Some of the top cars in the world are sold at the much heralded RM Auction here in Monterey, California.
Look at what is happening:
One of the rarest cars to be sold here at the RM Auction was a 1967 Ferrari 275 NART Spider when it crossed the block at $25 million. This sale set a record for Ferrari sports cars. There were only ten of these NART cars built by Ferrari. One was owned by the late actor Steve McQueen, but he crashed the car and it was lost. McQueen tried to buy this one but the owner declined. The family donated all the proceeds of the sale to charity.
The action is getting serious at the RM Auction today with this 1953 Ferrari 375 MM Spider drawing a winning bid of $8,250,000. Our photographer Bob Boberg of eClassicAutos.com tweeted that “things are getting serious here.”
A gorgeous 1935 Hispano Suiza K6 Cabriolet was sold for $2,050,000.
