RM Auctions is the world’s largest auction house for investment quality vehicles, holding six of the top ten records for the most expensive cars sold at auction. This year’s event at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa features 120 blue-chip vehicles, 15 of them with pre-sale estimates exceeding $1 million.
A leader in the sale of Ferraris, RM Auction will present 11 important and historic examples of the iconic brand, lead by a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider expected to fetch somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 million to $9 million. It is the 11th of only 50 long wheelbase California Spiders ever produced.
Star attractions include the “Mockingbird Bentley,” owned and driven for 34 years by film legend Gregory Peck. This 1961 Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur by H.J. Mulliner is estimated to draw $225,000 to $300,000. Nicolas Cage’s 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 by Scaglietti will earn between $2.9 million and $3.2 million.
With an emphasis on “best of category” vehicles, RM Auctions will offer historic sports and racing cars as well as coachbuilt classics. Previews run from 1 to 5 p.m., Wednesday, January 15, and start at 10 a.m. Thursday, January 16 and Friday, January 17. Cars will cross the auction block at 5 p.m., Thursday and Friday.
