Fangio's Mille Miglia Ferrari 290 sells for $28 million

Several storied automobiles crossed the auction block at RM-Sotheby's New York "Driven by Disruption" sale on December 10, the last big sale of the year before the Scottsdale round of auctions in January begin 2016.

Janis Joplin's psychedelic 1964 Porsche 356C SC Cabriolet was expected to sell for between $400,000 and $600,000, but fetched $1.7 million to set a record for the Porsche 356. Finally, Roy Rogers' 1963 Pontiac Bonneville Nudiemobile fetched $308,000, which is a record for a Bonneville, but still less than his saddle ($386,500) or his Martin guitar ($554,500). Read More
