Bonhams had 27 collector cars available to the highest bidder at their recent auction event in Chantilly, France. The most expensive lot of the group turned out to be none other than, the one-off 1972 Maserati Boomerang. This one-of-a-kind concept car was built on the chassis of the Maserati Bora and boasts an aggressive 310 bhp V8 engine. The head-turning Boomerang can reach speeds of up to 186 MPH (300km/h).
So how much did it go for? The unique collector car sold for a whopping €3,289,500 Euros beating out other high-end models such as a 1934 Mercedes-Benz 500 K cabriolet C (€609,500 euros) and a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT Coupe (€598,000 Euros). Together, the 27 cars being auctioned grossed a grand total of 7.4 million Euros
The auction results from Chantilly show us just how collectible rare, one-off concept cars can be! Not only are these vehicles spectacular and historic, but they are one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork and a reminder of our ‘future’ of the past.
