partial View of the immense collection.
After the name “Duemila Route”, which in Italian means literally 2000 wheels, we found an impressive private collection that will go on auction composed by no less than 430 cars, 150 motorcycles, 60 ships and hundreds of bikes and items of automobilia. Programmed by RM Sotheby’s during the next Fair Autoclassica Milan 2016, this is the largest collection of sports and classic seats for sale at one time in Europe.
The only image that offers RM Sotheby’s in the description of the auction short of breath. In front of dozens of sports and luxury vehicles, we find no fewer than three copies highly collectible and desired the signature Ferrari like an F40, one of the first 365 GTB/4 Daytona, of the few copies initials that were assembled with the controversial front cover in plexiglass, and nothing less than a 275 GTB/6 C, one of the only 9 copies that were manufactured with body made from light alloy, the most desired by collectors throughout the production of the 275 GTB/4.
Only these three vehicles are enough curious people separately, but to see them headlining such a collection is simply incredible. Next to these we find a copy in Admiral Blue of the Ford GT 2005, two Bentley, an Azure and a Continental, and after these, one of 448 copies of the Ferrari 550 Barchetta Pininfarina limited edition.
Ferrari 275 GTB/6C, one of only nine copies are created.
on The other side of the picture we find several units of the firm of Maranello, a 612 Scaglietti and a 360 Modena, after which we can intuit a 360 Spider. Finally, you see the unmistakable silhouette of the Bugatti EB110, which from what we can see corresponds with the version EB110 GT, a piece very difficult to see and with a great potential of appreciation.
The rest of the room appears full of copies of the Porsche 911 and some Mercedes Class S. Precisely, the German sports early reports suggest that we can find up to 60 specimens in this collection, so that you can expect to find some rare pieces and limited series, plus a 959 and a Carrera GT.
Other units outstanding and that do not appear in the top image are a Maserati MC12, a piece that is very rare, and a Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16 v 1989 official employed by the team Lancia Rally.
Up to 60 Porsche 911 inhabit this collection, the more the Carrera GT and 959.
We will be attentive to all the news we can get from RM Sotheby’s or from the own Fair of Milan, as due to the extensive list of exemplary auction house, at the time of publishing this article, has not yet had time to prepare the final list with all its lots, and which surely will contain the specimen that may surprise more than one. The event sale is scheduled for the 25th of November, during the exhibition Autoclassica 2016.
The ownership of the collection at the moment has not been disclosed, we do not know if it will be revealed later or if its owner intends to stay in the anonymity.
