Bonhams Quail Lodge auction preview with three rarities ...

Spread over two days for the first time, the Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction will start on Thursday. Today we have taken a detailed look at three of the rarest and interesting cars consigned to the sale. An absolute design classic is this Fiat 8V Ghia Supersonic Coupe. One of eight 8Vs fitted with the futuristic Giovanni Savonuzzi penned bodywork, this car was bought new by Briggs S. Cunningham. Chassis 106*000043 has been comprehensively restored in recent years and was shown at Pebble Beach in 2017.
One of just four, this Porsche 718 RSK Spyder allowed its owners to race in single-seater and sports-car races. The consigned example was sold new to Belgium and raced all over the world. Following a full restoration in the early 1990s, 718-028 has competed in over 100 historic racing meetings, including all five Porsche Rennsport Reunions.
The rarest of the trio is this Ford-engined McLaren M6B of which two were built to this configuration. It was developed for Ford's works supported 1968 Can-Am effort by Carroll Shelby. The big-block engined machine was driven to victory late in the season by Peter Revson. The M6B was later raced with a Chevrolet engine but chassis 50-12 was more recently rebuilt to its original configuration. Today, it is the only Ford big-block engined Can-Am car that is in full running order.

If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
