Blenheim, Ontario, CANADA — RM Sotheby’s, in partnership with Ferrari, will present an online auction, offered entirely without reserve, in celebration of Scuderia Ferrari’s milestone 1000th Grand Prix event — held in September in Mugello, Italy.
Bidding opens at 11 a.m. (ET) Dec. 7 for the Once in a Millenium sale offering 16 exclusive motorsport lots related to the race and timed to coincide with the season-ending 2020 FIA Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The sale will close at 11 a.m. (ET) Dec. 14.
Among the highlights is a unique SF1000 Formula 1 show car signed by Scuderia Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc & Sebastian Vettel. The full-scale display car wears the burgundy livery designed specifically for Scuderia Ferrari’s 1000th GP event to commemorate the 125S, the first race car designed and produced in Maranello bearing the name of the company’s founder. Scuderia Ferrari raced its first World Championship Grand Prix in Monaco on May 21, 1950.
Other signed memorabilia from the 1000th GP race includes racing gloves and suits, helmets and rear wing end plates. Also on the docket are VIP guest packages for a 2021 season race, as well as behind-the-scenes guided tours of the Ferrari factory and race team operation in Maranello.
