“RM Sotheby’s has been a leader in the high-end automotive market for over 40 years, and our results this year are a testament to that—but we never stop adapting, growing, and redefining what an auction can be. Our team continues to explore new spaces, concepts, and destinations to ensure that RM Sotheby’s is always innovating. The Miami sale will harmonize architectural and automotive design at an exclusive event in the heart of Miami Beach,” said Gord Duff, RM Sotheby’s Global Head of Auctions.

One of the auction’s biggest highlights is an example of one of the most coveted models from the modern classic era — a 1990 Ferrari F40. This 2,736-mile example is one of 213 that were built for the U.S. market. The F40 was originally sold to Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft. The supercar comes with its Ferrari Classiche Red Book, tool kit, owner’s manuals, Schedoni fitted luggage and Marcel Massini history report.

The star of the collection offered in Florida is a 1989 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary coupe. The red over tan example has covered under 7,000 kilometers.

Other highlights include a 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC AMG 6.0 Wide-Body, 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe and 1995 Ferrari F512 M — the final iteration of the iconic Testarossa.

These four cars, along with many of the auction’s other lots are being sold without reserve.
