Only 18 cars have ever sold at auction for more than US$10 million. It's illustrative that 11 of those cars have sold during the mid–August Monterey Car Week auctions surrounding the Pebble Beach Concours
d’Elegance. This year that number might rise dramatically as there are 10 cars
going to auction over a three day period that are estimated to surpass the $10
The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este and the accompanying Villa Erba auction put on yet another spectacular show at the weekend, with 11 cars selling for more than a million dollars, 34 of the 39 lots on offer sold, and an average sale price of $880,000 per car. While the auction was spectacular, the three day show across the adjacent villas was beyond spectacular in every respect, with the finest of Europe's vast automotive heritage on display.
