Ferrari 250 LM
Rarer and more exclusive than a 250 GTO, this Ferrari 250 LM, #5901, is the 10th of 32 examples to leave the Maranello factory. It will also be the occasion for Artcurial Motorcars to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the model.
The 250 LM is a true legend in the history of international motorsport, as it was the last Ferrari to win the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1965, in the hands of Masten Gregory and Jochen Rindt. Chassis 5901 was entered by NART as a reserve car for the 1966 Daytona 24 Hours. It is one of the two 250 LM cars that never went through the throes of competition, which allowed it to keep all its original components (chassis, engine, gearbox, bodywork).
After spending its life in the hands of great American collectors, including Massimo Ferragamo, it crossed the Atlantic to join a European collection in 1997. It was then restored to its original condition in the workshops of the famous British specialist DK Engineering. Having remained in the possession of the same French owner for 20 years, this work of art will be exhibited from 1 February at the Retromobile Show, prior to the sales on 3, 4 and 5 February.
Mercedes AMG collection
Artcurial Motorcars will present a collection of Mercedes-Benz AMGs from the 1980s at the Retromobile show in February.
This collection includes a 1000 SEC Carat (Estimate: €200,000 - 300,000), one of twenty 560 SEC AMG 6L Wide Body factory cars (Estimate: €200,000 - 300,000) and one of only three exceptional SEC AMG Gullwing factory cars (Estimate: €600,000 - 800,000).
Ferrari 250GT Lusso
From an important collection, this sublime Lusso has a Ferrari Classiche certificate.
1 Constructors' World Championship title, 1 Drivers' World Championship title, 9 victories, 11 podiums & 3 pole positions. This is the track record of the Benetton B195 that propelled the eponymous team and Michael Schumacher on top of the world at the end of the 1995 Formula 1 season.
Bart Rosman collection
On February 3, Artcurial Motorcars will present the collection of Bart Rosman, the well-known and respected Dutch collector of the first hour. His good taste, both aesthetic and mechanical, as well as his talents as a tuner and driver earned him the admiration and friendship of the Bugatti and Ferrari world.
Today, the cars to which he was most attached will be presented at auction, without reserve price: the Ferrari 340 America Barchetta Ex-24Heures du Mans 1951, the Bugatti Type 35 C which finished 4th at the Monaco GP in 1929 and the Bugatti Type 43 Grand Sport in fantastically preserved condition.
In addition to these three exceptional pieces, there is a fabulous project of a Bugatti Type 35 that he had undertaken in the 1980s and hundreds of pieces of the brands he loved.
And much more ...
Many vehicles will complete this incredible selection, which will be auctioned over 3 days.
