To car aficionados, Monterey, California, is synonymous with exotic cars. This affiliation is due to the city’s annual Motor Car Week, which will be held from August 15-21. While there will be a spectrum of events featuring luxury autos, the real, must-attend event will be Mecum’s auction on Thursday, August 18 at the Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa on Del Monte Golf Course.
This year’s Mecum auction will be a memorable one to say the least. While Mecum always comprises an exciting lineup of luxury autos, Monterey’s auction seems to be extraordinary. Attendees can expect to see a variety of high-end autos including exotics, traditional and racier autos.
A LaFerrari, 918 Weissach Pack and a McLaren P1 are all among the exotics that will be on display at the Mecum Auction. The LaFerrari, which is a matte black, is one of only three vehicles available in this color, while the 918 Weissach Pack is in bare carbon with plastic wrap. Mecum is expecting to receive upwards of $9 million for all three vehicles.
While some car aficionados appreciate the exotics, they are searching for more traditional autos when coming to these auctions. Traditional vehicles that customers will find at Mecum include a 288 GTO, F40 and a pair of Enzos. Each of the four vehicles are expected to raise more than $2 million each.
If you’re into more racier vehicles, Mecum has you covered as well. They are auctioning off a pair of Porsche 962s, a Daytona 24-hour winner, an original Shelby GT350 Mustang, a Lola Indy car and a Porsche GT2 Evo. Perhaps one of the most intriguing cars on the auction item list includes an Aston Martin Vulcan, which is a part of a limited edition collection of vehicles released by the British car manufacturer in 2015.
Other vehicles being sold at Monterey include a Maserati Ghibli Spyder, Miura P400, Toyota 2000GT, Iso Grifo and a variety of 911s. To see the full auction list for Mecum’s Monterey auction, please click here.
