2021 AUCTION SUMMARY – Last year was a spectacular sales year for RM Sotheby’s at Amelia Island as RM sold over 95% of the vintage cars that crossed the auction block. Four of the most popular cars sold brought in the lion’s share of the $42.174 million grand total sold.
At the top of the list of cars sold was a 1929 Duesenberg Model J ‘Disappearing Top’ Torpedo Convertible Coupe by Murphy. The Duesenberg was expected to sell for around $4 million but ended up in a bidding frenzy and sold for a whopping $5.725 million.
Then there was an extremely rare 1995 Ferrari F50 (48th of 349 produced) that brought a hefty sum of $3,772,500. Next was a popular 1968 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 (one owner since 1973) with only 330 examples manufactured between 1966 to 1968 which sold for $2.810 million.
Lastly, in another bidding frenzy, a top bidder outbid everyone to become the new owner of a beautiful 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider. The Daytona included matching chassis, engine, and gearbox numbers and ended up selling for $2,452,500.
