Rand Luxury will host its inaugural auction at The Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn Harbor, New York on 12 October, with a catalogue spanning pre-war classics through to modern hypercars. Star attraction is a 2017 Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 with a pre-sale estimate of $3,000,000 – 3,300,000. Built to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ferruccio Lamborghini, the Centenario was produced in a limited run of 20 coupes and 20 roadsters – Rand’s car being only one of 6 coupes supplied to North America.
Other exotica includes an unregistered 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder with just 12 miles on the clock (estimate $1,950,000 – 2,100,000); a 2,925-mile US-spec 2008 Bugatti Veyron (estimate $1,295,000 – 1,700,000); and a one-of-49 2008 Koenigsegg CCX showing 1,143 miles (estimate $1,395,000 – 1,600,000).
A matching-numbers 1930 Bentley Speed Six Sports Tourer – previously owned by the noted collector Dr Fred Simeone – tops the entries at Bonhams’ Philadelphia sale on 7 October – being held, appropriately, at the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum (estimate $450,000 – 650,000).
Significant brass era machinery due to go under the hammer includes an ex-Harrah Collection 1913 Pope-Hartford Model 33 50HP Touring (estimate $275,000 – 325,000); a 1913 Marmon Model 48 48HP Speedster, believed to be one of only two surviving examples (estimate $250,000 – 300,000); and a circa 1904 Pope-Toledo 24hp Rear Entrance Tonneau which carried off an award at the 2001 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance following its restoration by Stu Laidlaw of Connecticut (estimate $120,000 – 150,000).
Hershey once again hosts RM Auctions, back for its 13th annual two-day sale on 10-11 October with a number of cars consigned from prominent collectors. Heading the roster is a well-known 1930 Cadillac V-16 Sport Phaeton which appeared in the 1964 film The Carpetbaggers, driven by Alan Ladd, with a guide of $900,000 – 1,100,000.
Jewel in the crown among the 14-car Jack Dunning Collection is an award-winning 1931 Marmon Sixteen Coupe by LeBaron, with only four owners from new and believed to be one of just six extant (estimate $650,000 – 850,000).
