Lamborghini Miura P400 SV, one of the few that found no buyer.

The event of RM Sothebys in Scottsdale yielded great results. No great record to look at, but with a list of lots very exclusive and elitist, full of models and rare classics, it was expected the million-dollar bids for a large part of the lots.

In total, managed to exceed the million dollars, 16 batches, the vast majority of them from european brands. Only a few failed to reach their reserve prices and were left without a buyer. Among these we can highlight a Lamborghini Miura P400 SV, with a value above 2 million, and a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing of 1955, whose estimates suggesting between 1.5 and 1.50 million.

to The contrary, that the auction of Barrett-Jackson, as always, the more media, in RM Sothebys was not reached, a huge sum total. But it is logical if we consider that RM only got less than 160 units compared to the close to 1,700 copies, providing one of the Barrett-Jackson for much of the week. Where, in addition, only a couple of models managed to find a buyer with bids above the million.
