Ayrton Senna's Toleman TG184-2 F1 car up for sale

Ayrton Senna is one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time and his premature 1994 death created a scarcity which is driving memorabilia prices skyward. Earlier this year an ex-Senna helmet fetched US$100,000 at auction and now the car he drove in his debut season is to go to auction - the same car in which Senna drove his way into legend at the wet 1984 Monaco GP.  Read More

In a sign of the times, Ducati has announced it will be selling two very recent Ducati Desmosedici GP machines at auction. The bikes, a GP11 2011 factory Desmosedici which brought Valentino Rossi his only top three finish of the 2011 season, and the other a 2010 model GP10 which Casey Stoner took to victory in the 2010 Australian Grand Prix, are subject to an undisclosed reserve. The buyer will be required to enter into a confidentiality agreement.  Read More

The L-29 Special was designed and built specifically for international show competition at...

When the Great Depression claimed E.L. Cord’s industrial empire, the Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg marques went with it. The Cord L-29 was perhaps one of the most distinctive cars ever produced, thanks to the extra long bonnet necessitated by the straight eight engine and front-wheel-drive system. Though cloaked in various bodies, the long low lines of the L-29 are unmistakeable. The world's best known Cord, winner of countless awards, fell under the auctioneers hammer yesterday, and sold for a record US$2.42 million. Great piccies.  Read More

The 1923 Leica 0-Series is expected to sell for around US$807,755

A collection of vintage Leica cameras are set to go to auction later this year at the WestLicht Photographica Auction. One of the standouts is a 1923 Leica 0-series camera. The 0-series model represented in the auction was one of just 25 of the cameras made by the company and has retained much of its original glory, although this particular camera as been fitted with a Galian finder rather than the folding version found on the original (typical for these cameras). The camera is in fully-working condition, and has the original paintwork and parts. The 0-series is expected to be the most expensive item at the auction, and sell for around US$807,755.  Read More

The Ferrari ARNO XI hydroplane

Even long-time admirers of Enzo Ferrari's sleek, red roadsters might be surprised to learn that he also lent his expertise to create what is still, nearly 60 years later, the fastest raceboat in its class, the one-of-a-kind ARNO XI hydroplane. Developed in 1952 by wealthy Italian industrialist Achille Castoldi and Ferrari Grand Prix racers Alberto Ascari and Luigi Villoresi, the speedy craft, propelled by a 4500cc V12, handily won the world speed record the following year. Now, carefully restored to its original condition, the ARNO XI will soon go at auction to the highest bidder - an honor that's estimated to cost the buyer a cool US$2 million (or more)!  Read More

This 46-Foot Custom Carousel with 42 animals, 2 chariots and a Wurlitzer 153 Band Organ is...

An entire thesis could be constructed on what turns an otherwise normal person into a collector. Whether it be fine art or beer cans, passion for collecting things knows no bounds. Take Bob and Paul Milhous for example. They started out working in the printing industry, and along the way Paul discovered an interest in musical instruments after buying a piano, while Bob kicked off his fascination with desirable motorcars with a 1934 Packard. Eventually a decision to combine the two individual, and very eclectic, collections into one saw four changes of location before finally settling in at a huge, purpose-built private complex in Florida. Now this fascinating array of historical objects is up for auction.  Read More
