Before you ask, no there was no red Barchetta in the lot. But there was a 1963 split-window Corvette, a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 (the classic James Bond car), a 1964 Shelby Cobra 289, a 1964 E-Type Jaguar, a 1965 Maserati Mistral, a 1970 Lamborghini P400 S, and a 1973 Maserati Ghibli.
Known as Neil’s “Silver Surfers” car collection (all but the Shelby were silver), his family auctioned off the cars this past weekend. The Lambo fetched the most (US$1.325 million; it’s the one in the middle of the photo below)) with the total haul being US$3.9 million. The DB5 (the one at the very back) didn’t make its reserve price so it will be sold at a later date.
Neil loved these cars. He was working on a coffee table book about them before he died in January 2020.
