Adapting to the still difficult conditions regarding events these days, top automotive auction house RM Sotheby's is staging an online-only sale this month dubbed Driving Into Summer. Bidding opens on May 21, with lots set to close May 28-29. On offer are more than 100 classics and collectible cars, ranging from million-dollar plus Ferraris to for more affordable rides.
Here are five of our favorites:
Italian coachbuilder Ellena created just 50 examples of Ferrari's voracious yet gentlemanly V12-powered 250 GT Coupe. Most significantly their design raised the roof to accommodate taller drivers. Est. $625,000 – $725,000.
The GTO can rocket to a top speed of 189 mph, making it the fastest road car ever produced at the time of its unveiling. The auction house notes "it would stand out in even the world’s finest supercar collections." Est. $2.2 million – $2.4 million.
Perhaps our favorite Ferrari of the 2000s, the Superamerica is definitely one to watch, and if you have the means, collect, as it's a relative steal. Only 170 examples were delivered for North American clients, and this is one of the finest. Est. $260,000 – $300,000.
This spectacular 550 hp re-creation of the iconic Ford GT40 built by California's Superformance is so close to the original it's allowed to bear the GT40 badge. You can see why Superformance GT40s were used in the superb film Ford v Ferrari. Est. $170,000 – $200,000.
The undervalued Pantera is a groovy '70s supercar with Italian-designed bodywork, a good old Ford V8 engine, and American-style luxuries like power windows and air conditioning. Another one to watch. Est. $120,000 – $140,000.
