2016 Amelia Island Weekend Recap

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

This year’s Amelia Island weekend was full of fantastic events, like the duPont REGISTRY Live Hangar Party, Concours d’Elegance and, of course, the auctions. These auctions brought in record figures and large crowds, thanks in large part, to the Seinfeld Porsche collection and a slew of incredible classics. Bringing in a record $134 million in total sales, the Amelia Island auctions stood well next to industry favorites like Scottsdale and Pebble Beach. As promised in the preview, here we are with the recap.

Major players were Gooding & Co. ($60.16 million), RM Sotheby ($38.8 million) and Bonhams ($27.7 million), and the crowds were, as reported by The Florida Times Union Jacksonville, “fantastic.” The top seller at Amelia Island was a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California, whose final gavel price was $17.6 million. Other notables included Seinfeld’s 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, which sold for $5.34 million. Many other examples made a lasting impression, including a 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Coupe and a 1960 Volkswagen Beetle, which sold for a record-breaking $121,000. Check out the list of show winners below.

Along with the auctions, the famous Amelia Island Concours d-Elegance took place. Check out the list of concours show winners below.
