RM Sotheby’s 19th annual Fort Lauderdale auction cleared $16.9 million in sales over its two days. Top sales included a 2005 Ford GT that was owned by Kid Rock since it was new, selling for $638,000.
A 1984 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 S by Bertone from The Rey Collection sold for $632,500. It’s finished in Nero Tenebre with a Rosso leather interior and showed fewer than 9,000 miles on the odometer.
Another Lamborghini, a 1998 Diablo VT Roadster with a metallic silver exterior and black interior sold for $467,500 to its second ever owner having covered just over 3,000 miles since new. It features the pop-up headlamps from the Series I Diablo styling and is one of only 200 Diablo VT Roadsters built.
Other cars from The Rey Collection commanded strong prices and the entire collection had a sell-through rate of 91%. The fourth most expensive car at RM Sotheby’s Fort Lauderdale was a 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi in classic Rosso Corsa with roughly 7,200 miles on the clock, coming in at $462,000.
A 1972 Maserati Ghibli SS 4.9 Coupe by Ghia, also from The Rey Collection, sold for $352,000. It is one of only 413 examples built as a left-hand-drive model and it still has its numbers-matching engine sitting under the Dark Blue Metallic paint.
As common as it is to see boats at car auctions, the 1990 River Ferrari 32 – one of only 40 built as a collaboration between Ferrari and the top boat manufacturer in Italy – sold for $299,000, nearly twice the pre-auction estimate.
Other cars in the top ten at RM Sotheby’s Fort Lauderdale auction include another 2005 Ford GT at $437,250, a 1962 Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato Recreation for $456,500, a 1938 Horch 853 Sport Cabriolet for $374,000, a 2005 Ferrari Superamerica at $330,000, and a 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster that sold for $308,000.
The next RM Sotheby’s auction will be held in Monaco on May 14, followed by a themed online sale at the end of May that is still accepting consignments.
