Oldtimer Galerie brings the auction year to a close with its 29 December sale in the Swiss ski resort of Gstaad. Topping the early entries is a 1964 Ferrari 250 GT/L, delivered new through the US importer Luigi Chinetti (estimate CHF1,500,000 – 1,700,000). The Lusso was restored in the 1980s at the renowned Toni Auto in Maranello, with the interior renewed by the equally celebrated Luppi in Modena. More recently it’s formed part of two collections for 20 years and was repainted in its original shade of Rosso Cina in 2018.
Other Ferraris on offer include a three-owner 1982 512 BBi with 39,000km from new (estimate CHF235,000 – 275,000); a Ferrari Classiche-certified 365 GT 2+2 which has covered just 1000km since it was restored (estimate CHF300,000 – 350,000); and a three-owner 24,500-km 1992 Testarossa (estimate CHF95,000 – 105,000).
A 1971 BMW 2002 tii that remained with its first owner in Italy until it was imported into Switzerland in 2016 is listed at CHF60,000 – 70,000. The 73,000-km tii received new wheels, tyres and a brake overhaul prior to passing its Swiss veteran MOT in May 2017 and comes with bills for some CHF10,000.
Other highlights include a well documented 121,000-km 1982 Audi Quattro, in single-family ownership until July 2019 (estimate CHF65,000 – 75,000), and a one-owner 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II with 130,500km, a full service history and a spare boot lid with the Swiss-approved (smaller) rear wing (estimate CHF155,000 – 175,000); while a one-of-170 1991 Porsche 911 Cup, restored in 2006 following a competition career, carries a pre-sale estimate of CHF295,000 – 325,000.
A 1973 Lamborghini Urraco is one of the stars at Classicbid’s 7 December sale, taking place during the Retro Classics show at Nuremberg, with a guide of €79,000.
Also set to cross the block is a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 ‘Eleanor’ tribute, built by Classic Recreations, with a 6.4 litre V8 (estimate €160,000); a two-owner 1992 Alpine GTA Le Mans, one of 325 examples produced (estimate €49,500); and another rarely seen two-owner car from the ‘90s, a 1990 Volkswagen Golf Rallye Syncro G60, with an estimate of €27,500.
