The next major auction on what seems a relentless schedule is tomorrow's RM Sotheby's Paris sale. This is a livestream sale, which allows for remote bidding only. Today we take a look at three of the most interesting lots to cross the block. The rarest of this trio is the unique Isdera Commendatore 112i, which was originally shown at the 1993 Frankfurt Motor Show. The striking machine is powered by a Mercedes-Benz V12 engine and famously starred in the Need for Speed II video game. It was later modified but has since been restored to its original configuration by Isdera themselves. The one-off Commendatore has now been consigned by Isdera and is offered at no reserve.
Also available in the sale are two recent V12-engined Ferraris. One is the original F12tdf prototype that was shown at the car's 2015 Finali Mondiali debut. It was eventually auctioned off for charity to celebrate Enzo Ferrari's 120th birthday. The winning bidder of that sale has now consigned the F12tdf to the Paris auction. Not as well publicised is the 599 GTZ Nibbio Spyder, which was based on a 2009 599 GTB and later modified by Zagato to its current configuration. It is believed that just nine 599s were modified to Nibbio guise by the Milanese coach-builder in the last couple of years. Chassis 165830 was signed off by Zagato early in 2020 and has been barely used since.
Audi have expanded the all-electric e-tron line-up with this very aggressive looking and very powerful RS e-tron GT. Courtesy of front- and rear-mounted electric motors, the RS e-tron GT has a combined 590 bhp on tap.
Czech specialist racing car builder Praga have introduced a comprehensively revised version of the mid-engined R1. It has a more powerful engine, a larger fuel tank and still weighs in at just 643 kg. Among the series for which the compact machine is eligible is the Britcar Endurance Championship where its predecessor won the championship in 2020 with seven outright victories in nine races.
