This week our Auctioneer Spotlight is shining on Thomas Walsh and his recently completed auction of exotic sports car collection! Tom is an auctioneer who lives in Springfield, IL and worked with Aumann Auctions Inc. in Nokomis, IL. This sports car auction was one of seven for this specific estate, ranging from Illinois to Florida, with the cars being the third auction.
By using the ‘Extend All’ function with these “like subject matter assets”, Tom explains it as “the perfect marriage of that option and those assets.” He goes on to describe this situation by saying, “This catalog was really interesting, but if you look at the whole project, getting into a 7 million dollar project is really cool. It’s kind of like a unicorn.”
This auction included 11 cars totaling around $2.7 million. “It worked great!” proclaims Tom. "The total for all the auctions should fetch the estate north of 7 million dollars. Trust, careful hands, and marketing is the product being sold today.”
Final prices of the auction are as follows; 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale closed at $640,000, 2018 Lamborghini Huracan - Performante V-10 closed at $320,000, 2014 Ferrari F 12 Berlinetta V-12 closed at $235,000, 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS closed at $235,000, 2005 Ford GT closed at $450,000, 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Coup 6.0L V12 closed at $185,000, 2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT Coupe550 HP 5.0L V8 Supercharged closed at $115,000, 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S closed at $105,000, 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo closed at $180,000, 2014 Maserati Gran Turismo MC Sportline Convertible closed at $75,000 and finally, the 2003 Ferrari 360 Spider Convertible closed at $110,000.
