The Oldenburg Family Automobile Collection will be among the headline consignments at the 2013 Bonhams Scottsdale auction, scheduled for Thursday, January 17th at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The second annual Bonhams Scottsdale Auction will feature more than 30 cars from the horse breeding family, including multiple models from Jaguar and Ferrari.
Seven models from Jaguar, will be offered, including three roadsters – a 1953 XK120 M, a 1957 XK140, and a 1959 XK150 S. The four other Leaping Cats include three saloons – a 1949 Mark V, 1960 Mark IX and 1960 Mark II, as well as the 1965 E-Type Coupe.
Other British sports cars include the aerodynamic 1936 NB Magnette Airline Coupe, a brace of Austin-Healeys – a 1956 100/4 and a 1962 3000 MKI, and a 1952 Morgan Plus Four Drophead Coupe.
Among the headline Italian entrants is a 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV that retains its original interior and colour scheme – red with gold accents.
Of the Ferrari models, perhaps most noteworthy are the 1968 Ferrari 330 GTS Spyder and the 1967 Ferrari 365 GTC Prototype. The former is one of just 99 built by Maranello and the latter is a one-off created for the president of Pirelli, Leopoldo Pirelli. It was ordered new using the existing 330 GTC body style but with the enlarged 365 motor, fitted with handmade five-spoke magnesium wheels. Rounding out the Prancing Horse stable are a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE, a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Coupe, and a 1972 246 GT Dino Coupe.
