If you ever have the need to feel financially inferior, the classic car auctions during Monterey Car Week ought to do the trick nicely. And if you aren’t into cars, the watches on the wrists below the raised auction paddles will also have the same disheartening effect on anyone with knowledge of fine time pieces (yah, we said time piece, get over it). The yearly auctions held in conjunction with the world famous Pebble Beach Concourse are known to bring out the most exotic, and of course valuable cars in existence-the bidders, well, these folks have what you could call “resources.” Vehicles are transported from across the globe to roll across the blocks of premier auction houses such as RM Sotheby’s and Gooding & Company.
This year’s auction results not only saw bidders digging deep into their abnormally deep pockets, but also yielded yet another world record auction sale for the same make and model that had the previous world record-the Ferrari 250 GTO.
