This Is What A $65 Million Car Collection Looks Like: Video
Don’t look now, but the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is just about a month away from kicking off. As has been the case over the years, the cars being judged during the show will be as fawned over as the cars being auctioned, and RM Auctions promises an exciting collection of ultra-rare sports cars with The Pinnacle Portfolio.
Estimated to be worth around $65 million, this collection of 23 cars has just about every possible option for wealthy auto collectors to bid on. Scrolling through the list of cars, this isn’t just a collection of rare, high-dollar cars, it is a collection of automotive history worthy of being museum showpieces. These include the the final production 2005 Ferrari Enzo (previously owned by Pope John Paul II), the first production 2006 Bugatti Veyron with just 764 miles on the odometer, a 1967 Toyota 2000GT in pristine original/unrestored condition, that is the first left-hand-drive version of the car and the first one to be delivered to the U.S.; the final race-ready 1994 Ferrari F40 LM ever built, and a fully restored 1971 Lamborghini Miura.
Odds are that these exquisite specimens won’t even be the highest priced of the lot. That will likely fall upon one of the older Ferraris, such as the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT California Spider, the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 or the 1964 Ferrari 250 LM. It will be interesting to see if any of these – most likely the 250 LM – will be able to topple last year’s record-breaking $38 million auction price of the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, chassis number 3851GT.
Looking for even more metal to lust over? This collection also has a 1988 Porsche 959 with about 13,000 miles, a one-of-two 2005 Saleen S7 with the Competition Package (and featured in Iron Man), a 2005 Maserati MC12 and a 1-of-10 1993 Jaguar XJ220 with less than 2,000 miles.
The RM Auctions link here has all of the cars and their details, but the video gives a more realistic view of the cars sitting in a Los Angeles warehouse.
But I want to know who this mystery collector is, or was?
