The most expensive cars at the 2015 Pebble Beach auctions

1. 1964 Ferrari 250LM $17.600m (RM Sotheby's) Campaigned with much success in UK hillclimbs and sprints for the first 20 years of its life. 23rd of 32 built; considered one of the best in existence.

$390 million of cars were auctioned off last week in the build-up to the Pebble Beach concours in California.

Between them RM Sotheby’s, Gooding & Co., Bonhams, Mecum and Russo & Steele sold 741 collector cars, realising some astonishing prices. The hammer came down at more than $1 million on 80 cars, while seven made eight-figure sums.

There was talk of ‘Pebble Beach fever’ taking over bidders, and some prices certainly did seem high. But there was no doubting the quality of cars the ‘big three’ – RM, Gooding and Bonhams – offered. RM Sotheby’s did best, realising over $167 million from 126 cars, 35 of which sold for over a million.

But what we really want to know is which cars made the most money. So click through the gallery below to see the top ten most valuable cars sold at the 2015 Pebble Beach auctions.

Between them the top ten made $126.2 million, nearly a third of the total. There has been much talk of a slow-down in collector car prices recently, but not on this evidence.
