For those unfamiliar, a “homologation” vehicle is typically the production version of a race car made purchasable to the general public, often required by the governing bodies of racing series. The purpose is, in part, to help standardize the vehicles and level the playing field so that carmakers don’t simply create one-offs to dominate the race track. It also gives racing fans the rare opportunity to own an analog of their favorite cars. Now, a collection of six of the best homologated rally cars of all time is headed to the RM Sotheby’s auction block.
Set to hit the block in Arizona starting on January 22nd, 2021, these vehicles represent some of the most formidable rally champions in history — including a 1983 Audi Quattro, 1972 Lancia Fulvia Coupe 1.6 HF, 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC AMG 6.0 ‘Wide-body,’ 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II, 1990 BMW M3 Sport Evolution, and a highly-coveted 1995 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione II. With expected prices ranging from as little as $40,000 to as high as $225,000, this is one of the best chances ever to own a vehicle of this pedigree — if you’re willing to go toe-to-toe with other bidders, that is.
