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.
