RM to auction extraordinary racing car collection in Paris

RM has announced some significant entries to its inaugural Paris sale – taking place during Rétromobile week 2014 – including a bevy of competition cars from the famous Harburg collection…

Described by the Canadian auction house as including “some of the most desirable and iconic racing cars ever made”, the Harburg collection boasts no fewer than five Porsche competition cars. Among them are not only a pair of sports-racing prototypes in the form of a 917/30 (estimate: 2.2m euros plus) and a 956 (estimate: 2.2m euros plus), but also a 1964 904 Carrera GTS (estimate: 1.1m euros plus).

Also from the collection comes Jaguar D-type chassis XKD 520 (estimate: in excess of 4.1m euros), and an ex-Phil Hill Ferrari 750 Monza Spider (estimate: in excess of 1.8m euros) which was delivered new to Luigi Chinetti Motors in 1955.
