The classic car auction world just got a little more crowded, but the promotional video released by The Finest Automobile Auctions suggests that this company may live up to its heady name.
The Finest Automobile Auctions says that it plans to offer their well-heeled clientele "the finest experience for collector car enthusiasts." It also says that it will offer "customized buying opportunities for onsite and online buyers."
Kicking off this weekend in Hershey, Pennsylvania, the company's first auction includes 50 lots that have all been stunningly photographed in a studio setting. Highlights include a 1973 Porsche 911S Targa (estimated at $225,000-$250,000), a 1929 Bugatti Type 40A Roadster (which could sell for up to $500,000), and a 1939 Bentley Mark V Three-Position DHC with Coachwork by Saoutchik valued at $1.2 million.
However, the offerings run the gamut with cars like a 1991 Subaru Sambar 4x4 fire truck, a twin-engined 1962 Citroen 2CV Sahara, and a 1943 Volkswagen Beetle driven by the chief of the Red Cross in Berlin during World War II.
The Finest Automobile Auctions next event will occur outside of Aspen, Colorado, in September, but consignments have not yet been announced.
