Chassis 08641 comes with Ferrari Classiche certification following a recently completed restoration which returned the car to its original colour scheme of Azzuro over Nero.

RM Sotheby’s moves on to Liechtenstein four days later where a single-owner collection of 25 Rolls-Royces and Bentleys are set to go under the hammer. Star of the show is a one-off streamlined 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Special Brougham by Brewster with known provenance from new, estimated to fetch CHF1,300,000 – 1,750,000.
