RM Auctions’ First British Sale
North American auction house, RM Auctions, is holding its first British sale at Battersea Park on October 31st, in association with Sotheby’s. In addition to Bernie Ecclestone’s 50-strong collection, RM Auctions has announced the addition of two further collections, namely a selection of cars from the stable of businessman Giuseppe Prevosti plus 15 examples from the Brazilian collector, Abba Kogan.
The 20-strong Prevosti collection ranges from one of the earliest Ferrari road cars, a superb 1953 Ferrari 212 Inter, to the Lamborghini Miura P400 of 1967. Two Bizzarrinis, a 1965 5300 BA4 GT America and a 1966 5300 GT Strada, will also be offered. The outstanding German items in Prevosti’s collection are two early 1956 Porsche 356s.
The 15 cars from the Abba Kogan collection include a 1922 Hispano-Suiza Boulogne and two Delages, a 1927 GP 1500/8 and the 1936 3.0 D6; plus one of the last Delahayes ever made, the 1950 235 MS.
1961 Bentley S2
1966 Ferrari 275 GTB4
1956 Porsche 356 A 1599 GS Ca
1985 Rolls-Royce Carmargue
Of course, RM Auctions welcomes single motor cars as well as collections, and two of the more notable entries in October’s London sale are a rare and much-prized 1957 BMW 507 Roadster, one of only 260 models built, and a 1966 GT40 MKI.
