UK auction house Bonhams' Les Grandes Marques à Monaco Sale, one of the most important events on the annual collector-car calendar, is being held both live and online at the Fairmont Monte-Carlo overlooking the famous hairpin bend of the Monaco Grand Prix circuit on April 23.
As always there's an exciting array of cars on offer, ranging from Le Mans competitors from the 1930s to (by comparison) modern Porsches, Ferraris and more. Here are five of our favorites:
With its coachwork by Pininfarina, Cars Illustrated has described this Italian beauty as "one of the most delightful small sports cars which will ever be produced." Est. $110,000–$140,000.
The winner of numerous classic car concours, this very rare convertible version of the iconic DB6 comes finished in its period correct paint, called Rolls-Royce Coffee Bean Brown. $540,000–$660,000.
One of only five built, this is one of the rarest Porsche production road cars ever made and is a must-have for the serious Porsche collector, Bonhams notes. Est. $780,000–$1 million.
This much more modern Porsche, a 2nd Series Carrera RS in Touring specification, was delivered new in Italy in April 1973 and retains all of its valuable original equipment. Est. $540,000—$660,000.
One of the most historically important cars in the sale, this French-made racer was built for the 1936 Le Mans 24 Hours race, and went on to compete in dozens of competitions prior to World War II. $960,000–$1.3 million.
