For lovers of blue-chip ‘70s sports cars, the collection also features a highly collectible E-Series 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GT by Scaglietti. Finished in its stunning factory-correct colour pairing of Blu Chiaro over a Nero interior, this example benefits from a recent restoration, and only completed its final running-in this year, so it presents in exceptional condition (Estimate: €300,000 – €350,000 EUR).

There is a remarkable offering of special-edition BMWs offered within the collection.

It underwent a major mechanical recommissioning in 2021 and is estimated to sell between €180,000 – €200,000 EUR. The 2001 BMW Z8 is presented in its factory-correct colour scheme of Titan Silver Metallic over a Red and Black Nappa leather interior (Estimate: €175,000 – €210,000 EUR).
