Described as “an exciting group of rare French and Italian cars”, the Sárragga Collection is to be presented in Comporta and will feature a mix of desirable roadsters by Alfa Romeo and Lancia, among rare Alpine and Willys models alongside already announced Mercedes-Benz and Porsches.

Paul Darvill, Car Specialist, RM Sotheby’s, comments: “These French and Italian rarities are great examples of just how diverse the Sáragga Collection is, with many ultra-rare and seldom seen cars offered for sale alongside a long list of perfectly usable and desirable classic cars. We are sure that the Sáragga Collection will appeal not only to seasoned buyers but also those looking to enter the classic car market for the first time, and this stunning Portuguese beach location is the ideal setting to enjoy this auction.”

The Sáragga Collection calls the small, picturesque town of Alcácer do Sal home, just minutes from the seaside region of Comporta, which has quickly become one of the most fashionable and stylish resorts in Europe. The region offers the perfect setting for a warm weekend away in Portugal this autumn, with a number of luxury hotels and restaurants nearby, and just an hour’s drive from Lisbon International Airport. The Sáragga Collection reflects the discerning and eclectic personal tastes of its owner, with many cars combining broad desirability with strong Portuguese provenance and history. The collection comprises over 130 cars to include pre-war greats, exclusive Porsche models, American classics of all eras, and some rare and diminutive microcar gems. Values within the collection range from as little as €10,000 through to €800,000.
