RM / Sothebys Auctions, Another cave of Alibaba ...

Two Ford GT40, P / 1061 chassis from the Jim Clik collection and P / 1057 (private collection), as well as the Shelby AC Cobra (CSX2000) prototype with three other Shelby AC Cobra (CSX2326, CSX2473 chassis from The Jim Clik collection) and CSX3178, a Jaguar D-type (XKD501), an Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Spider, and Ferrari as desirable as the 250 GT Berlinetta Tour de France, the 500 Superfast, a 250 GT Spider California LWB, 268 SP, a 750 Monza (and so on) ... would still turn heads during RM / Sothebys sales in Monterey. Personally, I have not often enjoyed so many such prestigious cars, gathered in one place. For reasons of development of the Portola Hotel & Spa, the exhibition of cars was partly in a tent with the most surprising lighting conditions, and outside. The sale generated a turnover of $ 117.9 million, taking into account the private transactions that followed the sale itself. 82% of the lots were finally sold; Here are some of the most significant.
