Feast Your Eyes On A 1956 Aston Martin DBR1 Worth $20 MILLION

by 2 years ago

Tomorrow kicks off the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The Concours d’Elegance is the premiere car show in the world, and it has several locations/events throughout the United States but the Pebble Beach event is their flagship. I’ve only ever been to the Concours d’Elegance in Fernandina Beach/Amelia Island, Florida but it was still the finest collection of cars in one place that I’ll probably ever see in my lifetime.

I forget what the exact theme was the year I went, but it had something to do with Ferrari, and there was a Ferrari there from every year the cars have been in production. The thing I remember the most about the car show was laying a finger on a shiny vintage Bugatti and some old man storming over to tell me ‘son, that car is worth more than your life ever will be’. He was a classy dude, I’m sure, and his car had a sticker price of around $2.5 million which pales in comparison to the 1956 Aston Martin DBR1 that’s expected to fetch $20 million at auction during this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The auctions begin tomorrow, and a total of $290 million in sales is expected to take place. This 1946 Aston Martin DBR1 is expected to sell for $20 million alone:
