From a ’64 Porsche 904 to ’79 Lamborghini Countach: Nearly 100 Classic Sports Cars From the Petitjean Collection Are Heading to Auction
The rare vehicles, once owned by privateer racer Marcel Petitjean, will be offered at an RM Sotheby’s online-only event.
Starting May 21, the nine-day sale will include two cars from Maranello that could fetch more than $2 million each.
The expansive sale, which also includes 30 motorcycles, is now set to take place in October.
Bidding on the lots, comprising more than 75 pieces of rare motorsport art, ends on April 27.
In light of the pandemic, rare and classic automobiles are increasingly crossing the block by way of digital platforms.
The bright red car took first place at the Hockenheimring Grand Prix circuit in 1975.
This example is the only version of the car to feature a a 4.26-liter Ford V8.
Just 194 examples of the street-legal GT2 were produced.
