Padova Finarte, the new upcoming auction of the Automotive Department

From Fangio's GT Maserati to the British Police MG, the cars will be on sale on Friday 25 October at the "Auto e Moto d'Epoca" fair.

Porsche 911 S Targa SWB Soft Window del 1968 Chassis no. 11850424 e una Porsche 911 (991.2) Targa 4S del 2018 – gemella al telaio no. 11850424


After the two 1000 FINARTE 2018 and 2019 at the Mille Miglia Museum in Brescia – two thematic auctions dedicated to the cars linked to the world of Brescia’s most celebrated race – Finarte is presenting next fall, an auction dedicated to a broader selection of cars.

The upcoming auction includes a wide variety of cars, all rare and exclusive, as rarity and exclusivity are the two guidelines of Finarte’s Automotive department.

The selection includes cars of different price ranges, always unique, and enriched by historical investigation. The cars at auction are going to fascinate and attract even the vast and prepared public of the Fiera di Padova. The auction will be held on the occasion of Auto e Moto d’Epoca, on Friday 25th of October 2019.

Among the gems featured in the catalogue, there is indeed the barn find 1961 Maserati 3500 G.T. (Touring) chassis no. AM101*1714*, drove by Juan Manuel Fangio during his sojourns in Italy as an everyday road car, and, informally, to verify its strengths and weaknesses on behalf of Maserati’s technicians. Among the pieces of evi-dence, an autograph letter signed by Fangio. A page of history to bring back to its original splendour.

The Fiat-Abarth 750 Spyder (Zagato) is unique. It is believed to be the car presented at the 1958 Salone Internazionale dell’Automobile di Torino. First of only three known cars and the only one with streamlined fins. Beautiful, it can be perfect again after careful restoration, ready to shine in the most significant events – race competitions and prestigious concourse d’elegance.

At auction also a “world premiere,” the first implementation of the project ID | EM “Twin Works,” a pair of Porsche cars that are twins but different: a 911 old-timer, restored to perfection and an equivalent modern 911, tailored, with matching livery and details with the first one.

The lot ID | EM “Twin Works” is composed, in detail, by a 1968 Porsche 911 S Targa SWB Soft Window, Chassis no. 11850424 and a 2018 Porsche 911 (991.2), Targa 4S – twin of the chassis no. 11850424. Both cars present a light ivory livery and red interiors.

At auction also a small but great Italian masterpiece: a 1949 Fiat 1100 S Berlinetta (Pinin Farina), chassis no. 500336, matching numbers. This Fiat 1100 is a very rare car: one of seven surviving specimens, it is eligible for the most outstanding vintage car competitions (in which this model has been a protagonist for many years) and the principal concourse d’elegance: from the Mille Miglia to Villa d’Este.

The auction features two other classic Porsche cars, generally unfindable in these conditions. A 1955 Porsche 1500 Super Speedster (Reutter), chassis no. 80544, with an ivory external livery and a red interior, impeccable and delightful to drive with its 70 hp engine, for pure pleasure or in the main races. A 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7, chassis no. 9115600078: one of the best preserved specimens, presenting the old square black plate and painted in a bright green colour – all original. With impressive performances and at the same time extremely easy to drive. These can be indeed two good investments, of guaranteed revaluation.

To conclude this brief overview, a pre-war car, agile and fast, fun to drive and rare, the forerunner of the “Eng-lish roadster”: 1939 MG TB, chassis no. TB048. The story of this car is quite peculiar as it was purchased shortly before the war, by the Kent Police department, presumably serving as a patrol car.

Many are the other cars already at auction or whose participation is being defined.

Padua’s trade-show is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after. We are now inviting consignments: Finarte’s automotive experts are available for free and confidential evaluations of single cars and entire collections.
