With which classic car would you open the new Alpine pass season?
Even though this winter has gripped the Swiss mountains particularly tightly, the snow will soon mercifully melt away and unlock some of the finest driving roads Europe has to offer in time for the summer season. And because it’s always good to update your sporting equipment, it’s probably worth taking a look at the catalogue for Oldtimer Galerie Toffen’s next classic car auction, which takes place on 25 May in Lucerne.
Those who raise their paddles at the right moment might soon be driving across the Flüela Pass into the Engadin in a Jensen Interceptor Convertible. Like Rudolf Caracciola, you could storm the Klausen Pass with a Mercedes-Benz 190 2.5 Evo II or follow in the tyre tracks of James Bond on the Furka Pass at the wheel of an Aston Martin V8 Volante. You can find our 10 favourite lots listed below or, alternatively, browse the entire catalogue in the Classic Driver Market.
