There will be 80 sports cars — assorted Ferraris, Porsches, etc. — but Coys’ auction Saturday at Schloss Dyck, a 17th century castle in Germany, also will feature the 450 model-car collection assembled over 30 years by Michael Digiacomo of New York.

Offered at no reserve, the model cars come in various sizes and competition periods, including cased and hand-build examples, the auction house said.
