- RM Sotheby’s announces three early consignments for the St Moritz auction, including a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage
Comprised of various events throughout the week, the International St. Moritz Automobile Week is compared to a combination of the Mille Miglia and the Goodwood Festival of Speed, making it a must-attend event for collectors in Europe and beyond, on the motto ‘ for everyone some”. Exciting events throughout the week include the highly acclaimed Bernina Gran Turismo , the famous race up the closed Bernina Pass, which concludes the week of events on the final day. There is also the Motorsport Rendezvous , a relaxed garden party and a relaxed Concours d’Elegance showcasing a fine selection of racing and sports cars.
Florian Seidl from ISAW AG continues: “We are very pleased that the world’s most successful auction house has teamed up with us and is setting the standard for excellent collector car auctions in the DACH region. We appreciate the enthusiasm of RMS and the partnership to work together to further develop the automobile week in St. Moritz. From speed trials to hill climbing and tours, there is something for everyone! Come along and join in the action on the track, streets and in the auction hall! It’s time to register and enjoy the highlight of the summer season in St. Moritz with us.”
1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage at St. Moritz Automobile Week
The 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage, of which only 17 left-hand drive examples were produced, is one of the most desirable cars of the David Brown era and arguably Aston Martin’s most desirable model.
Three new events are planned for 2022, which should help to make the trip to St. Moritz even more attractive. These include the Targa Poschiavo Engiadina , a two-day pre-war classic car rally through the mountains of the Swiss resort, aimed at classics too young for London-Brighton but too old for the Mille Miglia.
Also a new event is Super Stick Shift , a rally for analogue supercars from 1974 to 1995, featuring iconic models such as the Ferrari GTOs, F40 and F50, as well as the Lamborghini Countach and other stars of the era.
The third and last new item on the agenda of the International St. Moritz Automobile Week 2022 is the Mobility Forum, a podium for lectures and discussions on classic and current topics of mobility of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
