A 2020 Porsche 935 heads the line-up at RM Sotheby’s timed online European sale, with bidding open from 3 June for a week. One of only 77 examples built, this 700hp track-only 935 is finished in Agate Grey under its Martini wrap and has remained unused in storage with its Monaco-based owner from new (estimate €1,275,000 – 1,375,000).
The sale also features the re-scheduled Petitjean Collection which was due to have crossed the block at RM’s Techno-Classica auction in March. Highlights among nearly 100 cars, all offered without reserve, include a 1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS, owned by Petitjean for 27 years (estimate €700,000 – 900,000); a 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400, the first to be delivered to Paris together with chassis 3108 (estimate €700,000 – 800,000); and a 1981 Aston Martin V8 Volante showing 17,621 miles (estimate €150,000 – 180,000).
Elsewhere, an ex-Gunnar Nilsson/Ronnie Peterson 1974 BMW 3.0 CSL carries a pre-sale estimate of €170,000 – 195,000. Starting life as a 3.0 CSi, it was believed to have been converted to 3.2 CSL turbo Group 5 spec and entered in the 1976 Silverstone 6 Hours for the Swedish duo – qualifying second but retiring with gearbox issues. After a final outing in ’76 at Dijon the car was stored for many years without its engine, before being restored in 2005 to its present-day 3.5 CSL Group 2 configuration.
Other notable entries include a 1939 Bugatti Type 57 Cabriolet with unique coachwork which was exhibited at the 1939 Geneva Salon (estimate €750,000 – 850,000); a 1948 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Super Sport Cabriolet, restored in 2013 (estimate €450,000 – 500,000); and a 1981 Lancia Rally 037 Stradale with less than 20,000km on the clock which has been the subject of a recently completed mechanical refurbishment (estimate €420,000 – 520,000).
