The star attraction at Artcurial’s Paris sale on 17 June is a 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB, offered from Jean-Pierre Slavic’s collection (estimate €1,900,000 – 2,300,000). Chassis 7555 was acquired by Slavic in 2013, at which point a meticulous restoration was undertaken by Autofficina Carlo Bonini with Ferrari Classiche certification following thereafter.
Other notable Ferraris include a 1991 F40 with a scant 6,823-km from new (estimate €1,100,000 – 1,300,000); and a Dino 246 GTS, which remained in the same family until 2016, is presented in a preserved state having covered an equally remarkable 13,600 miles since its first owner, John A. Kenny, collected it from Hollywood Sports Cars in 1972 (estimate €280,000 – 320,000).
The sale features nine Porsches from the Eric Coicaud Collection, headed by a 1997 911 GT, one of only 172 road versions produced (estimate €900,000 – 1,100,000); a two-owner one-of-55 1993 911 RS 3.8 with 61,131-km (estimate €700,000 – 1,000,000); and a 12,000-km 2006 Carrera GT at €550,000 – 750,000.
Significant entries also include a 68,000-km 1975 Lancia Stratos HF (estimate €450,000 – 500,000); a 1933 Bugatti Type 49 Cabriolet with a well-documented history from new (estimate €300,000 – 400,000); and a 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL which has been recently recommissioned following a prolonged period of storage is listed at €100,000 – 150,000.
A brace of Bugattis will go under the hammer at Osenat’s 15 June sale taking place in Fontainebleau. A Type 35B that was rebuilt from 1976 using a number of original parts carries a guide of €400,000 – 600,000, while a 1937 Type 57 with unique coachwork by Graber is catalogued at €350,000 – 450,000.
Sharing the spotlight will be a 1982 Chevrolet Camaro IMSA GTO at €400,000 – 600,000. The Camaro finished 2nd in class and 17th overall at the 1982 Le Mans 24 Hours in the hands of team owner Billy Hagan, sharing with Gene Felton and Tom Williams, and went on to chalk up numerous class-wins in the US, including the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1984.
A 1979 Porsche 911 SC Gr. IV heads the line up at Aguttes’ Paris sale on 23 June (estimate €170,000 – 250,000). The 911 was delivered new to the French singer Johnny Hallyday and dispatched to the legendary Alméras brothers where it received an engine upgrade to 3.5 litres, Gotti wheels and 934 spoilers. The consignor, who has owned the Porsche since 1990, has undertaken further mods and the car is now in Group 4 spec with an accompanying FFSA passport.
The 47-lot catalogue also includes a 1960 Facel Vega Excellence, one of just 145 Series I examples built (estimate €110,000 – 160,000); a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Gr. 4/5 which was campaigned in period at Monza and Spa prior to winning the Dutch national championship in 1976 (estimate €120,000 – 150,000); and a 1982 De Tomaso Pantera GT5 which has been owned by a French collector for the past 10 years (estimate €110,000 – 130,000).
Highlights at Bonhams’ Chantilly sale on 30 June include a 1959 BMW 507 at €1,800,000 – 2,200,000; a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 that started its life in the US before being imported into Germany in the early 1970s, where it has since remained (estimate €850,000 – 950,000); and a 1936 Peugeot 402 Eclipse restoration-project, believed to be one of only three two-seater examples with an electric metal roof known to survive (estimate €100,000 – 150,000).
