Could be an interesting one up for auction?

34 posts in this topic

To answer my own question, having looked through the lot list I realised its probably part of the huge confiscated consignment from Italy I read about a month back, all no reserve.

This brand new untouched group N escos straight from Cologne has to be unique now and that was part of the batch, tax evasion I think it was,

I think the Italian Inland Revenue is a lot keener to sell than he was!, probably to pay for the owners porridge I imagine!

The list of Ferraris he owned alone was amazing, most of the stuff in the auction is from his stockpile

bit of a gamble

as the engine is out of the car

and looks like parts stripped, and the cam wheels are of head

so would suggest a full engine rebuild atleast

I was looking into Luigi Racing Sierra's but can't find any results from 1987. I believe they raced Alfa's in 1987.

The pound being on its arse is not going to help any Brit bidders either.

I imagine every classic dealer in Europe will be at the auction given the vast number of no reserve cars there.

With 500s being in the spotlight in recent years, it's not going to be a bargain thats for sure.

and to paying  100000  and more  fore a road version  is  logical???   or  the  asking  price  of  texaco  or bastos  is  logical,,,,   the  asking  price  for  the  B&h  was  135000  and  my  opinion  is  that  is  a  fair  price  for  a car  that   hit    some  races  and  pole  potition  in  atcc  with  1  of   the best driver  in the  world  at  80ish,,,,,  conclusion  anywone pay  as  they  want  the  hard  and not sow  hard earned money   ,,,,,  its  a  open  market   ,,,,  maybe  this  gye  hoo bid  the  louigi  was  a young  boy  in  the  barriers  of  spa  or silverstone   and  say  to  himself  one  day  i have  this  car  no mater,,,,,  i admire  the  passion  and  dedication  to  rs500  to  this  byers  ho  bring  back  in life  this  fantastic  car  ,,,,,,,yes  if  i have  this  nubers    i  give it  easy  to  live  onse  the  dream  too  run  in track  those  cars   to  live  the  sweat  in my  back,,,,,
