Can’t wait for the next Barrett-Jackson collector car auction?
An exceptionally rare and historic Ferrari competition champion from the late 1960s has been consigned for Bonhams’ Scottsdale auction in January.
Despite questions about its authenticity, a red-white-and-blue custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle sold for a record $1.35 million last weekend.
Think “auctions” and “January” and you probably envision classic cars being sold in Phoenix and Scottsdale.
In England, Goodwood Motor Sport has announced 2015 dates for its Festival of Speed and Revival meeting, though the news release adds that the dates are “provisional.”
Yes, it’s an auction for buyers and sellers. However, it’s also a wonderful car show.
The words “instant classic” get thrown around quite a bit, usually wrongly, but if ever a modern car deserved the title, it’s the Ford GT.
Since getting back into the classic car auction business in November 2012, Carlisle Auctions has staged four sales, the most recent earlier this month.
With 29 of the 38 lots selling, the auction totaled more than $4.8 million in sales, led by the $872,022 paid for a 1989 Ferrari F40 formerly owned by Nigel Mansell.
This being Hershey, not Monterey, the catalog for the annual RM Auction was packed with pre-war classics, not Ferraris and similar multi-million-dollar sports cars.
