#1 Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster ever built offered at Bonhams Festival of Speed sale

9174285-1-13Quando Mercedes-Benz presentò la sua prima CLK GTR Roadster nel 1998 costava all’epoca 1,5 milioni dollari, il che la rendeva l’auto di produzione più costosa mai realizzata, una cifra superata solo nel 2005 dalla Ferrari FXX.

9174285-1-7

La Bonhams Festival of Speed ​​Sale vedrà in offerta il primo esemplare mai costruito di Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster, stimato in £ 1,400,000-1,800,000.

James Knight, Motoring Director di Bonhams: “La vettura è stata proprietà di Mercedes-Benz fino al 2014, quando fu acquistata dall’attuale proprietario. Si, è effettivamente una  auto nuova con soli otto chilometri, ed è l’unica dei sei roadster essere rifinita in nero. Raramente si vede una vettura con queste credenziali sul mercato”.

Bonhams Festival of Speed Sale takes place on 26 June in Goodwood, Chichester. For more information visit https://www.bonhams.com/departments/MOT-CAR/.


When Mercedes-Benz first unveiled its CLK GTR Roadster in 1998 it sold for an astonishing $1.5 million dollars, making it the most expensive production car ever, a figure only recently exceeded by the Ferrari FXX.

Bonhams Festival of Speed sale will offer the very first example of the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster ever built, estimated at £1,400,000-1,800,000.

James Knight, Bonhams Group Motoring Director, said: “The car was retained by the Mercedes-Benz company until 2014 when it was acquired by the current owner. It is effectively a new car with just eight kilometres on the odometer, and it is the only one of the six roadsters to be finished in black. We rarely see a car with these credentials come to market.”

An open topped variant of the already super-exclusive CLK GTR Coupe – only 25 road going cars were ever produced – the Roadster was made in a very limited edition indeed. The company had the simple but effective idea of removing the roof and installing two roll-over bars and additional strengthening, plus the Roadster engine boasted an engine increased to 640bhp (40 horsepower more than the Coupé) and a Formula 1-style, sequential six-speed transmission controlled by paddles on the steering wheel.

At the end of the 1996 racing season, Mercedes-Benz switched from racing touring cars to sports cars, a decision that left precious little time to develop a challenger for the FIA’s (International Automobile Federation) new GT Championship. The latter’s regulations stipulated that ‘GT1’ category cars had to be production based, so development was entrusted to Mercedes-Benz’s official performance division, AMG. Amazingly, just 128 days after design work had commenced in December 1996, the first Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR took to the track at Jarama in April 1997 for its initial test.

The CLK GTR first won at the challenging Nürburgring in June 1997, going on to win five more of the 11 rounds to take the GT Championship in its debut year. With a new CLK LM (Le Mans) waiting in the wings, the CLK GTR raced just twice in 1998, before being retired from active duty after little more than a season’s racing, but with an impeccable record.

During 1998 and 1999, Mercedes-Benz duly completed 25 road going CLK GTRs. These closely resembled the racing version but had ‘only’ 550bhp and dispensed with the racer’s separate rear wing in favour of a body-integral design. They were also better equipped and kitted out with more creature comforts than the racer. With a headline-grabbing price tag of over $1,000,000, the CLK GTR’s exclusivity was surpassed only by its incredible performance.

A Porsche 959 Coupè for sale at Bonhams Spa Classic Sale on 24 may

9143205-2-21

La Bonhams Spa Classic Sale presenterà più di 40 fantastiche automobili e 14 lotti di automobilia accuratamente selezionati. L’evento si svolge il prossimo 24 maggio presso il famoso circuito di Spa Francorchamps, in Belgio.

La Porsche 959 vanta una velocità massima di 195 mph (314 km/h), il che al rendeva la più veloce vettura di serie al mondo negli anni ‘80. Alla Bonhams Spa Classic uno splendida Porsche 959 Coupé del 1988, stimata € 700,000-900,000.

Philip Kantor, Bonhams responsabile europeo del reparto Motoring: “La vettura in questione è rimasta sempre al proprietario originale e quest’anno la 959 festeggia il suo 30° anniversario. Sembra proprio che sia il momento giusto per acquistare una macchina fantastica. Con otto Porsche in vendita alla prossima Spa Classic Sale, si prepara un evento davvero appetitoso per ogni collezionista”.

Concepita nei primi anni ‘80 come una quattro ruote motrici per concorrere al Gruppo B, fu presentata come concept car al Salone di Francoforte del 1983, e nonostante la successiva non partecipazione agli eventi per i quali era stata destinata, entrò in produzione limitata nel 1987.

La macchina era più veloce di qualsiasi altra concorrente ma tuttavia, come nella tradizione Porsche, era comoda, pratica e affidabile. In effetti, con i suoi vetri e specchietti elettrici, climatizzatore, sedili riscaldati e il superbo impianto stereo, la 959 rivaleggiava anche tra le berline di lusso.

Nel 1986 René Metge e Dominique Lemoyne vinsero la massacrante Parigi-Dakar con la loro 959 Rothmans e anche la versione da pista arrivò settima a Le Mans di quell’anno, vincendo la classe GT2 IMSA.

Splendide prestazioni per una vettura prodotta solamente in meno di 300 esemplari.

Ecco una carrellata di alcune delle vetture in asta.

Bonhams annual Spa Classic Sale will showcase more than 40 fantastic motor cars and 14 lots of carefully selected automobilia. The sale takes place 24 May at the famous Circuit at Spa Francorchamps, Belgium.

Upon introduction, the Porsche 959 boasted a top speed of 195 mph (314 km/h), making it the world’s fastest street-legal production car. Bonhams Spa Classic sale features an excellent example of this iconic model, a 1988 Porsche 959 Coupé, estimated at €700,000-900,000.

Philip Kantor, Bonhams European Head of Motoring, said: “This is an extremely original example, having remained with its first registered owner from new. This 1980s supercar is the rarest and most revolutionary Porsche, and this year it celebrates its 30th anniversary so it’s the perfect time to acquire such a fantastic car. With eight exciting Porsche offered at the upcoming Spa Classic Sale, it’s a wonderful event for any collector.”

The 959 represented the ultimate in automobile design, successfully adapting state-of-the art racing technology for road use, and even today its specification remains unmatched.

Conceived in the early 1980s as a four-wheel-drive Group B competitor, it was first displayed in ‘concept car’ form at the 1983 Frankfurt Motor Show, and despite the subsequent abandonment of the events for which it had been intended, it entered limited production in 1987.

The car was faster than just about anything else on the road, and yet, in the Porsche tradition, was comfortable, practical and reliable. Indeed, with its electric windows and mirrors, climate control, electric heated seats and superb stereo system, the 959 rivalled many a limousine for luxury.

Although its Group B raison d-être had ceased to exist, the Porsche 959 did achieve one major competition victory. In 1986 René Metge and Dominique Lemoyne won the gruelling Paris-Dakar Rally in their works 959 with similar cars in second and seventh places. The race-developed variant finished seventh at Le Mans that year, winning the IMSA GT2 class. In total, fewer than 300 of these exclusive supercars were made.

This year’s sale attracted a larger and more cosmopolitan than ever before, achieving an excellent result.

“The market demonstrated that there is a ready appetite for exceptional examples, even for models that had previously been regarded as not particularly fashionable. The result we achieved for a Virage Coupe illustrated this with £74,300 realised for the stunning 1990 model.

A 1969 McLaren M6GT Coupé at Bonhams Spa Classic Sale on 24 May

Schermata 2015-05-07 alle 10.11.10

La battaglia tra Ford e Ferrari durante gli anni ’60 a vincere la 24 ore di Le Mans ha richiesto non solo grandi progressi innovativi, ma anche il contributo di alcuni tra i piloti più forti dell’epoca, tra questi c’era Bruce McLaren.

La sua esperienza di guida sulla Ford GT40 aveva convinto il neozelandese pilota e ingegnere del potenziale di una macchina così, una vettura che poteva essere omologata per il gruppo 4 destinato alle gare di resistenza come le 24 ore. Era giunto così all’idea di base della M6. Il risultato fu la coupé McLaren M6GT.

Un progetto che Bruce vedeva destinato anche all’uso su strada, ma un tragico destino lo aspettava dietro una curva sul circuito di Goodwood in Inghilterra, strappandolo troppo presto al mondo delle corse. Il suo nome però giungerà fino a noi glorificato dai molteplici successi che la sua scuderia raccoglierà dalla sua fondazione (1963) a oggi: 8 mondiali costruttori e 12 mondali piloti.

Purtroppo anche dopo la sua morte il progetto M6GT non fu portato a termine poiché i nuovi criteri di omologazione del gruppo 4 avrebbero costretto la neonata McLaren a competere con le Porsche 917 lasciando alla vettura inglese poche speranze di vittoria.

Questa M6GT, restaurata nel 1996, è stata recentemente in mostra negli showroom di McLaren a Newport Beach in California. La vettura è spinta da un 5.0 litri V8 Chevrolet, aspirato con un gruppo carburatori Weber 45IDA e un cambio Hewland LG600. La stima è €190,000 – 230,000.

Della M6GT furono realizzati solo due esemplari originali, quello personale di Bruce McLaren (targato “OBH 500H” ed esposto per lungo tempo presso l’Auckland Transport Museum) e un altro realizzato dalla Trojan per il pilota David Prophet, che lo portò in gara in più occasioni nel 1969.

The Ford Motor Company’s 1960s campaign to challenge Ferrari and win the Le Mans 24-Hour Race required not just innovative engineers but also the assistance of some of the world’s finest drivers, among them experienced F1 star Bruce McLaren. At around the same time New Zealander McLaren was establishing his own team in England and developing the first of the cars that would bear his name, the McLaren M1 sports-racer, developments of which, in the form of the mighty M6 and M8, would later dominate the legendary Can-Am series. 

His experience of driving the Ford GT40 had convinced McLaren of the street potential of such a car, which could also be homologated for Group 4 sports car racing. What’s more, he had the ideal basis for such a project in the form of his simple yet highly effective Can-Am sports-racer, the M6. The result was the McLaren M6GT coupé. Only three cars were built, two being converted from M6 Can-Am cars and the other being built from the ground up as a closed coupé by McLaren’s partner Trojan, who were responsible for manufacturing the customer M6B cars. That car was shipped to the USA for the New York Auto Show and subsequently sold to Ted Peterson who used it as Bruce intended, on the road. Bruce too used one on the road but, sadly, there would be no more M6GTs, the project being abandoned after his tragic death in 1970.

Its accompanying FIA papers (issued November 1997) state that the example offered here was first owned by McLaren Cars followed by well-known racing driver David Prophet, who had previously raced a McLaren-Elva. Campaigned at various European circuits throughout the 1969 season, Prophet’s appears to be the only McLaren M6GT with any competition history, racing at Magny-Cours, Dijon, the Norisring, Hockenheim, Crystal Palace and Wunstorf, its only win coming at Crystal Palace in August. Two further owners are listed on the FIA papers: Nigel Allbon (1987) and John Starkey of La Jolla, California (1994).

Restored in 1996 while owned by John Starkey, the M6GT has recently been on display in the showrooms of McLaren Newport Beach in California. The car is powered by a 5.0-litre Chevrolet V8, aspirated via a quartet of Weber 45IDA carburettors and driving via a Hewland LG600 gearbox. Described by the vendor as in generally good condition, this ultra-rare sports-racing GT car is offered with the aforementioned FIA papers and a bill of sale.

A brand new black tie evening sale at Chantilly Arts & Elegance, by Bonhams Motoring

4

Bonhams Motoring annuncia la partecipazione alla seconda edizione della Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille che si terrà a Chantilly, in Francia, il 5 settembre 2015.

Ospitata nel parco del castello di Chantilly, la manifestazione Arts & Elegance ha debuttato nel 2014, attirando circa 10.000 spettatori. L’evento è anche il teatro di mostre d’arte, sfilate di moda, musica dal vivo e life style, tutto nella cornice del castello di Chantilly.

Chantilly ha una storia legata alle attività equestri, è la sede del celebre ippodromo e del Museo del Cavallo, vanta inoltre la più importante attività legata all’addestramento di cavalli da corsa in Francia. Nel 2005 la tenuta di Château de Chantilly, tra cui il famoso ippodromo di Chantilly, ha ricevuto una generosa donazione da parte dell’Aga Khan per essere ripristinata alla magnifica condizione in cui si trova oggi.

Questo nuovo evento Bonhams Motoring si integra perfettamente con il calendario delle aste di automobilismo ed offre una opportunità in più per la clientela europea. Il concetto alla base è quello di offrire un’asta poco dispersiva, con un numero limitato di esemplari ma molto ricercati, una trentina di lotti selezionati e adatti ad un serata in abito scuro. Un evento particolare, molto selezionato e Bonhams assieme al suo partner Peter Auto vuole farne parte.

18

Patrick Peter, responsabile di Peter Auto, ha dichiarato: “Bonhams è famosa nel mondo per le sue aste, in particolare quelle caratterizzate da auto da collezione, quindi siamo lieti che questa rinomata azienda sia nostro partner per il nostro evento Chantilly Arts & Elégance Richard Mille oltre alla sua presenza alla Spa Classic”.

Fondata nel 1982, Peter Auto ha guadagnato una reputazione internazionale, sia nel campo delle auto storiche che moderne, quale organizzatore di alcuni dei più rinomati eventi motoristici al mondo.

L’ingresso all’asta Bonhams Chantilly Salae è legato all’acquisto del catalogo.

•Bonhams record breaking motoring department announce the Chantilly Sale, a debut auction at the second edition of Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille

•The brand new auction will be Bonhams second dedicated motoring sale for France, taking place at the countries top Concours event

•The sale will take place on Saturday 5 September 2015

 

Bonhams international auctioneers will conduct a brand new black tie evening sale at Chantilly Arts & Elegance, taking place in Chantilly, France, on 5 September 2015.

 

Hosted in the grounds of Château de Chantilly, the Arts & Elegance event debuted in 2014, attracting a crowd of around 10,000 spectators, taking in the delights of the “Concourse d’Elegance” competition for modern concept cars, and a superb “Concourse d’Etat” for classic cars from around the world. The “Art & Elegance” event also plays host to fine art exhibitions, fashion shows, live music and various lifestyle exhibits, all on the grounds of the magnificent château.

 

In addition to the Concours d’Elegance, the original kind of horsepower is in celebration at the event, with equestrian activities in abundance. Chantilly has a notable history with the equine community, home to Chantilly Racecourse and the Living Museum of the Horse, in addition to boasting the largest racehorse-training community in France. In 2005 the Château de Chantilly estate, including the famous Chantilly Racecourse, received a generous donation by the Aga Khan to restore the estate to the glorious location it is today.

 

 

 

 

 

“We’re delighted to announce this brand new and exclusive motoring sale, taking place on the luxurious grounds of the Château de Chantilly. The event perfectly complements the motoring auction calendar, and will offer an additional sale for our European clientele,” said Philip Kantor, Bonhams European Head of Motorcars.

 

“The concept is to offer a bespoke ‘Salon’ style auction, offering a limited number of very fine examples of collectors’ motor cars, perhaps thirty or so carefully selected lots for the ‘black tie’ evening auction. Our partner, Peter Auto, has embarked on an innovative approach with Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille, creating a new style of Concours – and Bonhams is delighted to be part of it.”

Patrick Peter, Head of Peter Auto, said: “Bonhams is famous the world over for its auctions, in particular those featuring collectors cars, so we’re delighted that this renowned company will associate itself with our Chantilly Arts & Elégance Richard Mille event in addition to its presence at Spa Classic. The organisation of such a sale in September in Chantilly confirms the momentum generated by the event only a year after it was held for the first time.”

Founded in 1982, Peter Auto has earned an international reputation both in the field of historical and modern cars, as organisers of some of the most renowned motor racing events in the world.
