At the Amelia Islands auction ( March 13, 2010) the auction house RM Auctions was able to record a success and gives a positive outlook for the auction year 2010. 112 vehicles were offered, twelve of which could not be sold - this corresponds to a respectable sales rate of 88 percent.

Most expensive vehicle: 1930 Duesenberg Model J Sport Berlina

With more than 1.7 million dollars (around 1.24 million euros), the Duesenberg Model J Sport Berlina with Murphy's body is by far the top seller Amelia Island Auction 2010. The vehicle from the John O'Quinn Collection was expected to be $ 1.2 to $ 1.5 million.

Another Duesenberg from O'Quinn's collection, a 1932 Model J Convertible Coupe, sold for $ 825,000. The third Duesenberg in the auction, a 1925 Model A Phaeton, was also sold, but at $ 104,500 it lagged well behind its estimate of $ 140,000 to $ 180,000.

Ferrari relegated to their places

After the Duesenberg, three Ferrari follow with the highest auction prices. The 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB /4 Berlinetta achieved a very good result of 1.65 million dollars, around 450,000 dollars above the estimate. The Ferrari 275 GTB /4 Alloy Berlinetta (Lot 122) from the same year, however, remained below its estimate of 1.35 to 1.75 million dollars at 1.265 million dollars. The 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB /4 Daytona Spider (lot 119), which Edsel B. Ford II once drove, just made it - it went for $ 1,017,500. His estimate: one to 1.25 million dollars.

Cult sports car with poor auction results: Shelby Cobra USRRC

It was announced as a highlight of the auction, but it failed to meet expectations: the 1964 Shelby Cobra USRRC. Only six of the specimens constructed according to the FIA ​​rules of the time were from Caroll Shelby built and are considered to be the hottest series Cobra versions. The estimate was set high (1.5 to 1.9 million dollars) - but the bidding battle did not materialize. Already at $ 1.275 million it was over, the Cobra was not sold.

German cars with good performance

BMW 600 (lot 105) fetched a fascinating $ 74,250, almost $ 10,000 more than a 1964 Porsche 356 Coupé (lot 106) was worth its highest bidder (63,250). Less than half were offered for a 1960 BMW Isetta 300 (lot 124), but at $ 30,250 it clearly exceeded its estimate ($ 15,000 to $ 25,000).

The Messerschmitt KR 200 (lot 125) from 1956, on the other hand, was relatively cheap. At $ 30,800, its estimate was around 800 Dollar surpassed. The 1964 Amphicar (lot 127) in sky blue paint was auctioned for $ 44,000. Lot 158 ​​was a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Coupé sold. The 1955 model achieved $ 687,500 - significantly more than its estimate of $ 500,000 to $ 600,000.

US cars with mixed results

The all-American vehicles such as the 1958 Corvette (lot 109) achieved particularly good results, which at $ 170,500 achieved significantly more than its estimate of $ 100,000 to $ 125,000. The Chrysler 300D Convertible also significantly exceeded expectations: the last bid was $ 203,500 - the estimate put the 1958 model at $ 125,000 to 150,000. The Pontiac Bonneville 'Hank Williams Jr' Custom Convertible brought in $ 225,500 (an estimate of $ 150,000 to $ 200,000). The 1936 Cord 810 Phaeton fell at $ 170,500.

In the parade: Pontiac Trans Am station wagon and presidential convertible

The Pontiac Trans Am Experimental station wagon version, known as the US sports car, found little acceptance. The bidders got out at $ 35,200, according to the auction house's wishes it should actually be $ 50,000 to $ 80,000.

The red lantern has the 1938 Cadillac V16 Presidential Convertible Parade Sedan earned it. The estimate of $ 400,000 to $ 600,000 was severely missed - the bidders got out at $ 185,000. Result: Not sold.

The 1933 Lincoln KA Dual Cowl Phaeton also stayed with 101,750 dollarswell below the auctioneer's expectations - the estimate was between $ 120,000 and $ 160,000.
