Behold: the 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB. Only 250 were made but this – the prototype – was the first.

Fully restored with the modified ‘long nose’ hood, rally lights and ‘prototype yellow’ paintwork  it wore in the 1966 Monte Carlo Rally, this one-of-a-kind icon of Ferrari race history can be yours for a trifling €5.23 million+.


Behold the 1965 Ford GT Competition Prototype – the car that preceded (and laid the foundations for) the Ferrari-beating, Le Mans dominating GT40.

Twelve of these historic prototypes were built, seven raced at Le Mans between 1964 and 1966 including this one – GT/109 – the only roadster version and one of only four surviving examples.

Fully Concours restored and currently accepting bids.


Behold: the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 prototype – a stripped down ultra lightweight racer that marked the beginning of the legendary RS variant.

This is the second of nine prototypes built and was originally gifted to race driver Helmuth Koinigg before returning to Austria after passing through the hands of a US collector.

Still in near mint condition and yours for a mere €1.3 million.


In 1965, Ford made six prototypes of the GT40 – all open-roofed. Five were subsequently converted into hard tops but this one – the first of the six –  once driven by Formula One legend Jim Clark, was left in its original configuration.

The unique roadster can be yours, for an undisclosed but presumably gigantic sum of money.

Behold: the progenitor of the iconic Porsche 911.

This 1964 Porsche 901 Cabriolet prototype is the only drop-top version of 13 pre-production vehicles made and one of only two still in existence. This very chassis was used as a working model for the 1967 Porsche 911 Targa.

A uniquely rare piece of automotive history and yours for €900,000, at the very least.
