BONHAMS HEADS TO ITALY
Bonhams is to hold its first classic car auction in Italy. It’ll take place alongside Auto e Moto d’epoca – Italy’s bestattended classic car show – on October 28. The event is held annually in Padua, near Venice, and last year attracted 4500 vehicles and 90,000 visitors. Early entries include a rare Zagato-bodied Lancia Flaminia Sport 3C. Restored in the early Nineties and used sparingly but regularly since, it’s one of 70 examples built with the ultimate 2.8-litre triple-carburettor engine. Estimate is £360-450k.
