    1390231680

    All manner of vehicles change hands at the annual auction extravaganza in Arizona, but never has one sold for as much as the Ferrari you see here. The car in question is an (obviously) eminently desirable 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, one of only 50 ever made and purring onto the ...

After the Mercedes W196 grand prix racer that set the world record this past July at nearly $30 ...

    1387412100

    The concept of a televised classic car auction is really a fairly recent phenomenon. Some of the greatest or most significant sales of all time exist only in stills and in the memories of the people who were there. Here are ten for the ages: 1. RM Auctions - Monterey, CA (2013) It's a tough ...

    Auctions: 1955 Lincoln Indianapolis concept up for auction
    1379768460

    Lincoln was never a brand known for making sports cars. In fact it hasn't offered anything with less than four doors since the demise of the Mark VIII, and that was hardly what you'd call "performance oriented". But that doesn't mean that Ford's luxury marque never toyed with the idea. In 1955 ...

    Auctions: Pebble Beach cars with the best chance of breaking $10 million
    1376334060

    Pebble Beach is "Shark Week" for the classic car crowd.

This year ...

    1374692280

    It isn't every day that the rarest of Ferrari models change hands. In fact, you can count your fingers to get the number of 275 GTB/4*S N.A.R.T. Spyders that ever existed.
