Bonhams is pleased to announce that two very special mid-century sporting cars have been consigned to the January 2019 auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.
From England is the former Team Cunningham 1959 Lister-Jaguar Sports Racer driven by Stirling Moss and Walt Hansgen, and the SCCA C-Modified National Championship Winner. This victorious competition car designed by Frank Costin during the golden years of post-war racing is considered one of the most original examples in existence. Rare, pedigreed and successful, it’s an exceptional motorcar worthy of the finest collections.
From Italy is an exquisite 1952 Maserati A6G 2000 Spider. This very rare model with coachwork by Frua – one of only three ever built – has been expertly researched, documented and restored, and shown at the finest concours d’elegance in the world, namely Pebble Beach and Villa d’Este. It’s a pure and pristine example of one of the most sought after Italian bespoke open-top sports cars.
Renowned for its impeccable breadth of selection, Bonhams annual auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, now in its 8th year, during Car Week is one of the most anticipated sales of the year. Attended by a global gathering of automotive aficionados, each year has seen world auction records made with models from Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche, to name but a few. Find out more here.
