There is a growing global interest in classic cars and collectors cars.
Finarte’s Automotive Department was re-opened in 2017, fifty years after the first Finarte’s auction of cars and automobilia.

AUTOMOTIVE MASTERPIECES, a digital archive and a publisher specialised in historical research, supports the Department.

In 2018 Finarte developed its first thematic auction, dedicated to the Mille Miglia cars, 1000 FINARTE. In May 2018, 1000 Finarte achieved three world records, therefore gaining a leadership position in the Italian automotive sector.

The Automotive Department will be organising its second auction of classic cars on May 13th, 2019, one day prior to the start of the Mille Miglia Race on May 15, at the Mille Miglia Museum in Brescia.

The department for this auction is collecting automobilia and cars that fall into the following categories:

  1. cars whose chassis serial number ran the Mille Miglia speed race (1927/1957);
  2. vehicles whose chassis serial number ran one of the Mille Miglia speed race/regularity tests (1958, 1959, 1961);
  3. vehicles whose chassis serial number ran one of Mille Miglia’s historical re-enactment (1968, 1971, 1972, 1973 and 1977 to present);
  4. cars whose chassis serial number ran other events recognised by the Mille Miglia organisation in Brescia (California Mille – USA; The Mille Miglia Festival – Japan, and so forth);
  5. car models eligible to take part in the Mille Miglia according to the Mille Miglia 2018’s eligibility criteria;
  6. cars whose chassis serial number ran the Mille Miglia Rally (since 1977);
  7. cars that participated in the Ferrari Tribute or the Mercedes-Benz Challenge or are eligible for these events;
  8. cars belonging to limited series manufactured under the Mille Miglia brand (Alfa Romeo Spider, BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLR, and so forth)
  9. celebratory Watches of the Mille Miglia;
  10. automotive objects (posters, documents, photographs, paintings, and so forth) relating to the Mille Miglia’s universe.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Zagato in 2019, the Department of Automotive has decided to dedicate a section of the upcoming auction to the famous Milanese brand, strongly linked to the world of the Mille Miglia race.

A car auction, planned for the week of the “most beautiful race in the world,” represents for the collectors an incredibly emotional moment and for Finarte an excellent showcase and a unique opportunity to enhance the value of the auctioned cars.
