Automotive Masterpieces' New Garages

We are the pro tempore custodians of the cars we have at our disposal: they are a witness we have received and, in turn, we pass them on to others in new garages.

Therefore, we offer a consultancy service, supporting collectors when they decide to sell some pieces or buy others.
Each negotiation is different and we support the collector in the right search or sale/purchase strategy.
We specialize in looking for rare cars, often already on the list of Automotive Masterpieces and interesting exchanges or sales can occur.
We intervene in private negotiation transactions, as well as in auction sales/purchases.
The following cars were brokered directly or by auction on behalf of customers, in acquisition or sale.
