Never a dull moment with these two Italian supercar superpowers.

Forget March Madness, Florida brought the heat to the collector car world with the quartet of Amelia Island auctions booking $186 million in sales, a record for the venue. The top sale, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GT California Spider, accounted for $18M by itself. Ferraris grabbed 13 slots across the four auctions’ Top-10 lists, and Porsches took four. Modern supercars made some auction Top-10 lists, including $5.3M for a rare Pagani Zonda and $2.4M for a McLaren P1. A 1931 Duesenberg put the spotlight on Pre-war cars with a $4.3M sale.

It’s good to be king, because then you can order yourself a custom-built car like the Maserati made for the Shah of Iran in 1959. The monarch and budding car collector requested that Maserati build a special car by installing the V-8 engine from its 450S racecar into the 3500 GT production coupe. The result was the 170-mph 5000 GT. Maserati made 34 with bodies by various coachbuilders. At its Amelia Island auction, Bonhams is offering one of the 22 with bodies by Allemano, a restoration candidate with a pre-sale estimate of $500K-$800K

While the “Imperial” and “LeBaron” names became diluted on mainstream Chrysler cars in more recent history, the two had once created great American luxury together. LeBaron was America’s most distinguished designer of the period, creating bodies for the world’s top luxury automakers. The early 1930s Chrysler Imperials designed by LeBaron are among America’s most beautiful classics. Marjorie Merriweather Post, who owned General Foods Corporation, must have thought so when she purchased this 1933 Chrysler Imperial CL Dual Cowl Phaeton. Bonhams is offering the car at its Amelia Island auction, with a $375K-$450K pre-sale estimate.

The letters on your modern car’s trunk lid might have no real meaning, but the “S” on the back of a classic Porsche 911 signified a major performance upgrade over the standard car. Porsche’s marketing for the original 911S cautioned, “This is no car for a novice.” The 911S rewarded skilled drivers while being known to put a scare into those unfamiliar with its handling traits. RM Sotheby’s is offering a rare concours-restored 1968 911S at no reserve at its Amelia Island auction in March. Expect hot bidding.

Would you recognize this car as a Lamborghini? It’s the Islero, and it’s rare with just 225 made for 1968-1969. Named for the bull that killed one of Spain’s most famous bullfighters, the Islero packed the punch of a six-carburetor V-12 that could take it to 150 mph. The Islero’s modernistic look presaged the angular style would define exotic car design in the Seventies. Gooding & Company will offer this restored black 1968 Lamborghini Islero at its Amelia Island auction, where it is estimated to sell for up to $500,000.

A 1986 hit movie made the Ferrari 250 GT California Spider famous among non-enthusiasts, but the California Spider had a rich life before that film. Enthusiasts have revered the car as a pinnacle Ferrari classic since it left the factory more than a half-century ago. The Ferrari collectors who restored this 1962 California Spider bought it in lightly damaged condition in 1972 for – wait for it – $2,400! It is expected to sell for up to $22 million at the Gooding & Company Amelia Island auction.

The 2023 collector car auction season got off to a roaring start in January. The Bonhams Scottsdale auction reached $30M in sales, and RM Sotheby’s reported $44M. The big surprise came from Bonhams, where a 1912 Simplex brought $4.8M, a record for a pre-WWI car. Supercars were still supreme, though, with a Ferrari LaFerrari getting $4.075M at RM Sotheby’s and, earlier in the month, a Ferrari F40 topping the Mecum sale in Kissimmee, Florida at $3.135M.

“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.”
