8C sales at Amelia Island
Since nobody has posted anything here recently, I will update the forum with the 8C sales from the Amelia Island Gooding Auction. An Alfa Red 8C Coupe sold for $330,000, and a Competition Red 8C Spider sold for $390,500. Both appeared to be excellent cars with low mileage. The prices on 8C's have stabilized in this range for about a year now. When the collector car market starts to move again, the 8C will be poised for significant value appreciation, as they are not only appealing to major collectors, but they also are desirable to the new generation of enthusiasts who are starting to acquire cars from the later eras. Interestingly, there are very few 8C owners in the States, as many major American collectors own multiple 8C's. Quite a few own both a Coupe and Spider, and a number of others own more than one Coupe. Also, the major owners are not selling the cars, so not a lot of cars will be available in the future.
