This is a list of the most expensive cars sold in auto auctions through the traditional bidding process, consisting of those that attracted headline grabbing publicity, mainly for the high price their new owners have paid. A 1954 Mercedes-Benz race car sold for a record $30 million at an auction in England on July 12, 2013. While collectible cars have been sold privately for more, this is the highest price ever paid for a car at a public auction. The record was previously held by a 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa Prototype which sold at an auction in California in 2011 for $16.4 million. The Mercedes W196R Formula 1 race car, powered by a 2.5-litre 8-cylinder engine, was one of a group of race cars that won 9 World Championship-qualifying Grand Prix races in 1954 and '55. The previous record was $16,390,000 for a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, sold on August 21, 2011 in an auction hosted by Gooding & Company in Pebble Beach Equestrian Center, the site of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach, California, United States.

The 1904 Rolls-Royce 10 hp Two-Seater is currently listed on the Guinness World Records as the most expensive veteran car to be sold, at the price of US$7,254,290 ($8,167,043 in 2014), on a Bonhams auction held at Olympia in London on December 3, 2007.[1]

This list only consists of those that have been sold for at least $3 million in auction sales during a traditional bidding process, inclusive of the mandatory buyers premium and does not include private, unsuccessful (failing to reach its reserve price, incomplete) and out of auction sales.

Common contributing factors[edit]

Common contributing factors affecting the value of auctioned automobiles include:

World economy affecting car values[edit]

Aside those mentioned above, the world economy is the other main factor to its values as classic cars are being regarded as an alternative investment.[16][28]

The market began in the 1970s when used Ferraris was exported to any Italian exotic car dealer in the United States who were willing to buy anything that came to them, then the 1973 oil crisis when prices of exotic cars plummeted rapidly, almost new and higher in the range models frequented in used car lots, a Lamborghini Miura could be bought for $15,000 at that time.[29] A 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider that went on to sell for $4,950,000 in 2009 was offered for sale in the June 1964 issue of Road & Track for US$10,500 ($79,032 in 2014), in the April 1976 issue of Hemmings Motor News, the same car was offered at US$16,750 ($68,714 in 2014).[30] After a period of ups and downs in the 1970s and early 1980s, interest rates eased, meaning exotics once frequent on bedroom walls became suddenly affordable.[29]

During the 1980s boom, investors frequented auctions, causing prices to skyrocket. When cars were sold, they were frequently shifted to storage for investors intending to profit later. The high prices drove enthusiasts away from the market, and cars passed from investor to investor.[16] The 1980s boom was followed by 1990s bust, and the values of classic cars plummeted[31]

According to the November 1997 issue of Car Magazine, the Ferrari F40 was credited for sparking the price speculation craze.[32]

During the height of the Japanese asset price bubble in the late 1980s, when the yen had strengthened from about 300 to the U.S. dollar in 1985 to about 150 by 1989, wealthy Japanese buyers began to buy classic cars for effectively half the previous cost in yen. One example of this in 1989, a Ferrari 250 GTO (3909GT) was privately sold to Takeo Kato for $13,837,500.[29] When the bubble burst, it was sold to Talacrest, an Egham (in Surrey) based Ferrari dealer for $2.7m in 1994,[33] eventually selling onto David Morrison, a London based American for an estimated $3.5 million. It passed on in 2001 to John Mozart, via private sale in exchange of a Ferrari 250 TR, for an estimated $7,000,000.[29]

Although prices have slightly dipped for general classic cars due to the recent recession,[34] prices for high end collector cars have held their value or continued to rise.[2] Since the 1990s recession, values of the most desirable cars have risen in value by 200% or more.[31] The reason for this is unlike the late 1980s, buyers are enthusiasts with knowledge on the products they are interested in.[35]

Between 2005 and 2010, the value of vintage cars have said to increased by 21 per cent, according to Dietrich Hatlapa of the HAGI Index (Historic Automobile Group International), vintage cars have offered annual returns of about 21 per cent over the past five years.[34]

One challenge to owners of expensive cars is the risk of having them damaged in crashes. The most expensive car crash in motoring history appears to have been by Christopher Cox, who crashed while driving his Ferrari 250 GTO and destroyed its front end. The car itself was valued at around $30 million.[36]
