1965 GTB and ex-Schumacher F310B Formula 1 racer among 28 Ferraris to be sold on the online auction
Auctionata has announced its first ‘Ferrari only’ online auction, including a number of rare classics. Headlining the auction is a 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/2 Short Nose and an ex-Michael Schumacher F310B, as raced in the 1997 Formula One season.
The auction is the first of its kind for Auctionata, and will be live streamed from two separate locations for the first time in online auction history. It will take place on September 26.
The 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB is one of 240 built, with short nose variations having been modelled by Battista ‘Pinin’ Farina. This car is one of Ferrari’s iconic ‘60s machines. It comes in fully-restored condition and with Ferrari Classiche certification from 2009. The chassis, engine, body and transmission remain entirely original, whilst the body and interior have been completely restored. The starting price for the GTB will be €1,200,000, although it’s estimated to sell for €2,400,000-€2,800,000
Another outstanding model in this auction is the Ferrari F310B, as raced by Michael Schumacher. The seven-time world champion won the Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka, and drove in the legendary final race in Jerez, Spain, in 1997. This piece of Formula 1 history will enter the auction with a starting price of €650,000.
Elsewhere in the auction lies a 1977 Ferrari 512 BB (€200,000), 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, a Scuderia Spider 16M, and iconic sports cars such as the F40, F50, and the track-only FXX.
