Rare 911, prototype Bugatti and two A110s at Paris sale
An unusual Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet, prototype Bugatti EB110 and two Alpine A110s with competition history are latest additions to RM Sotheby's Rétromobile sale
A rare Porsche 911 993 Turbo Cabriolet is to be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s at its Paris sale, held on 7 February 2018. The sale is to be held following Festival Automobile International, to coincide with the popular Rétromobile show.
The car is one of just 14 produced by Porsche Exclusive to an unusual specification. Essentially, the drivetrain is that of the earlier 964 Turbo in that the car is rear-wheel drive – conventional 993 Coupé Turbos were four-wheel drive.
Chassis no 8509 is one of just nine to be produced in left-hand drive, and features a desirable G50 manual gearbox. The electrically-operated clutch was developed by RUF, and installed by Porsche Exclusive, as confirmed by its extensive history file. Having covered just 32,000km from new, its estimate of €625,000-725,000 reflects its rarity.
It is joined by a 1993 prototype of the Bugatti EB110SS, featuring some interesting factory modifications. The EB110SS was a development of the earlier EB110, featuring 604bhp and a mildly modified lighter shell. This car uses an experimental twin tank single filler system, plus a carbon fibre engine cover and a revised gear selector.
The car was retained by Bugatti until 1997, when it was delivered to its first owner. Just 33 Supersports were produced – only three of which were prototypes with the provenance of this vehicle. It is estimated that it will fetch €850,000-1,100,000 when sold.
A pair of Alpine A110s will also be offered via RM Sotheby’s. The first, an A110B 'Team Vialle Autogas' (above) was driven by Piet Kruythof in 1977 and 1978 in the European Rallycross Championship and has been restored as a racer.
The second, a 1600S, participated in the 1975 Targa Florio before being stored until 2000. It has since been restored. The A110B is estimated to sell at €140,000-180,000, the 1600S at €130,000-140,000.
A full list of available vehicles will be published on the RM Sotheby's website. Vehicles are still being consigned.
