PARIS: Artcurial Motorcars will host a sale of the former collection of Giuseppe Neri, a friend of Enzo Ferrari, at its Automobilia auction on Feb 6.
The lots include a large number of objects relating to the famous Italian brand. In particular, objects directly linked to its Formula 1 activities are expected: car components, steering wheels and helmets.
Over the years, Giuseppe Neri gathered a wide range of photographs, models and various souvenirs from competitions. F1 enthusiasts will have a particularly hard time choosing their favourites as the catalogue includes drivers' helmets, including some of Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher (one of which is estimated to fetch between 20,000 and 30,000 euros), but also replicas of steering wheels, parts from the single-seater cars (fairing, engine hood, wing tips) and even engines.
Other items relating to Ferrari, ranging from a fan's collection of numerous spare parts, catalogues and user manuals, are also on the programme of this sale, as are nine watches from Breguet.
