A rare 2017 Lamborghini Aventador LP 740-4 S that sold for $440,000 topped the sales charts at Mecum’s July 6-9 Summer Special Auction in Orlando, Fla.
Sales reached $34.8 million as 869 vehicles changed hands in Mecum’s second three-Day classic and collector Car auction in the Orange County Convention Center.
Though there were no vintage race cars in the mix, the top 10 sellers list otherwise reflected the diverse selection on offer: Just behind the aforementioned 9,200-mile Lamborghini was a 2005 Ford GT that sold for $379,500 followed by a quartet of Chevrolets: a highly optioned and concours-restored 1959 Impala Convertible that brought $319,000; a split-window Corvette that sold for $308,000; and two custom 1950s (’55 and ’56) Nomads that brought $225,500 each.
Rounding out the top 10 were a 55-mile 1987 Buick GNX and a 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback that brought $225,500 and $220,00 respectively, then two European sports cars that each brought $214,500: a 1,700-mile 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo S and a 2016 Lamborghini Huracan.
Mecum’s next live auction event will be held July 27-30 in Harrisburg, Pa., and will feature approximately 1,200 classic and collector cars on offer, followed by Mecum’s annual Daytime Auction in Monterey, Calif., to be held Aug. 18-20, with 600 vehicles and 100 vintage and antique motorcycles on the docket.
