Top Online Auction Sale
The highest sale at online auction this year was this LaFerrari Aperta at Bring a Trailer. Only 210 LaFerrari Apertas were made, and while we’ve seen 5 others cross the auction block at live auctions, seeing this one sell online in 2022 certainly shows the strength of the online auction market today!
The F40 was one of our Top Markets of 2022, as its CMB increased 33% from $1.66M to $2M this year. It’s no surprise that this particularly clean and low-mileage (1,832) example was sold for a 132% net gain over it’s previous sale.
The Porsche 911 is one of the most popular models for car enthusiasts around the world – and in a year where we could all use a little pick-me-up, it’s fun to see this “Sally Special” hit the top of the 911 chart.
The H1 was also one of our Top Markets of 2022, as its CMB increased 22% from $84K to $103K this year. This particular build was customized with the help of Predator, Inc. and Canepa – showcasing the best of the restomod trend that we’ve seen the past few years.
