Bonhams describes the 1928 Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 Sport Zagato Spider that it’s offering at Quail Lodge next month as “a genuine racing car in evening clothes.” Certainly its history at the track is impeccable: Raced by the likes of Phil Hill in the 1978 Monterey Historic Races, it also won gold medals at the Land’s End Trials in 1929 and 1930. The two-time class winner at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance carries an estimate of $600,000 to $800,000.
Another unusual offering at the August 18-19 event, one of the auctions surrounding this years’s Pebble Beach Concours, is a 1957 BMW 507 Roadster. During its four years of its production, only 252 examples were produced. The cars were handmade, and no two are alike. The one that Bonhams will offer has been completely restored, and is estimated at $800,000-$1m.
