Virtually No-Mileage Classic Ferrari and Alfa go Up for Auction
It’s the dream of many a motorhead to one day own a classic car with barely a tick of mileage on the odometer. It’s a feeling akin to waking up on Christmas morning and unwrapping the gift you’ve wanted all your life, albeit a very expensive gift. But one or two lucky bidders will get the chance to add a pair of extremely low mileage Italian sports cars to their collections – a 1991 Alfa Romeo SZ and Ferrari Mondial t – when they cross the Silverstone Auction block in February.

The duo of Italian thoroughbreds, with a combined odoometer reading of just 1,799 miles, belong to Dutch collector Chris Dijkhuis, who has owned both since new. We don’t know Mr. Dijkhuis on a personal level, but considering the exquisite care he’s afforded to this pair, he must be a massive petrolhead.
The stunning Alfa Romeo SZ (or ‘Sprint Zagato’), the fresher of the two with only 502 miles on the clock, is presented in what can only be described as new condition. Alfa Romeo launched the SZ as part of a partnership with coachbuilder Zagato. Between 1989 and 1991, a total of 1,036 SZs rolled off the production line – all in left-hand drive and all equipped with Alfa’s brilliant 3.0-liter V6. According to the listing, the barely driven car includes its original invoice, leather book pack, and even contains its Alfa overmats … still in their original packaging.

This ’91 Ferrari Mondial time capsule offers a few more miles, but V8 performance to boot. The Mondial t debuted in 1989 as the nameplate’s last hurrah, donning a longitudinally mounted 3.4-liter engine and a transverse gearbox. Handling improved over its previous generations and power bumped up to 300 horsepower.
The Mondial isn’t exactly a rare bird, but you won’t find many with as few miles as this one.
