Also the top deals of the last week bring three cars that have something in common. All of them are Italian cars from the middle of the 60’s and all of them were sold in Europe, one in Switzerland, one in Italy and one in Germany. But the cars are very different.
The fall in Ferrari prices continues with our top pick of the last week. One of only about 80 alloy examples of the gorgeous 275 GTB was sold only for 1.430.000 EUR including premium in the European online only sale by RM Sotheby’s on the 21st of July. Although the example had a correct, but restamped engine, the original engine was also located for the sale. And so the final for an alloy 275 GTB is a real bargain not seen for this model at least since 2012! (auction link)
Our second pick goes to the other end of the Italian production of the 60’s, to the Fiat 600. But this example from 1965 is a special one. It is a directly sold and modified car by Zagato. The modifications included a tuned engine by Stanguellini, a Nardi steering wheel, Borrani alloy wheels, special upholstery and a two-tone paint. For such a rare car in perfect condition is the final price of just 18.000 EUR an extraordinary price to value. (auction link)
The last pick goes directly between the small Fiat 600 inline four and the beast Ferrari 275 GTB V12. Maserati Mistral is powered by a straight six, a derivative from the championship winning F1 engine. The car was repainted from silver to red and has the original engine modified with triple Weber carburetors, but the original Lucas fuel injection is also added in the sale. The final price of 68.200 EUR including premium paid at RM Sotheby’s on the 22nd of July is a really good price for a rare car of which just 383 examples were built. (auction link)
