Ferraris Are Crushing It At Classic Car Auctions

McQueen FerrariRM Auctions/Darin SchnabelA 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 that belonged to Steve McQueen set a new auction record for the model, selling for $US10,175,000 before a packed house at RM’s Monterey sale.

According to RM Auctions, a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 — originally sold to Steve McQueen, no less — was a highlight of the house’s weekend bidding at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on California’s Monterey Peninsula.

The “King of Cool’s” Ferrari went for $US10,175,000, which sounds impressive until you consider that a 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale was auctioned for more than twice that — $US26,400,000.

As you can see from the preliminary list below, provided by RM Auctions, Ferrari ruled the weekend, with six cars topping the results and several other fetching a hammer price of over a million bucks.

Overall, Ferraris have become the most coveted vehicles in the collectible classic car world. The auctions associated with the Concours d’Elegance proved that beyond the shadow of a doubt.
