expensive car collection sells for $67m

expensive car collection sells for $67mUltimately, the headline results were the $17.6m paid for the Ferrari 250 LM, and the $13.75m for the “LM-spec” McLaren F1 – the latter all the more desirable with its “Brilliant Orange” metallic paintwork illuminated by the saleroom lights (it looked a little flat in the press shots). Ten Ferraris were in the collection, though a yellow 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione previously forecasted to fetch $17 million actually didn’t find a new owner.

The sale marks a success for the newly formed partnership between RM and Sotheby’s, and is expected to set the tone for the rest of the sales in Pebble Beach this week. More than $400 million worth of classic cars will be auctioned in Pebble and Monterey, California, as part of the Concours d’Elegance week.

And it wasn’t the only 250 on offer. Another 250 GT ‘Tour de France’ went for $13.2. Over at Gooding & Co’s Pebble sale, a 250 GT Berlinetta Speciale changed hands for $16.5m, while a Cali Spider – just like Chris Evans’ old Spider – went for $16.8m.

RM Sotheby’s posted $172m over a three-day sale, while Gooding achieved in excess of $70m in just one day. That was Saturday. Sunday’s sale was similarly stratospheric, which means that over the weekend, some $300 million was exchanged for some of the most stunning, achingly desirable machinery on Planet Earth.
