Monterey Car Week 2019: Day Two Auction Results

Monterey Car Week is full of things to do. In fact, there are so many opportunities for car lovers, we've put together an entire Monterey Car Week Events Guide just to make Car Week manageable for the average person. One thing there are plenty of: Collector car auctions, and Monterey sales often set the tone of the collector car market for the next year. Yesterday marked the second day of auction sales, and the valuation experts at Hagerty were kind enough to once again share their analysis of day two with us:

Hagerty said:

 

Overall sales totals through Friday were $142.1M. Even though both RM Sotheby’s and Bonhams started early with an extra day on Thursday this year, gross totals are down about 25 percent (or nearly $50M) from the $191M total through Friday in 2018. While there were 16 more cars offered for the first two days in 2019, nearly 30 fewer failed to meet the reserve and the average sale price was more than $75,000 less.

 

The day’s most anticipated car – the 1994 LM-spec McLaren F1 offered by RM Sotheby’s – was indeed the day’s biggest sale and the most expensive F1 ever sold at auction with a $19.805M final price. RM Sotheby’s also sold the 1965 Ford GT40 Prototype Roadster for $7.65M, while Gooding & Company sold a closed-headlight 1958 Ferrari 250 California LWB Spider for $9.905M and the 1975 French Grand Prix-winning ex-Niki Lauda Ferrari 312T Formula One car for $6M. Bonhams’ star cars and the biggest of its two-day auction were a 1951 Ferrari 340 America out of 50 years of single family ownership which started a vigorous bidding war and sold for $3.635M, and a 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 that sold for a very strong $1.38M. Mecum also continued its two-wheeled success this week with a 1912 Indian Twin Board Track Racer that became the most expensive Indian ever sold at auction at $253,000, and sold a 198-mile Mercedes-Benz 560SL for a staggering $121,000.

 

Although sales are down across the board and the general condition of consignments is down compared to last year, many of today’s top sales show that buyers recognize rare opportunities to acquire unique cars with special provenance, and they are willing to pay for them. And even though this is Monterey, buyers were also willing to step up for cars at the more affordable end of the price spectrum in the $25,000 - $50,000 bracket. Standouts in this category include a 1974 Fiat X1/9 selling for $25,760 at Bonhams and a 1972 Datsun 240Z selling for $34,100 at Russo and Steele.

 

Saturday will close out Monterey auction week with RM Sotheby’s offering the much-anticipated 1939 Porsche Type 64, Gooding & Company running the one-off 1953 Alfa Romeo 6C CM Superflow IV, Mecum bringing out a 2017 Pagani Huayra Roadster, and Russo and Steele presenting a 1995 Porsche 911 RUF BTR2.
