Broad Arrow Auctions will hold their third auction later this month in West Palm Beach November 18-19. We expect the same high quality of vehicles to be on offer as we’ve seen in the previous Broad Arrow sales, which got us excited about what the really high-end lots could be, so this is the list of what we expect will be the Top Ten most expensive cars to be offered by Broad Arrow in West Palm Beach.
Broad Arrow’s estimate on this car is $1,600,000 – $1,800,000 and that makes a strong case for it being the most expensive car on offer, certainly going by their estimates. We really like that this isn’t a car that’s only covered a handful of miles. It’s seen some use, fewer than 3,500 miles, but not excessive use either. We expect this will be a solid car to use on the road, while still remaining in excellent condition.
McLaren built the Senna with essentially no limits – it’s close to what every kid would have dreamed up for a supercar in 2019. And this one? Come on, it has a 24k gold engine bay heat shield as part of the $360,000+ in options! Very limited production with only 500 built worldwide and only 475 miles showing on the odometer. Broad Arrow’s estimate on this is $1,450,000 – $1,600,000 and we could see it give the Carrera GT a run for its money.
That number in the model name? That’s how many of these cars were produced – 63! And the odometer doesn’t show even double that number with just 123 miles since it was built. This may turn out to be a long-term collectible in part due to the engine – a 6.5L V12 which is notable as we’re at the end of the era of Lamborghini V12 engines. With an auction estimate of $1,100,000 – $1,200,000 the exclusivity of the car should get bidders plenty motivated.
We’ll be honest. This one’s new to us. Mainly because, although sanctioned by Ford, this is an aftermarket car of sorts. But it’s a very cool car nonetheless. Finished in a great Valencia Orange and rocking a targa-style roof, this car is pretty much brand new, at least when it comes to its condition. It’s covered 129.5 miles and is something that will get attention anywhere it goes. Broad Arrow’s estimate is $850,000 – $1,000,000 and we don’t expect the bidding to break into the seven-figure range, but high six-figures should make the current owner happy.
Here’s something you certainly don’t see at any old auction – a car featured in Gymkhana Nine, a video that’s racked up well over 50 million views. Powered by a four-cylinder, 2.0L engine that generates more than 600 horsepower, it’s claimed this has a 0-60 time under 2 seconds, which is just crazy but also exactly what was needed for that video. The bidding on this car will be heavily influenced by how many of the bidders follow the Gymkhana series. Broad Arrow estimates this to be worth $400,000 – $600,000 and we expect the high bid to be closer to the low end of the estimate.
This is a very clean, seldom used four-option example of the mid-00’s Ford GT. Showing 140 miles when it was consigned, the supercharged V8 outputs 550 horsepower and powers it from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds. Included in the sale is the factory car cover along with the owner’s manual and both original keys. The estimate from Broad Arrow is $500,000 – $600,000 but, having seen an extremely low mileage Heritage Edition GT fall a bit short recently we this car’s at the point at which future owners will have to stop caring about the low mileage so a final bid below $600,000 certainly isn’t out of the question.
This is an extremely clean example of the 2016 Porsche 911 R, one of only 296 that were originally delivered to the US. Finished in the official Porsche white with red stripes, it looks as fast as it is. We’re happy to see the six-speed manual transmission that’s paired with the 4.0L, 500 horsepower GT3 RS engine. The estimate from Broad Arrow on this car is $500,000 – $600,000 and honestly, for a car this recent but still so limited in availability that’s not unreasonable.
This 2010 Alfa Romeo 8C Spider is coming from its first and only owner and shows just 204 miles on the odometer. Alfa Romeo produced 500 examples of the Spider, but only 35 were delivered to the US and this is one of them. Now, Alfa Romeos don’t always do it for us, but there’s something special about this one. It evokes memories of the classic Alfa Romeos of the pre-war era. Broad Arrow’s estimate of $400,000 – $500,000 seems like it might be a little strong, but then again only 35 of these were brought into the US so it wouldn’t be a complete shock to see bidding on this end up in the neighborhood of $415,000.
There’s nothing like the M1. Maybe the 850 CSi, since that was originally to have continued the legacy of the M1, but we know how that turned out which brings us right back to: there’s nothing like the BMW M1. BMW built 399 examples of the M1 which were street-legal and this example retains its factory-delivered color combination. It’s had some recent upkeep performed, but it a great example of the BMW so many of us lusted after when younger. Although Broad Arrow’s estimate is $450,000 – $500,000, we think that might be a bit strong and suggest the owner should sell when the bids start approaching the $400,000 range.
Fittingly, we’re closing with a 1965 Shelby GT350, having so recently participated in the GT350 tour! This is an early production example – 151st of the street-legal GT350s for ’65 – and received the Gold Award at the 2015 SAAC convention. That same year it also won Best in Class at Hilton Head and has been restored by Orlando Mustang. Showing a documented 18,407 miles, this is the GT350 to buy if one is planning on buying a GT350. Broad Arrow’s estimate of $425,000 – $500,000 is likely achievable, though perhaps it will land in the lower part of that range, but that should be a solid price for this car.
