We often debate the validity of covering the foreign auctions, especially one from the UK with many RHD Ferraris. While we have many subscribers in the UK we still feel the auction results signify what direction the market is headed.
Taking into account the relative rarity of RHD cars in general the prices realized are not substantially higher than auction values here in America.
Ferraris are a commodity and can be sold anywhere in the world where values may be higher. By bringing you, the subscriber, the world view, you can make informed decisions on value.
