    Thank you! The color is Bordeaux. I think it looks even better in person. Yes, this car is another masterpiece of Bertone's Marcello Gandini.

    Here is a video of him.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKFu5l_G9Wc

    Approximately 3 weeks. They will be taking photos and documenting the car first. I will post a link here. Thank you everyone for all of the interest. I'm looking forward to working with Bonhams.

    Cool we might be there. Headed to the tailgate show in Vegas then there. Seems I heard someone say one of the auctions is not the same weekend as the other big auctions?

    Damn that sucks I was hoping it would fly under the radar! Just left the Biltmore and Stayed at the Westin last week for CFP. Loved the area, Might be back. There are two R5s there, this being the better. It will be interesting.
