The 30-hour auction took up over 200,000 square foot of exhibition space – the equivalent of 4 football fields or 71 tennis courts – and involved just under 100 transport trucks to Milan. 5,000 people attended and amongst them were bidders from 57 countries. Interestingly, 50% of bidders were under the age of 50 and in spite of 25,000 catalogues being printed, 25% of participants bid online.

 

With everything from a 1965 Mercedes-Benz 600 SWB sedan (£66,700 or $83,100 or €78,400 or درهم‎‎305,200) to a 1973 Porsche 911 S 2.4 (£61,900 or $77,200 or €72,800 or درهم‎‎283,400) that was presented without wheels, there was something for everyone.
