And these Top 10 cars are responsible for a hefty part of that.
As one of most extravagant car events in the world and with its ability to attract some of the most unique vehicles and discerning buyers, Monterey Car Week has gained a reputation for making rich people's automotive dreams come true. But now that the numbers are in, it's time to find out just how much cash fell out of those loose pockets. This year, Monterey County attracted 85,000 visitors who spent a total of $390 million dollars on, well, used cars. More amazingly, the average sales price for a car at auction came to an outstanding $500,000.
So, which cars were most instrumental in bringing up that insane average? The 10 most expensive cars this year were the 1964 Ferrari 250LM ($17,600,000); 1961 Ferrari 250GT California SWB Spider ($16,830,000); 1962 Ferrari 250GT SWB Speciale ($16,500,000); 1998 McLaren F1 ($13,750,000); 1953 Jaguar C-type lightweight roadster ($13,200,000); 1956 Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Competizione "Tour de France" ($13,200,000); 1982 Porsche 956 ($10,120,000); 1959 Ferrari 250GT Interim ($8,525,000); 1950 Ferrari 275 S/340 America Barchetta ($7,975,000); and the 2005 Ferrari Enzo ($6,050,000).
