Amelia Island Auctions 2021
Leading up to the annual Amelia Island Concours, Bonhams and RM Sotheby’s held their much-anticipated auctions. These events were particularly welcome this year, as they represented the restart of live auctions and the ability for both buyers and spectators to see the vehicles firsthand. Both auction houses saw strong bidding and sell-through rates of 90% and above. Several vehicles surpassed the million-dollar mark, including iconic pre-war machines like Mercer, Stutz, Duesenberg, and Mercedes-Benz. Of course, at auctions with 7- figure bidding, there are always a few Ferraris around, as was the case at this sale. Here is a look at a sampling of cars that were on the docket.
