RM Secures One-Of-A-Kind Ferrari and Talbot-Lago For its Monterey sale  RM Auctions, the world's largest collector car auction house for investment-quality automobiles, is delighted to announce two new headline attractions for its highly anticipated Monterey, California sale, August 17–18: a spectacular 1955 Ferrari 410 Sport Berlinetta and a flawless 1938 Talbot-Lago T23 Teardrop Coupe.

On display at the company's sale in Monaco this week (May 11–12), both automobiles represent the pinnacle of exclusivity and style. The extraordinarily rare 410 S, chassis 0594 CM, is the only example built with a closed body, while the stunning Talbot-Lago, chassis 93064, is the sole Jeancart-style Teardrop originally built upon a four-liter T23 chassis. Carefully handpicked from around the world by RM specialists, these latest multi-million-dollar consignments join a peerless group of 120 blue-chip automobiles slated for the sale, including the previously announced Pebble Beach 'Best of Show' winning 1938 Horch 853A Erdmann & Rossi Sport Cabriolet.

'Our Monterey sale has established a reputation over the years for offering automobiles of exceptional quality and provenance. This year's sale will again provide a wonderful celebration of automotive styling, honoring the world's top coachbuilders,' says Rob Myers, Chairman & Founder, RM Auctions. 'We are thrilled to be bringing the Ferrari 410 S Berlinetta and the Talbot-Lago T23 Teardrop Coupe to our Monterey auction stage. They are the epitome of great automotive design and, as such, a natural fit with the famous Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance weekend.'

Resplendent in ivory with a blue leather interior, the exceptional 1955 Ferrari 410 Sport Berlinetta, chassis 0594 CM, is considered by many as one of the world's most desirable road-going Ferraris. The second of just four coveted 410 S's built, this Berlinetta is truly unique with its one-of-a-kind Scaglietti body. 0594 CM was delivered new in the summer of 1955 to French industrialist and Ferrari financier, Michel Paul-Cavallier, who carefully maintained the car for the next nine years. Repainted red in the sixties, the one-off Berlinetta remained in French ownership through 2001, including 36 years of single ownership in Pierre Bardinon's 'Mas du Clos' Collection. In 2001, it was purchased by Dutch Ferrari collector, John Bosch, who returned the car to its original color combination before taking to the road in the famed Mille Miglia retrospective. The upcoming Monterey sale represents 0594 CM's first appearance in North America and its auction debut, an occasion that is expected to garner significant attention from the world's most elite collectors (Estimate available upon request).

'Over the years, RM Auctions has sold more important and historic Ferraris than any other auction house,' says Max Girardo, RM Specialist and Managing Director, RM Europe. 'We are truly honored to have been entrusted with the sale of this immensely valuable Ferrari and look forward to continuing our strong track record for Ferraris in Monterey. Very rarely seen in public, the offering of 0594 CM truly represents a once-in-a-lifetime ownership opportunity. We anticipate strong global interest in its sale.'

Equally stunning and particularly elegant, the 1938 Talbot-Lago T23 Teardrop Coupe, chassis 93064, is another wonderful example of a rolling work of art poised for RM's Monterey auction podium in August. One of only five Jeancart-style cars built, of which just four remain, this beautiful aerodynamic coupe was delivered new in February 1938 to a French resident before being shown at the 1938 Concours d'Elegance de l'Auto. Imported into the United States in the late-1940s, 93064 boasts a well-documented chain of ownership, including a brief stint in Japan in the late-1980s and more recently, in the UK. A former Pebble Beach 'Elegance in Motion' award-winner, it was the recipient of a recent, no-expense-spared, body-off frame restoration in France by marque experts, which saw it return to its stunning Lago Blue, the same color as when it was displayed at its first concours event. Today, striking in appearance and wonderful to drive—it has participated in multiple Colorado Grand events—it is an ideal candidate for touring or concours events (Est. $2,500,000–$3,200,000).

'Arguably one of the world's most stunning and chic automobiles, the 1938 Talbot-Lago T23 Teardrop Coupe is a masterpiece of French artistry and Art Deco design. Simply breathtaking, its proportions and gently sweeping curves are wonderfully representative of France's prewar design themes. Its upcoming sale offers a very exciting ownership opportunity for the successful bidder,' says Peter Wallman, RM Car Specialist.

A tradition spanning more than 25 years, RM's highly anticipated Monterey, California sale, held during the same weekend as the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, returns to the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center, August 17–18.
