RM Auctions, the official auction house of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, is gearing up for its amazing Amelia Island sale on March 10 in Florida.
Held in conjunction with the famed Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, the single-day sale will lift the gavel on more than 100 high-caliber automobiles, including 10 examples expected to exceed $1 million.
Headlining the offerings is an exceptional 1956 Ferrari 250 GT Coupe Speciale featuring rare 410-Superamerica-style, Pinin Farina Berlinetta coachwork.

One of just four examples built, the car remains unique among its peers thanks to numerous special-order items including gauges, a telescopic steering wheel, high bolster seats, twin fuel tanks with twin fillers, and a custom lowered driver’s window crank.
Immaculately presented, it carries Ferrari Classiche certification and is a multiple award-winner, most recently receiving a “First in Class Platinum” award and judged “Most Elegant Ferrari” at Cavallino in January 2012.
The bottom line? It’ll cost you $1.6 million or so to park in your garage.
Or you could just buy a hundred Fiat 500s…
