The most expensive red and green auction cars of the year

In a special slideshow on their website, Sports Car Market has fashioned a sort of Christmas card for collectible car lovers. Culling the year's most expensive lots out of the top auctions from around the globe, they found the ten priciest red and green vehicles to cross the blocks in 2006. Sure we already told you about the top ten overall, but this is kind of special. Starting with the gorgeous red 1958 Ferrari 412S Sports racer that sold for $5,610,000 at RM's Monterey auction, the Maranello marque places three cars in the top ten. The GM Futurliner from the Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson auction and the 1933 Packard 1006 Sport phaeton from Gooding's Otis Chandler collection sell-off round out the reds. Making us green with envy was the 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special coupe that nearly matched the $3.24 million of its corporate cousin Olds F88 from a year ago by topping #3 mil. Jaguar C and D-Types, a 1929 Bentley Speed Six Dual Cowl tourer, and a 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda that brought just over a million bucks, cover the greens.
