Broad Arrow Amelia Island 2024
As January gets closer the auction season will kick off in full force. But looking further into the year and we realize that Amelia Island isn’t that far off either. Broad Arrow will hold their Amelia Island Auction again and they’ve been dropping some big news about early consignments.
Arguably the most significant car to be announced so far is a 1959 Porsche 718 RSK Spyder known as “Lucybelle III.” The 718 RSK Spyder was produced from 1957 to 1962, a further development of the 550A. The car that will be offered by Broad Arrow was delivered to Ed Hugus, an accomplished American racer. He competed at Le Mans behind the wheel of the 718 RSK Spyder, one of only 24 customer models produced.
Its four-cam engine was rebuilt by noted Carrera expert Karl Hloch while the car was restored its 1959 “Lucybelle III” configuration by Rare Drive, Inc. Since the restoration was completed the car was shown at the 2021 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where it took a class award prior to winning First in Class at the 2021 Audrain Concours d’Elegance.
Broad Arrow’s estimate on this car is $3,500,000 – $4,500,000.
Other notable cars set to hit the auction block include a 2020 McLaren Speedtail finished in Kingfisher Blue that shows just 890 miles since new. It boasts more than $500,000 of options. The Speedtail is expected to bring more than $2,000,000 when it hits the block.
Another car worth noting is the 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 NASCAR that won the 1966 Permatex 300, a rare unmolested example of a stock car from the time the cars on the track weren’t so different than the ones on the showroom floor. Although this won’t break into the seven-figure range, its originality and on-track success more than justify the pre-auction estimate of $100,000 – $125,000.
We’ll check out more of the cars set to be offered by Broad Arrow at Amelia Island as the auction and the 2024 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance draw closer.
