Among the lots at Sotheby’s (www.sothebys.com) May 23 auction at the Ferrari facility in Maranello, Italy, will be an F2004 that Michael Schumacher drove to victory five times during the 2004 Formula One circuit. The offering will mark the first time a car from the most recent F/1 season has been auctioned, and Sotheby’s estimates that the vehicle could command as much as $2 million. Rivaling the Schumacher car for bidders’ attention will be a 1958 Ferrari 412 S that was raced by Phil Hill and carries a presale estimate of more than $10 million. The auction also will include various classic and modern Maseratis, most notably the MC12 that in 2004 won the marque’s first championship race in 37 years. The car is expected to sell for at least $1.5 million.
