Auction News | Bonhams – The Zoute Sale 2021

The Zoute Sale 1994 BUGATTI EB110 SUPER SPORT

Auctions are an important part of the classic car market. Rare and special vehicles in particular are sold for sometimes extraordinary sums. In our “Auction News” section, we regularly look at the resultsof the most recent auctions. This time, Bonhams the Zoute Sale auction.


As part of the Zoute Sale, a number of special cars were offered to visitors to Bonhams Auction House on 10 October. A total of 60 cars were offered for sale at the Zoute Sale.

These ranged from sports cars such as the 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Speedster – Storck Vintage Edition (Estimate € 850,000 – 1,250,000) to classics such as the 1957 Alfa Romeo 1900C Super Sprint Coupé (Estimate € 160,000 – 200,000). In Addition, the offer included a Lancia collection by Anthony MacLean.


1968 Ferrari 365 GTC

As one of only 168 examples built, this Ferrari 365 GTC made the hearts of the visitors beat faster. The Ferrari 365 GTC replaced the 330 GTC at the end of 1968. The SOHC V-12 engine has a displacement of 4,390 cm³ and produces a proud 320 hp. Furthermore, the 365 benefits from the fact that the gearbox was integrated into the differential, which distributed the weight of the car 50/50. Another special feature is that this model is the first Ferrari for the road which had a fully independent suspension.

Sold for: € 655,500 incl. surcharge.

1970 Maserati Ghibli 4.7-Litre Spyder

Another interesting car was the Maserati Ghibli 4.7-litre Spyder. The Ghibli Coupé is considered a masterstroke for Maserati, bringing the traditional marque to the forefront of the prestigious Gran Turismo market. The Ghibli Coupé was followed by the Ghibli Spyder offered here. This variant of the Ghibli is considered even more popular with fans and collectors. Already at its presentation at the Turin Motor Show in 1968, the Maserati convinced press and public alike.

Sold for: € 494,500 incl. surcharge.

Ferrari F40 Berlinetta

Few Ferrari road cars are as alluring and prestigious as the F40, the last Ferrari signed by Enzo Ferrari before his death in 1988. The iconic F40 was unveiled in 1988 to celebrate Enzo Ferrari’s 40th anniversary as a carmaker.

It is considered the ultimate supercar and is historically significant as it was the first production passenger car to reach a top speed of over 320 km/h. The F40, a two-seater Berlinetta with a mid-engine, was a further development of the 288 GTO produced in small series and, like the latter, had its power unit installed longitudinally instead of transversely.

Sold for: € 1,840,000 incl. surcharge.


Star of the auction was a 1994 Bugatti EB110 Super Sport. The Bugatti EB110 GT was designed by none other than engineer Paolo Stanzani and stylist Marcello Gandini, creators of the Lamborghini Countach super sports car, which causes dreamy looks among fans and collectors alike. With its short nose, wedge-shaped body and gullwing doors, the EB110 GT strongly resembles its Sant’Agata Bolognese counterpart. There were also similarities under the bonnet, as the short-stroke V12 engine with the forward-mounted gearbox had been developed in the Countach.
