The 1970 Alpine A110 1600S was campaigned in over 150 events since 1970. Raced by noted Alpine driver Michel Bessac throughout the early 1970s, Bessac re-acquired the car in 1990 and gave the A110 a second career as a historic racer. It’s been professionally restored in correct Group 4 specification.

The 1975 Lamborghini Countach LP400 ‘Periscopica,’ one of only 158 made, has been owned by collectors in Germany and Italy before settling with its current owner in the U.S. A car rarely seen on the open market, this one features a matching-numbers engine.
