When you think about the most coveted items in Italian football, the one that will be auctioned off the most in the coming days is the Iai Audi A3.
The world-class racing car is set to be sold in a €1.2 billion auction at the Autosport auction in Montevideo.
This is the third time that the car has been sold in Montecatini, following the sale in 2013 and 2014.
The bidding is due to end at 9:00am local time on Wednesday.
The Audi A4 and the A5 will be sold by the same company, Iai Automotive, and this will be the third consecutive auction to go ahead for the A3, which has been in operation since 2003.
It is set for a €2.5 billion (US$2.8 billion) sale.
The A4, which will go for €1 billion, is the world’s most expensive car, but the A4s price will be significantly lower than the $1.6 billion price tag the car is expected to sell for.
As part of its agreement with Iai, the auction will be televised live on Italian television and it will also be streamed live on the ICAI’s website.
There will be several car sales in Montego, including the A6, the A7, the A8, the LMP1-class supercar and the B6, which is the successor to the A8.
A car sold by a different company in Montecito could not be used as a subject of the auction, however.
The A3 is set up in the wake of the recent scandal that has rocked the Italian sport, with a number of teams having suspended their operations.
Several teams are reportedly planning to auction their cars in Montebaccio and Turin.
Iai Automobile has said that the A2 is not available to bid on.
