RM Monterey preview with Aston Martin DB4 GT, final Pantera and striking Ferrari ...

Tomorrow, the RM Sotheby's Monterey sale will kick off with its first of three days. Thursday evening is dedicated exclusively to Aston Martins. One of the headliners is this DB4 GT. Originally owned by a young British painter, it was later raced extensively by a subsequent owner. At that time a spare engine was fitted, which was actually one of the units originally fitted to the rare Lightweight models and used by Stirling Moss. In more recent years this DB4 GT was used as the basis for the continuation DB4 GTs. It is estimated to sell for $3-3.4 million.
The other two days offer a colourful mix of rare machinery that also include this one-off Ferrari 375 MM Ghia Coupe Speciale. Built on a competition car chassis, it the salmon coloured machine is the last Ferrari clothed by Ghia and was ordered new by Bob Wilke of Leader Card fame. The 375 MM has survived in remarkably original condition and is estimated to sell for over $5 million.
Another rare machine offered that is a little more affordable is this DeTomaso Pantera Si. It is the ninth of 41 examples of what would be the final version of the original Pantera. Estimated to sell for $275,000 - $325,000, this is the first Pantera Si ever offered at auction.
In addition to the classic cars, the Monterey week will also feature several world debuts. Among them will be this Acura Type S Concept. The show car heralds the return of the legendary high performance Type S moniker in the Acura line-up.
