$11.55 million 1964 Ferrari 250 LM highlights RM Auctions' first night in Monterey
RM Auctions' Friday sale reinforced this even more when a 1964 Ferrari 250 LM topped the evening by bringing in $11.55 million, after the 10 percent commission. It wasn't the only million-dollar vehicle of the event, though. A 1965 Ford GT40 Roadster Prototype garnered $6.93 million, and a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 brought $1.705 million. Even a classic 1948 Tucker 48 had a final price of $1.57 million.
Surprisingly, some rather new cars actually brought in quite big money, too. A 2013 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Vitesse Le Ciel Californien sold for $2.42 million, and a 2006 Ford GT with just 13 miles sold for $407,000.
A few classic racers weren't quite able to nab a sale, though. A 1986 March 86C that won the Indy 500 stalled out at $1.55 million. That was also true of a 1986 Porsche 962 IMSA GTP where bidding reached $575,000 and a 1963 Lola Mk6 GT at $1.2 million.
RM has another night of auctions on Saturday, and there are likely to be even more million-dollar cars changing hands. Check out our gallery of Friday's highlights.
