Auction Preview: Coys Techno Classica
Having put you in a classic in time for the summer at their recent ‘Spring Classics’ auction in London, Coys are heading to Essen, Germany, for ‘Techno Classica’.
The stand-out is this ex-Troy Corser 1999 Ducati Factory 996 RS Superbike. Driven to three wins, 13 podiums, five poles and six lap records by the two-time World Superbike Champion, this 996 has some serious providence. You’ll need between €65,000 and €85,000.
Named after the successful 500 Mondial, which itself was named for Alberto Ascari’s Formula One World Championship wins, the Ferrari Mondial is a mid-engined V8 that’s perfect for a spot of motorsport.
This particular car was built for Jean-Pierre Van Rossum of Moneytron Onyx Formula One and raced in the 1989 24 Hours of Spa Francochamps at the hands of Keke Rosberg. It was entered in the 1990 Belgian Propar championship, in which it contested one race before Van Rossum’s finances ran dry.
It came out of storage in 2010, after which it received a complete overhaul to its 1989 configuration using original Ferrari parts.
Fresh from a complete, no-expense-spared mechanical and cosmetic rebuild, this lovely ’65 911 comes complete with FIA papers – a sweet little historic racer. It’s expected to go for between €65,000 and €80,000.
Finally, we head back to the ’30s and this 1934 Lagonda Rapier. This particular car was rebuilt as a single-seater racing special and run extremely successfully at historic racing events. It has been recently restored and is ready for more.
It is expected to fetch between €65,000 and €85,000.
Coys ‘Techno Classica’ sale will be held in Essen, Germany, on Saturday the 24th of March, 2012. Head to the Coys website here for more info.
