Remember those glorious Zagato and Pininfarina classic car simulators that were unveiled late last year? Click these blue words if you need a refresher – we get it, lots has happened since October 2020…

Well, one of the nine examples that have so far been hand-made at Pininfarina’s factory in Cambiano is heading up for auction. Yep, it’ll cross the block at RM Sotheby’s St. Moritz sale later this month with an estimate of somewhere between £95,000 and £120,000. Crikey – that’s a lot of money for a PC, right?

The Leggenda sim is exceptionally beautiful though, isn’t it? It’s apparently inspired by the Cisitalia 202 and features a Nardi wooden steering wheel, a manual gear lever, three pedals and a vintage Hanhart chronometer on the dash. The exterior is painted in a lovely Argento Vivo shade while the interior is Tobacco leather. Lovely. 

Created in collaboration with The Classic Car Trust, the Leggenda also brings access to The eClassic Club for three years, where the lucky buyer will be able to take part in training sessions, races and ‘informal group drives’ in a whole collection of different classics.

Fancy going halves, Internet?
