The famous house Sotheby’s is organizing the event on 19th August during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance auctions in California.
The collection presents 27 extraordinary vintage cars, including many top Italian sports vehicles, which are valued at approximately A$135 million. It is one of the most valuable, private car collections ever amassed.
Oscar Davis Car Collection Is Extraordinary
Among the vintage cars set up for auction, we find a 1937 BMW 328 Mille Miglia roadster, a 1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C SS Teardrop Coupe, or a 1953 Ferrari 375MM Spider, each valued at between 10 – 12 million dollars.
Car enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to get their hands on rare 1938 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300B, a real piece of jewelry on wheels worth 2.7 million dollars, and a 936 Lancia Astura Cabriolet Series III valued at up to 2.7 million dollars.
And that's not all. The collection includes a 1955 Maserati A6G/54 2000 Spyder ($5 million) and a 1957 Maserati 450S Spider ($13 million).
"It is unquestionably one of the finest private collections of automobiles gathered by a single owner," says Gord Duff, RM Sotheby’s global head of actions.
According to a Sotheby’s spokesman, of the 27 models on sale to the public, approximately six will be sold to private buyers, all with reserves yet to be determined.
