Catalogues totalling more than $285 million are set to cross the block at this year’s Amelia Island sales, with the bragging rights going to Gooding & Company’s concours award-winning 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider, estimated to fetch $18,000,000 – 20,000,000. One of only 37 covered-headlight examples, chassis 3099 GT was displayed on Luigi Chinetti’s stand at the 1962 New York International Auto Show and was restored to its original unique Azzurro Metallizzato paintwork in 2004.

RM Sotheby’s are also bringing a California Spider to Amelia, its LWB carries a guide of $9,000,000 – 11,000,000. A track-focused 2010 Pagani Zonda R heads an impressive line-up of hyper cars, the fifth of just 10 Rs built (estimate $4,800,000 – 6,800,000). Upgraded by the Pagani factory in 2014 to 'Revolución’ specification pushing power up to 780bhp, it comes with an invite for the new owner to participate in Pagani’s 2023 Arte in Pista program, a series of track driving experiences bringing Zonda R and Huayra R owners together with Pagani technicians and driving coaches.
