    95 mile '15 LaFerrari on Bring a Trailer

    https://bringatrailer.com/listing/20...ari-laferrari/

    Very interested to see how this one ends, given I wondered on a related eBay/BaT thread: To me, it's surprising that the auction houses and traditional broker/ gatekeeper models have held on as long as they have. It's difficult to ignore that BaT's platform delivers transparency and value to both the buyer and the seller, a win-win for the entire car enthusiast community.

    I agree, BaT is rewriting some rules. For the better IMO.
    2000 Red over black
    heavily modified for performance. Although, not to the level of GM's car

    I've been very impressed with their team and how thoroughly they vet the cars when I put a couple through them this year. That said I'd hesitate to put anything but a 'nice driver' through them as they don't get really strong results for our cars.

    Hi Andrew, agreed, but curious- when you say strong results, are you comparing the winning bids (+$5,000) on BaT to what the net costs are to buyers and sellers at traditional auction houses and 3rd party transactions?

    I do think the 7 day format works against BaT on more "common" cars, as the window of opportunity can be too short to reach would-be bidders. On the other hand, for patient and informed buyers, it's very easy to subscribe to new listing alerts by make or model on the site.

    1 day to go on the LaFerrari! Given the $3.305m and $3.19m LaFerraris that sold at RM and Mecum in Monterey 3+ weeks ago, it can only get better for the seller from this point.

    This will really change their profile, a successful sale on this car that equals or betters the big houses could redefine the future of car auctions. Nice work BaT!
