If you weren’t in the city this week, you missed “A Life Of Luxury” from Sotheby’s Auction House. The automotive excitement was handled by RM Sotheby’s, one of the most renowned partnerships in the world of collector cars. The ICONS collection was their 3rd auto auction in NYC, and it saw 11 cars sell for over a million dollars. We offered a preview last week that showcased six of the most anticipated cars. We thought one of them would steal the show, but RM always finds a Dark Horse among the crowd. Tell us if these hammer prices match the market.
1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider Competizione (CHASSIS NO. 1451 GT) $17,990,000
The results speak for themselves. Of course, any Ferrari 250 is destined to bring big money. This car is #2 of only 8 aluminum bodied Californias, and it took home a 5th place trophy from LeMans in ’59. It is Classiche Certified and destined to be untouchable for most of the motoring world. The prices above don’t include fees, transport, or any other variables so click here for complete results from the event. If you don’t like the idea of an auction, we have a few exotic cars for sale, so stay with us for coverage of the 2018 auction season.
