Huge Ducati auction at Monaco Grand Prix
25 January 2012 09:48
One of the world’s largest collections of classic Ducatis, comprising over 100 bikes, is to be sold at auction.
The collection includes a 1970 Ducati 450 Desmo 'Corsa', which was on display in the Ducati Museum until recently and an ex-race 1974 Ducati 750 SS.
They all belong to Carlo Saltarelli, an ex-Ducati factory test rider and Ducati dealer who has been carefully amassing the collection for over 30 years.
The bikes are to be sold at the prestigious RM Auction at the Monaco Grand Prix in May.
Chairman of Ducati Motor Holding, Gabriele del Torchio, says: "We are delighted that such a prestigious auction house as RM Auctions will be auctioning the Saltarelli collection – a piece of Ducati history.
"I am also proud to report that, to complete the event, we will offer some very special bikes, directly from the Ducati Corse team. This unique sale will allow collectors to be able to obtain some models from Ducati's history”.
