Artcurial returns to Monaco on 21 July for its first post-lockdown sale with a 90-car catalogue, 1/3 of which are offered without reserve. Star attraction is a one-of-100 2019 Pagani Huayra Roadster, estimated at €2,500,000 – 3,000,000. Delivered new to France, the 753bhp single-owner Roadster has covered just 50km and is one of three ordered by the consignor.
Other supercars set to cross the block include a three-owner 30,660-km 1990 Ferrari F40 guided at €900,000 – 1,000,000, and a brace of one-owner 2019 Ferrari 488 Pistas from a Swedish collection; a berlinetta finished in Blu America with 140km from new at €310,000 – 360,000 and a Verde ‘Green Jewel’ spider with 25km at €500,000 – 600,000.
The sale also features a 1971 De Tomaso Mangusta with a 420bhp 5.7 litre engine upgrade by Roush (estimate €250,000 – 350,000), while its predecessor, a recently-restored three-owner 1966 De Tomaso Vallelunga, carries an estimate of €275,000 – 350,000.
A UK-registered left-hand drive 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC from Nicolas Todt’s collection is catalogued at €600,000 – 800,000.

The eight-car Richoz Collection is among more than 80 lots due to go under the hammer at RM Sotheby’s European online auction, with bidding open on 14 July for one week. Jewel in the collection is a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB, one of 60 built with lightweight alloy coachwork, which is expected to fetch €1,700,000 – 1,900,000. Presented in Rosso Corsa, having been delivered new in Rosso Rubino, chassis 08193 shows 47,506km and comes with its original interior, factory-fitted electric windows, tool roll and manuals.

Elsewhere, a three-owner 41,836-km 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo with a factory Group B kit is guided at €140,000 – 180,000.
