The most expensive cars from this year’s Monterey Car Week auction range from Porsches to a Ford, although the list is heavily dominated by the king of vintage cars: Ferrari.
A McLaren is projected to be this year’s priciest vehicle at the Monterey auctions. It’s estimated to fetch upwards of $23 million for the single unit. Hagerty, an insurance company for collector vehicles, has projected that the six auctions during Monterey Car Week 2019 will finish with total sales of over $380 million, according to CNBC.
Last year’s auctions finished with sales totaling $371 million. There, the most expensive car auctioned was a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO that went for a record-breaking $48.4 million.
Whether you’re looking to bid or curious about the cars that bidders are about to spend millions of dollars on, here are the 30 most expensive cars being auctioned off this week:
1994 McLaren F1 ‘LM-Specification’: $21 million to $23 million
