Coys' London auction on May 18th is a multi-million pound offering of a broad selection of very high quality historic and collector motor cars, including Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Chassis No 1, the factory prototype and launch model at the 1966 Paris Motor Show. It is this actual car that is featured on the homologation papers produced by the factory.
Alongside this important Ferrari is a 250 GT Pininfarina Cabriolet and a 330 GTC. Still from Italy, but of a different vain, is the original Fiat Jolly by Ghia, which was originally delivered to the famous post-war President of Yugoslavia, General Tito, and a cast-iron provenance of having come from the Belgrade motor museum.
At the modern end of the spectrum, there is a stunning modern Porsche supercar in a 2011 GTS 4-litre, with less than 3,000km from new, alongside a McLaren Mercedes SLR with less than 2,000km from new.
