The 14th running of RM Sotheby’s annual London sale will be an online-only event this year, with a brace of Porsches among the star attractions. A one-of-56 1974 911 Carrera RS 3.0, believed to be the only example optioned with an electric sliding roof, is guided at £800,000 – 1,000,000; while a 1955 356 Carrera 1500 GS Speedster which underwent a comprehensive restoration during its time with the renowned collector John McCaw is listed at £1,100,000 – 1,300,000.
Gerhard Berger’s F40 heads the roster of eleven Ferraris on offer, with a pre-sale estimate of £900,000 – 1,100,000. Converted to non-adjustable suspension by Ferrari Hamburg, two years before the former Ferrari F1 driver’s purchase in May 2019, it shows less than 30,000km and comes with Ferrari Classiche certification.
Elsewhere, one of the highlights includes a Fiat Abarth 131 Rally that was driven to victory by Walter Röhrl in the 1980 Rallye Sanremo, helping the German legend clinch that year’s drivers title (estimate £250,000 – 300,000).
The sale also features a JD Classics-restored 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Coupe that was retained by the factory as a development and press car (estimate £395,000 – 495,000). ‘6162 RW’ – the 10th production coupe to be built – took part in high-speed testing with Norman Dewis at the wheel and still retains many of the modifications that were trialled in period.
