FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – March 10, 2022 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – RM Sotheby’s adds significant cars to its Fort Lauderdale lineup, including a Ford GT owned by Kid Rock and a low mileage, Porsche Carrera GT. As single-owner collections continue to grow the sale, it is not one to be missed.

Owned from new by superstar, Kid Rock, the 2005 Ford GT will cross the block in Fort Lauderdale with only 3,096 miles on the clock. Finished in Mark IV Red with full stripes, this desirable four-option example boasts painted racing stripes, forged aluminum BBS wheels, red-painted brake calipers, and the upgraded McIntosh stereo system and subwoofer. With its stunning retro-inspired design and breathtaking power, the Ford GT has been a highly sought-after model since its release. This specific GT will go to its new owner with a Ford GT poster signed by celebrated designer Camilo Pardo and inscribed with, “To my buddy Kid Rock ‘One for the road’,” as well as a special guitar autographed by Kid Rock himself (Estimate: $500,000 – $575,000).

Joining the highly sought-after American supercar on the block is a German legend that is increasing in value daily, a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. Finished in the signature shade of GT Silver Metallic over dark grey leather with a custom-tailored carbon fiber trim, this example shows fewer than 1,314 miles at the time of cataloguing. This rare modern masterpiece is equally suitable for concours exhibition and driving enjoyment, and will go to its new owner with the original window sticker and matching luggage (Estimate: $1,975,000 – $2,200,000).

Further adding to the desirability of The Rey Collection, an additional four lots have been added. Among the last of the coachbuilt luxury cars is this 1947 Delahaye 135 M Cabriolet. Beautifully presented with an older restoration and built on a competition proven chassis, this example runs significantly well and is estimated at $225,000 – $275,000. Believed to be one of just 20 left in existence, this 1957 Ford Fairlane Skyliner ‘F-Code’ boasts a recent frame-off restoration and is equipped with the original Paxton supercharger, fender skirts, and continental kit, and boasts a Raven Black exterior over a black and white interior (Estimate: $170,000 – $200,000). One of only four known survivors, this rare and fascinating 1950 Fiat 1100 Cabriolet by Stabilimenti Farina has been mechanically improved and runs as intended (Estimate: $100,000 – $125,000). Rounding up The Rey Collection is a well-preserved 1993 Ferrari Mondial T wearing Rosso Corsa over tan leather with only two owners from new and showing under 5000 miles (Estimate: $80,000 – $90,000).

A Private Collection of nine cars will go under the hammer March 25-26, with most of the collection representing American classics and some of Detroit’s finest tire shredding muscle from the ‘60s and ‘70s. A 1968 Shelby GT500 KR Fastback will lead the collection across the block. Wearing Lime Gold paint over a saddle interior and being one of only 101 ordered in this paint and trim specification, this example has been fully restored and will be accompanied by the original build sheet and a deluxe Marti report (Estimate: $200,000 – $230,000). A 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6 will join the Shelby, strutting Black Cherry Paint over a saddle Vinyl interior. This numbers-matching example has been completely restored and recently received a paint correction and complete engine rebuild (Estimate: $200,000 – $225,000). Another notable lot from the collection is a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air ‘Fuel-Injected’ Convertible. Painted in Matador Red over a red and silver interior, a frame-off restoration was just completed on this rare example which proved the car to be a very solid California car from new. This Bel Air will cross the block equipped with a continental kit, fender skirts, and correct spinner wheel covers (Estimate: $170,000 – $200,000).
