Messe Essen, Norbertstraße 2, Essen, Germany 45131
2pm, April 11th & 11am, April 12th, 2019
Essen hosts the worlds largest collector car fair and has traditionally partnered with Coys to offer an automobile auction. 2019 sees RM Sothebys join Coys in offering an auction although unlike Retromobile this is a relatively American style sale with over 200 lots on offer over the two sale days. While the majority of lots come from the Youngtimers Collection, a brace of Mercedes-Benz and a brace of hypercars lead the way.
The first of these Mercedes is the 1937 540K Cabriolet A estimated at €2 – 2.4 mil. ($2.24 – 2.688 mil.), a British delivered example, it was one of just 32 with the sporty Cabriolet A coachwork. This fine Cab A would later reside in France and Germany and most recently has been very well maintained, it also remains fully matching #s, making it a highly desirable example indeed. A 1959 300SL Roadster is the second Mercedes-Benz marquee lot with an estimate of €850k – 1 mil. ($952k – 1.12 mil.), originally delivered to France this example has been “upgraded” with an alloy engine block. Just four owners from new and a substantial investment with Kienle and others, accurate pricing is hard to assess as this car merges both good quality and a replacement engine, although I come down on the side of this being a touch expensive.
Two near unique hypercars also star, firstly the 2013 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse estimated at €1.5 – 1.7 mil. ($1.68 – 1.9 mil.), this example was built for the Geneva Motor Show in ’13 it features a unique spec, just 550km from new and perfect condition. Veyrons are now reducing in price as the Chiron becomes more available and while this is much cheaper than two years ago, its still too expensive at the estimate. The second hypercar is the 2018 Italdesign Zerouno estimated at €950k – 1.5 mil, one of just five ever made, offered in ‘as-new’ condition, this is a car that would be difficult to acquire which makes its offering a chance for some lucky collector. Impossible to value accurately, it seems like market would be somewhere around the low estimate.
Pre war classic highlights are:
- 1930 Voisin C23 – Est. €300 – 400k ($336 – 448k), just 355 of the C23 were made in period and just 15 are believed to have survived. Restored a great cost and very much art deco, like many Voisins this is a highly artistic and futuristic car. Market correct.
- 1932 Mercedes-Benz 370S Manheim Sport Cabriolet – Est. €400 – 550k ($448 – 616k), a glamorous example of the small 370S. Restored in the 2000s with a new OEM engine, otherwise matching numbers. Market correct for the quality.
- 1937 Mercedes-Benz 320 Wendler Cabriolet – Est. €110 – 160k ($123 – 179k), difficult to assess as the description paints it as both pre and post war but my take is it is a pre war chassis that was rebodied post WW2. 1 of just 4 built, restored 30 years ago and now aging nicely, this would be a good, interesting car for a collector of coachbuilt classics. Probably market correct.
Mid century collectible highlights are:
- 1949 Veritas BMW racer – Est. €450 – 550k ($504 – 616k), built on a genuine 1937 BMW 328 chassis, this was converted by Veritas to race spec at some point although that supposedly stalled due to their closure. Later fitted with a Bristol engine and transmission (based on BMW design of the same period), along with homemade coachwork it would take until the 1990s when it was restored for its English owner that it would be actually completed with Veritas RS coachwork. Restored by TT Workshops in ’98 this is a good but not perfect example of a very usable classic racer. Eligible for any and every race meeting anywhere, despite the concerns about its lack of originality, the price seems okay.
- 1954 Porsche 356 Pre A 1500 Cabriolet – Est. €250 – 280k ($280 – 314k), 1 of 270 built for ’55, fully restored to a high level. A little above market correct but likely okay.
- 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SC Coupe – Est. €450 – 550k ($504 – 616k), retained by Daimler Benz as a test and factory vehicle, recently restored by Kienle to a high level. Market correct.
- 1962 Aston Martin DB4 Series IV – Est. €345 – 395k ($386 – 442k). A rare US delivery with ‘Normalair Air Conditioning’ from new, restored back in the 1990s, market correct if in better than good condition.

- 1967 Maserati Ghibli 4.7 Coupe – Est. €180 – 250k ($202 – 280k). The 4th Ghibli made and displayed at the Geneva show in ’67, requires recommissioning but would be a unique talking point so value at the low estimate.
- 1970 Monteverdi 375/4 Saloon – Est. €200 – 240k ($224 – 269k), a super cool and very very rare original Monteverdi Saloon. Ideal if the 70s are your fave era. Very very difficult to assess but seems both expensive and market correct.
- 1971 Stutz Duplex Sedan by Padane – Est. €135 – 150k ($151 – 168k), A rather crazy Stutz with Italian Sedan coachwork. Try and find another. Seems a little expensive.
- 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Touring – Est. €450 – 550k, ($504 – 616k), an Italian car, now in excellent condition. Recent sales have pegged them around the low estimate, so market correct.

123 2015 Land Rover Defender SVX SALLDHSP8FA462376 €175,000 €225,000 N/R $196,000 $252,000 An audience expects to be in terms of stunts,’ said Sam Mendes, director of Specter. The 24th Bond movie did not disappoint: 1,000 extras were hired for the opening scenes alone, and lots of time, resources and money were spent in the movie. A later chase sequence went down a mountain in the Austrian Alps, involving a plane and Land Rover Defenders, which was allegedly the most expensive stunt scene in film history. The stunt coordinator was tasked with creating a vehicle that could survive being struck by a plane, subsequently rolled, but that also looked aggressive and sinister. Jaguar Land Rover’s special operations team commissioned specialists Bowler to help. The firm was an obvious choice with a long history of developing Defenders for off-road motorsport and for defence clients, including the British Government. The firm transformed 10 regular Santorini Black crew-cab 110s into the SVX Concept, or Specter Defender. The cars featured a huge 37-in. tires, heavy-duty roll cages plus toughened suspensions with rose joints and bilstein rally dampers. A hydraulic handbrake was installed and repositioned. The engine was tuned to give 180 bhp and Recaro seats fitted. Three ‘halo’ cars with high finishes were created for close-up shots while the rest were destroyed. This particular vehicle is being fitted with a tank of hydraulic fluid. The ship is being piloted by James Bond. It did, leaving the chassis bent with just 16 miles on the odometer. Though fully functional, the car is unsuitable for being on the road but is preserved as the moment filming stopped. Movie cars like this film, but this example was spared. Defender production ends in January 2016, making this the last of this iconic model. This car is therefore a must for Land Rover devotees or Bond memorabilia collectors.

131 1930 Voisin C23 47001 €300,000 €400,000 $336,000 $448,000 Although the C23 was manufactured in a modern style, it was successful by Voisin standards. In 1936, when the model went out of production, 355 chassis had been made, of which approximately 15 survive today. Voices were coachbuilt. Gabriel Voisin had a deep mistrust of coachbuilders, thinking that they were incapable of meeting his exacting engineering standards or achieving the demanding quality of his proprietary construction techniques. Indeed, C23 chassis 47001 is fitted with a Gabriel Voisin design. Given the chassis number, it is 47001 what the first or second C23 built.

Meijer, who was commissioned to build a complete restoration, and from 2005 to 2008, approximately € 160,000 was spent on bodywork, mechanical restoration, chrome and nickel plating, as well as a complete refurbishment of the interior. As it may at all possible, including the retention of many of the internal parts of the engine, which has survived in a remarkably intact state. The body was repainted to a high standard by Martin Dijkhof. When the interior was re-trimmed, a piece of older material was discovered that was likely the original design. This was copied in France and used to complete the restoration. With a mere 15 survivors of the model, a Voisin C23 is a very rare automobile. Its style is a testament to the artistic Art Deco-inspired functionality of Gabriel Voisin designs. It is an automobiles where the rear-mounted double spares and large traveling trunks, are well-positioned to the rear of the running boards, testify to the car’s usability for serious long-distance travel, while the Grebel spotlight, polished wheel discs and mechanicals, as well as the gorgeous Art Deco interior, lend a high style that can only be French. In beautiful restored condition, this voisin wants to be a focal point in any collection, at any informal gathering of collectors and at any concours d’elegance.
132 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SC Coupe 188.014.5500003 €450,000 €550,000 $504,000 $616,000 Mercedes-Benz 300 Sc chassis no. 188.014. 5500003 to 22 December 1955 to automobile factory Daimler-Benz AG at Mercedes street 136, Stuttgart Untertürkheim. Finished in special dark gray nitro-cellulose paint, at interior upholstered in light gray leather and a Becker Mexico radio mounted in the dash, the car was used by Daimler Benz as a test and factory vehicle to assess the newly developed injection system legendary Rudolf Uhlenhaut, who was heavily involved in the development of the injection system, so used the car. In September 1957, it was registered to the BP Petrol and Petroleum Company in Hamburg, where it has been used for testing fuel compounds. It is not known when the BP of the car. In 2007, a broker named Rolf Bunte contacted the famous German Mercedes-Benz specialist and restoration company Kienle Autotechnik on behalf of his client, to an older owner who was dissolving his collection. The car was still in its original nitro-cellulose paint with only 26,000 miles on the clock. It is likely that Kienle facilitated a sale to Hans-Joachim Sander in Berlin. From 2007 to 2009, the car was restored by Kienle Autotechnik on behalf of Sander, with great emphasis on originality and authenticity. The car was completely disassembled, the body professionally repaired in all areas and then repainted with nitro-cellulose paint in the original color. The engine and all other mechanicals, including the injection system, were restored to factory specifications. The interior was restored in perfect gray leather with black piping. Only original parts were used and, as far as they were no longer available, were replaced by parts that were reproduced according to original factory drawings. A 300 Sc epitomises all that is desirable in a Mercedes-Benz: prestige, presence and performance. It’s the modern successor to the great supercharged cars of the late 1930s, in particular the handsome 540K, whose style is echoed into the 300 Sc’s extended hood-line and fenders that flow gracefully over minimal running boards into a short rear end. In addition, this car boasts a fascinating period of history as a development car for Mercedes-Benz, plus later use by the BP petroleum company in Germany. Finally, the car has been given a world-class restoration by a leading specialist.
133 1932 Mercedes-Benz 370S Manheim Sport Cabriolet 84919 €400,000 €550,000 $448,000 $616,000 According to the Kommissionsnummer, or build sheet, 68066, 370 S chassis 84919 was shipped on 22 June 1932 by train via Weimar to the German town of Erfurt. In September 1933, the car was sold by the Daimler-Benz dealership in Nüremberg to a Herr Friedrich Wagner of Siernau-Scherneck near Coburg, Germany. Later, the car was owned by a furniture manufacturer named Stetter from Augsburg. The car survived the war and stood on blocks in the Stetter furniture factory until Mr Stetter’s heirs sold it in the 1950s to a dealer named Auto-Lehmann in Friedberg near Augsburg. By that time, the car had been fitted with a pointed Mercedes-Benz grille, possibly from a 320, and the original engine had been lost. Joachim Lehmann restored the car comprehensively, retrofitted an original flat radiator and gave it a red and white paint scheme complemented by an interior upholstered in red leather. After years of negotiations, this lovely 370 S Mannheim was acquired in the summer of 2004 by its current owner, who painstakingly restored it back to its original configuration as delivered in 1932. An expertise completed by the Mercedes-Benz Classic Centre in 2014 after the completion of the restoration concludes that while the engine is a replacement unit of the correct type, the car retains its original chassis, gearbox, and bodywork. The trim and tasteful lines of the 370S Sport Cabriolet are as appealing today as they were in the early 1930s. The model is rarely offered, and this is an exciting opportunity to acquire a very special and elegant pre-war Mercedes-Benz cabriolet that presents beautifully in every way.
134 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Cabriolet A 154078 €2,000,000 €2,400,000 $2,240,000 $2,688,000 The 540 K chassis no. 154078 was ordered on 4 August 1936 by British Mercedes-Benz in London on behalf of Page Motors Ltd. in Epsom, Surrey, a few miles southwest of London. On 7 December 1936, the finished car was delivered by Sindelfingen to be shipped by rail to London where it arrived on 12 December, resplendent in light green paint set off by a pale-yellow top, brown headliner and seats upholstered in the finest pig skin. Being an export to England, the chassis was right-hand drive and in the sporty Cabriolet A style with an integrated trunk and the spare wheel carried in an indentation in the elegantly sloping rear deck. Sindelfingen built 32 of these opulent cars, and only 18 are believed to exist today. The first owner was a Mr Paine who likely lived in Warwickshire, as the transport archive of the Kithead Trust shows that the car passed from an owner in Warwickshire to a second owner in London in December 1937 with license plate no. EPK 402. A photo of this car from the 1960s is pictured in Volume 2 of Jan Melin’s book Mercedes-Benz 8. In addition, the Kithead Trust states that the car was likely last licensed in the UK sometime around 1960 and that it was possibly exported in 1964, likely to France. The next owner was a Jean-Paul La Fuge who lived on Avenue Rapp in Paris. From 1992 to 2009, the car was in the ownership of Eduard Bollmeyer of Bünde, Germany, and in 2009, he sold it to Eric van Lammeren of Munich. Van Lammeren kept chassis no. 154078 until 2015, and from 2010 to 2014, he had important mechanical repair and fettling work carried out that totalled more than €50.000. In addition, approximately €40.000 were spent at the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in 2015 and 2016, all of which can be inspected in the very comprehensive file that accompanies the car. In 2015, a Manufacturer’s Expert Assessment of chassis no. 154078 was commissioned from Mercedes-Benz Classic. The conclusion of this very thorough and complete investigation into the details of the car was that while the restoration displays a different livery compared to when it was new, it is correct and numbers matching. Not only are major mechanical components such as the engine block, gear box, rear axle and steering assembly the original pieces manufactured by Mercedes-Benz for chassis no. 154078 in the fall of 1936, the body is also the original body that was first mounted on the chassis and all numbers found on the car match the Kommission paper, or build sheet. Even the composition of the steel of the chassis members was analysed, leading to the conclusion that the steel is the correct metal used by Mercedes-Benz as chassis steel for supercharged cars in the 1930s. The Mercedes-Benz 540 K remains one of the best-known and iconic models of the immediate pre-war years and was a technological yardstick by which the power and performance of lesser cars were measured. A number of body styles were offered, designed and constructed by Sindelfingen. All shared the powerful 540 K chassis and high-quality body construction. But while most of the sold cars were practical and roomy closed cars or four-seat Cabriolet B or C styles, few were bodied to the highly desirable and sporting Cabriolet A configuration. With its close-coupled two-seat body, set-back radiator, sweeping fenders and integrated trunk, it cut a dashing figure indeed. The 540 K Cabriolet A is a scarce model in itself. The extraordinary level of originality and authenticity offered by chassis 154078 makes it a very rare automobile indeed.

However, as of the winter of 1975–1976, the cars were already under production. Garlick and Team Normog decided to forget about the project, but John MacDonald of I. & J. MacDonald, the Morgan dealer of Lanchester, Durham, in the UK stepped in to see the project to fruition, and only one car would be built. According to Morgan factory records, chassis no. R8112 was completed by the factory on 24 June 1976. Further records show that it may have returned to the factory for further development, leaving again on 2 July 1976. Further factory records show that it was fitted with a non-standard ‘Traco’ Oldsmobile 215-cu. in. V-8 engine and a special gearbox (said to be from a Triumph TR8 prepared for rally use). Its aluminium bodywork and wings were finished in black paint with the interior trimmed red leather with a red tonneau cover and black convertible top and side screens. The car was also fitted with 15-in. wire wheels with centre-lock hubs shod in Avon tyres, front disc and aluminium rear brake drums and dual circuit non-servo brakes, a roll cage and aluminium floor boards, making for a bespoke, race-ready build. Allegedly, at its time this was the widest Plus Eight ever built and the only one with wire wheels. First registered in the UK with registration no. OTN 4 on 1 July 1976, John MacDonald used the car himself for about 2,000 miles on the road but unfortunately the engine failed and the block was destroyed, necessitating a replacement. Another Oldsmobile block was sourced but with conventional solid lifters. Later sold to David Johnston after a few competitive outings, Johnston continued to race the car after MacDonald converted the gearbox to a close-ratio five-speed. Passing through Paul Edwards and Charles Windridge in 1986, the suspension was rebuilt to include negative camber, Panhard rod, adjustable Gas-Spax dampers and anti-brake tramp struts, and Windridge competed with the car in the MSCC Morgan Challenge in 1987 before selling it to John Worrall, a well-known Morgan dealer. Worrall sold it to the consignor in Sweden that same year. Following an engine rebuild during the winter of 1987–1988, which included fitting a new camshaft, the Morgan’s locking rear differential was replaced with a limited-slip differential and ventilated discs with four piston callipers and the front and new disc brakes at the rear, replacing the original rear drums. Raced in several events in Sweden, it was predominantly used as a road car there before being placed into storage. It would be a wonderful car for either vintage racing events or simply to drive and enjoy on the open road. Boasting a unique story and specification, it is difficult to imagine a more exciting Morgan for the racing enthusiast.

Its wonderful period registration documents reveal the car in July 1970, and it remains in Scotland with the same family for the next 43 years. They drove the car back to Mercedes Benz, Stuttgart, in 1974 for a new clutch, service and tuning. In June 2009, a sympathetic restoration was taken. In 2014, RM Sotheby’s sold the car to the present owner who has used it for tours and refurbished the mechanical parts, such as suspension and brakes. In 2017, the present owner decides to repaint the car, stripping it down to bare metal at Speedy Garage near Lausanne in order to do so. Today, the original leather seats and carpets are retained and the immaculate dashboard features a rare His Master’s Voice Radio Mobile radio and speaker. It retains all the original handbooks and wallets. Cherished and rare, it’s a 1950s Mercedes Tourer.

After 20 years of ownership, it passed to Giannantonio Bussinello of Verona and one other owner before being purchased by the current seller. It is in remarkably original condition, particularly its distinctive interior. In 2015 the car received a full service, including cam belt replacement and turbo reconditioning. Even a quarter century after its production, the legendary Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione continues to set the standard for performance and road-handling. This is an amazing opportunity to acquire an Evo 1, in a rare ‘Martini 5’ Special Edition. 255 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale 829ARO001832 €480,000 €520,000 $537,600 $582,400 Lancia’s production records coordinate chassis no. 829AR0 001832 with Bertone body no. 397 and confirm the original colours of Azzurro with “Sereno” carpets, black Alcantara seating surfaces, black seat shells and dashboard and black flocked door panels.

Chassis no. 829AR0 001832 was sold to Guido Bignardi of Palermo, first registered PA 421048 on 21 February 1975. Remarkably, Bignardi kept the car for 30 years before selling it to Carlo Pungetti of Bologna on 20 March 2005. Pungetti retained the car for 10 years, when it was purchased by the current owner. It has never been restored, remains original throughout and appears as-delivered without the optional roof spoiler and roof-mounted air deflector. The paint appears largely untouched, and the interior remains totally original, remarkably including undamaged seats, whose lightweight Alcantara facing is almost invariably seen frayed, if not replaced. The car comes with its original Italian libretto and owner’s manual. A preserved survivor, this Stratos HF Stradale presents the opportunity to own one of the most original remaining examples of this rally legend. 256 1982 Lancia 037 Rally Stradale ZLA151AR000000022 €350,000 €400,000 $392,000 $448,000 0022 was first registered PA 733158 on 24 May 1984 to Francesco Pio Bignardi from Palermo. The Bignardi family is well known in Italian rally circles, but 022 remains a road-going example and was not used in competition. Carlo Pungetti of Bologna purchased the car in 2005, but never registered it. Instead it remained warehoused with the rest of his collection. In 2015, it was sold to the current owner in Germany. Today, chassis no. 0022 remains in an unrestored condition and presents a rare opportunity to acquire an important group B homologation special. 257 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale ZLA038AR000000155 €450,000 €550,000 $504,000 $616,000 A true time capsule, this 1985 Delta S4 Stradale has covered only 2.196 miles in its 30-plus year history.

The consignor notes that the interior and top are still original, and that it has been repainted in its original shade of glacier green and dark green leather interior. During its time in Italy, it has been well maintained and preserved. Importantly, both the power top and power windows are said to work perfectly. Seldom seen in continental Europe, 1950s Cadillacs are representative of post-war American growth. These cars were a symbol of success for those lucky enough to own and drive them, and Cadillac ownership was made famous in automotive culture as the embodiment of the American dream. For cruising route 66 or just driving down to the local diner, in 1950 there was no better option. 259 1959 Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Touring AR102.04.00384 €70,000 €100,000 $78,400 $112,000 Although this is the second edition of Spider’s Life in America, Max Hoffman’s Famous New York dealership was released in March of 1959 in Louisiana, as a sticker on the windshield prior to restoration suggests. According to documents in the car’s history file, which was purchased by David Kaufman of London in 1989, it was probably taken for a nut-and-bolt restoration which never took place. Still dismantled, the car was purchased by the current owner in 1996 as a restoration project Andrew Thorogood in London and Paolo Bergia in Pinerolo, Turin, where painstaking attention to originality was paid. Amazingly, during the restoration no rust was found, and no major metalwork was needed. Further work has been carried out between 2006 and 2011 to ensure a perfect condition throughout. The car was refinished in the quintessential color of Rosso Alfa, and the seats were trimmed in leather instead of the original leatherette. Alfa Romeo is a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of the most desirable spiders from the years of ‘La Dolce Vita’. 260 1976 Porsche 911 Turbo 930 670 0564 €150,000 €200,000 N/R $168,000 $224,000 Here is a selectable example of Porsche’s awesome 911 Turbo from the 1976 model year, finished in the ever-popular Guards.

Seduca de Ville coaching in the style of Inskip was fitted in 1992-1993. The consignor bought it from Tony Paalman in the late 1990s and attesting to the quality of the work, it has been shown at the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza in 1997 and Paleis het Loo in the Netherlands. A gorgeous example of one of Rolls-Royce’s most exceptional automobiles, it will surely attract lots of attention wherever it goes. 262 1929 Chrysler Series 75 Roadster CY7L €110,000 €130,000 $123,200 $145,600 Between 2011 and 2015, the Series 75 Roadster offered here was exhaustively professionally prepared for the Mille Miglia Storica and Le Mans Classic as a faithful recreation of the 1929 MM class-winning Leonardi/Barbieri car. Documented by over $100,000 US in invoices, it has undergone the fitting of a custom intake manifold with three restored Winfield carburettors and a new fabricated aluminium head. All-new brakes and chassis bushings were fabricated in addition to a suspension, an exhaust, a clutch, and ring-and-pinion gear, as were the five custom Borrani hubs and wire wheels.

In 1975, it was shipped to Australia. There it was changed from its original LHD configuration to RHD in order to drive legally on the roads of that country. The Dino remained in Australia until November 1998 when it was exported to the UK, acquiring the registration ANM 275H in Great Britain. In 2002 the Dino was issued a new personalized registration of DAJ 12. In 2007 it was passed to a Belgium dealer, then to a German dealer and then to a private German collector in 2010. At some point, the car was repainted red and was converted back to LHD, although the exact date of the conversion is not known. The Dino’s current owner acquired the car in 2013 through a Dutch dealer. The Dino was treated to a high-quality restoration that included stripping the car’s body to bare metal and painting it back to Blu Sera Metallizato, just as it left the factory. According to its current owner, this stunning 1970 Dino 246 GT is properly sorted, ready to be enjoyed and an absolute pleasure to drive. 268 1970 Ferrari 365GTB/4 13183 €550,000 €650,000 $616,000 $728,000 Chassis no. 13183 was originally completed at Ferrari’s facilities in Maranello in February of 1970. It emerged from the factory finished in Rosso Chiaro (20-R-190) paintwork over a Nero (VM 8500) leather interior, built to left-hand-drive European specifications, equipped with the early Plexiglass nose, as well as power windows, a radio, knock-off Cromodora alloy wheels and the desirable factory air-conditioning. It would remain in its native Italy and was delivered to Romeo Pedini, Ferrari’s dealer in Perugia, Italy. Its first owner would be a Mr. Rossi, who purchased the car that same month. Registered under registration no. PG 157308, the car remained in Italy until at least 1973 prior to moving to Milan. At some point thereafter, it was exported to the U.S. and noted as being in the ownership of Avi R. Brand of Woodbury, New York, a small town north of New York City by 1979. In 1982 it was sold to an undisclosed owner who offered the car for sale with Graham Cox, Hallandale, Florida, and Motorcars International of Springfield, Missouri, in 1994. Ferrari Market Letter ads described it as ‘365 GTB/4, S/N 13183 (1970 Euro prod.). Red with tan interior. Plexiglass nose, Borrani wire wheels, factory a/c. Same owner since 1982. 38,409 miles. Extremely nice and original. Don’t miss this one.’ Another Ferrari Market Letter ad shows the car offered in California in April/May 1995; it was then sold to a collector in Japan later that year. Boasting an older restoration, the car received a recent cosmetic freshening and is presented today in its as-delivered colour combination. In December 2018, the Daytona was shipped to Joe Macari’s workshops in London, an authorized Ferrari aftersales service centre. There, the car received some service work, with the intention of bringing it in line for Ferrari Classiche certification. It was fitted with a correct type brake fluid reservoir and wood-rimmed steering wheel, amongst other minor items. Now granted Ferrari Classiche certification, the accompanying ‘red book’ states that it retains its original engine but is fitted with a replacement gearbox of the correct type. An icon of performance and engineering, the Daytona is a staple of any world-class Ferrari collection for its stunning good looks, impressive performance and grand touring capabilities. An early example now boasting Ferrari Classiche certification, this example would be a thrilling addition to any collection. 269 1999 Ferrari 360 Modena 124916 €60,000 €80,000 N/R $67,200 $89,600 Less than 10,000 km from new, Desirable manual transmission example, Presented in beautiful condition throughout and ready to be enjoyed, Comes with tailor-made car cover 270 1954 Jaguar XK120SE Roadster S676366 €80,000 €100,000 N/R $89,600 $112,000 Desirable ‘Special Equipment’ model with C-Type–style cylinder head, Stunning dark blue over beige colour scheme, Regularly serviced and maintained in current ownership 271 1959 Porsche 356A 1600 Coupe 106834 €120,000 €140,000 $134,400 $156,800 This stunning 1959 Porsche 356 A Coupé, amongst the final As produced, was delivered new to California.

297 1979 Mercedes-Benz 500TE AMG 123.190.12.010043 €60,000 €70,000 $67,200 $78,400 AMG was far from a household name in the late 1970s and early 1980s, but the firm had established an excellent reputation for modifying Mercedes-Benzes. One of their earliest and most celebrated conversions was fitting the W123 chassis with a 5.0-litre V-8, costing a whopping 65,000 Deutsche Marks. It is rumoured that only a pair of wagons, sedans and a single coupé were converted. While its early history is not known, this example was discovered in early 2013 by Henric Nieminen, a California-based AMG enthusiast. The previous owner was not aware of the history of the car but after seeing it in person, it was far more special than the ad let on. The intrigue increased after inquiring with Mercedes-Benz. The very early M117 5.0-litre V-8 fitted to the car was found to not have been allocated to any specific chassis, yet boasted tubular headers, downpipes, secondary oil cooler and motor mounts custom designed to fit the W123 wagon’s engine bay. The car also retained a full AMG body kit, OE skid plate, cast aluminium rear suspension, date-stamped 1979 Recaro seats with upholstery that matched the door cards, taxi upper console for additional gauges and other hallmarks indicative of an early AMG conversion. The sum of these parts suggests the car was built in period by either AMG in the United States, or by someone who had intimate knowledge of Mercedes-Benz and AMG products at a time when few people would have had such knowledge outside AMG. However, there is no conclusive proof or documentation to support this. The car was cosmetically refreshed over the course of 2013 and retained by Nieminen for the next four years. Interestingly, it was used by BBC America’s Top Gear America in a segment, celebrating 50 years of AMG. In 2017, it was purchased by the consignor and imported to Switzerland, where it has remained ever since as one of the highlights of his collection of pre-merger AMGs.

The engine has also been bored out to 5.4 litres by the engineers at Affalterbach, increasing power to 310 bhp, enabling a 0–60 sprint of 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.

354 1960 Porsche Diesel Junior 108K K 9748 G €19,000 €25,000 N/R $21,280 $28,000 While many Porsche tractors were used as their manufacturers intended and lost to time and the arduous nature of farming, this example is certainly the exception to the rule. Delivered new to the Mattioda Family and their farm in Castellamonte, near Turin, Italy, this Diesel Junior 108 K remained at their farm and in their ownership until only January of this year. Having acquired a new tractor to replace their Porsche in the 1980s, rather than trade it in, the family opted to keep the tractor and parked it in a corner of their barn where it remained untouched for decades. Hugely original throughout, it still bears the original sticker and paintwork, and is reported to still be in running and driving condition, having never been fully restored. Opportunities to acquire a Porsche-Diesel like this certainly do not come every day. For the Porsche enthusiast looking for a stablemate to their 356, it would be difficult to do better than this.
