Bonhams returns to Knokke-Heist for its now-traditional Zoute sale with Ferraris locking out the top three entries. Heading the trio is a 1965 275 GTB Long-Nose – one of only 60 alloy-bodied examples built – which was the subject of a meticulous restoration at renowned marque specialists GTO Engineering in 2014.
A 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II originally owned by the gentleman racing driver Jean Blaton 'Beurlys' is catalogued at €1,200,000 – 1,600,000, and a one-owner 26,707-km 2004 Ferrari Enzo registered in Andorra carries an estimate of €1,300,000 – 1,600,000.
A well documented 1964 Shelby Cobra 289, presented in its original Bright Blue colour scheme, which has resided with the current owner since 1998 is listed at €800,000 – 1,100,000, while a recently restored 1958 AC Ace-Bristol, another US-market model, in single-ownership for the majority of its life is €250,000 – 300,000.
A 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale which was first registered in ‘77 is set to cross the block with a guide of €350,000 – 450,000. The car is one of 400 examples built to satisfy the homologation requirements that turned the Stratos into a rallying legend, securing the World Rally Championship of Makes for Lancia in 1975 and 1976.
Other notable lots include a 1968 Citroën DS 21 Décapotable by Chapron with only two family owners from new (estimate €190,000 – 220,000); a three-owner 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster which has covered some 7,000km since it was treated to a €250,000 restoration (estimate €950,000 – 1,150,000); and a one-of-37 1989 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato Volante with 2,540km on the clock (estimate €320,000 – 380,000).
