Over 800 lots will be offered as part of an auction that will be the “largest, automotive-themed private collection sale ever staged in Europe” and none will have reserves.

 

The highlight of the sale is a Ferrari 275 GTB/6C. It is one of only nine cars originally fitted with alloy bodywork, six carburettors and torque tube.

 

Of the items offered, Augustin Sabatié-Garat commented:

 

“These are cars that buyers today want and are actively hunting for. The fact that so many of them are being exposed to the world again after many years in hiding sets the stage for one of the coolest and most exciting auction events of not only 2016, but in RM’s history”.

 

“The sheer size of the collection means that enthusiasts will be spoilt with variety. If you’re in the market for a Porsche 911, you’re in luck, with some 60 different examples offered without reserve. If a Jaguar E-Type needs to land in your garage, the sale will feature a selection of 21 different examples. The list goes on and encompasses a tremendously diverse range of categories… it’s like an automotive Aladdin’s Cave”.
