| 12 Dec 2012

Some of the world’s most desirable Italian, British and American cars that form part of the Oldenburg Family Automobile Collection are to sell at Bonhams’ Scottsdale sale on 17 January.

Heading the collection is a 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV that retains its original paintwork, plus interior and is estimated to make up to $1.1million.

Ferraris on offer include a 1968 330 GTS Spyder ($650-850,000) – one of just 99 built – and a 1967 365 GTC ($400-500,000).

The latter was a one-off created for Pirelli boss, Leopoldo Pirelli. It features a 365 motor enlarged by 400cc and is fitted with handmade five-spoke magnesium wheels.

Rounding off the illustrious list of Maranello-built Italians are a 1962 250GTE ($150-200,000), a 1972 365GTB/4 Daytona Coupé ($350-400,000) and a 1972 246GT Dino ($140-160,000).

British talent includes Jaguars ranging from a 1953 XK120M roadster to a 1957 XK140 OTS and a 1959 XK150S roadster. They are estimated to make $100-120,000,  $80-100,000 and $120-150,000 respectively.

The big cats are joined by one of the world’s rarest MGs – the 1936 NB Magnette Airline Coupé. It carries a guide price of $200-250,000.

American machines from the prominent horse-breeding family’s collection include a 1928 Ford AR Pickup (£18-25,000), a 1965 Shelby GT350 Coupe muscle car ($180-220,000) and a 1956 Chevy Nomad station wagon (£45-55,000).
