On 15 October in Geneva, Christie’s will offer a one-of-a-kind, customised 812 Superfast Ferrari, produced by Scuderia Ferrari and offered to benefit Children Action. Powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine that unleashes 800hp, the
812 Superfast is the benchmark for mid-front-engined sports
cars, delivering the
kind of thrilling top-end performance that is the exclusive
hallmark of Ferrari’s V12 heritage.
Scuderia Ferrari has chosen to present this iconic model in a unique configuration created in
collaboration with the Tailor Made department, Ferrari’s
exclusive personalisation programme. The car will come finished in Rosso F1, Ferrari’s signature
Formula 1 red, with a tricolour strip inspired by the Italian
flag and a white-backed race number painted on the bonnet
recalling the SF71H, Ferrari’s 2018 race car.
The chosen race number is 1, to celebrate the fact that the
Scuderia Ferrari has won the most number of Formula 1 Drivers’
and Constructors’ World Championship titles (31) in the history
of F1. The Scuderia Ferrari shields on the wings and carbon-fibre trim will complete its sporty
The unique interior configuration will feature leather racing
seats with black technical SuperFabric inserts; a yellow
Prancing Horse stitched on the headrests; yellow seatbelts
and a yellow rev counter. Carbon-fibre trim and a tricolour
detail painted on the central bridge complete the interior.
The car will be Ferrari Classiche-certified and its provenance
from the Tailor Made programme will be evidenced by the carbon-fibre
logo on the sillkicks.
The winning bidder will receive the keys to the 812 Superfast
in an exclusive ceremony inside the Monza circuit at the
2019 Italian Grand Prix, taking possession of the supercar
in the presence of the whole Ferrari team. The V12’s engine
will also come autographed by official Ferrari drivers.
Also offered on 15 October is a one-of-a-kind Patek Philippe
created exclusively to benefit Children Action: the first
and only titanium version of the Ref. 5524 Calatrava PilotTravel Time. Launched in 2015, the Ref. 5524 Calatrava Pilot Travel Time
— featuring a second time zone with locally linked date display
— reflects Patek Philippe’s tradition in aviators’ watches.
The exclusive Ref. 5524T-010 features a titanium case (a metal only rarely used for Patek Philippe
timepieces) and a black dial. The sapphire-crystal
case back exposes the self-winding calibre 324 S C FUS and
bears the inscription ‘Children Action 2018’. The watch will be delivered in a sealed presentation box, with
a Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin.
