Celebrating its newfound status as the official auction house for the Villa d’Este Concourso d’Eleganza, RM has announced two early major draws for its May 21st debut sale on the shores of Lake Como. The first is a very rare 1955 Ferrari 375 MM Berlinetta by Pinin Farina. Equally remarkable is an immaculately restored 1938 Talbot-Lago T150C-SS Teardrop Coupe with coachwork by Figoni et Falaschi.
RM didn’t release estimates for the cars, but no one will be surprised if they sell for stratospheric amounts. Following a concours-quality restoration by Wayne Obry’s Motion Products, the gorgeous two-tone Ferrari won ‘Best in Class” at Pebble Beach in 2004 and the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in 2005. The Talbot-Lago, after a restoration by RM, also snagged a ‘Best in Class” at Pebble Beach in 2009.
