BLENHEIM, ONTARIO, CANADA – December 2, 2022 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – After an unprecedented and record-breaking year, RM Sotheby’s is thrilled to begin the 2023 calendar by returning to the Arizona Biltmore & Spa in Phoenix on 26 January for its 24th annual Arizona sale.

Early Highlights 

2014 Ferrari LaFerrari – Finished in Blu Elettrico over Crema leather, this is a truly unique example of an era-defining modern Ferrari hypercar. Delivered new to Ferrari super-collector Greg Whitten, its odometer indicates just 3,185 miles. The LaFerrari is estimated at $4,000,000 – $4,500,000. 

1965 Shelby 427 Competition Cobra – CSX 3011 is truly a triple threat of Shelby significance: It is the only Cobra to have featured in the Cobra Caravan tour, a major Hollywood movie starring Elvis, and in period competition. The Cobra is estimated at $3,000,000 – $3,600,000.

2017 Ford GT – Offered from its first and only owner, this Ford GT is presented in virtually as-new condition throughout, having been driven less than 380 miles. Finished in Liquid Grey with Ingot Silver stripes, the GT rides on silver wheels with matching silver calipers, and it is optioned with the gloss-finish carbon fiber package. Inside, it boasts the “Dark Energy” interior theme, a $25,000 option, and is also equipped with the optional leather-wrapped steering wheel. This GT is estimated at $850,000 – $950,000.

Gord Duff, Global Head of Auctions, said: “Last year, when RM Sotheby’s came to Arizona to kick off the auction calendar, the collector car community was closely monitoring how the sale would perform after the global turmoil of 2020 and 2021. RM Sotheby’s had a great sale, and the momentum only continued to build through the rest of 2022. We are excited to return to Arizona with the most knowledgeable and talented team in the business. From the stunning LaFerrari to a truly special Competition Cobra, Arizona 2023 will have an offering for every type of collector.”
