RM Auctions' Villa d'Este sale
RM Auctions is hosting a spectacular summer auction this weekend. Fancy owning a prototype Lancia Stratos HF Zero? Bugatti Type 57C? Ford GT40 works prototype roadster? Step this way...
Posted: 17 May 2011
You want to sell your family. Maybe even your house. Sell it all and find some money, because this weekend sees RM Auctions hit the Villa d'Este concourse, and they're bringing along some rather fine machinery to tempt lots of moneyed types.
Like a prototype Ford GT40 works roadster, raced, binned, left for dead and then restored to Ferrari-baiting magnificence. Or a Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder, which, if we're not mistaken, is the dictionary definition of ‘lust'. Or the likely headline sale of the show, the Bugatti Type 57, replete with a supercharged 3.3-litre straight-eight and that delightful baby-vomit paintjob. Or the first prototype of the Lancia Stratos HF Zero, above, a car Top Gear rather admires.
The auction kicks off on 21 May and we've got a full preview for you to ogle. Have a click through and then, once you've calmed yourself, find money. Lots of it.
