Some of the highlights include a 1994 Bugatti EB110 GT finished in Bugatti Blue over a special-order two-tone grey leather interior, this quad-turbocharged EB110 benefits from a short ownership history reportedly consisting of just four private caretakers with an estimate ranging between $1,600,000 – $2,000,000. Another rare supercar on offer is a 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort acquired in the fall of 2021 after 29 years of single-family ownership. Presented in a desirable color combination of Grand Prix White over dark blue leather, this extensively documented Porsche comes with a numbers-matching engine and a recent service by Policaro Performance in October 2022 with an estimate ranging from $1,600,000 – $2,000,000.

The Ferrari F40 remains one of the most desirable Ferraris and a hallmark in the world of performance cars with this being a 1992 example having a short ownership history consisting of as few as two caretakers and displays 19,697 kilometers (~12,239 miles) at cataloguing. Specified for the European market and equipped with a catalytic converter, this F40 has an estimate of $2,200,000 – $2,800,000.
