Nice, rare example of a modern 911. Very low mileage. Priced about right.
  • 2011 BMW M3 GTS. Est. €185 – 240k ($224 – 290k). Gorgeous, very rare car. Seems too expensive. Someone please drive it.
  • 2011 Ferrari 599GTO. Est. €600 – 650k ($726 – 786k). Excellent car, market priced.
  • 2012 Porsche 911 RUF Rt 35th Anniversary. Est. €250 – 300k ($302 – 363k). Very rare etc. but seems pretty expensive.
  • 2017 Ferrari California 70th Anniversary. Est. €315 – 390k ($381 – 472k). 1 of 1 or 5 examples. Seems like RM are now the agents. The last one failed to sell, same here?
  • 2018 Lamborghini Huracan RWD. Est. €250 – 350k ($302 – 423k). This could go mental like so many charity lots. Otherwise its just a Lambo with a nice autograph. ,
  • 2018 Porsche 911/991 RUF CTR3 Clubsport. Est. €800 – 900k ($968k – 1.09 mil.). 771bhp, 236mph and just 1 of 7 are great stats but a million for a brand new 911. Right!!!!!!

 

Aside from all these expensive and super expensive cars there are a few reasonably priced collectors cars, notably:

  • 1959 MG MGA Twin Cam Coupe. Est. €90 – 120k ($109 – 145k). An ex BMC rally car, lots of fun and market priced. Eligible for a lot of events.
  • 1961 Riva Florida “Divertente”. Est. €70 – 100k ($85 – 121k). Excellent for the Riviera. A toy for an acceptable price.
  • 1964 Bentley S3 Continental DHC. Est. €60 – 90k ($73 – 109k). Seems like a lot of car for the money. Probably market priced.
  • 1966 Ford Mustang 289 FIA. Est. €80 – 95k ($97 – 115k). Someone has already spent a lot of money making it, its eligible for the HETCC, good value for the right buyer.
  • 1990 Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 Group A. Est. €90 – 130k ($109 – 157k). Its a legit works car in iconic colours. Eligible for everything at half to a third the price of a comparable.
  • 1992 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur II Limousine. Est. €55 – 75k ($67 – 91k) A grand Rolls for the estate or something. Its got to be expensive to maintain, otherwise cheap enough.
  • 1992 Lancia Delta HF Integrale “Verde York”. Est. €90 – 130k ($109 – 157k). All the rage at the moment, here is one worthy of purchase.
  • 1993 Ferrari 328 Conciso. Est. €100 – 120k ($121 – 145k). Not an official prototype but still a lot of fun for not much cash. 328 based so relatively simple.
  • 2001 Ferrari 360 Challenge.  Est. €70 – 90k ($85 – 109k). A fun little club day toy, priced right.
  • 2007 Ferrari F430 Challenge. Est. €80 – 120k ($97 – 145k). As with the above but a little more so.

RM may not have quite the same excitement as Bonhams across town but the selection of cars shown above give a taste of the sheer quality of consignments in 2018.


Results

RM returned to Monaco with an interesting selection of exotics as discussed above and managed a $27 million gross, roughly half of the 2010,2012 and 2014 sales gross. This was achieved despite the failure of the sole marquee lot, the top sale fetching just $2.5 million, and with just 57 of the 88 lots sold for a 65 percent sell through rate. RMs marquee lot, a Ferrari 250GT Tour de France topped out at a €6.2 million high bid which while low wasn’t totally unreasonable and at roughly $7.5 – 8 million compares well to recent sales for the Tour de France, frankly I remain mystified as to the European market and their inability to accept adequate bids. A Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight was the second marque lot did sell at €1.24 million ($1.483 mil, or 11% below its low estimate) which seems cheap for the quality and was one of the buys of the sale. The actual top sale was the 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB which looked good in Blu and was noted to be spectacular in RMs words and it sold at a perfectly reasonable mid estimate 2.142 million EURO ($2.556 million).

Other million dollar sales were the 2015 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse which beat its estimate to sell at €1.72 mil. ($2.053 mil. or 15% above a relatively weak estimate), although this is still 50% less than they were in 2016, the 1962 Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina Spider Series II that ailed at Artcurial Monaco in 2017 actually sold at 1.69 mil ($2.02 mil. or 6% above a strong estimate). Another two Ferrari to sell well were the manual 2006 Ferrari 575 Superamerica at €860k ($1.026 mil. or 32% over estimate) and 1957 Ferrari 250GT Boano at a mid estimate €849k ($1.012 mil.). A RUF Porsche also hit the mark, the 2018 Porsche 911/991 RUF CTR3 Clubsport fetching €1.107 mil. ($1.322 mil. or 23% over a strong estimate), RM may not have had any huge sellers but selling seven cars for a million plus was pretty good going.

Easily the strongest seller was the 1960 Chevrolet Corvette which made €331k ($395k), fully 276% more than its reasonable estimate, this was also the first lot on offer so at least two bidders must have really believed the hype. As expected the Popes Lamborghini Huracan sold for 231% more than estimated at €809k ($966k) but that was more an expensive way of making a donation than a real world value.  The race prepped 1966 Ford Mustang 289 FIA fetched €144k ($172k or 51% above), likely cheaper than its build costs while a beautiful Blue Dino, 1974 Ferrari 246GTS fetched €534k ($637) although it was one of the best examples so worth it.  Schumachers 1992 Benetton fetched €815k ($973k or 16% over estimate) which should be a good long term buy compared to the two Senna F1s at Bonhams. Three Ferraris also sold well, the 2011 Ferrari 599GTO at €680k ($812k or 5% over estimate), 2006 Ferrari 430GTC at 511k ($610k or 2% over estimate) and 1967 Ferrari 330GTC at €478k ($570k or 1% over estimate).

All of those results were balanced the number of average or weak sellers, The Porsche 959 at €837,500 ($999k), Lamborghini Diablo GT at €815k ($973k), Ferrari 195 Inter at €590k ($704k) and 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C1900 Gran Turismo at €522k ($624k) all selling at mid estimate amounts. Good buys at the sale were lead by the 1992 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur II Limousine at just €25k ($30k or 54% below estimate) and the no reserve 1959 MG MGA at €43k ($54k or 53% below), somewhat less than the $183k the vendor turned down at RM London in 2015, ouch!  Other poor sellers were the 1998 Dodge Viper GT2 at €94k ($113k or 37% below), 1952 Lancia Aurelia B20GT at €80k ($96k or 33% below). Three of the lots were also declared no sales despite some quite strong bids, notably the 2015 Ferrari Sergio at €2.2 mil., 1954 Fiat 8V at €620k and 1955 Lancia B24S Spider America B24S at €680k.

RMs Monaco sale compared poorly to Bonhams across town and suffered from a lack of media interest, a TdF simply doesn’t cut it in Monaco and spectators noted that as a whole the sale lacked the excitement of the neighbours. Other than another Dingman Ford sale, RM will surely be working hard to ensure Monterey is more successful and the early consignments include a breathtaking Maserati, as for Monaco RM will no doubt learn their lessons and will return in 2020 all the better.
