1960 SCARAB F1 LEGACY
The success of the Scarab’s small American teams taking on the best of European constructors with their own well-crafted models was a sight to see in its day. This particular Scarab was a tribute to the imagination and determination of Lance Reventlow and his talented Venice, California team. Its intricate desmodromic valve dual overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine may be the highest development of an American racing tradition. Even the great Stirling Moss couldn’t resist Reventlow’s invitation to drive his rival’s Scarab when they raced at Monaco. After Chuck Daigh’s serious crash, the remains of GP-2 were shipped to southern California. The engine that powered the Scarab in its first 1960 season was acquired along with various blueprints and documents. With that, the team concluded that they had now gathered all the parts of the racer that survived. As a matter of fact, later work was actually done with guidance from Chuck Daigh himself. Numerous written records document the restoration.
Scarabs have become more sought after than ever. The remaining two cars are safeguarded in the most coveted of racing collections! Make yours the third by bidding for the 1960 Scarab on September 29th, 2021.
1964 FERRARI 275 GTB
Prestigious consignor, The Nobles’ Family Auto Museum, decided to add another premiere piece from their immaculate collection. A brilliant, red Ferrari 275 GTB, which was the first Ferrari equipped with an independent rear suspension with rear-mounted transaxles. Under the hood you’ll find a Colombo motor with 6 carburetors in it. With a newer 275 engine that has seen less than 500 miles, this Ferrari will be as fun to drive as it is to look at. Rare, highly sought after, and dripping with Ferrari flare and iconic 60’s style, this beauty will be up for auction amongst other exotic and Formula 1 racing cars. Dr. Nobles said of his recent consignment,
“They only built approximately 250 short-nosed versions of this Ferrari. This car has been kept in a climate controlled environment, a museum in Italy to be precise. Though the engine is new, the transmission and other features are all original. It’s considered the prettiest model from the company and is a stellar example of the period of Ferrari.”
And stellar it is indeed. Pictures really don’t do it justice. The gorgeous red 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB will guarantee the finest of smiles per mile with its killer looks, speed, and handling. It’s a sought after dream of a ride that can be yours when you bid for it in Auto Exotix September 29th, 2021.
1980 BMW M1
The BMW M1was designed by Giugiaro and his staff around the proven CSL racing engine. Lamborghini was to build 400 cars, making the design eligible for Group 4 racing. Once complete, a turbocharged version of the CSL six-cylinder would be fitted to the factory race car. However, Lamborghini’s financial problems postponed the start of production and the resulting bankruptcy finally forced BMW to cancel its contract in 1978. BMW subsequently had to confiscate the chassis that would otherwise be sold for scrap. Under a new plan, tube frames were built and fiberglass was molded. The two would be mated by the original Giugiaro staff. The cars would then be shopped from Italy to where Baur, a long time builder of BMW production prototypes, would install the BMW hardware. BMW Motorsports would do the final preparation, giving it a BMW manufacturing plate. This M1 was the 191st of 399 M1’s produced, and it was delivered to its first owner in April 1981. Since then it has remained in absolute pristine condition by its three owners from new. That’s a stylish, sleek, and rare BMW car carrying a production story of ambition, financial ruination, and restoration. It could be yours at Auto Exotix on September 29th, 2021.
