We’re always interested in auction results and with another Arizona sale complete, let’s have a look at some picks from the Bonhams Scottsdale event.
One of the coolest and under-the-radar Italian coupes is undoubtedly the Alfa Romeo Montreal. Powered by a tiny V8 and perfectly for the times, we think these are brilliant little cars – which have yet to crack into the six figures. This one sold for $77,000 (all prices US dollars and include Bonhams’ premium).
Since all McLaren P1s road cars and P1 GTR track cars have been sold, it’s interesting to see where the modern hypercar market is going. And it’s going up. This example had less than 300 miles on the clock and sold for $2,090,000, well above its original purchase price. No surprise there.
This documented, matching numbers 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 sold for just $525,000. When Singer restorations are priced at $500,000 – and often more – shouldn’t the real thing cost a heck of a lot more?
In our eyes, the bargain of this Bonhams auction had to be this 1991 Aston Martin Virage. As one of the last Astons that could trace it’s lineage to David Brown, and equipped with a five-speed manual, the sale price of $49,500 puts a very exclusive British grand tourer in the garage of a fortunate buyer.
