The first lot is a matching-numbers Porsche 911T from 1969 that, according to BV Collector Car Auctions, is in exceptionally good unrestored condition. The elegant ivory coloured original paint is virtually all preserved, as is the original blue Californian license plates and the optional five-speed gearbox. In total, this 911 has had just four owners, the first of which drove and maintained the car for an impressive 37 years. Given its quality, we don’t think the car’s pre-sale estimate of 100,000–120,000 euros is at all unreasonable.
This 1979 Ferrari 400 GT from BV Collector Car Auctions is also a true showpiece. Its previous three owners have covered just 24,500km with the charismatic Gran Turismo, which is painted in the oh-so-1970s shade of Azzurro Metallizzato. The general condition is correspondingly good, and the original interior has been very well preserved. Meanwhile, more sporting drivers should be interested in the fact that it is one of just 147 examples fitted with a manual transmission. The Ferrari over the last few years has been restored at a cost of more than 100,000 euros. BV Collector Car Auctions now expects it to sell for between 125,000–140,000 euros.
Anyone who achieved something in the economic miracle of the 1960s and wanted to make it known could effectively do so with the generously chrome-plated and rear-finned Mercedes-Benz 300 SE. The exclusive convertible versions, especially, were considered to be the ultimate status symbols in Germany and beyond – after all, the open cruiser cost more than a 300SL Roadster. This wonderful example in grey-beige over cream leather was built in 1962 and benefits from a recent restoration in Italy. It is without questions one of the most beautiful 300 SEs we have seen on the market in recent years. Its pre-sale estimate is 225,000–250,000 euros.
