    Followed a great part of the Artcurial Auction of today.
    Well, a considerable part of the F-market is clearly imploding...
    Sad to see a 512BBi go at 230.000 € and a 512BB (carb) for even less, at 220.000 €, for instance.

    Lusso struggled to get to 800,000 No Sale. Did this car have an issue?

    So what happened at RM with some of those cars, including the modern one-off, that were hammered sold and are now still for sale? Was the assistant banging that hammer drunk?

    Well, at least for the BBi (according to Hammerprice), it hammered at mid-estimate, so the result was not unexpected.

    I don’t know about the market in general, as I have only been tracking Daytonas and Boxers, but from the buyer’s sided, I think BBi prices have been at the quarter-mega-buck level for a while now. Sellers don’t want to let them go for that, but if the car is going to move, looking for a lot more is going to take a while...

    So I don’t think these results constitute an “implosion”... Or at least not a new one... :)

    So about $18MM USD after commission. Even assuming you were going to spend money repainting the car, that sure seems like a bargain to me.

    Did they modify something, or are you just pointing out the rules of Classiche?
