    Auctions: 1911 Mercer Type 35R expected to fetch $3M in Monterey
    1402663500

    The history books are filled with defunct American automakers, from Duesenberg and Studebaker to Plymouth and Pontiac. But few of them are as missed by vintage automobile enthusiasts as Mercer. The company only operated between 1909 and 1925, but in that short span of time it produced one of the ...

    Auctions: Steve McQueen's Ferrari 275 GTB/4 to be auctioned in Monterey
    1399723200

    We know from many, many years of watching classic car auctions, that there are certain qualities that ensure big money. For example, putting tiny silver horses and/or yellow badges on a red car will probably bring in a lot of cash. This is doubly true if said car hails from the 1950s or 1960s, ...

    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: 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder added to RM's Monterey auction
    1344295680

    The Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder may have been introduced to the mainstream by the classic 1986 John Hughes' film Ferris Bueller's Day Off (of course, that car was a replica), but the iconic convertible has long been one of the most desirable collector cars for those in the know. With a ...

    Auctions: 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa sells for $6.4M in Monaco
    1337099580

    Few marques get auto collectors riled up quite like Ferrari, and of classic Ferraris, few are as highly sought-after as the legendary Testa Rossa. We're talking, of course, about the 50s-era roadster (as opposed to the 80s-era cheesegrater supercar), and the originals continue to fetch top dollar ...

    Auctions: 1968 Alfa Romeo T33/2 Daytona racing to the auction block in Monaco
    1334095200

    By the early 1950s, Alfa Romeo had grown tired of dominating (and spending huge sums of money on) grand prix racing, and shut down its program. Along with it, a program to develop a small-displacement two-liter V8 was aborted. But Alfa couldn't keep away from racing altogether for very long, and ...

    1329852600

    There are any of a number of places you'd expect to find a Ferrari: at the race track, on the auction block, in the showroom, parked in front of the swankiest restaurants in town...

    Auctions: Extremely rare 1913 Hispano-Suiza Type Alfonso XIII headed for Amelia Island
    1329346800

    Cars get their names from a wide variety of sources: animals, places, the founders of the company that makes them... Some, of course, have completely meaningless names concocted by marketing departments, or bear alphanumeric codes that show where they stand in the company's line-up. But this car ...

    Lee Iacocca's Ferrari F40 up for auction
    1326675660

    Supercars play a volatile and ever-changing game of one-upmanship. With each new generation outperforming the last, it takes something truly special to endure the test of time. The Ferrari F40 is such an icon. Built to celebrate Ferrari's fortieth anniversary, the F40 was the most extreme ...

    We can't tell you how many times we've each been asked about concept cars, "Why can't I buy one of those?" Well you can. Not often, mind you, and not cheaply. But every once in a while, one of those glitzy concepts you see on a show stand comes up for sale. And now, it's time to grab your ...

    1938 Cadillac V16 convertible parades from White House to auction house
    1326643740

    The unfortunate reality of a post-JFK, post-9/11 America means that our president needs to be hidden away from public view, and the details of his high-security transportation are just as hidden. But there was a time when the leader of the free world was paraded around for all to see, and for ...

    '38 Bugatti Type 57 Stelvio Cabriolet hitting the auction block in Monterey

    In the 1930s, the Bugatti Type 57 was, apart from its grand prix racers, the only vehicle offered by Molsheim. It gave rise to several body types, the most famous of which was the iconic Atlantic, but those represented only a handful of the 710 Type 57s that were built over its seven years of ...

    Few classics possess the same level of mystique as the Bugatti Type 57. But while it may be the Atlantic that draws all the attention, every 57 is a special specimen unto itself.
