One of Michael Schumacher’s most successful F1 Ferraris is being offered for sale during Sotheby’s Luxury Week in Geneva on 9 November. Schumacher campaigned the F2003 GA throughout 2003, notching up five victories and securing his sixth World Championship along the way. Estimated to fetch CHF7,500,000 – 9,500,000, chassis 229 comes with Ferrari Classiche Certification and has only covered 148 miles since being overhauled earlier this year at Ferrari’s F1 Clienti department in Maranello.
The year’s Milano AutoClassica will see auctions hosted by Bonhams and Wannenes, with Bonhams first away on 18 November. Home-grown machinery heads their catalogue with an unused 2022 Lamborghini Aventador LP 780-4 Ultimae Roadster – the final incarnation of its flagship model – listed at €1,100,000 – 1,400,000, and a 160-km 2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster LP 770-4, loaded with €168,000 in 'Ad Personam' options (estimate €900,000 – 1,100,000). The rare 1969 Iso Grifo S, one of only 13 factory-built Targas, was discovered by the consignor in barn-find condition some 15 years ago and has seen little use since its exacting restoration (estimate €650,000 – 750,000).
Ferraris lock out Wannenes’ top-three, a 45,000km 2002 575M with a Fiorano Handling Pack and an ultra-desirable manual gearbox is catalogued at €250,000 – 350,000; a 1969 365 GT 2+2 in single-family ownership since new, with 66,000km and presented in its original preserved and unrestored state, is €160,000 – 260,000; while a recently-serviced 45,000-km 1992 512 TR carries a guide of €150,000 – 250,000.
RM Sotheby’s is set to run its inaugural Munich sale at Motorworld on 26 November, among the 67-car roster are 25 BMWs from the single-owner Bavarian Legends Collection – all requiring recommissioning following static display as part of a museum exhibition. Highlights include a matching-numbers 1958 507 Series II (estimate €1,600,000 – 2,000,000); a 1980 M1 first owned by Jochen Neerpasch, the head of BMW Motorsport (estimate €575,000 – 725,000); and a 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL Batmobile, the final example of the 57 second-series cars built (estimate €180,000 – 220,000).
