Scottsdale auctions round-up, Porsche goes rallying and latest VUHL 05RR ...

After a week of frantic bidding, the results are in from Scottsdale. The top seller this year was the ex-Nicholas Cage Ferrari 250 GT SWB that was sold at the Gooding auction for just over $7.5 million. The sale itself was also the most successful with a $48 million total. At rival RM Sotheby's, this low mileage Ferrari 288 GTO lead the way with a final sale price of $3.4 million, while the Bonhams auction was topped by this fabulous Maserati A6G 2000 Frua Spider.
Having been successful in the past with this Rally Monte Carlo winning Porsche 911, the German manufacturer have now announced a return to rallying in the R-GT class. Offering a first glimpse of what is to come is this 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport Rallye Concept that was demonstrated this weekend at a Volkswagen Group gathering in the Zell am See winter sport resort.
On the other side of the world, during the Race of the Champions in Mexico, the new VUHL 05RR broke cover. It represents a further development of the small Mexican sports car. Compared to the original 05, it is both lighter and more powerful. The 05RR is for sale in select markets with immediate effect.
Ahead of the official launch, Reiter Engineering have released another teaser of the upcoming Xymera, which clearly shows that the intriguing machine will be an off-road vehicle.

If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
