Le Mans 24 Hour Circuit
72000 Le Mans, France
Artcurial returns to Le Mans to host their biennial sale in conjunction with the Le Mans Classic. Little needs to be said about the Le Mans 24 Hours which is now in its 95th year but the Classic is part of the Peter Auto circuit, the Le Mans classic offers a variety of races for all varieties of Le Mans race cars including pre-war, drum brake ’50s, disc brake ’50s, Group 4 and Group C. Like all such events its a fine line of balance between the original and the passes for cars and those that are racing to win and those demonstrating cars and this keeps the true greats to a minimum, for example no GTOs or 250 Testa Rossas among others. Whatever the negatives, the racing and the off track style is enough to make you feel like you have been transported back to the glory days of the race. Christies sold two authentic Le Mans Bentleys at their super successful inaugural 2004 sale although the follow up 2006 was a difficult sophomore event and they closed their automobile division in 2007 which lead to Artcurial taking over the sale. Despite some sporadic success, Artcurial have failed to keep momentum with just two sales grossing over $10 million and frequent failure to sell high dollar cars, 2010s McLaren F1 GTR and 2014s Ferrari 250GT SWB being just two of the great cars to fail.

Artcurial return to Le Mans with a large list of consignments (110 in all) that essentially offer something for every budget. As with every Artcurial sale, there will be bid spotters and multiple languages used constantly so for those that aren’t French it can be a thoroughly confusing experience, perhaps encouraging the use of a local expert to assist. Slightly less confusing is the marquee lot, one of two prototipo Ferrari 365GTB/4 ‘Daytona’ Competizione, #12467, which for all of being one of two or one of 15 or whatever the rarity, has been offered several times, notably Gooding Pebble Beach 2014 and Kenos disastrous New York sale in 2015, failing to sell both times at around the $4 – 5 million mark. Previously owned by Ferrarichat user “LoFlyer47”, there was some discussion around who originally race prepared #12467 and Artcurial say their research has proven it was prepped by Ferrari themselves, and Carrozzeria Sports Cars, and in the Ferrari world that makes all the difference. For all of its positives, 5th at Le Mans ’71 among them, #12467 is still a Competizione Daytona which was not Ferrari’s best race car, it has its original engine block included (what about the rest of the original engine?) and the Ferrari market is 20% off its 2014 peak so that would explain the 60% higher estimate of €6.5 – 7.5 mil ($7.5 – 8.7 mil.) then? Finally I must note that this car is said to be offered by the same dealer/ vendor who offered the similarly 50+% over market 250GT Series I Spider that failed at Artcurial Retromobile 2018.
As with seemingly every top flight auction there is a significant collection of modern supercars, this time from Switzerland that includes everything from loud Lambo’s to a stately Rolls while a small selection of very expensive French owned Mercedes-Benz are also on offer. Bare in mind that the Swiss collection requires EU taxes to be paid so that will be another 20% on top. Highlights include:
- 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4SV. Est. €280 – 340k ($325 – 395k). Startling in Yellow and Black, high powered and rare (1 of 350), Great value , comparatively.
- 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo. Est. €130 – 180k ($151 – 209k). Wild in Red and Black. 570hp and rear wheel drive, (1 of just 150). Basically market priced.
- 2012 Aston Martin One-77 Q-Edition. Est. €1.9 – 2.3 mil. ($2.2 – 2.7 mil.). Kind of odd in Red, Q-Series, 360 miles from new. (1st of a limited edition), hard to say but seems expensive.
- 2013 Ferrari F12. Est. €160 – 220k ($186 – 255k). Sexy in Black, 730bhp enough? 305km from new, priced about right.
- 2014 Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversary. Est. €250 – 300k ($290 – 348k). Lovely in Yellow and Black. 720bhp and blue flames. Not for the faint of heart. Reasonably priced.
- 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith. Est. €180 – 220k ($209 – 255k). 440km from new. Looks great in Black. Seems cheap for what it is.
- 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Final Edition. Est. €460 – 540k ($534 – 626k). 135km form new. 1 of just 350 examples. Very, very expensive.
- 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster Final Edition. Est. €500 – 600k ($580 – 696k). 230km from new. 1 of just 350 examples. First example. Very, very expensive.
- 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG World Champs Collectors Hamilton Edition. Est. €180 – 220k ($209 – 255k). 19th of 19 examples made. 30km from new and like new. 20% less than the last one sold for.
Pre war autos are more Retromobile than Le Mans and their is but one car that is worthy of attention. The rarest of Traction Avants is the cabriolet and this example is offered in elegant colours and with a relatively recent German restoration. While expensive for a Traction Avant at €105 – 125k ($122 – 145k) it is actually quite cheap for a Cabriolet although I would caution that it isn’t absolutely original but hey still a cool old car.
Mid century motoring is a strong point at this sale and includes a fabulous selection of Lamborghini. Highlights include:
- 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing. Est. €1 – 1.5 mil. ($1.16 – 1.74 mil.) A decent but not stunning Gullwing, single owner since ’68, stored since ’73.
- 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster. Est. €200 – 240k ($232 – 278k). Beautiful example in great colours. A little expensive but still cheaper than they were two years ago. One of the best and likely worth it (and more).
- 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster. Est. €1.5 – 2 mil. ($1.74 – 2.32 mil.) $1.74 – 2.32 mil. One of the best examples of the most collectible car ever known. Just 1372km and one owner from new, ultimate spec AND matching original hardtop. With all funds raised being donated to charity the price seems cheap.
- 1966 Lamborghini 350GT. Est. €450 – 550k ($522 – 638k). Restored car, seems priced about right.
- 1966 Lamborghini 400GT 2+2. Est. €350 – 450k ($406 – 522k). Very good condition, elegant in Silver. Needs to be checked out, worth it if condition 3+ or better
- 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400. Est. €800k – 1 mil. ($928k – 1.16 mil.). Said to have been fitted with a Miura S engine from new. Needs to be checked out. Priced as a Miura S but is it?
- 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7RS. Est. €300 – 400k ($348 – 464k). Cheapest RS in years but is it a real, legitimate RS. Description offers lots of ifs and maybe’s. Buyer beware.
- 1973 Porsche 911S 2.4 Targa. Est. €120 – 160k ($139 – 186k). A lovely example in great colours, well worth the money.
- 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7RS. Est. €500 – 700k ($580 – 812k). Restored example in interesting colours. Perhaps a touch expensive (at the high estimate).
- 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight. Est. €1 – 1.2 mil. ($1.16 – 1.392 mil.). Said to be fully certified as a genuine Lightweight RS but would need to be checked, even if everything checks out, still $100 – 200k more than others have sold for recently.
- 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL. Est. €150 – 180k ($174 – 209k). A lovely example of a highly usable early 1970s fast GT. Much more interesting than a 911. A touch expensive.
Modern collectibles are not just limited to the collections noted above. Highlights include:
- 1975 Lamborghini Countach LP400 Periscopo. Est. €900k – 1 mil. ($1.044 – 1.16 mil.) Pretty fly in Giallo Fly (Yellow). A great example with a good story, engine possibly a replacement so needs checking. Only the best examples have topped the magic million mark recently so seems $100 – 200k expensive.
- 1976 Ferrari 308GTB Group B. Est. €800k – 1 mil. ($928 – 1.16 mil.) 1 of just 15 built by Michelotto, no great rally history, a footnote in the Ferrari folklore. $200k more than it sold for at Bonhams Spa ’14 and the market hasn’t increased so…….
- 1979 Ford Capri Zakspeed Group 5. Est. €550 – 750k ($638 – 870k). Something much more fun, A full works Group 5 Capri. A quarter the price of an equivalent Porsche 935 qand just as much fun. 1 of just 6 survivors. Both expensive (for a Capri) and cheap, no comps.
- 1987 ADA C2. Est. €280 – 340k ($325 – 395k). Just a C2 so an interesting track toy but questionable usability. Wont be cheap to run, bills around run into the six figures. A second rank Group C car might be a better deal.
- 1991 Toyota Celica ST165 TC. Est. €150 – 180k ($174 – 209k). A genuine WRC Toyota that was raced by Sainz at the Acropolis Rally in ’91, restored and genuine, well worth a look. Lots of fun for an adventurous collector and less than half a comparable Martini Lancia.
- 1993 Porsche 911/964 RSR 3.8. Est. €800k – 1 mil. ($928k – 1.16 mil.) One of just 51 built but seemingly one at every recent auction. Ex. Japan and Gooding ’17 where it failed to sell at $1.2 mil. RM did sell one at this level at Amelia in 2018 so maybe it will be second time lucky.
- 1995 Porsche 911/993 Turbo XLC. Est. €90 – 140k ($104 – 162k). 450bhp and elegant colours. My only concern would be the 152k on the clock. Needs to be checked out, worth it if not worn out.
- 2007 Aston Martin DBRS9 GT3. Est. €200 – 250k ($232 – 290k). A cool car which was successful but that was a decade ago. Now only suitable as a track day toy and then only if if can actually be run without tech support. Otherwise its an expensive museum piece.
With so many lots on offer there are a fair few affordable classics on offer. Highlights include:
- 1960 DB HBR5. Est. €80 – 100k ($93 – 116k). Tested but not raced at Le Mans ’60, its only got a 954cc engine so wont be fast but gets access to any event. Restored condition. Priced right.
- 1954 DB Monomill. Est. €25 – 35k ($29 – 41k). A fascinating little single seater with fibreglass coachwork. Totally original, no idea what you would actually do with it but cheap enough if you can find an excuse to buy.
- 1977 Porsche 911 2.8 RSR Replica. Est. €80 – 120k ($93 – 139k). A repop for sure but lots of fun and less than a tenth the value of the original. Would be great for rallying or club racing and it wouldn’t matter if you crashed it.
- 2001 Lotus Esprit V8 GT. Est. €45 – 55k ($52 – 64k). A fun option for the adventurous. Should be relatively easy to maintain and fast enough to thrill. Priced a few k on the expensive side but still not bad buying.
- 1989 Mitsubishi Pajero L040 Paris-Dakar. Est. €40 – 50k ($46 – 58k). A genuine ’94 Paris-Dakar competitor, would be fun and could cross any bit of the planet, anywhere. Like the Monomill, great value if you have a reason to buy it.
- 1992 Toyota Celica Turbo 4WD “Carlos Sainz”. Est. €20 – 30k ($23 – 35k). A ltd edition (300 examples) Celica WRC rep. Relatively high miles and not exactly cheap BUT if JDM is the future, this will be a good investment.
- 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16. €28 – 38k ($32 – 44k). One of the original super Tourers (along with the M3), high mileage but claimed “excellent state of conservation”. Quite rare with just 5,743 examples. $10k too expensive for the condition, maybe but then maybe get ahead of the curve.
- 2002 Porsche 911/996 GT2. Est. €80 – 120k ($93 – 139k). A gorgeous, relatively high mileage, scarily fast supercar, much better value than an air cooled 911 noted to be a former salvage title car later restored. A gamble on whether its a bargain or a fools dream.
- 1985 Lamborghini Jalpa. Est. €65 – 85k ($75 – 99k). Beautiful in Red over Cream, restored a decade ago and one of just 400 built, cheap if the condition is 3 or better, if not avoid as bills will run six figures.
Artcurial should be congratulated for putting together an interesting assortment of cars for the sale although my overall feeling is it isn’t very Le Mans centric. Whatever my feelings, it will be fascinating to watch.
Artcurial returned to Le Mans to offer a similar quantity of classics although the quality was much improved. The overall result was 50% up at $14.894 million which was a great result although the sell through rate dropped to 56% with just 62 of the 110 lots changing hands. Leading the way was the fantastic 1963 Mercedes 300SL Roadster which sold for a 57% over high estimate €3.14 mil. ($3.69 mil.) while other good sellers were the 1960 DB HBR5 at a 16% over estimate €116k ($136k), and 2004 Ferrari 360 Spider at €74k ($87k) or 23% over estimate. Cars that sold below estimate were the 2001 Marcos Mantis GT3 at €52k ($61k) or 13% below estimate, 1966 Mini Traveller at €18k ($21k) or 11% under and 1966 Mini Marcos GT1300 at €36k ($42k) or 11% under.
Cars that sold for mid estimate amounts included the 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 at €834k ($978k), 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing at €1.013 mil. ($1.188 mil.), 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Final Edition at €489k ($573k), 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster Final Edition at €554k ($650k) and 1975 Lamborghini Countach LP400 Periscopo at €977k ($1.145 mil.). Ultimately though the sale was marked by the sheer number of no sales which included the 1993 Porsche 911/964 RSR 3.8 at €680k against a €800k low estimate, 1976 Ferrari 308GTB Group B at €700k against a €1 mil. estimate, 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight 911 at €950k against a €1 mil. estimate, 2012 Aston Martin One-77 Q-Edition at €1.7 mil. against a €1.9 mil. estimate and the 1969 Ferrari 365GTB/4 Competizione at €5.4 mil. against €6.5 mil. estimate.
2018 was a great improvement but there is still much work to do, especially in managing vendors expectations with regards to estimates and reserves. Still there was more than enough positive signs to suggest Artcurial is on the right track and certainly they should be ecstatic with the world record setting sale of the 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster.

The body, interior and engine have all been stripped down, and completely refurbished. The aluminium central section of the dashboard is perfect, and the seats have been magnificently recovered in beige leather.

16 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Coupe 876369 €200,000 €240,000 €232,440 $272,513 Mid
Light Blue and Black over unknown leather. The car on offer left the Coventry factory on January 1, 1962 and was directly exported to New York to be sold to its first owner. This is one of the few models with flat floors and welded hood grilles, of which very few models were produced, coming after the version with external bonnet closing system, as in another model that we also present in our sale. The car spent most of its life in the United States until it was imported five years ago to Holland where it was completely restored by CRS Vreeland in the Netherlands. It then entered the collection of a private amateur car enthusiast, owner of about thirty cars, until it was restored five years ago by a US E-Type specialist. The body was stripped to the chassis, countless hours were spent to get the perfect alignment of all the opening elements that pay a supreme tribute to the exceptional work of William Lyons. This Jaguar type E is superb and has only covered 500 miles since it was restored. Its colour combination is extremely desirable and elegant. It will be delivered to its future purchaser with its Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate. The Type E is certainly one of the most beautiful series cars; this one, with matching numbers, is one of the finest specimens, pure and in breathtaking condition. Dutch registration.

Burgundy and Black over Red leather. Marketed on the 13 July 1937, the Traction cabriolet on offer is the 11 BL model, imported from Germany by its previous owner. Having been completely restored in 2012 in Germany, the car is in perfect condition and has travelled only 2,000 km since the work was done. The engine benefited from a complete overhaul including the gearbox. Brakes were redone and the exhaust line replaced. All this work done with great care makes it a safe car ready to take on the road. In order to improve its usability, the previous owner got a 12V electrical circuit fitted, along with an alternator. The interior was carefully treated in the same way with a refurbishment of the red leather upholstery, carpets and the mounting of a Quillery steering wheel, as well as a Becker Mexico radio. Painted with an elegant two-tone colour combination, red for the body and black for the wings, this Traction is equipped with a spider which has seen the rear seats disappeared in favor of a loading volume increase due to practicality. The chrome is also in excellent condition. The car comes with a big file including the certificate of authenticity for this model. Innovative for its time, elegant, reliable and powerful, this convertible Traction is one of the most versatile models built before World War 2. Dutch registration.

Light Blue and wood. On the eve of WWII, a small scooter-style three-wheeler with a box on the front and front steerable wheels was created by Peugeot. Robust, economical and very distinctive, it quickly became a deservedly successful vehicle and a few French administrations such as the Post. The model we offer, a Type 57 TM, is the penultimate version: with the 125cc engine from Peugeot, equipped with a fan cooling system, it had a payload of 150kg. Purchased in 2008 by its current owner, it has benefited from many detail work such as the replacement of the front brake calipers, the replacement of the rear wheel bearing, gearbox output pinion, the crown and chain, plus cables and sheaths. Ignition and carburation have been checked and adjusted. The electrical circuit has also been completely redone. It is therefore in good working order and condition, has a manual inflation pump and its own oil can. This distinctive vehicle is ready for service, whether providing assistance at the edge of a circuit at historical events, or for the occasional ride in the countryside! Unregistered.

It featured an attractive FRP body with a removable roof. According to certain sources, the production of the 1100 version would have been limited to 77 units. The car on offer was registered for the first time in July 1966, and our collector acquired it in 2004, in memory of the example he had owned when he was young. This example is in nice condition and is currently powered with the 1.4L version of the Cleon engine, and features roll hoop with headrests. The interiors feature an accessory steering wheel, two bucket seats and a modern instrumentation. In 2014, the entire electrical harness was redone and all the electrical equipment was checked.

Registered 7059 JU 75 on 22 March 1960, this car’s sporting career began in April 1960, when it was driven by its owner in preliminary testing for the Le Mans 24 Hours, under number 45. On 1 May 1960, Jacques Baudon took part in the Critérium Paris-Ile-de-France and won the 500 – 1000cc GT class. Later that year, he and his wife entered the Tour de France Automobile, that took place between 15 – 23 September 1960, but they had to retire the car. In April 1961 they competed in the Rallye du Limousin, finishing 14th in the GT class. Days later, on 23 April, Mme Baudon won the Coupe des Dames in the Coupe Fernandez. Between 14 and 23 September 1961, the Baudon couple entered their DB in the Tour de France Automobile once again. In 1962 the car was sold to Melle Lancini, and later to Pierre Malia, and kept the same registration. It changed hands again on 12 May 1965, bought by Alain Beauvais, from the region of Indre, and was registered 384 FQ 36. Remaining in Indre, the car then sold to M. Hervier. On 26 January 1979, it was bought by Arlette Ranjo, from Cher, and registered 4243 QE 18. On 25 October 1985, this DB HBR5 joined the collection of an eminent Panhard collector from Brittany, Jean-Pierre Allain. Highly involved in the world of Motorsport from the end of the 1960s, Jean-Pierre Allain was responsible for chairing the Le Mans 24 Hours steering committee and for several years was president of the DB owners club that he founded up with Robert Sobeau. The car was restored, and painted a light blue very close to the DB Lakeland Blue, and fitted with lovely dark blue upholstery. It sold to the current owner in 2012, and was repainted. The brakes were also refurbished, the dampers replaced and the carburettors restored by Ets Provost. In 2017, the wiring loom was replaced and the brakes serviced. The presentation and mechanical condition of this quick car is perfect and it has the special features of a twin carburettor intake manifold and a quick-fill fuel cap. Eligible for most major events in the international calendar, such as Le Mans Classic and Tour Auto, this example with transparent history represents a rare opportunity for any lover of historic automobiles with character.

Green over Green leather. This XK 120 “early type” roadster came out of the Coventry factory in June 1951, for export to Casablanca. The car then came to France in 1970, into the ownership of H. Teisserenc, who then participated in many competitions at its wheel. The car changed hands in 1989 and was bought in 1991 by our collector. It then benefited from a first series of works such as the repair of the braking, the differential, and a change of the electrical harness system. XK150 disc brakes were then fitted at the front. From 1996, the restoration continued with removal of the bodywork and complete painting, and the mounting of a completely redone engine (by VSE).The chrome and the upholstery were redone too.

25 1955 Jaguar XK140 Maurice Gomm Special 804418DN €300,000 €360,000 Not sold N/A
Green over Green semi race. RHD. The special Gomm that interests us was commissioned by Sir Waterlow, a rich war hero, to Paul Emery (Emeryson). He wanted a special racing model, commonly called “Boy’s own racer”, to participate in the many events organised every weekend in peaceful England. The chassis used was that of a 1938 Grand Prix Alta Monoplace with independent rear wheels, the must of the brand, and powered by a 2.6 litre Aston Martin DB 2. The rear of the body was similar to that of a DB 2, and the front to that of a Keift or HWM 1. The result was used in England by Sir Waterlow in national events from 1955. The car was found at the end of the 80s in a barnfind and the dilemma was either to restore the whole, or to give new life to the Grand Prix Alta. This was done. The Alta 67-IS-GP was restored to its single-seater configuration and regularly participates in historic international races with David Baldock. The somewhat tired Aston Martin LB/49/32 engine was sold to Roger Ludgate, the founder of Lynx Motor. The complete and intact aluminium bodywork therefore remained put to the side until Charles Fripp, a Jaguar XK specialist from Twyford Moors in Hampshire had the idea of assembling it on an XK 140 chassis, the wheelbase being practically the same. He used a 140 chassis from 1955, moved the engine back to ensure better weight distribution and created an air inlet to house the XK engine and cool it, and the special Gomm came to life. The 3.4 litre engine was put into competition condition by Sigma engineering and associated with a Type E gearbox with 4 synchros, a reinforced clutch and a 3/54 autoblocking differential. An aluminium radiator combined with two fans, an alternator, adjustable dampers and stiffer polyurethane silent-blocks were used on all suspensions. 4-piston Coppercraft XK 150 caliper discs are mounted at the front. A rebuilt C-type lap counter shows the rpm counter-clockwise and a speedometer counter-clockwise, both placed on the typical aluminium instrument panel of the time. This special Jaguar has been invited to a number of important events in England FISCAR (Fifties Sports Car Racing Club) and HCS (Historic Sports Car Club) on roads and circuits (Silverstone, Castle Combe, Snetterton and Oulton Park), at the Royal Tour of Wessex as well as in Italy at the very chic “Modena Centro Ore Rally”, which presents 11 stages and events on the Mugello, Magoine and Misano circuits. The seller confirms that the car behaved perfectly during all these tests, without heating or overheating consumption of water or oil, that its use on road is very pleasant and also very effective for sporty driving. Indeed its 900 kg weight combined with a short wheelbase, its powerful and flexible engine and its well tuned suspensions give it a behaviour very close to that of a C type or an Aston Martin DB3S, light and precise but much more expensive. This magnificent specimen with its colourful but faultless history will, we hope, be a joy to an enlightened amateur wishing to own and enjoy a versatile racing car, easily usable on the road, powerful and fast, with a stunning and sleek line, marked by one of the best British designers of the last thirty years.

Red, White and Blue over Black and Red. Emblematic of the legend of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Mini Marcos GT is the historic race car that currently offers the best price to performance ratio. With five participations in Le Mans Classic race, our Marcos has an interesting track record since it was notably driven by the famous stuntman Rémy Julienne, friend of the owner who bought the car in 2009. Powered by a 1300cc unit from the Mini Cooper S but prepared as per the standards of the time, the car is capable of more than 200 km/h on the Hunaudières, with amazing cornering speeds at the curves. Ultra-light with its hull entirely made of fiberglass, the Mini Marcos enjoyed an advantageous power-to-weight ratio that gave the car the capability to keep pace with faster cars in winding sections. Since its last appearance at Le Mans in 2016, our Marcos has been the subject of extensive work. The engine has been completely redone with quality parts from the British car. It is fitted with a non-syncromesh gearbox and a self-locking differential. Rims, tires and paint are recent. In excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition this Mini Marcos GT is ready to be raced and will be delivered with its Historical Technical Passport and a tracking folder.

Yellow and Black over Race. Once confined to the small cars categories, the MARCOS had left their mark at the 1966 Le Mans 24 Hours, with the the Claude BALLOT LENA – Jean Louis MARNAT crew. After buying MARCOS from Jem MARSH in 1999, a Dutch consortium called Eurotech Viking gave a second chance to these singular racing cars by relaunching the manufacture of models intended for competition, within the framework of the big tourism races supervised by the FIA. The model on offer is a GT3 version of the Marcos Mantis which distinguished itself in the higly competitive Belcar Belgian Championship of Grand Tourism between 2002 and 2005 driven by works driver Cor Euser, Jeroen Bleekemolen, Danny van Dongen and Dutch Speed skating world champion Rintje Ritsma as well as Eurotech-Viking owner founder Wim Noorman who is now selling this personal race car. The car was exploited in race by the Eurotech team. Our Marcos participated three times in the 24 Hours of Zolder, has also raced in Spa, and undoubtedly remains one of the most competitive on the today’s market. It has an advanced development which differentiates it completely from the Mantis Challenge. Along with its 500 bhp dry sump Ford DOHC Modular V8 engine, it is equipped with large Brembo brakes, adjustable suspension and a Hollinger sequential gearbox. Built in 5 units in this FIA GT3 configuration the car is exactly as it had left the Assen TT track in September 2007 and needs to be restored. This model constitutes a formidable alternative in the GT3 category to the Porsche 996 and presents the advantage of having first-class performances for a very reasonable maintenance cost.

Restored about ten years ago in the United States, the car is in good general condition. Without being perfect, its external presentation is satisfactory and the bases are sound. The typical white leather upholstery of this generation is of the most beautiful effect and makes the living space very bright even when the roof is positioned. On the mechanical side, the car tested in Parisian traffic, works correctly and does not heat up. It also has its tool kit and jack. Less known because of its rarity, production hardly exceeded 400 units, the Jalpa is interesting by its body with removable roof, as well as by the brilliant performances allowed by its 3.5-litre V8 and 255 bhp in central rear position. The perfect toy to spend a beautiful summer. French carte grise.

White and Black over Red leather. via Philipsons Automobil AB to Mr Gunnar Giermark, Sqweden (1), complete with black hardtop. What is extraordinary is that it still has its original Mercedes-Benz wooden crate containing the soft top that has never been removed from the box or fitted to the car, packed carefully alongside the tonneau cover in red leather matching the seats. On 9 July 1963, the Mercedes-Benz agency in Stockholm carried out the first service, when the car was still being run-in, at 570 km. In November 1972, the MOT sticker, still present on the windscreen, showed a mileage of just over 1000 km ! The car had run a little over 400 km in 9 years ! More extraordinary still, and what makes this 1963 300 SL Roadster so special, is that the mileage today shows that it has covered a mere 1 372 km since leaving the factory ! This example is exceptional in every way. It is essentially ” new old stock “. The pedals display no sign of wear and look as if they have never been used. The red leather seats show no trace of discolouration and the seams also look like new. No restorer, however talented, could replicate work of this quality. The mats are perfect and the switches remain firm when pressed. We are thrilled to have discovered an example that is almost exactly as it was on leaving the factory. The bodywork is also in fantastic condition, as the car has always been stored in a dry, heated environment, sheltered from the extremes of the Swedish climate. It is clearly free from any corrosion, and retains the original paintwork, which we have measured the depth of, all over the body. All numbers are matching and all plaques are in correct positions, except for the paint plaque on the engine side of the bulkhead, which has never been there. We can safely say ‘never’ as there is no evidence of screw holes or rivets on the bulkhead. On the mechanical side, as the car has not been driven since 1972, and was used so little before that, recommissioning and a major mechanical service will be required before it takes to the road again.

Rosso Corsa over Crema leather. In its timeless Rosso Corsa livery, this spider is truly seductive. Thanks to its beige leather interior, the interior is very bright and has kept a beautiful state of presentation. Biscuit coloured carpets and a black alpaca hood in good condition complete the set. It must be specified that the mica of the hood will require a care to find more transparency. This car had an atypical story. Indeed, it was stolen and could recover its original identity and benefited from a retyping of its serial number by Etablissements Ferrari Charles Pozzi, justified on invoice. It was seriously revised 6 years ago at Sampaio Automobiles for nearly 5,000 €, the distribution having been replaced. Its meter only totals 23,000 km today and although it has been driven extremely little in recent years, it will require a service to meet the manufacturer’s requirements. In the tradition of the famous Ferrari berlinettes with central rear engine, the 360 Modena is an essential and still accessible landmark. More sought after than in F1 box, this spider offers a probably unbeatable price / pleasure ratio. French carte grise.

It bore the number 1 and the Spanish crew took second place, behind Juhan Kankkunen (Lancia Delta Integrale). During the same rally the previous year, Sainz and Moya had won it with a Celica from the same generation, the first of the season for Toyota. Also during the 1991 season, Marc Duez (with Klaus Wicha as co-driver) took part in the RAC Rally as a factory driver in the same car.

In 1994, the car was purchased by an Irish racing driver Ian Greer, before racing in 2000 with Arthurs Cathal who sold the car in 2002 , to its current owner, a meticulous Belgian collector. Passionate about rally cars, he entrusted Toyota Team Europe’s workshop manager Ernst Kopp, now head of workshop at Hyundai Motorsport, to restore the car and prepare it for historic racing events as well as keeping its original configuration.
