In October, Bonham’s Power by BMW sale to be held in Munich has a range of treasures on its fleet. Adding glitz and tradition is a rare 1958 BMW Abbate V8 speedboat estimated to get between $285,100 and $448,000. Racing driver built it, and engineer Helm Gloeckler introduced the idea of using a BMW engine for a speedboat and tied up with Giulio Abbate, a renowned Italian boatbuilding personality. The boat is a stunning concoction of brilliant Italian styles and German motor technology.
