1915 Packard Twin Six 1-35 7-Passenger Touring

Upon the introduction of the Twin Six in 1915, Henry Joy, president of Packard Motor Car Co., proclaimed it to be “the greatest piece of machinery that ever went upon the highways.” Packard’s well-established engineering prowess surely appealed to this vehicle’s first owner, Andrew Kramer, who was an inventor and founder of the Columbian Steel Tank Company of Kansas City. In 1917, the Twin Six was damaged in a fall as it was being hoisted to the second floor of a paint and trim shop. Mr. Kramer had the Packard factory rebuild the car, which was completed using a second-series Twin Six engine. This stately automobile was soon pressed into service escorting VIPs around the Columbian Steel Tank Co. factory grounds, which it did for many years. In 1951, Kansas City was struck by the infamous Black Friday Flood. Water and mud inundated the factory grounds – including the Packard, as shown in photos in the car’s history file. The Twin Six was subsequently cleaned by the Kramer family, and then was sold, circa 1963, to Packard enthusiast and collector Bradley Skinner. Mr. Skinner later installed a correct first-series V-12 engine, which it retains today. No longer in running condition, this remarkable Packard will require refurbishment before use. This Twin Six is a rare unrestored survivor from one of the most celebrated marques in automotive history. classic carEn savoir plus

1987 Ferrari 328 GTS

The mid-engine 308/328 series defined a breakout decade for Ferrari and became a favorite among fans of the Modenese constructor. Offered as a berlinetta (GTB) or a targa-top spider (GTS), the 328 featured a transverse-mounted four-cam V-8 engine and five-speed transaxle that provided ample performance and a classic Ferrari driving experience. The Pininfarina-styled bodywork complemented the model’s dynamic character and has become synonymous with 1980s Italian design. The North American-specification 328 GTS offered here was completed in May 1987 and sold new through Bob Sharp Ferrari of Danbury, Connecticut, on July 11, 1987. Its excellent Rosso Corsa paintwork is in fine condition, and believed by the consignor to be original. The GTS is equipped with air-conditioning, power windows, and audio entertainment. Showing just 19,900 miles at the time of cataloguing, its preserved interior upholstery, undercarriage, and stowage compartments all remain tidy and presentable. The consignor undertook a belt service in January 2019, and fitted a new set of Pirelli P Zero tires. All electronics, lights, and safety equipment are reported to be in working order, including the clock and auxiliaries. Included with the sale are the original owner’s manual, tool roll, jack, and bulb/fuse container. A well-maintained example benefiting from sparing use, this pampered 328 GTS represents an opportunity to acquire one of the most-respected modern V-8 models from Maranello. classic carEn savoir plus

1974 BMW 2002 tii

Building upon the immediate success of its versatile Neue Klasse fourcylinder sedans, which returned BMW to profitability, the two-liter 2002 was derived from the 1602 and debuted for 1968. Delivering agile handling and delightful all-around performance, the 2002 model was offered in the all-important North American market through 1976. Model development swiftly progressed through faster 2002 ti and fuel-injected 2002 tii specifications, culminating in the FIA-homologated 2002 Turbo. Accompanied by an impressive document file containing service and parts receipts, correspondence, photographs, and prior owner history, this 1974 BMW 2002 tii is a very well-maintained example with known provenance dating to the early 1980s.

1993 Porsche 964 Carrera RS 3.8

PROVENANCE Shin Okamoto, Osaka, Japan (acquired new via Mizwa Motors Corporation in 1993) Jan Koum (acquired via Prescott Kelly) FEATURED MEDIA Porsche 964 Carrera RS 3.8, by Jürgen Barth, Norbert Franz, and Robert Weber THIS CAR In the early 1990s, Porsche executive Jürgen Barth proposed the company build an all-new 964-based racing car, one that would return the 911 to the highest levels of GT racing. Unveiled in 1993, the new Carrera RSR 3.8 was an instant success, capturing class wins at Le Mans, Sebring, and Daytona. The RSR also delivered outright victories in the 24-hour races at Spa-Francorchamps and Nürburgring. To homologate the 964 RSR, Porsche had to build a number of road-going models that shared the basic specifications of the race car. The result was the Carrera RS 3.8, which continued the tradition of the Rennsport models that came before. A further development of the Carrera Cup and Carrera RS, the RS 3.8 was engineered for maximum performance and hand built in Porsche’s racing department at Weissach-Flacht. Along with specialized Porsche Motorsport suspension and braking components, the Carrera RS 3.8 featured a strengthened, seam-welded tub, with lightweight glass and aluminum panels contributing to a curb weight of just 1,210 kg (2,667 pounds). The businesslike interior was equipped with lightweight bucket seats and a three-spoke, non-air bag steering wheel, while niceties such as power steering and air-conditioning were available upon request. Externally, the RS 3.8 retained much of the classic 911 form, even with the additions of wide fender flares and an exotic aerodynamic package that included a deeper front spoiler and an adjustable rear wing. Power came from a revised version of the 964’s air-cooled flat-six that had been bored by 2 mm (increasing displacement to 3.8 liters) and produced a reliable 300 bhp at 6,500 rpm. Wide Speedline wheels completed an appearance that was nearly as outrageous as the RSR racing car, but the RS was finished to the impeccable standards of a top-of-the-line Porsche road car. In total, Porsche built just 55 examples of the 964 Carrera RS 3.8. The car presented here, chassis 497078, was completed on December 14, 1993, and specified for delivery in Japan. After Germany, Japan was the most important market for these cars; all 12 examples delivered there were specified in left-hand drive and equipped with a smaller 77-liter fuel tank. This particular RS 3.8 is one of 12 examples painted Speed Yellow (code X4) and one of just two ordered with bucket seats painted black, trimmed in black leatherette with contrasting tri-tone gray panels. Special equipment included a 40/40 locking differential, H4 headlights, and reduced radio preparation. Notably, this RS was specified without an ECE regulations sticker or identification plate. As documented in the definitive book Porsche 964 Carrera RS 3.8, this car was sold new through Mizwa Motors of Tokyo and delivered to its first owner on September 7, 1993. The Porsche’s original purchaser was Shin Okamoto, a noted Japanese collector of important contemporary supercars, with a stable including a McLaren F1 and Ferrari F50 GT. The RS 3.8 remained in Japanese ownership until 2017, when marque specialist Prescott Kelly discovered it and brokered its sale to Jan Koum. Today, the RS 3.8 remains in magnificent condition, retaining its original paint finish and upholstery. Carefully maintained and detailed since joining The Jan Koum Collection, the car makes a strong impression in all respects, and at the time of cataloguing, the odometer displayed just over 15,420 km (approximately 9,580 miles). Consistent with its highquality presentation, this car is offered with a tool roll, roadside accessories, and owner’s handbooks. It is also accompanied by a file of documentation that includes a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, copy of the factory build record, and a German-language edition of Porsche 964 Carrera RS 3.8 bearing this car’s serial number (078). One of only 55 examples built by Porsche’s racing department, the 964 Carrera RS 3.8 is among the most collectible and sought-after of the legendary Rennsport models. Very rarely do these Porsches trade hands. The appearance of this exceptional Speed Yellow example at public auction is an opportunity not to be missed. classic carEn savoir plus

At the behest of importer Tony Pompeo, who perceived a market in the US for an 1100 cc sports car, Abarth would go on to produce approximately 10 of these radically styled racers, beginning with the example shown here. Utilizing highly tuned mechanicals from a Fiat 1100 and a unique sheet-steel platform chassis, Abarth contracted the newly incorporated Carrozzeria Boano of Turin to craft the aluminum coachwork. Using a striking asymmetrical design penned by Giovanni Michelotti, the spider departed from styling norms of the period with knife-edged aerodynamics and low-slung flanks. A visual sensation in its day, it remains one of the most beautiful designs ever applied to a sports racing car. Chassis 001 was first sold to famed automotive journalist John Bentley, who promptly entered the car in the 1955 12 Hours of Sebring with co-driver Jim McGee. Bentley later campaigned the 207/A at SCCA races at Thompson and Watkins Glen in 1955, and notably achieved a top speed record at Daytona Beach that same year. The Abarth’s second owner, Max Goldman Jr., raced 001 at events throughout the Midwest during the late 1950s, and it is believed that the car continued to race on the West Coast in the hands of subsequent owners. In 1986, the 207/A returned to the track, taking part in historic races with both George Simmons and later Courtney Whitlock. Jim Proffit restored the car for Mr. Whitlock before it attended numerous historic motor sports and concours events between 2004 and 2010. The next owner had Epifani Restorations of Berkeley, California, perform an exhaustive restoration of the mechanical systems including rebuilding the engine, transmission, brakes, and differential while applying a finished aesthetic in keeping with the car’s historical presence. The current owner, a noted East Coast collector with a passion for coachbuilt Italian sports cars, has since conducted a cosmetic restoration that has returned the beautiful Abarth to its original splendor. Since this work was carried out, the 207/A has been shown on rare occasions and has successfully completed the 2018 Colorado Grand, a 1,000-mile tour through the Rocky Mountains. Thoroughly prepared, historically significant, and undeniably beautiful, this first 207/A electrified the world of sports car racing when new, and now offers a rare opportunity as an exciting event entrant in prestigious races, tours, and concours worldwide. A magnificent testament to Carlo Abarth’s genius, and a brilliant example of 1950s Italian design, this marvelous automobile is a thoroughbred sports car sure to appeal to the connoisseur. classic carEn savoir plus

1955 Mercedes-Benz 220 Cabriolet A

In late 1953, the venerable Mercedes-Benz W187 Series of sedans and fourseat cabriolets received a new addition, the sporting and largely hand-built Cabriolet A. Constructed in limited numbers to satisfy the requests of celebrities and society’s elite, the Cabriolet A body was perfectly proportioned on its 112" wheelbase. Just a few hundred were built each year. The 220 Cabriolet A offered here reportedly was purchased new from Mercedes-Benz of Hollywood, California, and was used as a wedding gift to a young couple from the bride’s parents. Offered with a set of fitted luggage, the Cabriolet was built in the strikingly elegant color combination of white gray with a Dark Blue leather interior. As the freeways of Los Angeles grew ever busier in the 1960s, the 220 was parked for about two decades before being sold to a dentist in the San Diego area. After 22 years in his care, it passed to its third owner in 2008 and was recently acquired by the consignor in largely original condition, a testament to its life in temperate Southern California. With its interior remaining largely original, this desirable example displayed just under 80,000 miles at the time of cataloguing. Rare, coveted, and expensive when new, the Cabriolet A models from late in W187 Series production are prized by collectors today, and this black-plate California car stands ready to impress as a preservation-class show entry or faithful weekend driver. classic carEn savoir plus

1984 Audi Sport Quattro

PROVENANCE Robert Fergus, Ocala, Florida (acquired during the 1980s) Corwin Fergus, Bow, Washington (acquired from the above in 1998) Current Owner (acquired from the above in 2001) THIS CAR With the advent of the FIA’s Group B rally rules in 1982, Audi soon found its previously stalwart Quattro being outpaced by entries from Opel and Toyota. In response, in 1984, the company formulated a new race car which utilized a shorter wheelbase and an aluminum-alloy five-cylinder engine with dry sump lubrication, packaging it in a lightweight body made of fiberglass, aluminum, and carbon fiber-reinforced Kevlar. Still employing Audi’s famed all-wheel-drive platform, the new Quattro proved to be an instant champion as Stig Blomqvist won the 1984 Driver’s and Constructor’s World Rally Championship. Just 214 examples of the new model were built, 161 of which were finished as road versions to satisfy the FIA’s homologation requirements. These rare road cars, such as the example offered here, were never available for sale in the US, making American-owned examples quite rare. This beautifully maintained Sport Quattro was purchased out of Europe by Robert “Bob” Fergus of Columbus, Ohio. Mr. Fergus – a respected pilot and racing privateer who was one of the first and most influential VW-Porsche distributors in the Ohio/Kentucky region – amassed both planes and racing sports cars in Ohio and Florida over several decades, boasting a collection that included a Jaguar C-Type, a Ford GT40, a Ferrari Testa Rossa, and two Bugattis. But the Sport Quattro was clearly one of Mr. Fergus’ favorite cars, as he regularly showed it off during hot laps at a track near his Florida home. James K. Dobbs III admired the Audi there several times, and Mr. Fergus occasionally tried to sell him the car. The Quattro passed to Mr. Fergus’ son in 1998, and Mr. Dobbs acquired the car in July 2001. A substantial maintenance record shows that the Audi benefited from regular mechanical attention from that point forward, including major belt services in 2001 and 2007. In early 2002, the brakes were freshened with new pads and calipers, and the wheels were powder coated. Then, in 2007, the car was prepped for road rally use, and the air conditioner received a new compressor and lines. This Sport Quattro’s story was recounted in a full feature article in the June 2016 issue of Grassroots Motorsports, in which writer Tom Suddard exclaimed, “The acceleration was completely bonkers…Wheelspin was nonexistent…The reward? Truly ludicrous speeds…The Audi dances on its soft, rally-tuned suspension in the most pleasurable of ways. It feels alive, electric.…” Offered with service invoices, this well-maintained Sport Quattro benefits from minimal use by three known caretakers, and displayed 25,329 miles at the time of cataloguing. It is a perfect acquisition for any Group B enthusiast or marque collector, enjoyable as a display-worthy testament to Audi’s motor sports triumphs. classic carEn savoir plus

2004 Porsche 996 GT3 RS

The Type 996 GT3 was developed by Porsche in 1999 to homologate the 911 for the FIA GT3 category. In competition form, the GT3 enjoyed success with class wins at Le Mans, Sebring, and Daytona. For 2003, an even more track-focused RS variant was introduced. While using the same 380 hp flat-six as the standard GT3, the RS was made more agile via weight-saving measures including a polycarbonate rear window and a carbon fiber hood and rear wing, while ceramic composite brakes were made available. This 2004 Porsche 996 GT3 RS is one of 682 examples built. Never offered in the US, this car was delivered new in Japan, where it remained until early 2018, accruing less than 11,000 miles. Finished in Grand Prix White with red graphics and wheels, this RS is equipped with the Clubsport package, which is composed of a half-roll-cage, six-point harnesses for the fixed-back Recaro driver’s seat, a fire extinguisher, and a single-mass flywheel that enabled the engine to spin to redline more freely. Maintained in very original condition and accompanied by books, tools, documentation, and original exhaust components, this GT3 RS Clubsport was made EPA- and DOT-compliant by G&K Automotive in Southern California under current ownership. The GT3 RS is seldom offered for sale in the US, and many believe it produces a more raw and connected driving experience than later models. This example provides the rare chance to purchase one of the most visceral Porsches ever produced. classic carEn savoir plus

1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight

PROVENANCE Original Owner, Germany (acquired new in 1972) Thomas Reichel, Germany (acquired in the 1980s) Bob Jordan, Illinois (acquired circa 1991) David Mohlman, Florida (acquired by 2003) Current Owner (acquired in 2003) FEATURED MEDIA Carrera RS, 2nd Edition, 2015, by Dr. Thomas Gruber and Dr. Georg Konradsheim Porsche 911 R-RS-RSR, 4th Edition, 2016, by John Starkey THIS CAR Although Porsche had reached the pinnacle of international motor sports by sweeping the World Sportscar Championship for three years beginning in 1970, FIA rule changes after 1972 rendered the marque’s fearsome 917 sports prototypes obsolete. It was then that a new “works” competition program aimed at the Group 4 GT class commenced at Porsche, with the 2.4-liter 911 S developed into the Carrera RS 2.7. Named “Carrera” in a nod to Porsche’s past racing models and carrying the “RS” model suffix denoting rennsport, the German word for “racing sport,” the new 911 featured aggressive weight reductions, including thinner-gauge steel for the body, lightweight glass, and basic interior appointments. The 2.4-liter 911 S engine was enlarged into a 210 hp, 2.7-liter powerhouse with fuel injection, yet its conservative 8.5:1 compression ratio allowed use of lower-grade gasolines. Wider rear wheels and tires, as well as upgrades in both suspension and braking, further sharpened the reflexes of the new RS. Extensive wind-tunnel testing yielded the Carrera’s distinctive bürzel ducktail-style rear spoiler and revised front air dam, drastically increasing downforce at speed and creating the car’s enduring visual signature. n compliance with FIA homologation requirements, Porsche needed to offer 500 race-specification Carreras to the public. Fierce demand soon resulted in sales well beyond that number, with more than 50 orders reportedly taken on the first day of the Carrera’s launch at the influential October 1972 Paris salon. By the end of the 1973 model year, 1,580 examples had been built, of which only 200 came in the M471 Lightweight trim that was better suited to track use, while the vast majority were in the M472 Touring trim that offered more traditional interior appointments and was more tailored to road use. Acclaimed by the motoring press and buyers alike, the Carrera RS 2.7 became the basis for the many future racing successes of the 911, and the elemental M471 Lightweights have become particularly revered by today’s Porsche enthusiasts for their incomparable purity of purpose and performance. Factory-finished in Grand Prix White over Black Leatherette, this rare example is a desirable first-series M471 Lightweight, which was originally equipped with a limited-slip differential (M220), retractable radio antenna and loudspeakers (M440), and Dunlop tires. Delivered new in Germany in December 1972, this Porsche was serviced during the 1980s by a marque specialist garage, Roitmayer GmbH of Munich, where the car was updated with Carrera RSR-specification bodywork and RSR-type brakes, and the engine was enlarged to 2.9 liters. During the same decade, the M471 Lightweight was also reportedly acquired by Thomas Reichel of Germany. Subsequently, the Carrera was exported to the US, and by early 1991, Bob Jordan of Illinois had taken ownership, per an accompanying copy of a letter dated February 11, 1991, from Jürgen Barth – the former Le Mans-winning driver and staff member of the Customer Racing department of Porsche AG. The numbers in that letter – as well as on the car’s accompanying Porsche Certificate of Authenticity – correspond to both this chassis (9113600196) and this engine (6630219). According to a copy of the Bill of Sale on file, the consignor acquired the M471 Lightweight in May 2003 from noted Porsche collector and dealer David Mohlman. Shortly thereafter, he commissioned RennSport Racing of New Orleans to restore this example to its factory-correct livery and specification. During 2004 and 2005, the Porsche was disassembled down to the bare body shell, the front and rear fenders were returned to their factory-original Carrera RS “narrow” configuration, and the mechanical systems were rebuilt and restored. The potent flat-six engine was rebuilt to its factory-correct 2.7-liter displacement, the gearbox was rebuilt, and proper brakes were installed. Grand Prix White Glasurit paint was used to refinish the exterior of the car, accented by factory-specified Green “Carrera” lettering and matching wheels, which were expertly restored and correctly refinished by noted expert Harvey Weidman. Currently riding on period-correct Pirelli CN36 radial tires, the Carrera RS retains correct bucket seats, lightweight door panels, and Glaverbel lightweight glass. Extensive photographs document the restoration work performed by RennSport Racing and reflect the fanatical attention to detail applied to the Carrera’s systems and components. Only test and sorting miles have been covered since the restoration was completed, followed by fastidious, climate-controlled garage storage and care in the consignor’s collection of incredible Porsches. Not previously publicly exhibited, this exceedingly charismatic 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 M471 Lightweight offers the compelling opportunity to preserve, show, or enjoy this legendary performer. classic carEn savoir plus

1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso

PROVENANCE Bill Ziegenbein, Madison Heights, Michigan (acquired by 1989) Charles Zwolsman, Netherlands (acquired circa 1991) Fritz Kroymans, Hilversum, Netherlands (acquired in 2001) Tom Price, Larkspur, California (acquired from the above in 2010) Private Collection, Connecticut (acquired from the above) Current Owner (acquired from the above) EXHIBITION HIGHLIGHTS Amsterdam International Motor Show, 2009 FEATURED MEDIA The Berlinetta Lusso, by Kurt H. Miska Ferrari Serial Numbers Part I, by Hilary A. Raab Jr. THIS CAR An Italian gran turismo of inimitable style, the 250 GT Lusso combined the finest qualities of Pininfarina design and Ferrari performance in one exceptionally versatile package. As the last production 250 GT model, the Lusso was the culmination of a decade of steady chassis development and benefited from a rugged yet compliant suspension, four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes, and Ferrari’s brilliant three-liter V-12. Though the Lusso was designed for civilized road use, more adventurous owners demonstrated its motorsport heritage with successful outings at sports car races including the Targa Florio. The Lusso’s exquisite coachwork, designed by Battista “Pinin” Farina and constructed by Carrozzeria Scaglietti, has always received great acclaim. As Chuck Jordan of the General Motors Styling Department famously remarked, “Pininfarina’s Ferrari Berlinetta Lusso exhibits for all time that transformation of form and function into the spiritual presence by which great art transcends mere art.” In total, just 350 of these elegant Ferraris were built between 1963 and 1964. Their splendid design, outstanding driving experience, and association with some of the most glamorous personalities of the 1960s have contributed to their revered status among collectors and aficionados. Regarded as an automotive great from the outset, the Lusso has always been a desirable Ferrari. Marque historians have carefully traced the whereabouts of these cars over the past decades; the vast majority of examples are accounted for, generally residing in major collections or long-term ownership. The history of this car, chassis 5127 GT, can be traced to October 1963, when it was completed at the Ferrari factory. According to the research of Ferrari historian Marcel Massini, this Lusso, the 128th example built, was originally finished in the rare and attractive color scheme of Grigio Fumo (Smoke Gray, Italver 18944) with black Connolly leather upholstery. Upon completion, the new Lusso was delivered to M. Gastone Crepaldi S.a.s., the official Ferrari dealer in Milan, and it is believed that 5127 GT remained in Italy for several years before being exported to the US. While little is known of 5127 GT’s earliest provenance, by 1989, the Ferrari had been acquired by Bill Ziegenbein, proprietor of Prestige Motors in Madison Heights, Michigan. The following year, Coys of Kensington sold the Lusso at a London auction and, by 1991, it was being advertised for sale by a Los Angeles-based car dealer. In September 1993, 5127 GT was among a group of classic cars seized by Interpol and the Dutch government from broker Charles Zwolsman. These cars were eventually sold, by order of the Dutch government, at the Domeinen Auction, held in the Netherlands during July 2001. It was there that 5127 GT was purchased by noted Ferrari collector Fritz Kroymans. The Lusso remained in Mr. Kroymans’ ownership for the next decade, during which time it was displayed at the 2009 Amsterdam International Motor Show (AutoRAI). The Lusso once again returned to the US when it was sold to Tom Price of Larkspur, California, and it has since been kept in the care of two East Coast collectors. Today, the car presents in serviceable, driver-quality condition, featuring an older restoration in red paint with black leather upholstery. Significantly, the Ferrari retains its matching-numbers engine (5127) with its corresponding internal number (1644/62E), as well as its original riveted data tag. As presented, this Lusso would be an ideal car for a multitude of Ferrari Club of America gatherings, driving events, and tours. Given its attractive factory-supplied color scheme and Italian-delivery specification, it could also serve as an ideal foundation for a comprehensive show-quality restoration and would look sensational in its original Grigio Fumo. Whatever the future holds for 5127 GT, it will certainly remain among the most iconic and sought-after Ferraris of the 1960s and one of the all-time great European GT cars. For collectors who have always wanted to add a Ferrari 250 GT Lusso to their stable, the appearance of this car at auction represents an exciting opportunity that should not be overlooked. classic carEn savoir plus

1992 Porsche 964 Carrera RS

PROVENANCE Roberto Zorzi, Padova, Italy (acquired new in 1992) Private Collection, Hamburg, Germany (acquired from the above) Jan Koum (acquired from the above) THIS CAR With the introduction of the 964 model – a thoroughly updated version of the classic air-cooled 911 – Porsche decided to revive its famous Rennsport nameplate and produce an elemental, thoroughbred sports car in the spirit of the original 2.7-liter Carrera RS from 1973. Like its predecessor, the 964 Carrera RS was engineered for maximum performance. It was devoid of unnecessary amenities and benefited from a more-powerful engine, larger brakes, revised suspension, seam-welded chassis, lightweight Cup wheels, and bucket seats. In total, just 2,405 were built. According to factory records, this Carrera RS was completed on May 15, 1992, specified for Italian delivery and prepared in lightweight trim – without optional air-conditioning or power windows. Most notably, this RS was finished in Blossom Yellow (Bluetengelb), a sensational paint-to-sample color shared with the famous RUF CTR2 Yellowbird. Once completed, the Carrera RS was delivered to its first owner, Roberto Zorzi of Padova, Italy. An unusually meticulous owner, Mr. Zorzi drove the Porsche on rare occasions, maintained it in superb condition, and always stored the car in a special way – under a car cover with foam placed between the body and opening panels to facilitate air circulation. Similarly, the doors were not completely closed (so as not to compress the rubber gaskets) and paper tissues were placed in the intake and exhaust pipe to protect the engine from humidity. He even had two stickers made for the car, to remind passengers to close the doors carefully and avoid contact with the doorsills. The RS remained in Mr. Zorzi’s fanatical care for over two decades, during which time various parties approached him with offers to purchase the car. Among the car’s many suitors was a German Porsche specialist. After making approaches over a three-year period, he was finally able to reach a deal for the RS on behalf of a client. When Jan Koum was looking for an exceptional 964 RS in a special color, he learned of this unique Blossom Yellow example and purchased it from the second owner. The Porsche has been a fixture in Mr. Koum’s collection since and remains in outstanding condition throughout, showing less than 25,000 km (15,530 miles) at the time of cataloguing. Consistent with its well-preserved condition, the car is offered with its tool roll, roadside accessories, and leather folio containing the Italian-language owner’s manual, warranty book, rare RS supplement, and service directory. Also included is a history file containing Italian registration records, a copy of the factory build sheet, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and other relevant documentation. A pristine, low-mileage specimen with a documented three-owner provenance, this magnificent Blossom Yellow RS is an exceptionally rare and desirable Porsche. classic carEn savoir plus

1973 BMW 2002 tii

Introduced during the early 1960s, BMW’s Neue Klasse four-cylinder sedans returned the Bavarian company to profitability and spawned a fast-growing model line continuing through the mid-1970s. One of the most respected models, the two-liter 2002, debuted in 1968. Sporting, tractable, and able to meet US emissions mandates, the 2002 model was produced through 1976 and was available in progressively faster specifications – from the 2002 ti to the fuel-injected 2002 tii, culminating in the FIA-homologated 2002 Turbo. In 1973, the BMW 2002 still featured the handsome and earlierstyle round taillamps, a feature that is coveted by collectors today. This 1973 BMW 2002 tii is a very attractive example, equipped with desirable features and options including a five-speed manual gearbox, air-conditioning, Becker Europa AM/FM radio, and manually operated sunroof. Handsome in its blue over tan livery, this 2002 tii was beautifully restored in previous ownership and earned AACA national first-prize honors in 2011. The tii clearly benefits from the care of the current owner, who acquired the BMW in January 2015 from a fellow collector in North Carolina. The BMW is accompanied by service records issued by a BMW dealer documenting the work performed to the intake and cooling systems in 2015 and 2016. Wonderfully presented, this 2002 tii is simply a desirable example of one of BMW’s best. classic carEn savoir plus

2018 Porsche 991 GT2 RS Weissach

PROVENANCE Current Owner (acquired new in 2018) THIS CAR As the fastest and priciest vehicle in Porsche’s 991-generation model range, the GT2 RS for 2018 carried on a hallowed tradition as the lightest and best-performing Turbo model from Stuttgart. Powered by an upgraded, 700 hp engine derived from the 991 Turbo, the GT2 RS raised the ante with larger brakes, stiffer underpinnings, and reduced weight, courtesy of its rear-drive power delivery and lightweight interior. GT2 RS bodywork is a technological masterpiece, featuring such elements as a magnesium roof; carbon fiber for the front lid, fenders, and engine cover; polyurethane front and rear aprons; side and rear windows of polycarbonate; and titanium for the exhaust system. Weighing 3,241 pounds with fluids, this four-wheeled pugilist is also available with the optional Weissach Package, shedding 30 more pounds with magnesium wheels and lighter-weight underpinnings. Delivering stunning performance in concert with its seven-speed twin-clutch PDK gearbox, rear-axle steering, Porsche Active Suspension Management, and Porsche Stability Management, the GT2 RS also features Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, incorporating an electronically controlled, full-variable locking rear differential. According to Porsche, the GT2 RS is capable of reaching a top speed of 211 mph and can go from 0–60 mph in 2.7 seconds. Roadholding and braking are equally brilliant. Unveiled at the Microsoft Xbox 2017 E3 event celebrating the launch of Forza Motorsport 7, the new GT2 RS was both a cover car and featured vehicle for the popular video game series. It officially debuted at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed along with the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, and lap records followed. The most notable came at the Nürburgring Nordschleife – first in September 2017, and again on October 25, 2018, when Porsche test driver Lars Kern reclaimed the production car lap record from archrival Lamborghini. Offered from the private collection of the original owner, this stunning 991-series Porsche 911 GT2 RS was completed on April 20, 2018, and today shows less than 120 miles. Complete with the factory-issued books and manuals, plus commemorative document box, window sticker, and Porsche Production Specifications certificate, it features the $18,000 Weissach Package. Gorgeous in white with black accents over black leather/Alcantara upholstery including Platinum Grey stitching, this example is further equipped with an impressive array of 18 other factory options. Among them are the Front Axle Lift System, a larger fuel tank (23.7 gallons), and aluminum pedals and footrest. A limited run of just 1,000 examples of the GT2 RS is envisioned by Porsche, making this a singular opportunity to acquire an instant classic. classic carEn savoir plus

1983 Porsche 911 SC

Following the respected Carrera of the mid-1970s, relentless development by Porsche engineers yielded the 911 SC for 1978. Powered by an enlarged, three-liter flat-six engine fortified with 930 Turbo technologies, the 911 SC delivered outstanding performance and driveability with lowered emissions. Further updates culminated in the 1983 models. This exceptionally well-maintained and preserved Porsche 911 SC was purchased new by Dr. Foster Thomas of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on March 16, 1983. In addition to the car’s numerous standard features, options included Light Bronze Metallic paint, a sunroof, genuine leather interior, a Blaupunkt Monterey digital cassette radio, upgraded battery, limited-slip differential, forged alloy wheels with anti-theft device, as well as front and rear spoilers. The consignor, a prominent Midwest-based collector, purchased the Porsche in early 2015 and treated it to regular maintenance and service work. Today, the car remains in pristine, near-showroom condition in all respects. As offered, this outstanding 1983 Porsche 911 SC includes the window sticker, booklets in their factory pouch, service receipts from new, an extra key, a tool roll, an air compressor, a spare wheel and tire, roadside jack, and gloves. Showing less than 8,350 miles at the time of cataloguing, this time capsule 911 SC certainly is one of the finest available and should be an exciting find for discerning Porsche collectors. classic carEn savoir plus
