The excitement around the 2021 Amelia Island Concours d’ Elegance and its two auctions by Bonhams and RM Sotheby’s was like bottled lightning uncorked. The Amelia was about the last major classic automobile event held last year before COVID restrictions. After that, top auction houses scrambled to put online auction platforms into place. Now, those online sales have joined a growing, permanent roster of buying options.
The 2020 Scottsdale Auctions boasted $226 million dollars in sales between all of the auction houses. This includes supercars, pre-war classics, and even the late Paul Walker’s car collection.
The Cavallino Classic 2020 is coming soon in Palm Beach, FL. Far more than a series of shows, displays and concours judging, the Cavallino Classic is a true enthusiast-based event. While certainly focused on Ferrari, other distinguished marques are prominently celebrated, this year celebrating the 110th anniversary of Alfa Romeo.
Six auction houses are featured, showcasing cars from 1924 to 1941. Marques such as Cadillac, Rolls-Royce, Duesenberg, Auburn, La Salle, Oldsmobile, Buick, and Hispano-Suiza are among the cars up for auction.
