From a 1949 Bentley Racing Car to a 2008 Art Car
Must-see automobiles are heading to Florida for RM Sotheby’s Auction for 6-7 April. From a 1949 Bentley Racing Car to a 2008 Art Car, these may only come around once.
The RM Sotheby’s: Fort Lauderdale sale is one of RM’s most diverse events. Long considered one of South Florida’s premier automotive auctions, this year’s sale is headlined by two important automobiles: Mercedes-Benz 300 SLs, a Gullwing and a Roadster, from nearly 90 years of combined single ownership.
Mercedes-Benz 300 SLs (featured image) is being offered on behalf of its long-term owner since 1968. This 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing is one of the very last of its production line. It displays a host of unique late model upgrades, including the full leather interior and Becker-Mexico radio. Never entirely restored, this car retains an original interior that displays a fantastic patina. It is being sold with 100 per cent of the hammer proceeds benefitting the Jackson, Michigan YMCA.
1949 Bentley B Special Speed 8
Few automobiles are as beloved by enthusiasts as the 6½-Liter Bentley racing cars. The success of these engines established Bentley as the iconic racing car of the early 1930s. The car offered here is a truly stunning drivable homage to those early racing Bentleys. It was built from Bentley and Rolls-Royce components for the consignor by Racing Green Engineering Limited of Carmarthenshire, Wales, in 2011.
1949 Bentley B Special Speed 8 by Racing Green Engineering | Estimate $325,000–375,000.
1953 Cadillac Eldorado
In 1953, General Motors introduced a series of limited-production specialty convertibles, including the Cadillac Eldorado. At $7,750, nearly $65,000 today, the Eldorado convertible was the most expensive car offered by Cadillac for the 1953 model year. It was truly exclusive, and with just 532 cars built, there simply weren’t enough to satisfy the tremendous demand. Today the 1953 Eldorado remains one of the finest pure American designs from the pre-Jet Age years.
1953 Cadillac Eldorado | Estimate $220,000–270,000.
1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster
At the 1957 Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced a convertible version of the celebrated 300 SL “Gullwing,” the 300 SL Roadster. The new roadster was above all a more refined car than its winged predecessor. Never fully restored but always maintained, this particular model is a very special late-production European-headlight, disc-brake, alloy-block 300 SL roadster, in striking colours, offered from one wonderful long-term home to another.
1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster | Estimate $1,200,000–1,500,000
2006 Ford GT
As part of the Ford Motor Company centennial celebration, Ford debuted the retro-styled GT. A modern homage to Ford’s racing heritage, the car celebrated the highly successful GT40 program of the 1960s. This car, one of only 222 produced in Centennial White for 2006, has had one owner and shows just 10.8 total miles. This may well be the last opportunity to buy a “new” 2006 Ford GT.
2006 Ford GT | Estimate $300,000–350,000
2008 Ferrari F430 Challenge “Art Car” by Ben Levy
This 2008 Ferrari F430 Challenge is one of three cars painted by artists for a charity auction at Art Basel 2015. Renowned British Pop artist Ben Levy turned this car’s carbon-fiber body into an eye-catching contemporary artwork on wheels with his signature hand-painted graffiti. The “canvas” itself is a desirable and race-proven F430 Challenge, just as ready for the track as it is for the gallery.
