The Type 135 was first introduced in Paris in 1935 and was seen as something of a sensation with a sporting chassis, light steering and a smooth gearbox. Coachwork by Chapron marks out a Delahaye, with previous examples selling for £69,000 at Monaco in 2010.
RM Auctions has announced the lots for one of the world’s most prestigious car auctions – the Monterey sale in Monterey, California.
The 2014 Monterey car auction runs from 15-16 August and coincides with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and Monterey car week. As ever, it is set to feature some of the most expensive cars to be sold at auction.
RM Auctions sold in excess of $86 million worth of cars at Monterey 2013 and is set to follow suit in 2014 with headline cars such as a unique 1961 Ferrari 250 GT N.A.R.T. Spider, a 1965 Ford GT40 Roadster Prototype and a 1964 Ferrari 250 LM by Scaglietti.
