From Sean Connery’s personal Aston Martin, to an early prototype for the LaFerrari, here are five auctions at Monterey to watch:

1964 Aston Martin DB5

Broad Arrow Auctions

Sean Connery’s personal Aston Martin, purchased by the late actor in 2018 and refinished in Snow Shadow Grey to accurately echo the cars used for “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball.”

1972 Porsche 911 T

Bonhams

The 1972 Porsche 911 features something not seen on the model before or since: a door for the oil filler on the right-rear fender. Making this one even more distinctive is the factory color of Chartreuse.

1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing

Gooding & Company

An unusual combination: a steel-bodied car ordered with many of the desirable options, including the Rudge wheels, often associated with the alloy-bodied examples.

2011 Ferrari LaFerrari

Mecum

What is it? A first-phase prototype for what became the LaFerrari. Mecum will also offer three other LaFerrari prototypes at Monterey, each from a different step in the supercar’s development.

1965 De Tomaso Sport 5000 Spyder by Fantuzzi

RM Sotheby’s

A joint venture between De Tomaso and Shelby–with Peter Brock handling the design work–produced the P70. When that arrangement fell through after just a single car, De Tomaso released this updated racer–again, one of one.
