After twelve years of buying and selling vintage Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s, John Temerian and Jordi Ricart decided to prove to the world that the automobile is a viable and consistent alternative investment asset class. Thus, Curated was born. By trading, buying and selling only very specific cars, Curated always has an incredible selection of cars that are second to none.
“We are in the pursuit of pairing the worlds greatest automobiles with the worlds greatest collections.”
– John Temerian
Below are just a few examples of what Curated has to offer. Each are a testament to their knowledge of fine cars and their ability to find the right car, as each is of the five vehicles are spectacular. What’s more, in just five cars, there is so much diversity. On one hand you have the Bugatti EB110 supercar that was born in the early 1990’s, and then you have the ultra-performance Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series that is highly sought after. Be sure to check each of them out below to get just a taste of what they have to offer. To learn more about Curated, you can visit their website.
1994 Bugatti EB 110
Curated has just recently acquired this magnificent Bugatti EB110. It’s a three-owner car supercar that has all of the original books, keys, records and the EV110 watch that was included with the initial delivery. It features a carbon fiber chassis, four-wheel drive, quad-turbocharged V12 engine and an incredible top speed of 216 mph.
1981 BMW M1
The BMW M1 was the German automaker’s first supercar and is still regarded as one of their finest cars to date. The current owner of the car that is selling his pride and joy has been the car’s only owner for 36 years, since delivery. It comes with only 8,000 miles on the odometer and one of only 58 example produced in Dark Blue.
2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series
For the SL65 AMG Black Series, Mercedes-Benz increased the turbochargers by 12% and modified many other aspects of the car to make it a true performance car. Available at Curated is an impeccable example of this German sports car with only 10,000 miles and all books, tools, records and car cover included. It’s one of only 175 SL65 AMG Black Series cars created for the United States.
2005 Ferrari 575 Maranello
In 2002, Ferrari unveiled the 575 Maranello as an updated version of the 550 Maranello. The changes made to the car were done by Pininfarina, the iconic design car designer. This example of the 575 Maranello at Curated is a one-owner vehicle with only 1,000 original miles. It’s a true collector-quality Ferrari.
1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL AMG
For our last feature car, we have yet another one-owner car, this time it’s a 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SL AMG. The original owner added over $8,000 in AMG options and accessories. This includes the wheels, side skirts, European headlamps, telephone and an AMG spec. limited slip differential. This is one of only a few 1989 SL’s that were modified by AMG.
