Luxurious Cars at Every Price from RM Sotheby’s London

  • UNDER $50,000:
    1993 Range Rover Vogue LSE. Estimate £25,000–35,000 ($32,250–45,000).
    Always in vogue, the early 1990s Range Rover is perhaps the most memorable silhouette in the brand’s history – taking boxiness to the extreme, with still a healthy splash of function over style. This example is freshly restored and is a desirable and luxurious Vogue edition LSE just as capable off-road as it was on the high street. 

  • UNDER $50,000:
    1980 Ferrari 400i. Estimate £30,000–40,000 ($38,500–51,500).
    There is in fact a vintage 12-cylinder Ferrari that you can own for less than the cost of a new SUV: the iconoclastic Ferrari 400i. The car was indeed a favourite of Enzo Ferrari himself and popular amongst the rock-and-roll jet-set of the 1980s. The car even made a cameo in a Daft Punk music video just a few years ago. This example is presented beautifully in stunning colours of blue over cream leather interior and offers the benefit of long-term single ownership.  

  • UNDER $100,000:
    1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec. Estimate £40,000–60,000 ($51,500–77,250).
    For the fast and furious in each of us, there is the 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec. Made famous by its appearance in 2 Fast 2 Furious with Paul Walker behind the wheel, the R34 GTR as it is known, has become a cult classic. These early examples are highly coveted, particularly when offered in stock form. They are serious performers on the road and can hold their own against the fastest exotics of their day. 

  • UNDER $200,000:
    1972 Aston Martin V8 Coupé. Estimate £100,000–125,000 ($129,000–$161,000).
    This 1972 Aston Martin V8 Coupé is the definition of British Muscle. Although it bears more than just a passing resemblance to the American Mustang, any comparisons end the moment you look under the hood at the massive hand-built English V-8. One of the world’s ultimate Grand Touring cars, and just about the best dollar-per-looks in the classic car market today.  

  • UNDER $200,000:
    2014 Land Rover Defender SVX “Spectre.” Estimate £100,000–150,000 ($129,000–193,250).
    This is without doubt the ultimate Land Rover Defender. Prepared by Land Rover specialists Bowler for the villain Blofeld in the James Bond film Spectre, these Defenders are just as capable as they appear to be. This example was used only for drive-by shots in the movie and sustained no damage during filming. One of only eight examples in private hands, the SVX “Spectre” is fully road legal and ready to be enjoyed. 

  • UNDER $500,000:
    1950 Talbot-Lago T26 Record Cabriolet by Antem. Estimate £200,000–300,000 ($257,750–386,500).
    This stunning Talbot-Lago T26 Record was a thoroughly modern machine upon its debut at the 1949 Paris Salon, yet it featured coachwork by Antem harking back to the flowing streamlined designs of the French pre-war era. It was a more squared-off body shape that would come to dominate car design in the 1950s, and this spectacular Talbot-Lago T26 Record Cabriolet is in many ways the last of its kind, showing off a beautiful merger of post- and pre-war European design.  

  • UNDER $500,000:
    1998 Porsche Turbo S:
    £260,000–300,000 ($335,000–386,600).
    Porsche has always been willing to accommodate the wishes of clients who wanted to own cars that were just a bit more exclusive than what was on the showroom floor. The 993 Turbo S is one such example, with only 345 examples produced worldwide and only 26 produced in RHD configuration. The Turbo S was an upgraded version of the standard turbo, made capable of 0 - 60 MPH in under four seconds.  

  • UNDER $1,000,000:
    1996 Porsche GT2. Estimate £675,000–750,000 ($870,000–967,000).
     “GT2” has come to represent the most powerful and hardcore cars ever to leave the gates at Stuttgart. This all began with the 993 GT2, a turbo-charged rear wheel drive racecar made legal for the street. The car offered here, one of only 161 road-going examples, looks appropriately sinister in its all black colour scheme.  

  • OVER $1,000,000:
    2004 Ferrari Enzo. Estimate £1,600,000–1,800,000 ($2,062,500–2,320,000).
    The Ferrari Enzo will remain for many the ultimate Ferrari. Produced at a time of Ferrari dominance in Formula 1, the car was truly and properly meant to look and perform as an F1 car for the road. The car is currently finished in the stunning colour of Blu Tour de France and is replete with service history since new and Ferrari Classiche Certification. It’s unusual to find an Enzo in any other colour than red, and yet more rare to find a car so remarkably well kept.
