Creative Rides- The financial capital of South Africa plays host next month to one of the most spectacular classic car auction events on the 2022 global calendar, when more than 115 exclusive models will go under the hammer amidst a booming international collector market.

The July 2 unreserved and reserved sale, presented by Creative Rides Classic and Collectables Auctions, has been dubbed The Italian Job (after the classic 1969 Michael Caine movie) by insiders because of the astonishing collection of rare, sought-after Italian automobiles on the block.

The Italian Job

1968 Ferrari 365

1968 Ferrari 365

Leading the pack is a red 1968 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 that was designed and constructed by Pininfarina. With its low-slung fastback design, it was the first Ferrari to be equipped with standard power steering and power brakes. The 4.4-litre single-overhead-camshaft V-12 engine was fitted with three Weber carburetors, but it was the interior that made this model an ultra-luxurious performance grand tourer. The four-seater boasted plush leather, veneered panels, the last wood-rimmed steering wheel in a production Ferrari, air conditioning, a stereo and standard power windows.

The 1968 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 is one of nine Ferraris under the hammer in the Creative Rides auction.

1998 Ferrari 550 Maronalla

For those aficionados of more modern supercars, the red 1998 Ferrari 550 Maranello lot would be an inspired choice.

The 550 Maranello design was initially launched in 1996 and at the time became the first front-engine mounted two-seater Ferrari model to be released in 23 years. With a top speed of 200mph (322kph) it was and remains spectacular in both looks and performance.

1984 Alfa GTV 6-3L

1984 Alfa GTV 6-3L

One of the most hotly contested lots will be the 1984 Alfa GTV 6 3L, one of 212 ever built.

Other Italian models on Derrick’s “hot list” include:

1994 Ferrari 348 Spider

1994 Ferrari 348 Spider

A 1994 Ferrari 348 Spider, featuring a Rosso Corsa exterior and nero leather interior with nero carpets. It includes the original service book, handbook and pouch. The roof, bodywork and interior are in good condition. 

European Sophistication

German motor manufacturers are generously represented at this auction. From ultra-luxury sports cars to more modest models, there’ll be something for everyone and cars for all budgets.

Among the German models look out for Porsches, Mercedes, BMWs, VWs and even Opels.

1972 Jaguar E-Type

1972 Jaguar E-Type

Bidders also have a chance  on the MGs or an E-Type Jag, or a Rolls Royce or a Bentley.

1981 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit

Muscle Mania

A South African classic car auction would be complete without some quality V8 grunt on the block.

1958 Chevrolet Corvette

1973 Dodge Charger

More than 30 American-manufactured vehicles will go under the hammer. Collectors can look forward to bidding on Mustangs, Camaros, Dodge Chargers and Vipers, Corvettes and many others.”
