Amelia Island: three hundred are competing to be the two “best”

On March 10th 2019, the eyes of the classic car world turned to Florida, for the 24th Amelia Island Concours of Elegance. As always, founder Bill Warner created a wonderful event, this year further enhanced by the number of cars on display, a record 300 in total, and by the presence of an illustrious, and very charming, guest of honor: Belgian race car driver Jacky Icks, aka “Mr Le Mans”

Bonhams Amelia Island Auction 2019 – Review

Bonhams was the only auction house to sell their top lot, and furthermore 84% of cars sold is a very good percentage, even if helped by the many cars without reserve price. It also managed to sell every car at above a million dollars, and many went beyond their estimates. Finally, the numbers: 15.6 million dollars sold compared to last year's 13.1 million dollars, with an increase of 19.1%.

The Ferrari F40, created to mark the firm’s 40th anniversary, is a milestone in the history of Ferrari because it represented a “return” to cutting-edge performances and technology in a production car built in Maranello. The car offered here (chassis #ZFFGJ34B000091464) is a 1991 specimen that was originally sold in Switzerland through Graber Automobile AG of Wichtrach to a Dr Daniel Schick.

In order to understand a trend, you do not have to look at it from one year to the next, but rather with a more "broad" vision that clearly shows how the market moves. Take RM in Amelia Island as an example. Ten years ago, at this same auction, the cars offered that had less than twenty years (that is, they were built after 1989) were just two and, with 104 cars offered, they accounted for less than 2% of the total.

Gooding Amelia Island Auction 2019 – Preview N° 2

The series W126 coupe is one of the most beautiful post-war Mercedes models, considered the masterpiece of Bruno Sacco, the legendary designer of the 1980s and 1990s. Increasingly sought after by collectors, both of classics and youngtimers, SECs are not easy cars to find in good conditions. They were, and are, such great cars that they tend to clock up a huge mileage as their owners really do use them.
