Late-model RV is top sale at McCormick’s Palm Springs auction


Late-model luxury vehicles were the stars of McCormick’s 66th Classic Car Auction held last weekend in Palm Springs, California. In total, 67.6 percent of the 510 lots were sold for more than $6.3 million, according to the auction company.

A 2018 Airstream Interstate 3500 EXT motorhome with just 2,170 miles on the odometer commanded the highest sale price at the auction. Loaded with upgraded features, it sold for $128,100.

A 2014 Bentley Flying Spur — which happened to be the final car on the block — was the second-most expensive vehicle sold. The winning bidder paid $110,250.

Another late-model Bentley, a 2011 Continental GTC Speed, sold for $92,400, the third-highest price paid for a vehicle at the sale. Boasting just 32,000 actual miles, the car is equipped with multiple packages that add more convenience, better audio and improved looks.

Next up was the priciest classic car, a 1961 Chevrolet Corvette that sold for $91,350, followed by the most expensive import classic, a 1987 Porsche 930 Turbo that went for $89,250.
