Of particular note, this collection is offered largely without reserve, creating a unique opportunity for enthusiasts to acquire pieces of automotive history that exemplify the nature of Speed Racer’s iconic adventures and the enigmatic allure of Racer X.

Barney Ruprecht, Senior Car Specialist and Vice President of Auctions for Broad Arrow, states, “I am delighted to share in the announcement of this outstanding collection now consigned for our Amelia Island auction. The offering of 12 cars is undoubtedly highlighted by the 2022 Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport (estimate: $4,000,000 – $5,000,000) and the 2021 Lamborghini Sián (estimate: $3,000,000 – $3,750,000), two cars with extraordinarily low production numbers and as such, both are seldom seen in collector circles. The private collection will be offered almost entirely without reserve, excluding one of the finest Shelby Cobra 427 S/Cs and the Bugatti. However, the occasion for the majority of the cars to be offered without reserve is incredibly rare and a unique opportunity in itself.”
