It was a successful weekend for all three international auctioneers that held a sale during the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. With a 92% sell through rate and a gross total of $66.7 million, Gooding had the best day of all. The 99-lot sale was topped by the exquisite Talbot Lago T150C SS Figoni & Falaschi Teardrop Coupe. Exceeding its $10 million estimate, it found a new owner for a record-breaking $13.4 million.
The most coveted machine in the $14.2 million Bonhams auction was the Porsche 550 RS Spyder. Owned by the same family during the last 50 years, it literally was a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire this particular 550 RS Spyder. For this privilege someone was ready to pay nearly $4.2 million.
Although the finalised results are not in at the time of writing, it looks like RM Sotheby's had a $46.6 million day on Saturday. Leading the way was the very rare Packard Twelve Dietrich Convertible Victoria that had been owned by some of America's most prominent collectors. Meeting the estimate, one of three known survivors crossed the block for $4.1 million.
