This auction, scheduled for October 11 in Knokke, should bring in between 250,000 and 300,000 euros.
Another car, a 1959 BMW 507 Series II Roadster that belonged to King Constantine II of Greece, will also be offered to the highest bidder on this occasion. This should bring in between 1.9 and 2.3 million euros.
This sale, called Zoute Sale, traditionally takes place on the sidelines of the Zoute Grand Prix, an annual gathering of ancestors organized in Knokke. But this year, due to the sanitary situation, only a limited number of people will be able to attend the sale. However, it will be fully broadcast live on the Bonhams website.
Other ancestors will be sold on this occasion, including a Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso from 1963 estimated between 1.6 and 1.8 million euros.
Corona obliges, this year's Zoute Grand Prix has been postponed to 2021.
