Thanks for the nice write-up!


" – Racing is Life

"Anything that happens before or after is just waiting." said Steve McQeen in "Le Mans" 1971. A very true statement if you have a passion for historic automobile racing. Our long time friend and supporter Alexander Davidis, who started out as art director in New York City, who worked around the globe in some 20 odd countries with some of the leading ad-agencies and who won the Aston Martin Owners Club's "Klemantaski-Parnell" photo competition every consecutive year since he decided to enter in 2001, is specialized in capturing historic racing automobiles. He just finished the postproduction of "GT RACER - Season II" including such high lights as "Le Mans Classic" and "La Carrera Panamericana". GT RACER is taking you literally inside the cars and onto the tracks. As a member of three idiosyncratic race teams, you are getting a pe ek at the most spectacular series of international classic racing, where the most beautiful vintage racers ever built battle it out on their most glamorous original tracks: 1950s and 60s Aston Martins, Ferraris, Jaguars, Mustangs, Cobras and Stingrays at Porto (Portugal), Silverstone (UK), The Nürburgring (Germany), Laguna Seca (California), Lime Rock (Connecticut) and at the Six Hours of Spa (Belgium). GT RACER shares the unique experience of the classic racer that time-travels to the golden era of car racing. Where it’s not just about the checkered flag but the thrill of the chase. It’s not just about the speed and the noise but the incredible atmosphere. Alexander has also finished Shaken & Stirred - Racing Astons at Spa. What a production!

Monday, January 12, 2009 - The Top 10 Million Dollar Sellers of 2008

And what a year it was. Looking at the auction results we have to come to the conclusion, that the market is still going very strong despite the fact, that Wall Street was in shock in 2008.
50% out of 10 top sellers of last year were sold by RM Auctions and another third by Bonhams, Gooding came in third. The performance of these three auction houses was definitely top notch. More than half of the automobiles were sold in Pebble Beach, Monterey or Carmel, California and more than 25% were sold in Maranello, Italy. All in the months of May and August 2008. Apparently there were investors running from one place to the other to find the perfect pick. No wonder, that 5 out of 10 Top sellers were Ferraris.

The top seller was a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California for 10.894.400 US Dollars, auctioned by RM Auctions in Maranello in May 2008. An unbelievable amount of money for an unbelievable automobile!

The runner ups were the following dreamcars:

1937 Bugatti 57SC - 7.920.000 US Dollar
Gooding - Pebble Beach

1964 Ferrari 250 LM - 6.979.225 US Dollar
RM - Maranello

1960 Jaguar E 2A - 4.957.000 US Dollar
Bonhams - Carmel

1939 Talbot Lago - 4.847.000 US Dollar

1961 Ferrari 250 GT - 4.510.000 US Dollar
