RM Sotheby’s has announced more exciting lots for its forthcoming Paris auction, with the newest entries including a meticiously maintained Porsche 550 RS Spyder and an almost-new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. The auction house will amass more than 60 exquisite collector cars for the Paris sale on 6 February, to take place during the prestigious Rétromobile show week.
1956 Porsche 550 RS Spyder
Among the auction highlights is a remarkably rare 1956 Porsche 550 RS Spyder that is accompanied by an extensive documentation folder from new. Highly sought after by collectors, the 550 Spyder was Porsche’s first dedicated competition car, and chassis no. 550-0082 benefits from a great deal of period competition history. The car placed 1st in the 1956 Course de Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons hill climb and went on to contest the 1956 24 Hours of Le Mans, 1957 1000 KM of Nürburgring and 13 additional races in period.
