Auctionata will hold the first ‘livestream’ Ferrari-only sale on September 26, 2015. The inaugural event will feature 27 examples from the Maranello-based marque streamed live from two separate locations simultaneously through a split-screen broadcast. Auctionata cooperated with Munich-based Ferrari specialist, Schaltkulisse, to help in the curation of the auction.
“We are proud to have an experienced partner to support us in the curation of this auction. With their outstanding expertise in the Ferrari market, and their excellent international network, we were able to obtain some highly sought after cars from private collections for this auction,” explained Wolfgang Jochum, Head of the Classic Cars Department at Auctionata.
The event will feature Ferrari sports cars from the 1960s to the their very most modern sports and racing cars. Among the offerings available, a restored 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/2 Short Nose highlights the event, as well as a Michael Schumacher-driven 1997 Ferrari F310B Formula One car.
The Ferrari 275 GTB is one of approximately 240 models produced in the original design of the 275 GTB, with a short nose by Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina. It comes in fully restored condition and with the certification of Ferrari Classiche from 2009, which attests the authenticity of chassis, engine, body and transmission. None of these components have been replaced. The body and interior were completely restored by the AutoSport di Bacchelli e Villa in Bastiglia, while the engine overhaul was carried out by GipiMotor in Evere, Belgium. The 275 GTB is painted dark red, which was included in the official Ferrari-color palette from 1964 to 1967. The starting price is €1,200,000.
Another model in this auction is a Formula One car, driven by the most successful Formula One champion of all time, Michael Schumacher. With this Ferrari F310B, Schumacher won the Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka, and drove in the final race in Jerez, Spain, in 1997. This piece of Formula One history will enter the auction with a starting price of €650,000.
Unique models such as a Sbarro P4, which was exhibited at the Geneva Motor Show in the 1980s, several limited lightweight cars such as a 599 GTO, a 458 Speciale and a Scuderia Spider 16M will also highlight the event. Other offerings for the Auctionata Ferrari-only online auction include:
