1967 Lamborghini could make €1,500,000

International auctioneers Coys are putting under the hammer 115 classic cars worth over €20 million at their Techno Classica Essen auction on the 24th of March in Essen, Germany.

Chris Routledge, CEO of Coys, said, ‘We are proud to return to Essen Techno Classica for another high quality auction. This is one of the world’s most important historic motor car events and as the leading international auction brand in Germany we have put together a multi-million euro offering featuring some of the most beautiful cars ever built.’

The auction features several classics from an important single owner collection inspired by legendary films, including an exceptional Lamborghini Miura SV like the one in The Italian Job, which could sale up to €1,500,000. The sale also features a 1928 Bugatti T 44 Fiacre by Gangloff, a very rare survivor of only a handful remaining models.

For the historic racing collector, Coys are offering at no reserve a 1936 Brooke E.R.A. Monoposto. This hugely famous pre-war racing car with Brooklands and Grand Prix history comes complete with the original 1936 Bedford WS race transporter and a comprehensive spares package.

German marques feature heavily in the catalogue with high quality entries such as a 2011 Porsche 997 GT3 4.0 (€370,000 – €430,000) and a 1955 Porsche 356 Pre A Speedster 1600 Super engine (€290,000 – €340,000).

One of the German gems on offer is a 1952 Porsche 356 Pre-A 1500 Coupe. This model was comprehensively restored and is one of the first one-piece “Bent” windscreen and synchronized transmission examples (€250,000 – €300,000).
