NEW YORK – RM Sotheby’s, located in the heart of Manhattan, is set to host its “Luxury Week Exhibition” from December 1-8, 2023, at its global New York headquarters.
This prestigious event, now in its fourth iteration, will feature an elite selection of exotic cars, rare sports cars, and high-end luxury vehicles.
The auction, scheduled for December 8th, is the highlight of a seven-day event that includes private viewings and social gatherings for car collectors.
1989 Lamborghini Countach
Among the standout offerings is a unique 1989 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition by Bertone, famously featured in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” with an asking price of $1,500,000 – $2,000,000 USD.
A couple of of my favorites are a hard to find rare 993 Bugatti EB110 Super Sport Prototype (estimated $3,000,000 – $3,400,000), a 2015 McLaren P1 ($2,000,000 – $2,500,000), and a 2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 ($1,500,000 – $1,750,000 USD).
But the king of all speed demon exotic cars is the esteemed Bugatti Veyron 16.4. This Speedster is legendary among hypercar collectors, and is best known for its incredible performance and luxurious design. This particular Veyron is even more special, as it is the 13th of only 252 coupes ever produced, and the second example to be built specifically for the U.S. market.
