RM Sotheby’s Miami Catalog is Live

RM Sotheby’s all-new auction at the inaugural ModaMiami event is just weeks away — and the longstanding auction house will be bringing a wide variety of collector cars to this new event at the Biltmore Hotel Coral Gables in Miami on March 1 and 2.

The catalog for this event is now complete and live, and it consists of examples that range from modern supercars to traditional blue-chip collector cars. 

A wide selection of cars is somewhat common among established auction houses when they extend to new locations, as it both shows off the range of the house as well as allowing them to gauge the market interest for different types of lots at a new sale.

Specific highlights of this new auction include a 1990 Ferrari F40 that’s been in single ownership from new. This is a Euro-spec non-cat non-adjust model that has all its matching numbers and components and is pending Ferrari Classiche Certification. It’s estimated to be worth from $2.8m to $3.4m.

A 1967 Ferrari 365 California Spyder will also be available — the ninth of 14 such grand tourers built, and Ferrari Classiche Certified with Red Book as well as an FCA Platinum Award from the 2004 Cavallino Classic. It’s estimated at $4m to $4.5m.

Other blue-chips on offer include a 1966 Porsche 906 Carrera 6, campaigned by Porsche werks driver Sepp Greger to the 1966 2-Liter Class Euro Hillclimb Championship and the 1968 Euro Mountain Championship. It’s been restored to its original configuration and comes with a correct 906 Carrera 6 engine, number 906-133. RM Sotheby’s estimates it to bring from $1.8m to $2.2m.

In terms of Full Classics, RM Sotheby’s will present a 1929 Duesenberg Model J “Sweep Panel” Dual-Cowl Phaeton by LeBaron. This car was delivered to Philip K. Wrigley from new and is said to have its original engine, chassis, firewall and coachwork. The car was restored by Brian Joseph’s Classic & Exotic Service, and has since won a number of awards. RM Sotheby’s estimates it to be worth from $2,65m to $2.85m.
