Top five Italian jewels from RM Sotheby's Amelia Island auction


The Amelia Island auctions are one of the highlights of the classic calendar, and a number of incredible lots have already been announced for this year’s events by some of the leading auction houses. 

RM Sotheby’s sale, which takes place on 10-11 March, has been extended thanks to the addition of the Orin Smith Collection, a staggering lineup of 58 cars which includes everything from a 1929 Phantom I Henley Roadster by Brewster – one of just two Henley prototypes built on the Phantom I chassis – to the world’s most famous PII Continental, the ex-Raymond Gentile 1934 Phantom II Continental Drophead Sedanca Coupé by Gurney Nutting.

However, it’s the sale's Italian classics which could prove the stars of the show. Here is our roundup of the top five Italian classics from RM Sotheby's Amelia Island offering. 

1950 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Coupé by Touring


1961 Ferrari 250GT SWB Berlinetta by Scaglietti
