Keels & Wheels Concours D'Elegance (May 2-4) is gearing up for their classic automobile auction, put on by collector car company Motostalgia. Taking place in Seabrook, Texas (which is a little south of Houston), the auction is promising a pretty nice line-up, including a 10-car collection and a 2008 Bugatti Veyron.
The Veyron has a 1,001 horsepower, quad-turbo 16-cylinder engine, which helps it clock in at speeds upward of 253 miles per hour— fast enough for you? As one of the fastest sports cars in the world, everything about these cars is over-the-top and extravagant. The auction estimated the car's value from $1.3 to $1.6 million.
So, what's the big deal? Well, as you probably know, Bugatti decided to cease production on new Veyrons and only a handful are still available. The car brand even started a certified program for pre-owned models that gives owners access to a new warranty once the car passes all of their certifications. We're sure a lot of Veyrons will be popping up at auction and we're looking forward to seeing the bidding wars that commence. According to Motostalgia Founder and President, Antonio Brunet, the upcoming auction already has several interested buyers, so you better act fast if you want this 2008 model.
If you miss out on the Veyron, don't worry because the auction will have plenty of rare automobiles to bid on, like two Rolls Royce models that haven't been seen on the US market for over 40 years (a 1933 Phantom II Club Coupe and a 1929 Phantom I Town Car) and a vintage 1955 Porsche 356 PreA Continental Cabriolet. Motostalgia will also be offering a 10-car selection without reserve, called the Jon Osha Collection, which will include a 1928 Rolls Royce Phantom I Boattail, a 1968 1/2 Mustang R Code 428 Cobra Jet, and a 1954 Jaguar XK120 Roadster.
