We’ve written about lots of car auctions here, including some that included really unusual and interesting selections of cars. But if your goal is to get the absolute weirdest, most obscure, bonkersest cars possible, I’m not sure there’s ever been a better auction for you than the one the Western Washington University…
If you spend all of your days agonizing over which 964-generation Porsche 911 to buy, RM Sotheby’s “Exclusively Porsche” collection heading to Amelia Island just gave you an easy answer. The 964 is good in all its forms, so you should buy all of them.
It is time once again for our network to pump out gift guides for the holiday season, prodding you to buy and consume like all the other sheeple. However, no one made a gift guide for us, the people who write Jalopnik. Thankfully, SpeedSource’s auction has us covered. The diesel Mazda6 is for sale, and we’re still…
Formula One legend Michael Schumacher drove this Ferrari F2001 to two of the three wins that helped him claim the 2001 Formula One world driver’s championship, and now it’s set another milestone. Its sale price of $7.5 million makes this the most expensive modern-era F1 car ever, according to Sotheby’s.
Surely this is something that the world has never seen before: a ludicrously expensive Porsche 911 that went for over a million bucks at auction. Unicorn, that is. Never happened before.
I’ve always heard that anyone off the street can go to police auctions and bid on hilariously inexpensive cars. But it wasn’t until last week that I actually attended one of these bidding wars and learned how true that is. Let me tell you, friend: it was amazing.
RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba auction: my favorite time of year. Beautiful weather, Italian food, gorgeous views and expensive cars. It’s my scene. Sure, the auction doesn’t start until May 27, but I’ve already had a look at all of the lots. It’s all about who you know, see.
Level 5 Motorsports’ Scott Tucker and others involved in his payday lending scheme were fined $1.266 billion last October by the Federal Trade Commission for deceptive practices. Tucker’s got to pay the feds off somehow, so everything seized from his race team is going to auction.
I have a lot of stuff and I’m not the most organized person in the world (that’s what the help is for) so from the time to time I lose things. Credit cards, diamond rings, razor blades and 1996 Mercedes-Benz SL500 convertibles are all fair game.
Ron Hackenburger has been collecting cars for about 50 years. He’d always wanted to make his own automotive museum, but things didn’t quite turn out that way. Even so, his collection is wonderfully diverse and full of all kinds of great, interesting cars, many of which may end up in museum collections after all.
The Ferrari 250 GTO is both incredibly rare and mind-blowingly expensive. Soon an example will be offered for auction at a staggering $56 million. In light of our recent election, some people seem to see this as an “investment.”
I was just about ready to give up on everything. Today sucked. Polls show that maybe people are dumber than I thought. Halloween is over. Fuck it all. Then BringATrailer had an E30 being auctioned at the same time as 2007 R63 AMG minivan. The minivan smoked it. America is good.
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the premier old-cars-on-a-golf-course event in the Western Hemisphere. It’s also a place where they sell a bunch of them, to the point where Hagerty is estimating $370 million worth will be sold. Also, a REMINDER: old people get old, and then die.
That pile of junk you see in the picture above doesn’t have the original powertrain, looks like it got bashed in the face with a large hammer, and will require a total restoration. But that doesn’t matter, because this thing was an iconic British race car, so that makes it worth a lot of money.
Car dealer and racing magnate Jim Click is selling his 1966 Ford GT40, 1969 and 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Trans Ams, two 1964 Shelby 289 Cobras and a 1966 Shelby GT350. It’s safe to say that RM Auctions has a real treat for Ford fans in Monterey.
Got several million dollars burning a hole in your tuxedo pants? Need to own a car your neighbors are guaranteed not to have? My friend, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to Hammertime, Jalopnik’s new monthly auction guide listing all the weird and wonderful cars that we can’t afford, but you might, especially…
McLaren Special Operations is selling McLaren F1 chassis #069 (nice) with less than 2,800 miles on its clock for somewhere between $12 to 14 million will all the usual bells and whistles, yet it is our understanding that a Compaq LTE 5280 is not part of the deal.
