Robb Report Singapore - - Auctions - By RENYI LIM

Hail­ing from the col­lec­tion of in­dus­trial de­signer Sam Mann and his wife Emily, this is the first Im­mor­tal 2.9 to be of­fered at a pub­lic auc­tion this cen­tury. Fit­ted with a 180bhp, 2,905cc DOHC in­line eight-cylin­der en­gine with dual over­head cams and dual Roots-type su­per­charg­ers, this mas­ter­piece is con­sid­ered the ul­ti­mate Ital­ian sports car of its gen­er­a­tion. Just one of ap­prox­i­mately 12 Tour­ing Spi­ders, its dra­matic chas­sis is com­ple­mented by its cur­va­ceous, well-bal­anced coach­work – all beau­ti­fully re­stored in 1997 by Bri­tish 2.9 ex­pert, Tony Mer­rick. ww.rm­sothe­bys.com
