Bonhams have chosen to reboot their Swiss classic car auction almost a decade after their Christmas eve sale of Ferrari’s in Gstaad ended. Headed by a collection of supercars owned by a African dictator that are being sold by the Swiss government to raise funds that will be donated to charity and otherwise offering a curated collection of recent desirable cars this is a fascinating sale.
The first 25 cars (of just 70 on offer) come with Equatorial Guinea registration and were seized from their owners Parisienne home after NGOs were successful in winning a case of embezzling funds against their owner and even the briefest of google searches will reveal the remaining details. While the relatively benign deputy President of a small African nation is not necessarily notorious enough to effect values in any way it does beg the question of whether notoriety does or should effect a choice to buy or the value of whatever one might seek to buy. In the same way a house that has had a gruesome murder happen within it will always be worth less. Transfer those feelings to a car that was owned by someone notorious, say Donald Trump, Maggie Thatcher, Lady Diana Spencer, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein or even Adolf Hitler. Some of their cars would sell for a very large premium regardless of their backgrounds but surely someone such as Hitler would revolt as many buyers as enthrall and the market would shrink in size dramatically.
Mr. Obiangos collection includes the marquee lot, a 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, one of nine produced in 2014. Based on the Aventador, these Veneno’s featured very advanced open topped bodywork but otherwise didn’t revolutionise anything and yet nine were sold at 3 million EURO a pop. Obiango’s car is #7 and was ordered in Off-white over Beige and has covered just 325km from new. Bonhams are asking CHF5.2 – 6.2 mil. ($5.25 – 6.26 mil.) which seems very, very high even for a car that is rare as rare can be, its basically double its original cost but so what its at no reserve so will sell whatever the bid, I would guess somewhere around the $3 million mark would be market correct.
Other highlights from the collection are:
- 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari – Est. CHF2.6 – 2.8 mil ($2.6 – 2.8 mil.), a lovely LaFerrari in Yellow with just 894km from new. Market correct.
- 2003 Ferrari Enzo – Est. CHF1.8 – 2 mil. ($1.8 – 2 mil.), Another lovely yellow Ferrari, just 21km from new. Wonderful car. Estimate seems a touch light.

- 1949 Alfa Romeo 6C2500SS Pininfarina Cabriolet – Est. CHF380 – 430k ($384 – 434k), the gorgeous Pininfarina Cabriolet, restored thru 2010. Market correct at the low estimate.
- 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing – Est. CHF1.1 – 1.4 mil. ($1.11 – 1.41 mil.), Canadian Gullwing in fantastic colours, restored at some point and never used. Value depends on the actual condition of the car, both estimates could be valid but inspection would be necessary to know.
- 1959 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster – Est. CHF770k – 1.1 mil. ($780k – 1.11 mil.), patinated example in “beautiful” condition. Market correct at the low estimate.

- 2018 Mercedes-Maybach G650 Laundalette – Est. CHF850k – 1.05 mil. ($860k – 1.06 mil.), a brutish and rare G650 Maybach. Another incredibly rare but crazy expensive car. Probably still market correct.
Affordable classic highlights include:

44 1969 Lamborghini 400GT 2+2 415 CHF300,000 CHF400,000 CHF 345,000 $380,535 Mid Thanks are due to Lamborghini historian Marcel Wallenburg for his research into this interesting history. It has long been believed that this is a Middle Eastern buyer, an unusual occurrence at a time when Lamborghini was virtually unknown outside Europe and the USA. It carries chassis number ‘0415’, but an earlier (two-seater) 400GT with the same number is known to be in a US collection. Mr Wallenburg speculated that at some stage the owner might use the other car ‘s papers to import it into his home country. Sure enough, a check in Mr Wallenburg’s files revealed that the Touring body number of the car offered – ‘18998’ – matched to chassis ‘0634’, which had been bought new in 1966 by the same Iraqi gentleman who already owned ‘0415’. It was common practice at that time for Lamborghini – and others – to accommodate buyers. It is not known if ‘0634’ was renumbered by the factory before delivery or by the first owner. However, it is known that it was already identified as ‘0415’ when it was imported into France in 1969 and owned by Mr Perez Sotto, an Argentinean gentleman living in Paris. At the time the leather is finished in light metallic blue with mustard leather upholstery. The next owner was Mr Bothorel, who was followed on 19th August 1981 by Mr Dumas, who registered the Lamborghini as ‘3967 KO 92’ and had it repainted in a dark metallic gray, while a mechanical restoration was entrusted to veteran Lamborghini Guru (and former to import) Edmond Ciclet. Dr. Philippe Poitout, who reregistered it as ‘3763 XG 77’ and had Mr Ciclet carried out further works between 1985 and 1988. This included a replacement alternator (80-Amp version); radiator overhaul; adding relays to the ignition and lighting circuits; replacement rear suspension arms (improved Miura S type); seatbelts; refreshing the upholstery; and fitting a battery cut-out. Dr. Poitout drove the car until 1997 when his roadworthiness test recorded an odometer reading of 84,834 kilometers. In 2000, after Dr. Poitout’s passing, his son was fitted with a steel exhaust and carried out further work. In August 2000 Mr Jacques Raynal was acquired the car (now registered ‘400 TF 03’) and on 26th July 2007 (at 87,300km) it was a specialist dealer in Cannes, who commissioned an overhaul to include the steering, valves, carburetors, gearbox, and electric windows. On the 1st of November, the Swiss collector, and Edmond Ciclet was again entrusted to perform a thorough check-over. On this occasion the engine and gearbox were removed; the clutch and head gaskets replaced; the electrical system, starter motor and overhauled alternator: the chassis re-jigged and reinforced; and various other tasks attended to. Next to all taxes being paid to the body of the body is painted to the body of the body. The Lamborghini has been used in the past, but it has been used in the past by a team of full-time mechanics to ensure that it is kept ready for use.
