2010 RM Monterey Auction - Click above for high-res image gallery

RM Auctions always reserves its most prestigious cars for Saturday night during the Monterey car week, and this year's lineup of vehicles was one of the most impressive in recent history. No less than 14 cars broke the million dollar mark, although the highlight of the auction, a 1958 Ferrari 250 TR, failed to meet its reserve price despite a $10.7 million offer on the table. Here's a rundown of the million dollar cars at the auction:

      Drew, do you know how much the Packard Myth went for? It's a custom made by respected Packard restorer Francis J. Roxas. It's the first hot rod he's built and it won one of the Great Eight awards as a finalist for the Ridler Award at the Detroit Autorama. The RM site is useless to find recent auction results.

      But this FXX will be caught in the factory?? or someone will have the dream come true to have it in the garage??

        I wonder about that too. I guess it could be that he is selling his spot (and the car) in the factory program to someone else. That, or the program is over, so the cars can be sold for keeps. I'm pretty sure at least 2 of the non evo FXX's have been converted by places like Edo competition for street use in Europe, so maybe once the program is over you can do what you want with it.

      That 250 TR isn't a very nice colour scheme, imo - certainly not compared to the epic black/red/white one they auctioned a couple of years ago.

      Yet no coverage on Speed...

      I'm starting to think that station should just fold & re-dedicate themselves to crocheting.

      The people who get to drive the cars on to the stage at these kinds of auction have seriously got one of the coolest jobs in the world, I'm pretty sure if I was the guy pulling up the FXX I'd need a new change of pants after wards, and no I'm not talking about crapping or pissing my pants lol.
