We’ve been telling you about the Pinnacle Portfolio for months.  25 stupendous cars belonging to one mystery guy were going on the block at RM Sotheby’s Monterey Week auction.   And they did, this past Thursday for a total exceeding $75 million.

Ferrari grabbed four of the top five spots.

A 1964 Ferrari 250 LM with racing provenance galore lead the way at $17.6 million.  A 250 LM is generally acknowledged to be among the top Ferrari of all time… let alone this one was the last Ferrari of any kind to win Le Mans overall. A 2005 Enzo was the last Enzo ever made and was originally bestowed to Pope John Paul II, who sold it for charity.  It went for a very charitable $6.05 million.  Grabbing $3.3 million each was a 1994 F40 LM racecar and a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4.

1994 F40: $3.3 million


1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4: $3.3 million

Keeping pace with the Ferrari 250 LM was the 1998 McLaren F1 LM-Specification for  $13.75 million. It is one of only two ever built with the LM spec package, which included a 680 hp racing version of the V12.

Do you really think Donald Trump bought it?  You can see the entire Pinnacle Portfolio together for the last time by clicking Pinnacle Portfolio.

Also thought for the day: what does the driver think about sitting in that Ferrari 250 LM on the auction block, as the bidding soars past $10 million, and then past $15 million.  Is he thinking I sure better not get any crumbs from this Subway sandwich on the seats?!?  Just asking.
