At the upcoming Amelia Island auctions, there are a pair of legendary pre-War cars that could actually top the sale. Gooding & Co. have consigned this achingly beautiful Talbot Lago T150C SS Figoni & Falaschi Teardrop Coupe. Sold new to France, it spent a vast majority of its life in American hands. Among the owners were Tommy Lee, the Nethercutt Collection and Lindley Locke, who owned the car for nearly five decades. Finished in a striking two-tone blue and silver, chassis 90107 has an excess of $10 million pre-sale estimate.
Headlining the RM Sotheby's sale is this Packard Twelve Dietrich Convertible Victoria. It is one of just three known survivors of the highly exclusive model that was built as part of the factory Individual Custom programme. It has been owned by several prominent collectors with the late Frank Ricciardelli as the most recent. Fully restored, it was shown at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it was one of the nominees for the 'best of show' award. Now offered from his estate, 1108-15 should sell for around $4 million.
The last 2022 Formula 1 car to break cover is the Alfa Romeo Racing C42, which was run in the first test sporting a camouflage livery. Powered by the potent Ferrari power unit, the C42 will be driven by Valtteri Bottas and rookie Zhou Guanyu.
