A prototype, desirable classic cars, and powerful bikes

Auctionata presents auction highlights at MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin

On Saturday, October 8, 2016, the auctioneer’s hammer will be wielded again during the MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin classic car trade fair. In cooperation with the Berlin-based online auction platform Auctionata, a live auction of a classic car and bike auction will be broadcast at the fair, will make the hearts of collectors of motorised four and two-wheelers beat faster and faster. The top highlight is a 1992 prototype of the Porsche Carrera 964 Speedster. Desirable classic cars will also be coming under the hammer, among them a 1971 Rolls Royce Shadow Corniche convertible, a legendary and luxurious 5-seater luxury convertible once owned by the famous American singer Dionne Warwick, a 1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal, as well as a Ferrari 512 BB and a Porsche 911 “Oil Klapper”. Since the concept for the trade fair has been broadened to include classic motorcycles, Auctionata will also be auctioning an interesting cross-section from motor scooters to motorcycles, such as a Honda CBX 1000 Super Sport. The auction will be broadcast online in Hall 16 as well as worldwide. An expert team from Auctionata will be on hand to assist local bidders.

Auctionata stands for the auctioneering format for the 21st century, where bidders are able to take part via a live stream and can even use an iPhone app. This gives interested viewers from all over the world the opportunity to follow the auction and bid for premium classic cars right at home or while on the move. The auction, which will be broadcast live at MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin on October 8 at 2 p.m., can also be seen worldwide on the live stream at www.auctionata.com. The auctioned four and two-wheelers represent a cross-section of motoring history.
Anecdote about the highlight of the auction: The Porsche Carrera 964 Speedster with RS configuration does not have a “birth certificate” since it is a prototype, and Porsche only delivers series production cars with such a document. This fact will certainly not diminish the value of this motoring jewel.

Bidders, interested parties and visitors will be able to take a close look at the greatest treasures on auction in the historic halls of the Berlin ExpoCenter (Hall 16) when MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin opens its doors on October 6, 2016.
