Market Finds – When one just won’t do...
The younger 911 might be the Porsche on every enthusiast and collectors’ shopping list right now, but this 1957 356 AT1 GT currently offered for sale by Serge Heitz in France is one utterly gorgeous reason to jump off that bandwagon.
A marriage made in Italy
A heady cocktail of Michelotti design, Vignale coach-building and a thumping V8 engine, this sensational 1953 Fiat ‘Otto Vu’ boasts so many intricate bespoke details that it would take you months to truly explore. Incidentally, we’d be delighted to spend so much time with the car – if anyone’s offering, that is.
Among a sea of red, yellow and even Miami Vice-style white classic Ferraris, a green example such as this Verde Pino 1978 Ferrari 308 GTB is an easy way to distinguish yourself as a true connoisseur. An early, steel-bodied example running on carbs, this 308 would be worthy of Il Commendatore himself.
It might have been christened the ‘Palm Beach’, but this 1962 Citroën DS is currently listed for sale in the Netherlands. If we were the car’s lucky new custodians, we’d head straight for Paris, where we’d cruise top-down and suspension raised from café to café.
