BLENHEIM, Ontario, 25 January, 2021
On Friday, 22 January, RM Sotheby’s kicked off its 2021
auction calendar with the company’s 22nd annual Arizona
auction, held this year at the OTTO Car Club in Scottsdale with
limited, by appointment only in-person attendance, achieving
$35,065,900 in total sales with 90 percent of all lots finding new
homes. The one-day auction saw bidders from 35 countries
around the world bidding in the room and via phone and internet.
Top sales were also highlighted by several modern supercars, including a 2020 McLaren Speedtail, the
first example of the marque’s most technologically advanced and fastest road car to sell at public auction.
A masterpiece of automotive engineering with central driving position and three-seat configuration, the car
was one of only 106 examples produced, paying tribute to the 106 McLaren F1s. Highly optioned by MSO
and showing only 30 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloguing, chassis no. 36 went to its next
owner for $3,277,500. Additional well-sold supercars include a highly optioned 2019 McLaren Senna, the
95th of 500 examples produced and wearing Dramatic Visual Carbon Fiber bodywork, at $1,044,000; a
desirable 2019 Ford GT ‘Lightweight’, a special option made available only to select applicants, which
brought in $967,500; a 1993 Cizeta V16T, one of just nine examples completed and ordered new by the
Royal Family of Brunei, which achieved $665,000; and an exclusive factory 1998 RUF Turbo R, extensively
mechanically refreshed in October of 2020, which surpassed its high pre-sale estimate of $575,000 and
sold for a final $764,000.
Purchased new from Bernie Ecclestone by British racer Peter Blond and retaining many of its original
components today, the well-documented example goes to its new caretaker as a worthy candidate for
vintage competition at the highest and most prestigious levels.
