Maserati tops Zoute sale as Ferrari prototype fails to sell


Top-seller at Bonhams' Zoute, Belgium sale on 11 October was a Mille Miglia-eligible 1958 Maserati A6G/54GT that made £429, 239.

Several key lots failed to sell at the Belgian outing including the headlining 1954 Ferrari 250 Prototype that had been estimated at £640-810,000.

That wasn't to say there weren't some big prices, though, with an extremely low-mileage Lamborghini LM002 selling at £141,454 and an example of the rarest Porsche 964 – the Carrera RS 3.8 – making £229, 253.

The next biggest lot, confirming the current big prices for the model, was the £136,576 made a 1954 Alfa Romeo 1900C Sprint with Pebble Beach history.

The car C&SC highlighted before the sale, a 1949 Austin Sheerline with one-off Vesters & Neirinck Delahaye-alike coachwork went for what looked like a very reasonable £20k, while a 1973 Maserati Bora almost tipped £80,000.

If there was a bargain to be had it was the 1972 Citroën SM that came in at a very market friendly £9755.
