CARS EVER SOLD

AT AUCTION

As three pedals and manual transmissions are quickly becoming coveted commodities of the past, it’s no surprise that the residual values of the most rare and iconic classic cars continue to soar to stratospheric levels. Join us as we look back on some of the most stunning, stirring and sensationally expensive cars ever to be sold under the hammer at auction. Expect a share of Maranello’s finest, dashing and distinguished Aston Martins and some exquisite post-war racers. As most of these record-breaking auctions have happened in North America, prices are displayed in USD. WORDS SAM HEXTER PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF THE MANUFACTURERS SPONSORED BY C. DE SALAMANCA
