Formula 1 seven-time champ Michael Schumacher has offered up this rear wing plate from his first World Drivers’ Championship in 2000.

Ferrari Enzo 1:5 Scale Model
Incredible details make this 1:5 scale model a remarkable piece. The display model of the Ferrari Enzo is true to the limited-edition 2002 12-cylinder sports car. Measuring a little over 36-in. long the model is finished in the Enzo’s Rosso Corsa with visible engine detail, full leather interior, and detailed wheels including brake calipers, rubber tires, and exhaust pipes. Whatever you do, do not let anyone call this a toy.
BMW Tôles Froissées Art
Created by artist Natale, this piece of art is inspired by the classic BMW. The artist used the iconic BWM roundel as the centerpiece of this modern art creation.
For some of us, cars are already a work a art. French mechanically-inclined artist NYS Hervé created “Carpuraptor” simply using the carburetor as inspiration. The sculpture is 3.5 feet and includes nice details to hail the MVP of the internal combustion engine.
Ferrari 458 Engine with Stand
There may be no item sexier than this Ferrari engine. The Ferrari 458 engine is pure savagery. The 4.5-liter V-8 was able to create a jaw-dropping 9,000 rpm and 562 horsepower.
It won many awards and broke many records. The 458 was the last mid-mounted, naturally aspirated V8 used in production Ferraris. This mounted engine is perfection.
‘Body Heat: Crashing the Modern’ Installation
So, this probably won’t be a fit for everyone. But it is an interesting piece of automotive-meets-neon art. The piece features a 1973 Volvo P1800, painted aluminum, canvas, wood, film, and neon. Artist Lili Lakich worked with artist Juan Larios to create the scene. Using her own car, Lakich was inspired by the idea that the only way she’d get shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York was to literally crash her car inside.
The auction kicks off on December 8, and will also include collectors items from Steve McQueen, art from Ed Roth and Von Dutch, and of course, a fleet of dream cars.
