A total of 25 Ferraris were sold for a combined price of €4.5 million during Auctionata's online auction
A 1991 Ferrari F40 and a 1977 512 BB were among the big hitters at Auctionata’s ‘Ferrari Only’ sale - the first of its kind in the German auction house’s history.
The F40 sold for €1.1 million in the live-streamed sale last weekend (26 September), breaking the record price paid for a 1991 example, while the 512 BB crossed the auction block for €434,264 in Munich.
The sale was the highest grossing auction in Auctionata’s history, with an overall result of €4.5 million being achieved from an assortment of 25 cars from Maranello.
The F40 was the highest priced car of the evening, with the winning bidder coming via the floor at the auction in Germany. Built in 1991, the car is one of the later models built by Ferrari, prior the end of the famous car’s production run in 1992. Its sale last weekend also marks the highest price ever achieved for a car by Auctionata.
Alongside the F40 in drawing the deepest breaths was a 1977 512 BB, which eventually sold for just shy of €435,000. The 512 BB was released in 1976 as an update to the 365 GT4 BB, with the 4.9-litre 12 cylinder engine enlarged to 4942cc, and a dual-plate clutch added to handle the extra torque among the big changes.
Other winners on the night include a 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale, which with an estimated price of €240,000, exceeded expectations by selling for €373,184, while a 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO sold for just short of €600k.
Wolfgang Jochum, Head of the Classic Cars department at Auctionata said: ‘The successful outcome of our first ‘Ferrari Only’ auction shows that we have established ourselves in the top segment of luxury cars and that we have reached a new milestone in the history of Auctionata.’
