Perfect Pair: Original-Owner 1950s Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing and Roadster Headed to Auction

  Perfect Pair: Original-Owner 1950s Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing and Roadster Headed to Auction <p>The SLs are both completely original, unrestored examples owned by a single family since new.</p>Of the two, the Gullwing coupe is the more rare example, as its original owner requested it be specially painted in British Racing Green over a tan interior. It has about 16,000 miles on the odometer and has been in the same family since new, with no restoration or modification undertaken over its 60-plus-year lifetime. The 300SL roadster, purchased by the same family two years later, is equally stunning if a bit less distinctive in its Silver-Blue Metallic exterior and gray leather interior. It also comes with an original fitted luggage set.

Porsche 917 from Steve McQueen's 'Le Mans' goes for auction this summer, again

  Porsche 917 from Steve McQueen's 'Le Mans' goes for auction this summer, again This one was on camera and behind it.Although the car wasn't driven by McQueen personally, it did appear on film. It also helped capture some film, since it was used as a camera vehicle, too. After all, if you're going to be recording race cars on track, you need a car that will keep up with them. According to Gooding & Company, the car was also used as a test car for the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans. After that it was sold to a real factory Porsche driver, Jo Siffert, who subsequently leased the car to McQueen's film company the following year.

The first is a 1975 Tipo 33 TT 12, a factory race car driven by the likes of Derek Bell and Henri Pescarolo. The pair of drivers took this T33 to overall victories at four races over the 1975 racing season at such tracks as Spafrancorchamps and Watkins Glen. The TT 12 was the penultimate version of the successful Tipo 33 racer, with "TT" standing for telaio tubolare (essentially "tube-frame chassis") and the 12 designating the 3.0-liter flat-12 engine tucked immediately behind the driver.

With around 500 horsepower on tap, Alfa Romeo finally won the FIA World Championship of Makes in '75 with its fleet of Tipo 33s and this was one of the cars that helped clinch the title. This specific car was purchased directly from Autodelta, Alfa Romeo's racing division, in 1980 and has been kept by the same owner since then —a total of 37 years. This car would be a sure invite for such vintage racing events as the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.

(May 3, 2017) – Gooding & Company , the official auction house of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®, announces new event days for the Pebble Beach Auctions . This is a rare opportunity to own one of the greatest Alfa Romeos of all time.

If a Tipo 33 is a little too intimidating for you, how about a 1931 6C 1750 Gran Sport? Another Alfa with long-term ownership (the seller has held on to the car since 1966), this 6C 1750 scored a class win at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 1996 and followed that result up with a Best in Show at the 1997 Louis Vuitton Classic at Rockefeller Center.

A series five car, this Alfa has a supercharged 1.7-liter, dual-overhead-cam straight-six under hood (a very advanced design for the early 1930s) and produces around 85 horsepower, which was good for a 90-mph top speed — again, impressive for its day. If you're looking for a vintage Alfa to run historic rally events like the Mille Miglia, Colorado Grand or California Mille, look no further than a 6C 1750.

Gooding and Company estimates the Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 to sell in the $2,000,000 to $2,500,000 range and the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 to go in the $2,400,000 to $2,800,000 range.
