Ferrari draws on its heritage for design inspiration and, sometimes, model names. That’s why there were three different Ferrari GTO models over a half century period. While not intended as a racecar like the legendary 250 GTO and later 288 GTO before the 2011 599 GTO was developed from an experimental track car program, called 599 XX. Ferrari built just 599 of these later GTOs, with 125 coming to the U.S. Gooding & Company is offering one of these rare machines at its Amelia Island auction, with a pre-sale estimate of $800K-$1M.

Could you imagine referring to a modern high-end luxury grand tourer as “Queen Mother” today? It happened to Ferrari 55 years ago with its 365 GT 2+2. After testing the model in 1969, Road & Track magazine called the car “The Queen Mother of Ferraris.” Ferrari buffs embraced the nickname for this car and use it to this day. RM Sotheby’s is offering one of the 800 built at its Miami auction March 1-2, with a pre-sale estimate of $225K-$275K.

Mercedes-Benz, through its Mercedes-AMG performance division, has launched a new AMG GT coupe, after discontinuing the successful original 2015-2023 model. The king of the hill in that original run was the AMG GT Black Series, a track machine with few peers. For those who put down a deposit for the hyper-limited $2.7 million AMG Project One hypercar, Mercedes also offered the opportunity to buy an AMG GT Black Series Project One Edition for nearly $400,000. Just 25 were believed sold in the U.S., and RM Sotheby’s Miami sale in March is offering one, with a pre-sale estimate of $550K-$700K.

January kicked off collector-car auction season with a big bang and big dollars. Following Mecum’s $275M haul in Kissimmee, Florida mid-month, the traditional Arizona auctions added about $245M more to the tally, with $200M of that from Barrett-Jackson’s no-reserve sale in Scottsdale. Bonhams, though, had the highest-priced auction sale in Arizona, with $5.175M buying a Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ (as in 300+ mph test-track capability) for a car with just Bugatti’s test and delivery miles.

To see and be seen in the toniest zip codes, you could hardly do better than a Bentley Azure, a convertible built in two design generations from 1995-2009. The second-generation design introduced in 2006 was based on a more modern chassis and offered performance that belied its size and elegant demeanor. The hand-built Azure was 213 inches long, weighed close to three tons, and used a 450-horsepower twin-turbo V-8. Bonhams is offering a 2007 Bentley Azure in Silver Lake Blue at its Scottsdale auction – at no reserve.

Ferrari had Pininfarina, and Aston Martin had Zagato, at least for a small number of very limited-edition models. The first was in 1961, the DB4 GT Zagato, with just 19 made. One of those sold for $9.5M a few years ago. The most ambitions collaboration between the British automaker and Italian designer/coachbuilder was a quartet of special bodies built around the second-generation V12-powered Vanquish model from 2017-2019. RM Sotheby’s 2024 Phoenix, Arizona auction is offering #33 of the 99 Vanquish Zagato coupes built, with an estimated selling price of $600K-$650K.

The 1960-1962 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II may not have starred in a blockbuster movie about a mischievous Chicago high-schooler playing hooky, but it is nevertheless one of the brightest stars in the Ferrari universe. A bit more focused on touring comfort than its athletic California Spider sibling, the Series II Cabriolet was nearly as fast. Its Pininfarina-designed-and-built body easily draws admiring glances more than six decades later. Just 200 were built, and the RM Sotheby’s Phoenix, Arizona auction is offering one with a plethora of concours and show trophies. The pre-sale estimate is $1.5M-$1.75M.

Porsche last offered its blisteringly fast, track-optimized 911 GT2 RS for 2018-2019, selling about 1,100 in the U.S. It may not be the rarest modern 911 special model, but it remains among the most desirable by the automaker’s ardent collectors and track mavens. Typically optioned, the 911 GT2 RS easily exceeded its $294,000 base price. The 2024 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona is offering a well-optioned 2019 Porsche 911 GT2 RS formerly owned by IndyCar champion Paul Tracy. Offered at no reserve, it will be going to the highest bidder in January.

Lamborghini has had trouble attracting customers from the Witness Protection program, and the Murciélago Roadster is one reason. The absolute antithesis of “blending in,” the open Murciélago was even more extroverted than its coupe sibling, if only because now people could easily see who was driving this 42-inch-high supercar. The $320,000 Murciélago Roadster came with a rudimentary top that made fair-weather driving more appealing than dealing with the annoyance of rain showers. The Barrett-Jackson collector-car auction in Scottdale, Arizona in January 2024 is offering a black 2006 Murciélago Roadster at no reserve.

“I have structured multiple exotic and classic car deals with Premier over the years ranging from contemporary Porsches to vintage Ferraris for reasons much less obvious than competitive rates and the certainty of knowing what it will take to terminate the lease at any given point in time. When parting with large sums of my own money, organizing international purchases, and coordinating 1031 exchanges, I always want the assurance and peace of mind that only PFS can offer. I consider the very experienced team at Premier to be my partner in turning exotic and vintage car dreams into reality.”
“I have had a long and successful relationship with Premier. My collection of cars have come from every source imaginable: overseas, auctions and dealers across the country. In every instance Premier has been a great partner and their leasing options are a perfect fit for my needs. Some of my cars are long-term investments and others I move in and out of quickly. Premier’s lease program makes it possible to not tie up capital that can be invested elsewhere and provides the most advantageous exit strategy in the industry.”
“Working with Premier, both as a client and as a seller, has always been a positive experience. My true passion has always been in automobiles, whether for myself, my viewers, or my customers and I believe in treating customers like friends and family. Premier shares that same enthusiasm and objective. They have a top-notch team and are well-known and respected throughout the collector car industry.”
“My love for Porsche runs deep and my love of driving even deeper. Over the years my wife and I have driven rallies through China, Europe and, most recently, Africa. Through it all, Premier has been a partner with us, facilitating five leases on vintage Porsches and assisting with the details of international transport so we could enjoy experiences of a lifetime. I have referred colleagues and friends to Premier and will continue to do so because of their attention to detail and impeccable concierge services.”
“From my first Lotus to my first-generation Acura NSX-T, I have been continually satisfied with Premier’s superior service. They offer competitive quotes, expedite the drafting of lease documents and fund deals quickly. Thanks to Premier, I have now had the pleasure to drive three of my dream cars. The fact that they have treated me as if I were a high-end client with a garage full of ultra-rare collectibles is inspiring and refreshing. I am grateful for the opportunity to acquire my dream cars and appreciate their professionalism and courtesy. I look forward to the pleasure of working with Premier in the future. “
“I first heard of Premier from a dealership several years back while trying to obtain funding for an exotic car. Previously, I would get funding through my local bank, which was a slow and tedious process. Since then, I’ve leased many exotics through Premier, and have established a good relationship with them.
Working with Keith Neelans and everyone at Premier is a much more enjoyable process than other institutions I’ve worked with. This is due to their great and personable customer service, as well as their fast in painless process for securing leasing for my vehicles. They’ve exceeded my expectations over and over again, and I plan to work with them for years to come.”
“I have been consistently impressed with the Premier team’s availability, attitude, and lease products. Their facilitation of vintage car transactions and their impressive flexibility to work with me individually has helped me achieve my collecting goals. From my local liaison to the head of the organization, the team members at Premier demonstrate motivation to exceed my expectations- with gestures as simple as helping with year of manufacture license plate registrations, to rapid availability at auctions, to more complex and nuanced requests. Premier customizes their service and builds their relationship with me as a unique client.”
“I have leased more than a dozen cars through Premier, and my experience each time has been easy and extremely fast. Premier’s staff members are all very professional, and go out of their way to take care of every detail involved in the transaction. I highly recommend Premier for anyone who is leasing a car.”
“Over the last 8 years, I’ve worked with Premier Financial to lease over 24 exotic cars. At one point, I had 4 different exotic cars leased through Premier at the same time. I’ve found Chris Warren to be a customer oriented professional who delivers a highly personalized level of service. For serious car enthusiasts like me, who are tired of making large cash purchases on high end automobiles, Premier offers the ease of leasing and the ability to get in and out when desired. Whether you’re leasing one car or ten cars, Premier makes it happen! Thanks guys!”
“To say that I love certain automobiles is an understatement. However, where I lease those certain automobiles is very, very important to me and the service I receive is by far, the most important piece of the equation. It’s hard to believe that I leased my first car over 10 years ago with Premier Financial. Since leasing that first car, I have leased 11 more with Premier. I am extremely selective with whom I do business and PFS has demonstrated time and time again that they not only want, but deserve my business. They are so great to work with and so service-oriented that they literally make it impossible to go elsewhere for my leasing needs. So kudos to Premier… they have won me over for life.”
