Clearly, the values of the "three big" Classic Lamborghini - 350/400GT, Miura and Countach - are strongly on the rise. This "corrective action" from the market is directly related with the prices reached by the equivalent Ferrari (250 GT Lusso, GTB, 330/365 GTC), comparable for performance, prestige and scarcity. Today, most collectors wish to combine their passion for Cars with safe and wise investment. This explains why the rarest Classics of the XXth Century are becoming one of the favourite acquisition of smart investors everywhere on the planet. Collector cars from one of the most prestigious makes (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Bugatti...) are a perfect investment today, before the "very rare and very prestigious" become unaffordable : only a few hundreds Miura, Countach, Ferrari 250 of each type were ever built. Even less remain still survive today... The demand being in rapid expansion, the market is logically and inevitably rising, and it is only the beginning.

I am a Legend

 

The Source of the Myth : LAMBORGHINI 350 GT, the very first Lamborghini ever offered to wealthy Sports Cars enthusiasts. A car that  immediately humbled contemporary Ferraris

With its glorious V12 - 4-cam 3.5-litre powerplant designed by Bizzarrini, and its exquisite styling, the 350 GT is considered by many experts as Ferruccio's most important Masterwork

 

Lamborghini is the only Car manufacturer in History that has gained an immediate, world-wide fame with its first model.

It could have come from the outer space : the 350 GT, presented by a then unknown Company was technically superior to the contemporary Ferraris - the pinnacle of Sports Cars at that time. With its magnificent 4 OHC V12 all-alloy engine, front and rear independant suspension, Dallara-engineered chassis, an incredible quality of details, and a revolutionnary style that went beyond the mainstream of the early sixties. The shape combines elegance and energy, with not even a fraction of inch in excess ; the distinctive oval headlights stand proudly over the front boot in a sculptural manner ; the roof and pillars are of an exquisite delicacy, in contrast with the long and masculine front end ; the hyper-elegant and minimalist rear fenders suggest serene and immense power without any useless gimmick.

As a matter of fact the bodywork of the 350 GT is absolutely unique and has no common part with the 400 GT, that came just after : general volume is lower, rear window is larger, front fenders are more fluid ; the style is of a genius - Carlo Bianchi Anderloni of Touring - , a graceful and perfect inspiration. This rare automobile is comparable to a Michel-Angelo or Raphaël sketch. Nothing is overplayed, yet everything is there. The 350GT is a pure two-seater, lighter and leaner than the 400 GT 2+2. This light weight is the result of the use aluminum for all bodywork elements - (steel on the 400), fitted on a highly elaborated Superleggera thin tubular structure. The 3,5 Litre of the 350 GT became a 4,0-Litre for the 400, and the gearbox is a ZF, whilst Lamborghini used their own, more economical gearbox for the 400GT.

The number of 350 GT built is not clearly established : in these early days (and even later) Lamborghini didn't pay much attention to records and archiving. Official production figure is 120, but there are reasons to believe that only a hundred were actually delivered. The wherebouts of at least thirty 350 GT is unknown. On today's market, the offer of 350 GTS is very limited - not to say non-existent. The rare and privileged Collectors who own a 350 GT keep them safely in their garage, as an inestimable Automotive Art Master Work.

 

 

A sublime modern sculture : with minimalist finesse Bianchi-Anderloni (Touring) combined power and elegance to achieve a unique Masterwork.

This car is the one that was displayed on the Lamborghini Stand at the Salon de l'Auto de Paris 1964 (picture below).

 

 

 

 

For decades, AUTODROME has been collecting, restoring and selling the most beautiful and rare Classic Lamborghini.

             MONTE-CARLO LAMBORGHINI V12 :  Pioneering the Carbon fibre technology - A Myth that you can drive...        

 

 

 

Left: Henri Pescarolo and the Monte-Carlo-Lamborghini V12 on the Paul-Ricard track in 1993. After the test, the triple le Mans winner says: "impressive efficiency"...

Right: the resurrected Monte-Carlo-Automobile make presented the ALA-50 stradale in 2008, a road-legal version of their multi-fuel racing car

 

 

Monte-Carlo Automobile is the manufacturer with the smallest production ever : hardly 10 (ten) cars have ever been built. Monte-Carlo cars are designed and built in Monaco, the Motor Sport Mecca... Its takes its origin and inspiration from racing cars, with a significant Italian engineering input.

 

Monte-Carlo Automobile was founded by former race driver Fulvio Ballabio. Ballabios's Team included the famous Carlo Chiti (designer of the Shark-Nose F1 Ferrari, multi-F1 World Champion titles winner, and former Alfa-Romeo & Autodelta engineer). Guglielmo Bellasi, racing cars designers and pioneer of carbon fibre technology partcipated in the project and designed the first carbon-fibre chassis in History (for a road-car). Prince Albert of Monaco, a Car enthusiast and Collector, activeley supported MCA from the very beginning, and is still a priviledged partner for the make. Two Monte-Carlo participated in the 24 heures of Le Mans tests in 1993, one was powered by the V12 provided by Lamborghini, the other by an experimental V12 designed by Chiti for Monte-Carlo.

 

24 years have past since the first Monte-Carlo, the Lamborghini-powered Centenaire was introduced by Princess Stephanie, in 1990 at the Monaco Grand Prix. This super-GT powered by the legendary V12 was the very first road-legal car boasting a carbon-fibre chassis and bodywork, even before the Bugatti EB110 ! This material was until then used only in  Formule 1 and racing Prototypes. Monte-Carlo Automobile is also the only car manufacturer officially authorised by Lamborghini to use their engines. More information : please click here.

 

 

Monte-Carlo "Rascasse" : born from competition models, this supercar exsudes exclusivity and refinement...

 

The new Monte-Carlo, named "Rascasse" after the famous bend of the Monaco track, can be delivered as a berlinette, powered by a W12 derived for an AUDI block, or as a Spider, the Beau-Rivage, fitted with a Rolls-Royce sourced V12 . The small size and the strong identity of the Monaco-based make, supported by Prince Albert, enables each Client to enjoy a truly exclusive Tourisme, hand-made, and capable of very high performance. P.O.R.

 

 

The very first Monte-Carlo Lamborghini was presented at the Monaco GP in 1990 by Princess Stéphanie. The car was bought by Lamborghini (right picture taken at the Lamborghini Factory). A few years later this example (# EL002, for Esperimentale Lamborghini) was bought back by Fulvio Ballabio, founder of the make.

This first Monte-Carlo ever built is now the property Autodrome Paris

 

 

 

Monte-Carlo cars in competition :

 

 

The Monte-Carlo at the 4 Hours of Monza in 2012 : winner in its Class, and 8th overall, driven by Arturo Merzario

Engine is a W-12 6-litre boasting 550 HP. The Monaco-based Monte-Carlo Automobile has definitely racing DNA

 

ALA 50 : retour de MCA sur le marché des supercars

 

Monte-Carlo Lamborghini V12, with carbon-fibre chassis and bodywork ; a touch of mystery and luxury...

 


 

 

 

 

Original DE TOMASO Pantera GT5-S, the ultimate, most powerful Pantera. One of 187 built. Excellent condition

 

The GT5-S is the ultimate, most powerful Pantera: V8, 355 HP, ZF gearbox, integrated steel fenders (riveted plastic extensions on previous version)

The mighty and ultra-rare GT5-S is not to be confused with other versions, including the poorely face-lifted & less powerful, fuel-injected SI

Around 7000 Pantera have been delivered - but the hand-made GT5/S, forerunner of modern supercars, is “the” Pantera for discerning Collectors

Like the front-engine Chevrolet-powered Bizzarrini (now in the 500K€ range) , the mid-engine V8 Ford De Tomaso Pantera is one of the superstars of the 80s

 

 

PRICE: 130,000 €

ASTON MARTIN DB2 VANTAGE - 1952, unique orignal condition with orignal Bordeaux leather upholstery.

The DB2 Vantage is a racing car for the road (strictly a 2-searter, contrary to the DB2/4), that gave birth to the Aston Martin Legend at Le Mans.

 

PRICE : On request

 

Classic Aston Martin : their market value is on the rise

 

All Classic Aston Martin are more and more sought-after. DB5/DB4, and now DB6 and DB2 - the rarest of all - are recognsied as icons of the Aston Martin glory. The DB2 Vantage actually won the Class Victory at Le Mans 1961, as well a s 3rd and 5th position overall. The Legend was born. Very few D2 Vantage are available on the market : only 300 coupés were ever built, and Collectors do no easily part with them.

 

At the Le Mans Classic Auction sale (June 5th), a DB2/4 Cabriolet changed hands for three times the estimate (!) at 692,000 €.

 

A 1952 Aston Martin DB2 Coupé just changed hands at a RM Auction (February, 6th) for 364.000 - in spite of a non orignal 2.9 L engine (the DB2 was delivered with 2.6 L engines, the 2.9 L. arrived later in 1954 on the DB2/4).

Inspired by the Ford GT40, the French berlinetta JIDE Gordini 1600 challenged the Alpine-Renault

 

Short wheel base, racing chassis, only 1 m. high, Jacques Durand's brainchild is a hidden gem, offering awesome driving sensations.

This particular car, fittted with the best specs - 1600 Gordini FR engine, Unibal suspensions, now belongs to the Autodrome Collection

 

Built in very limited number (around 130 cars), with high-quality racing components, the Jidé was seen with Jean Ragnotti at the Critérium des

Cévennes, but also at the Tour de France, and won the Rallye du Poitou. Jidé's ridiculously tiny budget never allowed this small wonder

to demonstrate its high-potential. But this berlinette remains the best rival for the Alpine Renault in their displacement Class...

 

The Jidé is designed and built like a true racing prototype : monocoque composite chassis integrating a tubular space frame,

engine is from the Formule Renault 1596 cc. Gordini, suspensions (on our car) are double triangles with Unibal, with adjustable Bilstein,

 AP calipers, ventilated discs... Lightweight, very rigid structure, strong engine, this compact GT is very difficult to find and now highly sought-after.

A FERRARI ASA changes hands for nearly 190,000 Euros at a public auction in Paris !

 

 

The lovely ASA, with its Ferrari DNA, is the brainchild of Enzo Ferrari, Lampredi, Colombo and Bizzarrini ... a most rare and fascinating GT !

This ASA Ferrari 1965 was first acquired by a private client ; then, in the 70s, after the Company went bankrupt, it was bought by the De Nora family (founders of the firm ASA).

The price of 186,500 Euros, comparable to a 250 GT V12 , demonstrates that these ulra-rare Italian GTs (hardly eighty in existence) belong to the magical Enzo Ferrari Legend.

 

 

 

 

Left : During the ritual Press conference in 1959, Commendatore Enzo Ferrari presented the first (and only) Ferrari engine with less than 1 litre capacity : 854cc exactly.

Right : Ferrari himself road tested the first prototype. Temporary bodywork is derived from a Fiat, but tubular chassis is "made in Ferrari", designed by Giotto Bizzarrini.

 

 

Left : first prototype tested at Monza in 1960. From left to right : Lorenzo Bandini, Carlo Chiti, Forghieri (in white) and Ferrari driver and tester Richie Ghinter.

Right : the first prototype and the second one named "Mille", styled by Giugiaro ; the latter will be on the Bertone Stand at the Torino Motor Show in 1961.

 

 

This factory picture clearly suggest that the same blood runs into ASA and Ferrari. They share race experience and Luxury GT ambitions.

 

       

 

 

 

 

The ASA Ferrari 1000 GT in its final version. Left: 1000GT, capacity of the engine is now 1032cc.

The ASA boasts a higher power-to-capacity ratio than the contemporary 275 GTB (90 HP/litre against 85 for the GTB) and close to the LM (95 HP/l.)

 

 

Ferrari driver Lorenzo Bandini participated in the ASA FERRARI project. General shape of the car is not far from the 250 GT "Lusso" (1962), hence the knickname "Baby Lusso".

 

 

 

The superb profile of the ASA Ferrari 1000GT. Pure, timeless elegance, suggestive details like the central-locking wheels, the whole car exsudes Ferrari DNA.

 


 

 

 

  AUTODROME has acquired the two fabulous CD-PANHARD built for the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans - it was Panhard's swan song in motor racing.

These extremely advanced prototypes are still, half-a-century after the race, the State-of-the Art in pure aerodynamics, and exceptionnally spectacular.

 

 

24 H. of Le Mans, 1964 : The mighty Ford GT and the Panhard-CD were among the most spectacular ptototypes of this legendray race.

Panhard, for their very last official participation in the race, and Charles Deutsch, with his advanced-technology research Team, reached a form of perfection.

THE REMARKABLE LOTUS EUROPE Series 1

 

A major step in Sports cars History: how Chapman brought the F1 feeling to the road.

 

 

 

 

The Lotus Europe - type 46 -, revealed in 1966 is one of the very first GT with central engine, very close to racing prototypes.

Only a few have survived. Driving sensations are second to none. The competition (type 47) version was a huge success on track.

Sought after by most Collectors, Classic GTs are hand-built automobiles that are impossible to obtain today, because of the legislation.

Interest for these lightweight sports cars is rising: Alpine 1300/1600, Porsche 911 short wheel base (1966-67) are steadily on the rise in the market.

In 1964, the famous French make Panhard and Charles Deutsch (founder of DB, and designer of the Porsche 917) team-up to create a prototype aiming to win its class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans...

The Panhard-CD remains the very last Panhard race car, and a key milestone in the History of racing cars.

AUTODROME MEETS FERRUCCIO LAMBORGHINI'S TEAM  NEAR VERONA (28-29 September)

Ferruccio Lamborghini presents the first V12 Lamborghini engine, designed by ex-Ferrari Giotto Bizzarini.

 

 A few of the fine automobiles parked during the Lamborghini meeting.

 

AUTODROME was invited to a really unique event : a friendly gathering of all the people who made the Lamborghini legend. Paolo Stanzani, Giotto Bizzarini, Ubaldo Sgarzi, Claudio Zampolli, GianCarlo Guerra, Orazio Salvioli, Fabio Lamborghini, Umberto Marchesi (chassis manufacturer) are only a few names among Ferruccio Lamborghini's Team that came to Sant'Agata for this exceptional days.

 

From L to R . 1- Neldo Levy (Autodrome) and Cesare Lodi, former Lamborghini test driver . 2- Edmond Ciclet, former Lamborghini France Technical Director talks to N. Levy and Paolo Stanzani, who designed  the Miura with Dallara, and the Countach, and Lamborghini CEO in the 70s. 3- Michel Levy (Autodrome) with  Giancarlo Guerra, former Scaglietti Head, who then was in charge of the Countach bodywork shop at Lamborghini. 4- M. Levy with Ubaldo Sgarzi, former Lamborghini and Pagani Commercial Director. 5- M. Levy with engineer Giotto Bizzarini who designed the first V12 Lamborghini after designing the Ferrari GTO. 6 - M. Levy with Paolo Stanzani, "God" for many Lamborghini lovers.

This gathering was focusing on people rather than cars, and very different from other events. It is very important to listen to all these key players of a period now gone, so as to record and preserve all the available information on the History of Lamborghini. This avoids all risks of distortion or mishandling of essential historical information. As Lamborghini collectors and historians, we have always strived to stay in direct contact with the former Lamborghini people, and we will continue to update and complete available information on this magical period.

 

 

The Lamborghini 350 GT of Edmond Ciclet (former Technical Director of the Lamborghini network in France).

This car is one of the earliest Lamborghini in existence, and it is of course in perfect condition : 1200 km, and back were just a warm-up.

As anticipated, this magnificent classic won the most sought-after prize of the best Lamborghini at the meting..

 

 

We also had the opportunity to talk Mr. Pasolini, the man who was in the mythical Miura Jota when it "took off" in the accident that destroyed it completely. Mr. Pasolini woke up at the hospital, and very luckily alive. The Jota inspired the creation of the rare Miura SVJ, now the most sought-after of all Lamborghini. Only one Miura SVJ was built as a Spider, and we have supervised the complete restoration of its superb bodywork and upholstery - see below. This restoration was done in partnership with the prestigious Carrosserie Lecoq, the best expert for this kind of work.

THE FAMOUS JAPANESE MAGAZINE "ROSSO" PRESENTS RARE LAMBORGHINIS OF THE AUTODROME COLLECTION

 

 

The famous luxury Japanese magazine ROSSO, specialising in classic cars, especially Lamborghini and Ferrari, was visiting Autodrome-Cannes a few months ago and has issued a long article on some of the "pearls" of the Lamborghini Autodrome collection (please click on the photos to open the 2 MB pdf document). The Lamborghini Motorcycle was not only the only Lamborghini bike in History, it was the most outrageous and expensive in the world, with high-tech racing features and hand-built quality. Only 5 in the world have survived today.. This one of course in the Autodrome Lamborghini Collection.

 AUTODROME PARIS PRESENTS THE FABULOUS RACING CD-PANHARD OF LE MANS 1964

The famous charity event "SPORT & COLLECTION, 300 FERRARI AGAINST CANCER" took place last week-end (1-2-3 june) on the Val-de-Vienne Circuit near Poitiers. 

AUTODROME was presenting the CD-PANHARD LM64,  one of the only two extraordinary prototypes having taken part in the 24 hours of Le Mans 1964, along with the Ford GT40, the Ferrari 275 P and GTO... A perfect opportunity to meet our clients and friends, and share our passion for classic and sports automobiles around this wonderful and famous racing car.

We had the pleasure to park side by side the fabulous CD-Panhard prototype built for Le Mans, and the production Panhard-CD : both cars

demonstrate the talent of Charles Deutsch, and engineer who took the Panhard-Levassor story one step ahead - the wonderful end of a Legend.

Our CD-Panhard on the track : taken over by a Ferrari prototype, driven by David Piper in person ! What more could you dream of ?

A resurrection of a scene from the 24 Heures of Le Mans, with Ferrari (275, 330 P, LM), Ford GT, Cobra, and CD LM 64 as key players.

Another memorable scene, seen from the cockpit of the CD-Panhard LM64: we give way to a fabulous Ford GT40.

In the 1964 Le Mans race, the last surviving Ford driven by Phil Hill & Bruce Mc Laren retired roughly at the same time as our CD #45.

The two CD prototypes of Le Mans 1964 now both in our Collection...

Left, the CD of the 1964 Le Mans: one of the most memorable prototypes ever built. Charles Deutsch, the engineer who designed it, has founded the modern aerodynamics.

Right, the same year: the Ford GT 40 (Schlesser-Attwood) and the Maserati 151 (Simon-Trintignant), challenged the Ferrari 275 and 330 P.

 

This 1964 picture, taken just before the race, clearly shows the bold concept of the car and how far it was ahead of its time

The quality of construction is obvious, and the shapes are close to perfection, following the advanced theories of Charles Deutsch.

These two cars belong to history and we are proud to present them in our Collection. (POA)

PASSION FOR CLASSICS : WHY A HANDFUL OF "OLD" AUTOMOBILES ARE SO SOUGHT AFTER...

Passion for Classic Cars is on the rise ; there are good reasons for this, based on objective factors:

 

Buying a classic is a joy for everyday of your life: admiring and driving a fine car is a privilege, provided by the best egineers in History...

- The beauty of the classic shapes is out of reach today, because of safety rules, crash-test obligations and marketing dictatorship... Never more will car makers be able to offer such exquisite style.

- Classic Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Bentleys are still more affordable than new ones.... And a brand-new car looses half of its value in 5 years, whilst a classic can only rise.

- There is much more demand than offer - and quite simply, that is why the price will only continue to rise, slowly but surely.

 

As a result, investing a classic car - provided that you can select the right models and one of the best examples available, is the best use that you could make of a reasonable amount of money: from 50.000 to 500.000 Euros, there are opportunities that it would be very wise to catch ...

Very similar to the famous art masters Cézanne, Picasso, Matisse, the greatest car makers of History have now disappeared (with rare exceptions such as Pagani) - very few have been decisive and quick enough to buy theese masters' paintings when they were still affordable.

One of the best examples if probably the very first Countach (LP400), much rarer and more important than the Miura (around 130 Countach LP400 still in existence, against over 600 Miura). The LP400 Countach is without any doubt one of the most remarkable cars of the XX the Century, both by its History role for Lamborghini, for the GT cars History, and for its combination of outrageous, advanced styling with a state-of-the-Art engine and technical design. If you can buy one, don't hesitate even a second and don't let it go...

They just want to live up to their true expectations. One very special day, you see a car : it's this one  and no other - you just need it.

For many educated people, it's a Classic car...
