OFF THE BLOCK
We keep you up to date with the hottest lots under the hammer.
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
