Fielding IndyCar champions, Mario and Michael Andretti, Nigel Mansell, Cristiano da Matta, and Sébastien Bourdais, as well as many other drivers including Christian Fittipaldi, Graham Rahal, and Oriol Servià. The team founded by Carl Haas and Paul Newman dominated both the CART and Champ Car series between 1983 and 2011, and forever changed the history of motorsport. Now, an international auction of their treasured, race-proven chassis and many artifacts from their history is planned.
Highlights of the legendary collection include multiple cars driven by Mario and Michael Andretti including a 1984 Lola-Cosworth T800 and a 1991 Lola-Chevrolet T91/00, both championship-winning cars. Alongside the Andretti-driven racing machines are cars piloted by the iconic Nigel Mansell. While driving a 1993 Lola-Cosworth Ford T93/00, Nigel Mansell became the only person in history to have won back-to-back championships in Formula 1 and IndyCar series in the same year.
