INFOGRAPHIC: How Expensive is the Most Expensive Classic Car?


BestRide | Aug 13, 2015

The auctions in Monterey, California are in full swing this week, leading up to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday.  RM Auctions, Russo and Steele, Mecum, Bonham’s, and Gooding and Co. are all on the Monterey Peninsula, scrambling to set records for classic car prices. There are some expensive classics for sale, and the last few years has been huge for collector car values. Last year, Bonham’s sold a 1962 Ferrari GTO for an amazing $36 million. But in the world of collecting, other objects that hang on a wall or stand in a corner sell for orders of magnitude more. Our infographic shows just how expensive cars are versus a lot of other collectibles.
