Mercedes CEO Toto Wolff is an enigmatic presence in the F1 paddock. Since taking over as Team Principal in 2014, the Austrian has led the team to seven back-to-back championship victories.

However, like every individual, Wolff has interests outside of F1, one of which is his car collection. The 49-year-old will be selling some of those cars, which noted supercar specialist Tom Hartley Junior posted on Instagram.

The Mercedes Team Principal is enduring one of the toughest title defenses in his F1 career. Although their dominance in the sport over the past seven years is incredible, they don’t look quite the same team this year. With Red Bull posing a bigger threat to their title defense than in recent years, the Austrian needs to motivate his team in order to stay in the hunt for their eighth consecutive world title.

While he faces a tough season in the paddock, he made time to tend to his car collection off-track. The Austrian owns quite a few cars that the world would envy. Wolff will sell some of those cars through Briton Tom Hartley Junior, who is an expert in selling supercars.

The Briton shared a recent post outlining the cars which Wolff is selling. In his post, Hartley outlined the Austrian’s busy schedule doesn’t allow him to drive these cars anymore, while putting in a witty line for owning Ferrari cars.

According to the Briton, Wolff is selling a Ferrari Enzo which has clocked just over 2,000kms along with a LaFerrari Aperta, which, he claims, is as good as new. Funnily enough, Wolff bought the Ferrari Enzo from Hartley Junior himself in 2014.

In addition to that, the Briton mentioned Wolff was one of the four development drivers for the Black Series, which shows how attached the Austrian is to this car.

Although Hartley Junior is yet to reveal the price of these cars, one can expect a sizeable price tag running into the millions.
