If you’re looking to buy an $8 million vintage Ferrari, Arizona is the place to be every January when the major auction houses offer eye-popping examples for sale.

In Scottsdale in 2013, a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider sold for a record-breaking $8.25 million at Gooding & Co.’s sale, while RM Auctions set another milestone with the sale of a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione for $8.14 million the very same day.

If you just want to ogle some outrageously expensive automobiles, however, you’d need to look elsewhereuntil now.


Next month, the legendary Arizona Biltmore, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, will host the inaugural Arizona Concours d’Elegance on January 12 in the midst of the big-ticket auction.

The event will feature 80 mouthwatering motors from Bugattis and Maseratis to Porsches and Packards.

The vehicles will be on display throughout the day on the 1929 property’s picturesque Squaw Peak Lawn.

Concours judges will award winners in each class category, including vintage, classic, sports, racing and exotics, as well as a hotly contested Best of Show prize.

And you can still buy that $8 million prancing horse if you so desire…
