RM Sotheby’s returned to Fort Lauderdale for the company’s 19th annual sale. The sale saw strong interest in a range of marques, with $16,974,523 in total sales.

Owned from new by Kid Rock, the 2005 Ford GT has now found its second owner as it sold for $638,000 this past weekend. The desirable four-option example wearing Mark IV Red with full stripes turned heads and went to its new owner with a Ford GT poster signed by legendary designer Camilo Pardo, as well as a guitar autographed by Kid Rock himself.

Not far behind the Ford GT was the 1984 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 S by Bertone, offered from The Rey Collection. Dramatically finished in Nero Tenebre over a Rosso full leather interior, this well-preserved example crossed the block showing less than 9,000 miles, bringing $632,500. Rounding out the top three sales was the 1998 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster. Wearing a silver metallic paint over a black interior and sporting the appealing Series I styling with pop-up headlamps, this one-owner car is one of only 200 Diablo VT Roadsters produced. It crossed the block with just over 3,000 miles showing on the odometer and sold to its second owner for $467,500.

The Rey Collection commanded strong interest from bidders, with 91% of the lots selling on the block. Following the Countach was the 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi, finished in the archetypical color combination of Rosso Corsa over beige leather and indicating fewer than 7,208 miles; this example benefitted from a complete restoration in 2015 and sold for $462,000. Another notable lot from The Rey Collection was the 1972 Maserati Ghibli SS 4.9 Coupe by Ghia. One of only 413 Ghibli SS 4.9 coupes made in left-hand-drive configuration and retaining its numbers-matching engine, this example, finished in Dark Blue Metallic over a red leather interior, sold for $352,000. Selling for almost double its pre-auction estimate, the limited-production 1990 Riva Ferrari 32, the result of an incredible collaboration between Italy’s preeminent boatbuilder and the storied automaker, made waves in the auction room. The 28th of only 40 produced and boasting a top speed of 62-mph, the Riva sold for an outstanding $299,000. The Rey Collection saw a total of $3.8 million.
