Four cars from Pierre Brignole’s collection are heading to Aguttes’ Autumn Sale on 9 November in Lyon, France. The 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GT has been in the collection for 30 years and carries an estimate of €250,000 – 360,000, while those wanting a similar soundtrack for less money might be tempted by the two-owner 1968 Fiat Dino 2.0 Coupe which was purchased by Brignole in 1985 (estimate €50,000 – 70,000).
Other Italian machinery on offer includes a 56,000-km 1994 Ferrari 456 GT at €45,000 – 55,000; a 27,000-km 1999 Ferrari 550 Maranello in the desirable combination of Tour de France Blue over beige hide (estimate €80,000 – 100,000); and a 28,200-km 2005 Lamborghini Murciélago LP 580 Roadster, one of the rare examples with a 6-speed manual gearbox, of which it’s believed less than 20 were produced (estimate €250,000 – 350,000).
A three-owner 1987 Peugeot 205 GTi 1.9 which has covered less than 6,800km from new is listed at €28,000 – 40,000. Used sparingly by its first owner, it passed to a distant cousin upon her death in 2009 and was acquired by the consignor in 2011 with 5,831km. It received a major timing belt service in May this year and comes complete with original invoice, manuals and duplicate keys.
Notable highlights also include a recently restored matching-numbers 1966 Porsche 911 2.0-litre (estimate €180,000 – 220,000); an exceptionally original 1949 Delahaye 135 M "Gascogne" by Dubos that was purchased by the car’s designer, Philippe Charbonneaux, in 1980 and displayed at his museum in Reims from 1985-2016 (estimate €80,000 – 120,000); and a 1959 Renault Frégate Décapotable Chapron – the only known survivor of three Chapron convertibles built with the ‘straight wing’ design (estimate €100,000 – 150,000).
The following day sees Osenat host a sale at Salon Époque'Auto in Lyon, where the 70-car catalogue is led by Ferraris; an 86,000-km 1975 Dino 246 GT at €250,000 – 300,000, and a two-owner 365 GT 2+2 that remained with its first custodian Phillippe Woog – the inventor of the electric toothbrush – at his property on the shores of Lake Geneva from 1968 until 2017 (estimate €230,000 – 280,000).
Competition cars set to go under the hammer include a three-owner 1971 Alpine A110 1600 S with known provenance (estimate €90,000 – 110,000), and a 1973 De Tomaso Pantera Gr. 3 which will require a new FIA historic passport to return to the track following a comprehensive restoration (estimate €120,000 – 150,000).
