Bonhams Collector Car Auction: The Highest High And The Lowest Low

by Mike –

I previewed the Bonhams collector car auction yesterday in Carmel. Here are photos of the Ferrari 250 GTO which very well may become the highest priced car every sold after the auction tonight. It is being auctioned at no reserve.

Let us know in the Comments what you think it will sell for (the hammer price).

This is the lowest of the low where the auction company and the seller are selling the dirt as an important part of the value of this Jaguar. This car recently sold at another auction and is immediately for sale again at Bonhams with all the same dirt in place and untouched.

I am sorry to see Bonhams falling to the trap of selling “dirt as patina”.

Again, I recommend all auction company executives read, The Stewardship of Historically Important Automobiles by The Simeone Automotive Foundation.

Let us know what you think in the Comments.
