1911 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Tourer Chassis No. 1544
This 1939 chassis 85427 was one of eight 328s ordered by BMW’s English importer, H.J. Aldington, in June 1939 and one of the last 328s manufactured between 1937-1939. Six of the eight cars were ordered as rolling chassis to be bodied in England. The slab-sided bodywork was commissioned from Leacroft of Egham, Surrey by Royal Air Force Flight Lieutenant J. Richard Stoop. “Dickie” Stoop raced the car to a 6th in class, 12th place overall finish at the 24 Hours of Spa -Francorchampsin 1949 with Peter Wilson as his co-driver. This appears to be Stoop’s only race in his custom-bodies Frazier-Nash BMW. What the car did after 1952 is unknown until 1988, when it was purchased at auction in London by the Rosso Bianco Collection and “preserved.” It had been restored sometime before 2006 and sold by Bonhams that year.
1960 Maserati 3500GT Vignale Spyder Chassis Number: 101505 Prototype! In 1959, the first 3500 Spyder made its debut at the Turin Auto Show. In 1960, Carrozziera Vignale introduced a 3500 spyder on a shortened chassis, a design strongly influenced by the Coupé of Touring. This extremely rare and beautiful example had an extensive restoration at great expense. The Vignale spyder is very attractive when viewed from the front, with its massive front grill and the interior dash facia is simple but very elegant. The Maserati Vignale spyder competed when new with the Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina spyder. While Ferrari was focused on performance, Maserati was more focused on creating a refined GT car. One that delivered performance while providing the creature comforts and luxury details needed when cruising the French Riviera.

Saoutchik was known for his extravagant designs, taking many risks with sweeping shapes and copious amount of chrome. The Genius of Saoutchik's design on a large chassis is demonstrated in his ability to minimize the overall scale of the car by concealing the size of the wheels as well as using painted lines to reduce the height of the cowl.

He was well known for his extravagant wealth, flamboyant lifestyle and eccentric taste. There is no wonder why he choose such a car for his stables.
