    2000 Z8 (#60085) Silver/Black Z8 (owned by Steve Jobs) sold at Sotheby’s for $329,500

    Here’s one that’s getting a boost from the provenance of its first owner—Steve Jobs. What caught my eye, other than the e$timated auction price, was the VIN WBAEJ1340YAH60085... cuz it’s one right after our Buffy (60084)! A new claim to fame. ;-)

    Both cars were even originally on the Peninsula in the Bay Area. Buffy was used as a demo/display for owner Takao Asayama’s Crystalguard surface protectant. Thus, there was a lot of buffing on that lovely black paint. (Takao is now back in Japan swooping up new Aston Martins and running his Bitcoin Blockchain-technology service, Tech Bureau.) Shawn Hardin was the second fanatical owner who continued the regular buffing tradition.


    It’ll be interesting to see where this silver one goes on December 6. Over or under?

    Provenance is everything, as Paul Newman's 17.8 million dollar Rolex proved. My understanding is that a similar but 'regular' Daytona of that period (when the Omega Moonwatch eclipsed the Daytona in the market) would today be worth in the 800-1MM mark.
