October 2012 Auction Alert: RM, London
An absolutely mouthwatering spectacle is due to hit London next week in this year’s RM Auctions London sale. Among the delights on offer is a quirky little Daf variomatic in pea green and a 64 Beetle: but if you have a few hundred thousand to spare, our favourite target would be the Ferrari Classiche certified 1964 250GT Lusso Berlinetta, estimated at £550,000 – £650,000. See below for pics.
The London sale will also feature an ultra-exclusive 2005 Maserati MC12, one of only 50 built from 2004-2005. Boasting just two owners and 2,500 kms from new, it is capable of sprinting 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds with a top speed exceeding 205 mph (estimate: £680,000 – £780,000).
The undoubted star lot of the German marques, though, is the rare, alloy-bodied 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, one of only 29 cars built by the factory. For this, the sale of both kidney’s probably wouldn’t suffice.
So for now, just get some moving loveliness from the RM video below.
