Gallery: these ten amazing cars are coming up for sale
RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba sale includes some proper stunners
2018 Alfa Romeo Mole Costruzione Artigianale 001
Holy Mole. As you can see, this is no ordinary Alfa Romeo 4C. Last year a company named Up Design took a 25,000-mile 4C and plonked a truly stunning body on top of that famous carbon tub.Advertisement - Page continues below
2019 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake
You may recognise this Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake from when we covered its listing a while back. A car this cool qualifies for a full write-up…
1987 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato
Aston has a long history with Zagato, and if the 80s Vantage doesn’t make you weak at the knees we don’t know what will. This wasn’t just a rebody job either – the Italians chucked out any unnecessary trim, removed the back seats and even shortened the chassis to cut weight by 10 per cent.Advertisement - Page continues below
1967 Ferrari 330 GTC Zagato
Oh lord we’re stuck in a Zagato hole again. This happened the other day too when we stumbled upon the madcap Ferrari 348 TB Zagato Elaborazione that’ll also be at Villa Erba. We need help. This 330 GTC is actually the only one in the world with a Zagato body after it was crashed way back in 1972 and the Pininfarina coachwork was binned.
1948 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Super Sport Coupé
This is an almost fully-original, late 1940s Alfa Romeo. Need we say any more?
Well, this car’s first owner was Dr. Antonio Mario Savino – the Argentinian Minister of Industry and Trade in 1949. Since then it has been immaculately restored and became a concours winner.
1959 Fiat-Abarth 750 GT 'Double Bubble' Zagato
We’re sorry if this picture made you weep. Abarth (the kings of wringing everything from a little Fiat engine) + Zagato (lightweight bodywork makers) = the ultimate sports car recipe.
1967 Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2
The 400 GT wouldn’t be everyone’s choice when looking for a classic Lambo, but this car just exudes style. It’s also only had two owners from new – the first of whom had the car for 50 years and put over 38,000 miles on the clock. Isn’t it nice to know a car has been properly loved?Advertisement - Page continues below
2010 Porsche 911 Sport Classic
The Sport Classic is one of the most desirable 911s of modern times. When it was announced in 2010, all 250 build slots were sold in under 48 hours. The ducktail spoiler, Fuchs-style alloys and short-shift manual gearbox gave the car that beautiful retro feel.
2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss
My word. This SLR Stirling Moss is one of only 75 examples of a car designed as a modern homage to the 300 SLR that Stirling Moss guided to victory in the 1955 Mille Miglia. Expect big numbers to happen at the sale.Advertisement - Page continues below
1957 Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster
This 356 Speedster is in a beautifully restored condition. That red with gold badging works well doesn’t it?
So, if your numbers came up on the Euromillions this weekend, which cars would you be sticking your hand up for come auction time?
