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.
Scheduled for Thursday January 16th and Friday January 17th from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. both days, the RM Sotheby’s auction will present a diverse selection of nearly 170 fine collector vehicles, ranging from the prewar era to the blindingly fast supercars of the present.
