AUBURN -

Collector car sales at the annual Auburn Spring auction totaled more than $6 million last weekend at the Auburn Auction Park. A rare version of a 2006 Ford GT was sold for nearly $300,000, the highest bid of the auction.

RM Sotheby's Group Car Specialist Barney Ruprecht says "our top ten sales at Auburn Spring demonstrate both the diverse offering as well as the variety of cars that can successfully find new homes at the Auburn Auction Park. The Ford GT result and the successful presentation of private collections like the 15-car Duffy Grove group once again prove the power of offering significant cars without reserve in Auburn, while the refreshed auction arena and new park configuration drew nothing put positive feedback from our clients. We look forward to bringing even more excitement to the Auction Park for Auburn Fall."

RM Auctions says the event attracted thousands of attendees and included 300 cars with 84 percent of all lots getting sold. The event, in its eighth year, previously operated under former RM Sotheby's Group subsidiary Auctions America. The auction went by the RM Auctions banner this year for the first time. RM Sotheby's Group says bidders came from 16 countries and 38 states.
