It all began in 1947 with the launch of the 125 S, Ferrari’s very first car that carries the Ferrari badge, who made its track debut at the Piacenza Circuit. Driven by Franco Cortese, the 125 S went on to win the Rome Grand Prix, completing the 40 laps and the 137km of the race at an average speed of 88.5km/h – the first of six victories in 1947 alone.
To mark Ferrari’s 70th anniversary of icon Technological excellence and performance, it has launch LaFerrari Aperta, the limited-edition special series model and the spider version of the acclaimed LaFerrari supercar. It is equipped with the same hybrid power unit as the coupé: an 800 cv 6,262cc V12 engine (specific power output of 128 cv/l, compression ratio 13.5:1) coupled with a 120 kW electric motor for a total power output of a 963 cv.
It’s very first test drive on the streets of Maranello, Italy marked the start of modern Ferrari history that grew from the then-modest factory into one of the greatest internationally-renowned ‘Made in Italy’ icons.
Cactus de Cartier is Cartier’s newest and free-spirited collection that indulges in non-spiky yet uncompromising sculptural pieces that may now be observed and touched up close. Seductive with a luscious blend of the sometimes gentle, sometimes cruel pleasure of duality, Cartier has again redefined jewellery: the geometry, cut-outs and proportions of this subliminal spiky collection revealing three unexpected designs. It is all about plant shapes dotted with zesty, succulent gemstone flowers in emerald, chrysoprase or carnelian; the generous volumes with geometric structures, gold domes illuminated by precious dewdrops, corollas of radiant and fresh faceted lapis or diamonds; and lastly the REBELLIOUS FLOWER – the audacious beauties adorned with unexpected curves, undulating with ripples and twists and unconfined movement. At the jeweller’s touch, the gold comes to life with twisting contours, open work and precious, pearly droplets.
RM Sotheby’s 2017 auction is featuring one of the most influenctial pre-war racing cars – a historic Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3. As the first major European classic car event of the new year, Rétromobile week in February 2017 – held at the Place Vauban in Paris – will also host a number of high-profile classic car auctions. And you have guessed right, its highlight is a 1934 Alfa Romeo Tipo B P3.
The post-war, 1954 Osca MT4 1500, once a participant of the minacious Carrera Panamericana – has also gone under the hammer and was predicted to fall somewhere between €975,000- €1,175,000. This specific example boasted cutting-edge technology, being the first twin ignition 1500 to roll off the Bologna production line.
The P3 represented a shift in design emphasis for period Grand Prix cars, adopting the narrower ‘slipper’ bodystyle dispensing of the second seat for ride-in mechanics to shave weight. The open-wheeled racer claimed victory on home soil at Monza, followed by a brace of podium lock-outs at the French and German Gran Prixs during the 1931 season.
2017 年 RM Sotheby’s 集中火力的汽车拍卖会，其中一辆最具影响力的战前赛车 -历史悠久的阿尔法罗密欧 (Alfa Romeo) Tipo B P3 将是焦点之一。而作为新一年欧洲经典车型的首个主要活动，Rétromobile week 在巴黎沃邦广场 (Place Vauban) 举行，也具备一些高格调经典汽车拍卖。而且你猜对了，它的亮点是1934年阿尔法罗密欧 Tipo B P3。
直至战后，1954 Osca MT4 1500 曾经是墨西哥经典 Carrera Panamericana 比赛的无敌参加者，报价是在97万5000到117万5000欧元之间。这一特殊的例子展示了尖端技术，也是首个在博洛尼亚生产线上生产的第一个双点火装置1500。
