  • 1988 Lamborghini LM002 for sale, via RM Sotheby's

    The Lamborghini Urus isn't the first SUV from the Italian firm. That distinction goes to the Lamborghini LM002, a rough-and-tough SUV with Countach-like performance and a go-anywhere attitude. For anyone who needs such a vehicle in their life, one is heading to auction. RM Sotheby's consigned this 1988 Lamborghini LM002 for its Amelia Island (Florida) auction and it shows 33,000 miles on the odometer. This is an early model with a carbureted V-12 under its angular hood. As cool as that is, it makes the LM002 a thirsty thing. The less-than-impressive 8 mpg is somewhat mitigated by a whopping...

  • 1994 Bugatti EB110 Super Sport at RM Auctions Paris, 2019
    1994 Bugatti EB110 Super Sport with only few hundred miles heads to auction

    A Bugatti EB110 is a rare sight to begin with. The EB110 Super Sport that RM Sotheby's offer on February 6 in Paris is something especially extraordinary. The auctioneer will offer up in Paris an EB110 Super Sport with just 569 miles on the odometer. The Super Sport model bowed six months after the...

  • 1987 Ferrari F40 LM
    1987 Ferrari F40 LM headed to auction block

    It's hard to top the Ferrari F40, but the F40 LM race car headed to the RM Sotheby's Paris auction in February makes a convincing effort. This particular F40 LM has an interesting history. It was originally built as a pre-production car but was sold to former Le Mans and IMSA driver Rene Herzog in...

  • 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS Conciso
    Ferrari 328 GTS-based Conciso is one weird creation

    Perhaps a Ferrari 328 GTS is simply too standard. If that statement rings true, RM Sotheby's has consigned quite a quirky take on Ferrari's late-'80s sports car. It's called the Conciso, a brainchild of German designer Bernd Michalak. Aside from the radically different shape, the Conciso's body is...

  • Shelby Cobra 427 is up for sale
    This original Shelby Cobra 427 should fetch millions at auction

    It's amazing what you can do if you just think outside the box a little bit. That's what Carroll Shelby did when used a hefty dose of American ingenuity to transform a little British roadster called the AC Bristol into the Shelby Cobra. By ingenuity, of course, we mean a massive V-8 engine. Pairing...

  • Tucker 48 heading to RM Sotheby's auction

    The Tucker Corporation was merely a flash in the late 1940s pan, but it remains an incredibly intriguing story in American automobile history. The company's turmoil, conspiracy, and demise is a story that was documented, with some creative license, in the 1988 motion picture "Tucker: The Man and His Dream," starring Jeff Bridges and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Only 51 Tucker sedans were produced and 47 survive. One very important survivor will grace RM Sotheby's Arizona auction on January 18. It's not only rare, it was Preston Tucker's personal car. The Tucker 48, first dubbed the...

  • 1988 RUF CTR Clubsport
    This minty-fresh 1988 RUF CTR Clubsport is heading to auction

    RUF cars aren't simply re-tuned Porsches. No, no, they're something very special indeed, and this CTR Clubsport is one of the automaker's shining stars from the past. Fortunately for one well-off individual, it's heading to RM Sotheby's Paris auction on February 7. Why is the CTR Clubsport so...

  • Special Lamborghini Huracán donated to Pope Francis for charity
    Lamborghini gives the Pope a Huracán for charity

    Pope Francis received a new set of wheels on Wednesday, but the car is quite different from any other Popemobile. That's because it's a Lamborghini Huracán, an Italian supercar with 571 horsepower. His Holiness won't hold attend any track days, though. Instead, Lamborghini's gift will be...

  • Michael Schumacher’s Ferrari F2001 race car from the 2001 Formula 1 World Championship
    A rare chance to own one of Michael Schumacher's F1 race cars

    Michael Schumacher has a place in history as one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers of all time.

  • Ferrari LaFerrari prototype sold for $2.25 million
    Someone paid $2.25M for a Ferrari LaFerrari prototype that can't be driven legally

    The Ferrari LaFerrari consistently commands big bucks no matter when one rolls across the auction block, but this example is slightly different. That's because it's one of Ferrari's prototype LaFerraris and can't be registered or legally driven at all. That didn't keep bidders away from dishing out...

  • Blu Tour de France Ferrari Enzo for sale
    Rare blue Ferrari Enzo heading to auction in London

    Sure, Ferrari fans typically prefer their cars red (or reddish-orange) but a few other hues occasionally pop off the assembly line. In the case of this Ferrari Enzo, it's actually been painted multiple times, making it a very rare car among already rare machines. Today, it's finished in Blu Tour de...

  • 1956 Aston Martin DBR1

    Millions of dollars were spent at the auctions that were held during the lead up to this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, but what did those lofty sums buy? Quite a few tremendous machines. We've already highlighted some of the largest transactions that took place during the posh classic car gathering, but below is a list of the top 10 most expensive cars sold during Monterey Car Week. Ready for your eyes to water? 1950 Ferrari 166 MM/212 Export "Uovo" — Sold for $4,510,000 by RM Sotheby's If a vehicle consignment comes with the phrase "one-off," it's bound to fetch a pretty...

  • 2006 Lamborghini Concept S
    A street-legal Lamborghini Concept S is heading to auction

    Concept cars range from "very cool" to "hey, maybe don't try to build that one for real." The 2006 Lamborghini Concept S falls far more into to the cool range of the spectrum. It's a one-off machine that shows the potential for an even crazier variant of the Gallardo, but it never came to be. The...

  • 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe Custom "Scrape"
    'Scrape' custom 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe heading to auction

    Not every custom build becomes an icon, but this 1939 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe transcended all and has become a superstar. It even has a name: "Scrape." And if you like what you see, RM Sotheby's will see the iconic Lincoln off at the Santa Monica auction June 24-25. Why is the Zephyr Scrape so iconic?...

  • 1995 Ferrari F50 for sale
    Ultra-rare black Ferrari F50 heads to the auction block

    The other day we showed you a 1990 Ferrari F40 that is coming up for sale soon. Those cars are rare because Ferrari built just over 1,300 examples. For some that might not be rare enough. If that's the case, then we have another Ferrari that might interest you and your extremely discerning tastes...

  • 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II
    Homologation Special: Cosworth-powered Mercedes headed to auction

    Homologation specials need to happen far more often. Remember when they were a semi-regular thing? You'd have an automaker looking to produce a brutish race car for a given racing series, but that series required the brand to build a handful of examples in street-car form. This resulted in glorious...

  • 1990 Ferrari F40 for sale
    Another Ferrari F40 is heading to auction

    It seems Ferrari F40 owners are keen to move a few units as of late. One of the grandest supercars of all time has been popping up in a number of auctions recently, and we say that's a good thing. Perhaps some will wind up in the hands of folks looking to peel off a few more turns on the odometer...

  • 1964 Porsche 901 Cabriolet Prototype by Karmann

    Long-time Motor Authority readers know the story of Porsche and its 901. The plan was to graduate from the design designated 800-series cars and move into the 900 range. The first car was the 901, which was shown at the Paris Auto Salon in 1964. Peugeot didn't take too kindly to that number scheme as it already sold a number of models that contained a zero as the middle of a three-digit "name." So Porsche swapped the 0 for a 1, and the 911 came to be. Before that fully took hold, however, Porsche built a prototype 901 variant with a folding roof and called it a Cabriolet.

  • 1967 Toyota 2000 GT, from Don Davis Collection, sold at auction for $1.15 million by RM Auctions
    James Bond-Style 1967 Toyota 2000 GT Sells For $1.15 Million

    James Bond may be irretrievably linked to Aston Martins, the DB5 in particular, but he's driven quite a number of other vehicles during his 50-year movie career. Unloved orphans like the AMC Matador may not have been high points of the Bond oeuvre. But the sleek, sexy Japanese sports car he drove...
