From the legendary pre-war 6C 1750, the combination of Zagato’s lightweight bodywork and Alfa Romeo’s sophisticated engines and superb chassis has led not only to competition successes but to the creation of some of the most stylish sports and GT cars to come from Italy as well.
Among the rarest of this exclusive club are the 16 Sprint Veloce Zagato coupes built between 1956 and 1959. All slightly different in detail execution; they are the ancestors of the Alfa Read More
This 1968 911S is a correct, matching-numbers car that has been given a complete restoration. This car was imported to the United States by Beverly Hills Porsche for a client in 1980.
In 2002, the same client commissioned Beverly Hills Porsche to restore the car, and it has been driven sparingly since.
The odometer currently reads just 23,700 miles, indicating the careful miles covered since importation. It is immaculately clean and painted in the period-correct red over black with Read More
To call Ferrari’s TRC for 1957 “one of the prettiest Ferraris built,” as pre-eminent Ferrari historian Richard F. Merritt put it, is surely an understatement. It is a design without fault — a timeless, downright breathtaking execution of Italian motoring passion, married to one of the greatest sports racing chassis of all time.
The Ferrari on offer stands in a class all its own. Coming from single ownership for the past 30-plus years, its presentation at auction may very well Read More

CSX2093 is one of only eight cars modified with the Shelby-developed Dragonsnake package.
Owned by Jim Costilow and piloted by drag racer Bruce Larson, later of USA-1 Funny Car fame, the Dragonsnake dominated the NHRA’s A/SP, AA/SP, B/SP and C/SP classes in 1964. It set records in the 1965 season and won the NHRA Springnationals, Winternationals and U.S. Indy Nationals that year.
With subsequent owner Ed Hedrick behind the wheel, CSX2093 went on to win the 1966 Springnationals and U.S. Read More
It’s a car. It’s a boat. Actually, it’s both. Developed in West Germany, the Amphicar was aimed squarely at America’s leisure market and debuted at the 1961 New York Auto Show. As the culmination of a 15-year, $25 million development program, the Amphicar was the creation of amphibious-vehicle pioneer Hans Trippel.
A mid-rear-mounted Triumph Herald 4-cylinder engine was mated to a German Hermes transmission, which directed power to the rear wheels on land and, once on Read More
Enzo Ferrari’s son Alfredo, also known as “Dino,” was a proponent of small-displacement, 6-cylinder technology. After earning his engineering degree, he began development of a V6 racing engine. After Alfredo’s tragic death, Enzo directed the legendary engineer Vittorio Jano to finish Dino’s work to honor his son’s memory. A series of successful engines was developed that ultimately powered various Ferrari Formula 1 and 2 cars, as well as sports racers.
Ferrari later built a prototype sports Read More
Of all Bugatti models, one of the most elegant, imposing and luxurious was the Type 46, introduced in late 1929. Approximately 450 examples were produced until 1933.
The steel ladder-type chassis of the Type 46 featured a long 138-inch wheelbase and was powered by an equally impressive, long-stroke 5.4-liter inline eight engine featuring a single overhead camshaft. Its impressive specifications included three valves per cylinder and twin spark plugs per cylinder, which delivered a stout 140 Read More
A solid original New Mexico car with a recent body-off restoration, this Triumph has the factory rear seat. Factory-quality patch panels were used where needed. Priority was placed on originality and drivability. The chrome has been replated, and the interior was completely re-covered with leather seat trim. The full engine rebuild was performed with 87 mm pistons, enlarging displacement to more than 2.1 liters. Internal engine parts have been balanced, and the transmission was rebuilt. Every major mechanical Read More
