Introducing the Ceres 001 Founders Edition Cartainers, a mobile display cabinet tailored for vehicles that warrant an extra layer of pampering.
Certain automobiles prove too costly for everyday use. For instance, the scarcity of 1960s Ferraris means their value as investment assets far surpasses their appeal on the road or track. Short of treating these vehicles like museum artifacts, collectors and owners seek a solution that seamlessly merges protective care with an elegant showcase.
While we’ve previously featured avant-garde garages and storage solutions like Garage Deluxe’s underground supercar haven, Cartainers distinguish themselves. The eponymous Kentucky-based company unveiled the Ceres 001 Founders Edition Cartainers at this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, limiting production to 50 units priced at $60,000. This offering caters not only to enthusiasts who prioritize static, climate-controlled displays for their cherished automobiles but also to those requiring a means of transportation for these vehicles.
Why Choose a Cartainers?
The Ceres 001 is not merely a display case but a vitrine designed explicitly for secure global transport. Cartainers’ president, Sarah Blasi, articulates their goal with the new Ceres 001 Founders Edition: “to provide an incredible jewel-box showcase made for fine automobiles that is just as brilliant as the car inside on display.”
Beyond being impeccably lit and temperature-controlled, the Ceres 001 can be monitored via GPS and boasts an array of security cameras and sensors to safeguard the precious cargo.
Weighing a substantial 2,200kg, each unit is crafted from a blend of steel, 10mm-thick polycarbonate, and aluminum, featuring customizable components that can be color-matched to the vehicle within. The shipping chassis seamlessly integrates into the E Track cargo control system, and tracking your car’s location is conveniently accessible through an iPhone app. The onboard power ensures three days of remote security functions. Whether transporting a sports car from a concours to a festival or moving an automotive asset from a Freeport to an auction room, Cartainers believe they have you covered.
