Forty jaw-dropping models. One day. And a chance to take home a dream.
That’s the promise of the Keno Brothers (of Antique Roadshow fame), here to rattle the cage of every car collector in the country with “Rolling Sculpture,” their first classic "automobilia" auction, going down this Thursday at Skylight Clarkson Square in NYC (you can also place bids online here).
The auction features an impressive and diverse assortment of vintage wheels, complete with each car’s history and meticulously detailed specs, including a virtual tour and real-time tracking of the live event for each bidder and consignor.
The auction will preview November 18th in NYC, along with an evening symposium on the state of dream-car acquisition: "At the Crossroads of Art, Engineering and Technology: The Many Facets of Historic Automobiles." Bidding begins at 3 PM sharp on November 19th.
Below: five of the most covetable steeds that'll hit the block.
1967 Bizzarrini Strada 5300
A composition of Giotta Bizzarrini, a Ferrari alum and one of the great Italian race-car engineers of the '50s and '60s.
1969 Ferrari 365 GTB4
An iconic Chinetti GT that defined an era. She’s touted as the “automotive equivalent of Sophia Loren.”
1963 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III
One of only 27 models of its kind, this Rolls epitomizes the smooth lines and bold details of mid-century luxury auto design.
1965 Aston Martin DB5
The ‘65 Aston Martin is James Bond’s go-to for a very apparent reason: it’s polished, masculine and hard to acquire.
1931 Bentley 4 Liter Tourer
One of twelve in existence. This is owning a piece of automobile history.
