Ferrari is obviously exempt from ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus’ oft-quoted maxim, ‘the just constant in life is change’. During final weekend’s Pebble Beach deals, absolutely nothing changed. The most expensive vehicle sold on the weekend ended up being… a Ferrari 250.
Therefore inside unique microcosm of auction-land, nothing really changes. Yet another Ferrari 250 establishing society ablaze; this time around, especially, a Ferrari 250 LM, which offered for an impressive $17, 600, 000 through RM Sotheby’s monster three-day purchase.
And it also had beenn’t truly the only 250 being offered. Another 250 GT ‘Tour de France’ moved for $13.2. At Gooding & Co’s Pebble sale, a 250 GT Berlinetta Speciale changed fingers for $16.5m, while a Cali Spider – similar to Chris Evans’ old Spider – went for $16.8m.
RM Sotheby’s posted $172m over a three-day sale, while Gooding obtained more than $70m in only one-day. That has been Saturday. Sunday’s purchase was similarly stratospheric, which means that on the weekend, some $300 million ended up being exchanged for a few of the very stunning, achingly desirable machinery on Planet Earth.
Needless to say, it wasn’t all Ferrari (but many it, um, was, just like the gorgeous F40 overhead). There were in addition notable entrants from Lamborghini, Jaguar, Porsche and McLaren with that F1, which all took record sums.
