It is always fun to report on million dollar Ferraris, but these two auctions had Ferraris made for drivers.

    It is always fun to report on million dollar Ferraris, but these two auctions had Ferraris made for drivers.

    Many of these cars sold for under 100K, all are great driving Ferraris that could be used and enjoyed without causing too much depreciation.

    Let’s be realistic here, none of these Ferraris are going to end up as expensive collectable classics, most have too many miles.

    Will they appreciate? Sure, but an additional 10K or even 20K miles won’t hurt value. Ferraris are meant to be driven!

    A few words regarding the results.

    RM Sotheby’s results include buyers commissions.

    Mecum results may not include buyers commissions as they do not indicate whether prices are hammer price or final all-in price.

    Not all Ferraris from both auctions are represented and no-sale cars were not included.
