Leading the latest high-performance highlights for RM Auctions’ Fort Lauderdale auction are two supercar icons of the 21st century:

The 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari, one of just 499 built, is a low-mileage example of Ferrari’s first hybrid hypercar, capable of producing a combined 949 hp and showing a mere 600 miles from new. Presented in as-new condition throughout, the car is finished in eye-catching Giallo Modena with Scuderia Ferrari door shields, a black roof, and stunning black leather interior with yellow accents and carbon fiber trim (Est. $3,200,000 – $3,500,000).

A highest bid of $3,200,000 was rejected for this car at the 2018 Mecum Monterey sale – probably an expensive decision as the bid was only $50,000 below lower estimate. Around 180 miles were added since then.

The 2008 Koenigsegg CCX on offer is the first American-specification example delivered to a U.S. customer, significant in the sense that Christian von Koenigsegg had set out to build a viable global-market supercar compliant with stringent U.S. safety and emission standards.

Finished in black and retaining its dark silver Dymag wheels and matching “Top Gear” rear wing, the CCX has been upgraded by Koenigsegg to 980 hp and has covered just over 1,000 miles (Est. $950,000 – $1,200,000).
