Actually a pretty good deal for a Type-S 6MT with under 70,000 miles on the clock.

I think if it was a situation where I needed a new car I would have thrown down enough to get it. It otherwise would have been a purchase to keep until the 04 finally stops.

OK, I get it. 1 of 1k examples in the US market. But almost $31k for this?

That's a pricey bit of nostalgia right there ....

27k-Mile 1998 Acura Integra Type R

I would love to own one of those but agree the prices they have started to command is crazy. Agree a TT Supra is a better purchase at this point.

Geez, for that money I could buy a 2005 E46 M3 with the ZCP package; maybe my brain is bent or something, but WAAAAY more desirable.

Turn of the century Japanese cars are skyrocketing in value right now. All the people who weren't of age back in the F&F days are now all able to afford these things so the values are through the roof.

^ - Of course its going to be subjective and based largely on personal preference

For me - having owned a 94 TT Supra and an Integra (granted not a Type R but I did drop in a jdm motor and tranny, upgrade to Type R brakes, etc) and loving both cars...I'd hunt for another Supra. Although if I had the space and had permission to car shop (I've since gotten married) I'd just focus on an NSX...although that probably supports your of age comment.

True - but at least I recognize the Integra shouldn't be in that category

Bonhams has not disclosed the estimated price, but given that it sold Ayrton Senna's 1993 Monaco Grand Prix-winning McLaren-Cosworth Ford MP4/8A for €4,197,500 ($5,015,609) last year, somewhere north of $5 million can be expected.




FW-15A (not the auction car)

Regarding the ITR, it's not necessarily desirability but rarity. ITRs get swapped, modded, abused, stolen and stripped clean. Championship white is probably the most desirable color as well.

“As new” Ferraris from the Ming Collection and several other modern supercars have been consigned to RM Sotheby’s Monterey Auction, the sales company has announced.

A 2006 Ferrari FXX, one of 30 track-only developmental prototypes based on the Ferrari Enzo and “presented from its original owner and representing the first example to come to public market in several years.” The car has recently been serviced and was on the track only once, at Ferrari’s Fiorano circuit during its delivery event. The car comes with three FXX Programme travel cases containing factory track support equipment as well as an unused factory race suit and helmet. RM Sotheby’s expects the car to sell for $2.85 million to $3.25 million.

A 1991 Ferrari F40 with Ferrari Classiche Certification confirming its numbers-matching status. The two-owner car has been part of the collection for nearly 20 years and driven only 1,705 miles since new. ($1.5 million to $1.8 million).

A 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi that still has original factory plastic delivery film on its door sills and has been driven only 2,500 miles ($350,000 to $425,000).

A 1985 Ferrari 308 GTSi driven only 4,000 miles by its two owners. ($100,000 to $150,000).

A 2007 Ferrari F430 Spider F1 purchased new by the Ming Collection. ($200,000 to $250,000).

A 2013 Ferrari 458 Spider with such custom options as Novitec springs, Akrapovic exhaust and carbo-fiber dash pods. ($225,000 to $275,000).

A 1997 Ferrari 355 Spider driven only 704 miles. ($125,000 to $150,000).








Also on the docket from other consignors are an “as-new” 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari ($3 million to $3.4 million); a pair of 2005 Porsche Carrera GTs, one in Metallic Orange and still showing original delivery mileage on its odometer (1.2 million to $1.5 million), and the other in Silver Metallic with Ascot Brown interior ($650,000 to $725,000); a 2009 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 with only 1,200 miles driven ($1.1 million to $1.3 million); and a “nearly new” 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante driven only 13 miles ($750,000 to $900,000).

Want to own one of the most significant race cars on the planet? You'll soon get the chance: Michael Schumacher's V-10-powered Ferrari F2002 Formula 1 car, which he used to secure his fifth driver's title, is coming up for auction via RM Sotheby's in November 2019.

...

RM Sotheby's doesn't list an estimated sale price on its site, though if it does as well as Schumacher's 2001 championship-winning car sold in 2017, expect it to go for somewhere north of $7 million.

It’s basically a piece of history, as this 2007 F1.07-06B car was driven by a couple of well known drivers back then. The most famous now is Sebastian Vettel, who drives for Ferrari today and has since claimed four titles in Formula 1. The car was also driven by Nick Heidfeld and Robert Kubica, both of them more than decent drivers back in the day. And before you get too excited about the prospect of buying this car, a few notes have to be made.

The ad doesn’t exactly say this car was one of those used in the competition which could point to the fact that it was, instead, used in development. Furthermore, it doesn’t have an engine right now, but everything else is still in place. Therefore, you still get the transmission, engine frame, suspension, fuel tank and even the original steering wheel, which is nothing to scoff at. The ad also claims the car is in Switzerland at the moment and it looks like an engine could be provided if you can afford it.



Speaking of which, there’s no price tag listed on the website but those interested in such rarities can definitely afford to pay whatever a 2007 Formula 1 car could be worth. The market for older and newer F1 cars is apparently on the rise so some people might view this as an investment.

LS swap it.



Btw, anytime I see past F1 cars, I realize how gigantic and ugly the new cars are.

The Ferrari is worth bidding on since it puts you into an elite clientele within' Ferrari and they'll help keep the car running/teach you how to drive it.

The BMW though, is a nice art piece. Even if you could source the engine, I'd be surprised if BMW would offer any help at keeping it running. They've been out of the game 10 years now and sold the team back to Sauber.

Neighbor at our old house had a '92 Silver 348 Spider & '99 Yellow 355 F1 Spider in his garage.

We moved before I got a chance for a passenger lap in them. Should cruise back by there

When he bought the 355, I offered to pilot the 348, if he ever needed both in the same place
