Racer X Collection Joins Broad Arrow Amelia Auction

If you’re in the market for a modern supercar, Amelia Island should be your next destination.

Broad Arrow Auctions has announced the addition of the Racer X Collection to its upcoming Amelia Island sale on March 1 and 2. Most of the collection, which is built of both modern and vintage collectibles, will be offered without reserve.

According to the auction house, the collection came about from the owner’s longstanding fascination with the Speed Racer series — and particularly, in the mysterious Racer X.

Cars in the collection reflect that inspiration — a 2022 Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport and 2022 Hennessey Venom F5 Coupe are among the highlights, joined by a 2021 Lamborghini Sián, 2019 McLaren Senna, 2023 Porsche 911 Sport Classic, 2022 McLaren 765LT Spider, 1968 Ferrari 206 GT Dino and a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C.

Barney Ruprecht, Senior Car Specialist and Vice President of Auctions for Broad Arrow, states, “I am delighted to share in the announcement of this outstanding collection now consigned for our Amelia Island auction. The offering of 12 cars is undoubtedly highlighted by the 2022 Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport (estimate: $4,000,000 – $5,000,000) and the 2021 Lamborghini Sián (estimate: $3,000,000 – $3,750,000), two cars with extraordinarily low production numbers and as such, both are seldom seen in collector circles. The private collection will be offered almost entirely without reserve excluding one of the finest Shelby Cobra 427 S/Cs and the Bugatti, however the occasion for the majority of the cars to be offered without reserve is incredibly rare and a unique opportunity onto itself.”

These cars join a diverse group scheduled for this auction, including Pre-War greats from the Gregorie Neck Collection, a  2020 McLaren Speedtail, the 1959 Porsche 718 RSK Spyder known as “Lucybelle III,” a 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spider, the 1954 Dodge Firearrow IV by Ghia and a 1947 Delahaye 135 M Abbott Roadster.

This 140-car sale will take place on March 1 and 2 at the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island in Amelia Island, FL.
