5 collector cars to put in your garage this week
The boss's car
The height of the Bugatti EB110 as a collector’s car hasn’t been reached yet, making the 154 examples built very desirable. This silver-grey GT version, built in 1993 with an elegant two-tone leather interior, once belonged to Jean-Marc Borel, the director of Bugatti Automobili, and is now for sale in Miami.
Schumacher’s first Ferrari
One of the most important Ferrari racing cars in recent Formula 1 history is currently for sale with Girardo & Co. in London. The Ferrari 412 T2, chassis number 157, was the first Scuderia race car that Michael Schumacher climbed into after moving from Benetton. He piloted the Ferrari at Fiorano and Estoril.
A Porsche GT fulfils all your wishes
This Porsche 356 Speedster GT, freshly restored by Serge Heitz Automobile Consulting in Cap Ferret, is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful examples that we’ve seen recently. With its rare hardtop and two engines — one for the road and one for racing — it should make both collectors and racing enthusiasts happy.
The Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R is one of the most successful touring cars in Japan’s racing history, and the S20 engine is a legend in itself. This ready-to-race “Hakosuka” example has a perfect race set-up and will be auctioned in Tokyo at the end of March.
At the moment, it’s the simple classics with character that get a lot of attention. In addition to the Fiat Panda 4x4, the Citroën Méhari has advanced from a commercial vehicle to a sought-after collector’s favourite. In contrast to most of its counterparts, this example from 1979 is in very good condition.
