Chassis no. W09112218PWJ02001. Arctic Silver over blue and black leather. Mid-engine M-B 6-litre V12, 400+hp, fuel injection, 6-speed modified RUF transaxle, periscope rear view mirror, Sparco leather rim steering wheel, Blaupunkt Bremen cassette stereo, BBS modular wheels, Michelin tires, adjustable rear spoiler, air conditioning. – One-off tube frame supercar with top hinged doors and engine compartment covers with a checkered but known history and only 10,256 km from new. Restored by the builder to as-built 1993 configuration. Street licensed. Shows some age and use but in reasonably good condition throughout.

Evaluation: One-off tube frame supercar with top hinged doors and engine compartment covers with a checkered but known history and only 10,256 km (6373 miles) from new. Restored by the builder to as-built 1993 configuration. Street licensed. Shows some age and use but in reasonably good condition throughout.

Bottom Line: There are no “comparables” for the one-off Commendatore 112i, nor even for the more prolific Imperator 108i (20 built). The bidders saw it as something extremely special, unusual for a one-off by a relatively unknown specialist builder, and rocketed it right through the estimate range to a hammer bid more than 50 percent over the high estimate. It is pointless to speculate on the bidders’ motives and sufficient to say only that this is a very expensive car from an unknown constructor.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
