It’s almost impossible not to love the automotive design hailed from Italy. From the biggest automakers to the equally renowned independent design studios, these companies have shaped endless vehicles that are synonymous with beauty and quality. In Aste Bolaffi’s “Classic Motor Vehicles: Youngtimers and Memorabilia” auction taking place in Turin on 15 November, the auction house is offering over 30 classic cars plus plenty of rarely seen design models and drawings.
There are a few rare Fiats, from a 1969 Dino coupe 2000, Gianni Agnelli’s Panda 4×4 to a more recent, one-off Fiat 500 “Capri” Spiaggina display that is drivable. For Lancia fans, the 1970 Lancia Fulvia HF Fanalone Rallye and the 1992 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Martini 5 are something joyous to see. A 1:1 scale model coming from Carrozzeria Castagna is also among the 97 lots. Named Rossellini after the great director, the design was a one-off proposal for Ferrari in 2003 but it didn’t make it into production. For those just what something to decorate their home or office space, the original drawings from Bertone, Pininfarina, Zagato and more just reflects how some of the iconic automotive designs come alive. The full catalogue of this action can be found on Aste Bolaffi’s website.
