Here are the ten biggest sellers from the 2015 Monterey car week
Monterey 2015 saw an amazing selection of cars head to auction, with a number of records falling. US-based insurance and classic car valuation specialists Hagerty have noted that although a success for some auction houses, the total sales for the week have not surpassed the 2014 total.
This top ten has confirmed a few things though. Ferraris are still in huge demand at the very top of the market, while the McLaren F1 has shown that modern supercar should be taken very seriously.
Of the auction houses in the top ten, RM Sotheby’s took the most in sales throughout the week – a whopping $167m – followed by Gooding and Company who managed to make a little over £128m. Bonhams snuck into the top ten with a single $8.5m entry, making total sales of $46,738,000.
