Review: On February 3, 2022, the hammer fell in Paris for the Mercedes C 63 AMG with 457 hp, which Michael Schumacher drove in 2010. The highest bid was only 27,600 euros – a ridiculous price. Experts have speculated on a retail price of over 100,000 euros ($110,000), but nothing has worked.
The main reason may be that Schumacher never officially owned the C 63, as a station wagon with a 6.2 liter V8 was given to him by his employer at the time as a company car, so it was registered with Mercedes-Benz AG.

Schumacher owned a Ferrari from 2009 to 2012

Things are different with the Ferrari California. Not only was Michael Schumacher himself involved in the development of the Ferrari California, which will be available from 2009, he also indulged himself with copies for his personal collection.

The stripes are a rare addition to the Ferrari California. Hand-painted elements are often ordered for special models such as the 458 Speciale and 488 Pista.

According to the dealer “Boutsen Classic Cars”, Michael owned California from 2009 to 2012. Unlike the paint of his race car at the time, the seven-time Formula 1 world champion decided not to paint California in “Rosso Corsa”, but in the colors “Argento Nurburgring”. , precious silver.

To give this car a personal touch, Schumacher ordered “Grigio Ferro” stripes (a rare choice for California) and a gray interior with white stitching. The headrest is also decorated with the Michael Schumacher logo.

The Michael Schumacher logo is embroidered on the headrest. Schumacher is said to have owned a Ferrari between 2009 and 2012.


Under the hood of the Californian is a naturally aspirated 4.3 liter V8 engine with 460 hp, which accelerates the convertible 1,765 kg folding roof to 310 km/h. It is not known how many Ferrari owners after Schumacher. The fact is: it is now being offered in Switzerland with a range of 15,643 kilometers.

How much does California cost?

Dealers write “on demand” for prices, which leaves plenty of room for speculation. Used Ferrari California starts in Germany for under 100,000 euros. Copies with a distance of less than 20,000 kilometers are rare and cost from 125,000 euros and up.

If you consider that this Ferrari is said to be one of the most successful drivers of all time, the price would probably be much higher!
