2014 LaFerrari leads the pack with $4,700,000.

Last week’s Mecum Daytime Auction in Monterey, California was a great venue to check out a plethora of hugely appealing cars go under the hammer for sums stretching well into seven figures. The most valuable of them all was a 2014 LaFerrari painted in Nero DS Opaco. One of the only three to come as standard in this color and driven for only 211 miles (339 kilometers), the sinister-looking supercar fetched $4,700,000, well above the auction house’s estimate of $3.9M to $4.5M.

1966 Ford GT40 MkI


On second place we find a 1966 Ford GT40 MkI, the very first road-going model that was delivered in North America. It was actually a Ford test and evaluation car initially, before serving as Ford North America’s official promotional GT40. The car was recently the subject of a thorough restoration and is almost entirely original, including the metallic chrome silver paint discovered underneath the blue & orange Gulf livery applied back in 1981 for a Gulf television ad. Despite being 50 years old, it has covered just 11,000 miles (17,702 km). The winning bid stood at $4.4M, within Mecum Auction’s estimate of $4M to $5M.

2003 Ferrari Enzo


Yet another Ferrari managed to finish in the top three of the most expensive cars auctioned. It was a 2003 Enzo that had only one owner and just 2,050 miles (3,300 km) on the clock. The former prancing horse flagship was delivered new to Ferrari of San Francisco with a lovely Corsa Red exterior combined with a contrasting Nero interior cabin. The car is well-documented, including service records, copies of the original invoice and certificate of origin, window sticker, and it’s also included in the Ferrari Classiche Certification. It grabbed $3M at the auction, thus within the estimate of $2.5M to $3.5M.

Here is the full top ten of the cars that were sold at the 2016 Mecum Daytime Auction in Monterey, CA last week.

Overall sales totals reached $50 million at the 2016 Mecum Daytime Auction in Monterey, Calif., with strong individual sales topped by several cars that reached or exceeded the million-dollar mark. Headlined this year by three vehicles that hammered at $4.7 million, $4.4 million and $3 million, respectively, the Mecum Daytime Auction hosted a total of 704 high-end classic and collector cars, all of which crossed the Mecum auction block Aug. 18-20. Overall sales totals again surpassed the previous year’s totals, this time by a leap of more than $5 million.

The headlining Modern Speed Collection consisted of 11 of the most exclusive, powerful and technologically advanced vehicles on the planet. Of these rare and gorgeous machines, eight of them sold for a total of $6,270,000 in hammer sales. Three from the collection brought individual sales of $1 million or higher including a 2014 McLaren P1, a 2011 Ferrari 599 SA Aperta and a 2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4.
