A SENSATIONAL collection of 115 motors dating back to the 1920s worth over £17million will go under the hammer this month.
The multi-million pound selection features some of the rarest and most sought-after classics on the market.
Supercars from Bugatti, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Porsche are all included in the incredible sale.
The auction features a number of classics from an important single owner collection inspired by legendary films.
Top of the tree is the 1967 Lamborghini Miura SV – just like the one from The Italian Job.
The 1967 Lamborghini Miura SV was delivered new to Portugal in 1967 and converted by the factory to full SV specification in 1974.
The conversion is documented with period correspondence and invoices.
The Arancio orange Lamborghini was fully restored in 2008 and is expected to sell for £1.3million.
The sale also features a 1928 Bugatti T 44 Fiacre By Gangloff, a very rare survivor of only a handful remaining models.
It was once owned by the well-known collector and author of many Bugatti books, Uwe Hucke, in the mid-60s.
He kept Chassis No. 441141 until 1977 when he sold it to Helmut Schellenberg, the famous 1930’s Bugatti racing driver .
The 90-year-old ultra-rare Bugatti has a price tag of £485,000.
Racing fans can also get their hands on a pre-war model with Brooklands and Grand Prix history.
The 1936 Brooke E.R.A. Monoposto is being sold with the original 1936 Bedford WS race transporter and a comprehensive spares package – and there’s no reserve.
Several Porsches are also up for sale including a 2011 Porsche 997 GT3 4.0 (£380,000), a 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster (£176,000) and a 1955 Porsche 356 Pre A Speedster 1600 Super engine (£300,000).
The biggest Porsche gem is expected to be the £265,000 1952 Porsche 356 Pre-A 1500 Coupe.
This model was comprehensively restored and is one of the first one-piece “Bent” windscreen and synchronised transmission examples.
Mercedes is represented by a 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL ‘Gullwing’ Evocation by Anton ‘Tony’ Ostermeir (£280,000) and a 2013 Mercedes Benz SLS Roadster AMG (£176,000).
Other cars going under the hammer include a 1957 AC Ace Competition Car with period race history around the world, a 1978 Lamborghini Espada Series III (£132,000), a 1937 Cord 812 Supercharged Cabriolet (£176,000) and a recently restored left hand drive 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 (£265,000).
Ferrari are getting in on the act too with a 1967 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series II in rare Rosso Cordoba (£300,000) and a 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT (£265,000).
