LONDON, ENGLAND – May 9, 2024 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – RM Sotheby’s is delighted to announce an incredible selection of exciting consignments for its inaugural Cliveden House sale, hosted in the heart of the Berkshire countryside, just a stone’s from London. In what is set to become an annual fixture in the calendar, the auction will perfectly complement RM Sotheby’s long-standing London sale held in November.

Star of the show will be the 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta by Scaglietti. One of Maranello’s most revered models, it featured a shorter wheelbase than the 250 GT TdF, as well as a lighter chassis and more aerodynamic bodywork. Beneath that coachwork lay a mighty 3-litre Colombo V-12, in addition to disc brakes all round, which helped make the model incredibly successful in motorsport. The 34th of 165 examples built, this car was subject to a full restoration by Carrozzeria Autosport in 2009 and is offered with Ferrari Classiche certification, in addition to documented ownership by marque historian Marcel Massini (Estimate: £5,000,000 – £6,000,000).

2014 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse

It is not just supercars from the 1960s that will be offered at Cliveden House, with an extremely rare and beautifully specified 2014 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse sure to cause a stir. One of just 92 Grand Sport Vitesses ever built, this was the Bugatti model that set a record for the world’s fastest open-top production sports car in 2015, clocking a speed of 254.04 mph. Presented in eye-catching Blue-Black over a Tangerine Leather interior, this wonderfully optioned supercar has just 4,086 kilometres on the clock and documented service history with HR Owen Bugatti London. Arguably the definitive hypercar, this ground-breaking machine is estimated to sell between £2,000,000 – £2,500,000.

1963 Ferrari 250 GT:L Berlinetta Lusso by Fantuzzi - 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS by Pininfarina

A further Ferrari highlight at Cliveden is the 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS by Pininfarina.One of Ferrari’s most beautiful high-performance open-top cars from the 1960s, this example is number 75 of a mere 99 built, and benefits from a stunning body-off restoration performed by GTO Engineering between 2016 and 2017, the cost of which totalled in excess of £120,000. This fine Colombo V-12-powered open tourer boasts an extensive history file and Ferrari Classiche certification. Offered from 12 years of ownership, it is now ready to join the stable of its next custodian (Estimate: £1,300,000 – £1,600,000 GBP). This is followed by a spectacular 1963 Ferrari 250 GT/L Berlinetta Lusso by Fantuzzi. Boasting early coachwork modifications by Fantuzzi in the style of the 330 LMB, it was originally delivered to Luciano Pederzani, co-founder of the Tecno Formula 1 team, before later ending up in the hands of radio and TV broadcaster Chris Evans. The car was subject to a comprehensive restoration carried out by DK Engineering in 2011 and has subsequently been maintained by GTO Engineering. With rare and unique early coachwork by Fantuzzi, this special one-of-a-kind Ferrari presents a truly unique ownership proposition (Estimate: £1,100,000 – £1,500,000 GBP).

1965 Aston Martin DB5 Convertible

Another fine example of open-top motoring to be offered at Cliveden House will be the 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Convertible. Believed to be the penultimate example of 123 Aston Martin DB5 Convertibles built, it has had just four owners from new. Presented in the beautiful shade of Platinum over a red Conolly leather interior with a red Everflex soft-top, it was subject to over €80,000-worth of restoration by German workshops in 2016. A fine example of Aston Martin’s flagship tourer in its most desirable, high-performance, open-air form, this beautiful car is estimated to sell for between £800,000 – £1,000,000 GBP.

Further highlights include a 1939 Bentley 4-¼ Litre ‘MX Series’ Sedanca Coupé by Park Ward, which will be offered without reserve and is estimated to sell for between £80,000 – £140,000 GBP.

Mulliner (Estimate: £30,000 – £50,000 GBP) and a 1990 Mini Margrave by Wood & Pickett, which was the last Mini built by Wood & Pickett of London (Estimate: £40,000 – £50,000 GBP).
