Lot #4001 1963 Ferrari 250 GT/L 'Lusso'

The 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso or simply 'Lusso,' Italian for luxury, is one of just 350 of these achingly beautiful performers that were built in all during 1963 and 1964. Today, the Lusso remains a stylistic tour de force and, simply put, it stands tall as one of the finest all-around Grand Touring machines ever conceived. Winning the Ferrari Cup in 2011 and 2014 at the Carmel-by-the-Sea Concours and First in Class at Concorso Italiano in 2014, this amazing machine is a proven, platinum example. During September 2014, it was acquired by Adam Levine, the noted classic sports-car enthusiast, Maroon 5 front man, and panelist on NBC's hit TV show, The Voice. Given Mr. Levine's well-known love for actually driving his cars as they were originally intended, it was given a comprehensive service including attention to its braking, cooling, electrical, fuel, and ignition, systems, plus carburetor tuning and more. Attractively presented, this wonderful and rare Lusso is a truly exciting find as a striking, yet highly drivable example, offering a virtually unmatched opportunity for astute Ferrari collectors and enthusiasts alike.

Lot #4030 2005 Porsche Carrera GT

This staggeringly beautiful black on black example from the Carrera GTs 2005 production year, is believed to be one of the 604 original North American delivery Carrera GTs. A US-specification, emissions-compliant supercar, this Carrera GT is an investment-grade modern Porsche and an unqualified icon in its own time. Simply impressive throughout, this very highly equipped example demands serious consideration.

Lot #4031 1966 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2

This 1966 Ferrari 330 Series II 330GT 2+2 was one of only 455 examples built and is by far one of the most well-known and recognized surviving examples, having passed through the hands of several prominent owners including television and radio personality Adam Carolla. Additionally, this important 330 was featured in a variety of media including as a feature vehicle in Jay Leno's hit production, Jay Leno's Garage. Fully documented with the Ferrari 330GT 2+2 Registry, this is a completely 'Matching Numbers' example with full known history from new, fully documented mileage from new and is sold with all services completely current and up to date.

Lot #4111 1985 Lamborghini Countach 5000S

A stunning masterpiece of design and engineering, this 1985 Lamborghini Countach 5000S was refreshed in its original red color over original-appearing black leather seats. It was imported to the USA by Trans European Automobiles in October 1984. Still wearing original decals, ID tags and stickers, it is one of the last 5000S models produced. The throaty sound of its 6 Weber 2-barrel sidedraft carburetors - exclusive for the S model - provides an exhilarating symphony!

This amazing GT350 is one of only two Shelbys to earn the SAAC National Convention Division I Concours Premier Award (perfect authenticity score) and the MCA Grand National Thoroughbred Division Gold Award (twice), plus the MCA Authenticity Award. No other '65/66 Shelby has ever won both SAAC Premiere and MCA Thoroughbred Gold awards, let alone all three! This stunning automobile is truly the pinnacle example of a Shelby GT350.

    Lot #4084 1994 Porsche 911 3.6 Turbo

    In 1990, the 964-series Porsche 911 included the reintroduction of the legendary Turbo. Starting in 1992, the larger 3.6L Turbo became an instant legend with massive performance. This stunning example has been babied during its 26,962-mile lifetime and benefits from a fresh and complete engine and sunroof servicing by a Porsche specialist. An exterior restoration was performed in June 2015 with a high-level respray in its original Guards Red, and the car itself looks and drives incredibly well.

    Lot #4023 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet

    Striking in 'triple blue,' this V-8 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet is a very fine example of this rare (just 1,232 built) Mercedes-Benz landmark. Air conditioning, a period radio unit, beautiful veneered wood, and many other amenities provide a comfortable and luxurious experience. Owners' manuals, tools, a canvas tool roll, and other miscellaneous items further complete this excellent example. As offered, this glamorous and very rare 280SE Cabriolet carries guaranteed collectability and enduring value as one of the final limited-production, mostly hand-built Mercedes-Benz automobiles ever produced.

    Lot #4117 1990 Lamborghini LM002 'American'

    This 1990 Lamborghini LM002 American is one of only 48 LMAs produced. It has traveled only 16,600 miles and retains its original white on white with blue piping and accents, Lamborghini badging, rear spare, and updated air conditioning. It was recently serviced including new tires. The stainless performance exhaust system brings out the true sound of the V12 power plant. This truck runs and drives better than new, fresh out of a collection and now exclusively being offered at auction. One of the best future investment vehicles on the current market.

    Lot #4108 1953 Porsche 356 Pre A Bentwindow Coupe

    Extremely rare and sought-after, this 1953 Porsche 356 Reutter 1300 coupe is one of an estimated total Porsche production of 1,600 cars in 1953, with just 338 1300-model cars. Very few remain today making this rare Porsche one of the earliest examples in existence today. It was prepped for rally racing years ago by veteran Porsche racecar driver and builder Klaus Selbert, who went on to compete at top events. In the last year, additionally, it has received a top-level restoration maintaining its great racing heritage.

    Lot #4141 1967 Sunbeam Tiger MKII Convertible – NO RESERVE

    1967 Sunbeam Tiger Mark II, VIN # 382100341, underwent a complete nut and bolt restoration for then owner Bo Cheadle, by marque specialist Todd Bumgardner, who had also restored the Ken Miles-built Tiger prototype. Two decades of storage followed the restoration and it was purchased by the current owner after resurfacing during an estate sale, followed by a superb cosmetic and mechanical freshening by the respected Northwest restoration specialist, Don Walters.
