Luxury Cars: With depressed markets turning back the clock on prices, there may be no better time to snap up a classic Ferrari if you've got the cash. There are no less than six on offer at RM Auctions Automobiles of Amelia Island sale slated for the Ritz-Carlton on March 14th. A permanent and popular fixture on the annual auto events calendar since 1999, the single-day auction event coincides with Florida's famed Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance to make for an ultimate motoring weekend for auto enthusiasts.

The big get is undoubtedly a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, estimated at $2.4 million - $2.9 million. This is the 23rd of the 50 long wheelbase examples made and is unique with its Superamerica-style front wing vents and unusual bonnet air intake. The real steal however is this stunning 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, estimated at only $700,000 - $900,000. If Bugattis are more your style, you can choose between a 1939 Bugatti Type 57 C Faux Cabriolet 'Charmaine', est. at $550,000 - $750,000 or a 1936 Type 57 Stelvio, est. at $350,000 - $450,000.
