Super-rare Fiat set to storm Coys' inaugural Greek sale


A 1968 Fiat 125 Samantha – one of just 100 built – is expected to make €18-25,000 at Coys’ Athena Greece sale in Athens on 15 June.

The sports car is the work of Italian coachbuilder Vignale and features a 1995cc engine, 5-speed gearbox, ventilated front discs and electronic ignition.

Described as being in excellent condition, the Fiat was recently restored and comes with a factfile documenting the work.

Expected to make rather more is a 1964 Citroën DS19 Décapotable that carries a guide price of €90-110,000.

Converted to DS21 specification in 1969, the car features Citroën’s semi-automatic gearbox and has been with the same owner since 1989.

A 1971 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow LWB once used by former Greek Prime Minister Konstantinos Karamanlis has been valued at €80-100,000.

The Roller has covered just 60,000km and comes with a blue leather interior, plus a file full of photographs documenting its past.

A 1973 Maserati Indy America has an illustrious history, too, having been owned by Peter Monteverdi, founder of the eponymous car manufacturer.

It’s expected to make €40-50,000 as an original car that has been subject to a light restoration.

Offering huge desirability (certainly if recent sales are anything to go by), but at a fraction of the cost of other lots, is a 1962 Messerschmitt KR200 up for €12-15,000.

The microcar’s single-owner status is sure to make it even more appealing to collectors and it has spent much of its life in storage before being subject to a three-year restoration.

Other high-end lots include a 1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Touring Spider (€45-55,000), a 1955 Jaguar XK120 Fixed-head Coupé (€75-90,000) and a 1968 Ferrari 365GT 2+2 (€80-100,000).
