Yesterday’s Top Two Sales

2021 Ferrari SF90 Assetto Fiorano $525,000

No one can deny the allure of this Ferrari, but it’s clear that its market value has taken a hit over the last 18 months. The buyer has potentially snagged a half-million-dollar 'bargain'—a stark contrast to the $700k+ these were fetching just 18 months ago. Will their value climb again? It’s tough to predict.

1994 Porsche 911 Speedster 6-Speed $308,964

There’s simply nothing on the market that matches this car. Combine RUF’s magic with a Porsche 911 Speedster, and you've got a recipe for a winning ride—a stunning vehicle and a solid investment. This 1994 Speedster, jazzed up by RUF, isn’t just a car; it's a goldmine. With RUF's stamp of approval and a certificate to prove it, the car’s modifications are not just verified for authenticity but are also a massive boost to its value as a collectible.

Dressed in a striking Ferrari Rosso Mugello repaint and boasting serious performance tweaks, this Speedster is as rare as it is exhilarating. With only 5,400 kilometers clocked post-modification, it merges rarity with rip-roaring performance and a strong chance for value appreciation. For collectors looking to drive something extraordinary while banking on future gains, this car is a masterpiece, ticking all the right boxes for both thrill and investment.

Sale of the Day

Deal of the day goes to this jaw-dropping 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing 120th Anniversary Edition that just changed hands for $109,000. It's not just any Cadillac; this beast rocks a supercharged V8 and boasts a mere 2,800 miles on the clock, wrapped in an exclusive Electric Blue that commands attention wherever it roars.

This Blackwing isn’t just a powerhouse; it's a collector's dream with its Carbon Fiber 1 and 2 Packages adding just the right touch of sporty flair and aerodynamic efficiency. And let’s not forget, it’s paired with a 6-speed manual, making it a rarity in today’s auto scene—truly a nod to the enthusiasts who crave that hands-on driving experience.

Let’s talk the price tag. At $109,000, this Blackwing is snapping back to more realistic figures. Remember, it's not long ago that cars like this have fetched much higher in a post COVID market. This sale isn't just a win for the buyer; it’s a hint that we might be returning to more sensible pricing in the high-end segment, well at least for this car!

Whether this trend will hold is anyone’s guess, but for now, let’s just appreciate the deal that went down. A stunner of a car, at a price that doesn’t soar into the stratosphere—this is what smart collecting looks like.

High-End Auctions

Today’s high-end highlight is none other than the 2022 Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, currently commanding a hefty $3,331,000 with 8 days still left on the clock. This exquisite machine isn't just another high-ticket item; it's a beacon in the collector car universe, boasting the prestigious status of being one of only 60 examples ever crafted.

Rewind 18 months, and you’d find a similar model fetching $3.8 million, reflecting its nearly untouched condition and extraordinary pedigree. With this Chiron's MSRP originally soaring just over $4 million, our seller might hope for a final hammer price nudging into the $4 million territory. However, given the car's current bid, it's positioned well within the realm of expectations for today’s market.

This Chiron isn’t just about raw power and stunning looks; decked out with a $225k Pur Sport Split Finish and powered by a formidable quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine, it epitomizes the pinnacle of automotive innovation and luxury. But as we often see with high-caliber auctions like this, the real action tends to spark in the closing hours. It’s typical for bids to skyrocket in the final moments, making the current bid a promising start for what’s sure to be a thrilling finale.

With 8 days left to go, we’ll keep our eyes peeled to see how this auction unfolds, likely culminating in a flurry of last-minute bids that could push this Bugatti to expected, if not extraordinary, final sale numbers.

Talking of the higher-end auctions, in yesterday's poll, we asked you to choose your favorite from three options. Not surprisingly, over 50%+ of you selected the RUF, which is also one of our top picks here at TDV.

Potential Bargain Of The Day

Today’s potential bargain of the day spotlight shines on a classic 1984 BMW 635CSi, currently catching bids with a high of $7,900. This European-market coupe isn't just a pretty face; it's a car with a story and some serious cool factor.

First off, the effort involved in obtaining a U.S. title for this beauty has already been tackled, which is no small feat and adds considerable value right off the bat. Coupled with that, the seller has been less responsive, possibly deterring some potential bidders, which sets up a prime opportunity for a savvy buyer to swoop in.

This 635CSi isn’t just another vintage car; it comes equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission, making it a genuine driver’s car. The black exterior and beige interior provide a classic BMW aesthetic that's both sleek and timeless. Though it sports some modifications and needs a bit of TLC, this car holds immense appeal due to its rarity and the intrinsic value of its storied lineage.

Why is this car so cool? It embodies the spirit of 80s luxury and performance, making it a wonderful candidate for a collector or enthusiast looking to restore and cherish a piece of automotive history. With its relatively low current bid and the auction ending today, this BMW 635CSi is a golden opportunity for someone looking for a project that promises not only a return on investment but also a unique joy in the driving experience it offers.
