BLENHEIM, Ontario (28 February 2019) –
RM Auctions has released the digital preview catalogue for the company’s 17th annual Fort Lauderdale sale, 29-30 March, led by a group of modern sports performance and supercars. Regarded as South Florida’s premier collector car auction, the two-day sale—held at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center–will feature more than 350 quality collector cars along with a selection of automobilia, ranging from American classics to European sports cars, muscle, hot rods, customs and modern collectibles.

Leading the latest high-performance highlights for RM Auctions’ Fort Lauderdale auction are two supercar icons of the 21st century—a 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari and a 2008 Koenigsegg CCX. The LaFerrari, one of just 499 built, is a low-mileage example of Ferrari’s first hybrid hypercar, capable of producing a combined 949 hp and showing a mere 600 miles from new. Presented in as-new condition throughout, the car is finished in eye-catching Giallo Modena with Scuderia Ferrari door shields, a black roof, and stunning black leather interior with yellow accents and carbon fiber trim (Est. $3,200,000 - $3,500,000). The Koenigsegg CCX on offer is the first American-specification example delivered to a U.S. customer, significant in the sense that Christian von Koenigsegg had set out to build a viable global-market supercar compliant with stringent U.S. safety and emission standards. Finished in black and retaining its dark silver Dymag wheels and matching “Top Gear” rear wing, the CCX has been upgraded by Koenigsegg to 980 hp and has covered just over 1,000 miles (Est. $950,000 - $1,200,000).

“Last year, our Fort Lauderdale sale saw a marked increase in the quality of cars offered along with a significant increase in international interest, a momentum we hope to continue and build on in 2019,” said Gord Duff, Global Head of Auctions, RM Sotheby’s Group. “We have curated the Fort Lauderdale auction to new heights, gathering our most valuable and diverse offering of collector cars yet—with nearly half of the entries offered without reserve, making this an event not to be missed on the spring auction calendar. We look forward to welcoming collectors and enthusiasts old and new to South Florida.”

Completing the lineup of modern performance automobiles set for the Fort Lauderdale sale, are:

  • 1993 Jaguar XJ220, Jaguar’s most unique supercar of the 1990s. This highly original example is one of just 282 models produced and has covered less than 7,800 km from new (Est. $425,000-$475,000, offered without reserve);
  • 2018 Porsche 911 Turbo S “Exclusive Series”, one of 500 built and one of just 200 marked for U.S. delivery. The 911 is presented in Golden Yellow Metallic with carbon fiber front hood and roof accents (Est. $375,000-$425,000);
  • 2017 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV Coupe, stunning in a black and gold color combination. Exceedingly well-optioned, this is believed to be the last example of the model built for the U.S. (Est. $500,000 - $600,000);
  • 2018 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso 70th Anniversary, a bespoke Ferrari Tailor Made Collection showpiece, this is the only GTC4 Lusso finished in the commemorative 1951 212 Inter Vignale livery (Est. $330,000 - $400,000);

  • 2006 Ford GT, complete with all four available options, one of only 292 produced in Mark II Black with Silver Le Mans stripes, and showing less than 600 miles from new (Est. $300,000-$350,000, offered without reserve);
