    Scottsdale Auctions

    The 2 Z8s up for auction seemingly went on the low end of the estimate - the one with only 550 miles on it sold for $264K including buyers premium.
    Was there an issue with the car?

    Yes, the rubbers were all dried out, the fuel lines were nearly clogged and the tires had flat spots.

    Which auction was this?

    I didn't see the Z8 cross the block so I can't comment on it, but our cars did get a positive statement from one of the commentators during the auctioning of a Ford GT, during which he observed that the Z8 and the Ford GT were essentially the only "newer" cars that are selling at a substantial premium to their original sticker price ( I suppose his comment excludes a few very limited production supercars).

    No issue with the car. Issue with the estimate.

    The Alpina #140 hammer price was $230,000, i.e. the buyer paid $253,000 which is line with 2 private (Alpina) sales that I know of that were in the $250-$275k range.
    The loser is the seller who only gets $207,000 minus transportation and marketing fees, and left a good $50k on the table.
