“The Amelia” may have dropped “Island” from its name, but this year’s event will be special, now under the Hagerty umbrella of automotive assets. Read our detailed description of what’s scheduled, whether you’re attending in person or virtually.
The “Elkhart Collection” is no more. RM Sotheby’s offered all of them at no reserve and brought in $44.3m. The top sale was a 1952 Ferrari 225 S Berlinetta by Vignale, which brought in $2.8m, followed by 1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic by Ghia $2.04m.
A 2004 Ferrari 360 Spider with just one-owner will be up for auction by RM Sotheby’s at its Amelia Island Concours auction in March. It features a F1 transmission and with just 392 miles. The $125k-$175k pre-sale estimate is about what its base price was when new.
Mercedes made only 65 Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition for global consumption, with 30 coming to the US. This past week, Gooding & Company sold one at its Scottsdale auction for $240k. The pre-sale estimate was $250k-$300k for an essentially new vehicle with just 150 miles.
Come out of the cold for a week of sun-soaked auctions in Scottsdale, Arizona. Of the thousands of collector cars sold, the couple hundred offered by RM Sotheby’s are in a league of their own.
Car collectors may remember the year 2013 for two of the highest auction prices ever paid for automobiles. Among such breathtaking figures, the $1.16-million sale of another 1967 sports car might have gone unnoticed, except for one thing: it was the highest amount ever paid for a Japanese car, a 1967 Toyota 2000 GT.
