Originally scheduled as a live auction in Essen, Germany at the end of this March, RM Sotheby’s European Sale has moved online with bidding open on June 3 and closing on June 11. A Porsche 904 GTS, a Lamborghini Miura, and a Mercedes-Benz 300SL are among the highlights.

Bitter was involved with Intermeccanica at one point. Intermeccanica made some nice looking cars back in Europe, but always got screwed by larger manufacturers.
Actually I think it strongly resembles the ASA 1000GT built around the same time period. They were built by the D'Noro electromechanical group. Originally meant to be a "Baby Ferrari" Enzo sold the rights to build it to the D'Noro group.
Wonderful guys. I've not seen some of these cars. I happen to love the Renault. I have a Lotus XI, and it reminds me of that fun ride. Jim.
Kooky indeed! This selection is a set of truly rare (and a bit kooky) cars! There isn't a Ferrari or Porsche in the lot1
Well done. This is the sort of thing real collectors look for. Thank you.
Love seeing oddball cars like these. For something truly weird from the world of aftermarket bodies, I recall there was a company back then that sold a fiberglass body to convert your Renault Dauphine into a gull wing coupe. I don't remember their name or if they ever actually sold any, but I do remember seeing an ad for them.
