"Automobilia is great fun for collectors whether their budgets are big or small," said Auctions America by RM’s President Donnie Gould. "Some enthusiasts buy scale-model cars because they can’t afford the full-size versions; others buy them to put on a desk while the full-size version sits in the garage. Not everyone can afford a million-dollar 427 Cobra, but a well-made scale model might go for a few hundred dollars."
Available items include a fine example of Ferrari 275 GTB/4 NART Spyder, 1:8 scale; expected to go for between $10,000 and $15,000. Still about 10 millions dollars less the 1:1 version. But the highlight of the event will undoubtedly be the Sapo Modelltechnik 1913 Mercer 35J Raceabout – a 3000-parts masterpiece expected to sell for between $18,000 and $25,000.
