One such car is the one and only 1948 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Competizione Berlinetta. One of just three built, chassis number 920002 is the sole survivor as the other two were destroyed in period competition. With a history as illustrious as its rarity, this unparalleled Alfa was a three-time entrant in the Targa Florio and won second overall, a four-time entrant in the Mille Miglia and clinched third overall, a two-time entrant in the Coppa d'Oro delle Dolomiti and won its class, and placed in a bevy of other period races including the Vittorio Veneto-Cansiglio, Circuito di Pescara and the Treponti-Castelnuovo. To see a video of this marvelous machine in action.

Another star of the Quail Lodge assembly, indeed of the whole Monterey Peninsula Car Week, is what is possibly the best original condition Gullwing extant. The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Coupe is a matching numbers car that is just two owners from new and still retains its original striking red interior and – astoundingly – original coat of factory black paint. And just as tantalizing is the odometer reading less than 59,000 original miles.

Also from Germany is a superb 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Sports Roadster with coachwork by Mayfair and 25 examples from Porsche, including the tremendously desirable models Pre-A Cabriolet, two 356A Speedsters, a one-off Dean Jeffries customized 356A Carrera GS, a 356B Carrera 2, 911 GT2 Clubsport, Ruf CTR3 and 918 Spyder, as examples. Among these are eight cars from the Walter & Emily Mead Collection whose models include a 993 Turbo S, 930 Turbo Slantnose and 911 Carrera Speedster – all in original and low-mileage condition and offered without reserve. 

From England, in addition to important models from Bentley, are 10 examples of Jaguar – all offered without reserve, and a lovely Aston Martin DB4. Also very noteworthy is the collection from the late Bob Koons, formerly of Penske Racing Team, that includes seven MGs – TC, A and B models – and Lotus, most in all original “time capsule” condition, and a stunning E-Type Series I 3.8 Coupe with less than 12,500 original miles. 

Representing Italy are exceptional cars from Maserati, Alfa Romeo, SIATA, Lancia and, from the greatest sportscar marque in history, Ferrari. All told, 15 examples of Ferrari will be offered spanning all four eras – the Enzo Ferrari Era, FIAT Era, Luca di Montezemolo Era and the sadly short-lived Sergio Marchionne Era.  

And in a league of its own is the 2018 Bugatti Chiron hypercar, one of only 500 ever made, with a blistering top speed of 261mph. 

Best of all, a majority of the 135 cars in the upcoming auction, only a few of which have been highlighted here, will be offered without reserve.  

Bonhams’ 21st annual auction during the Monterey Peninsula Car Week (a.k.a Pebble Beach Car Week) is one of the most anticipated sales on the global calendar. Internationally attended, highly acclaimed and with world records achieved each year, it is not to be missed.
