A bird's eye view of the RM Sotheby's marquee at the Ritz-Carlton. RM-Sotheby's is the official auction house of the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance

The 2019 Amelia Island auctions threw up some amazing results as they always do, but as has become increasingly commonplace in recent times, cars below US$500,000 thrived, while million-dollar-plus cars didn't.

Total sales for the 2019 Amelia Island auctions were similar to last year's total ($79.6 million compared with $80.7 million in 2018), with a better sell through rate (71 percent versus 69 percent last year) and only a slight drop in the average price. But as 2019 rolls onwards, it is becoming increasingly clear that the collector car marketplace is undergoing generational change as younger buyers enter the market.

The strength of the auction marketplace surrounding the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance grew this year with the addition of Russo & Steele to the established big name Amelia incumbents of the official auction house, RM-Sotheby's, plus Gooding & Company and Bonhams.

The highlight of the auctions was Bonhams' sale of the Don C. Boulton Collection of brass era cars, motorcycles and hard-to-find antique car parts. The rarity of these 100-year-old cars ensured bidding competition was fierce, with 100 percent sell-through and numerous world record prices: $885,000 for the 1914 Simplex Speed Car; $698,000 for a 1904 Peerless Type 8 Roi des Belges; and $456,000 for the 1908 Welch Tourer.

No less than seven of the Boulton cars sold by Bonhams are eligible for the annual London-to-Brighton Emancipation Run, an event for which entries are limited to cars of 1904 and earlier.

Accordingly, we've broadened the spectrum of cars at different price points in cherry-picking the following list, and there's something for everyone.

$32,575 | 1977 Italy Car Ferrari 312T2 Formula 1 Child's Car | Bonhams

Official Auction Description: Bonhams

A remarkable story behind this car which is a half scale replica of the 1976 Ferrari 312T2 F1 in which Niki Lauda placed second in the 1976 Formula 1 Championship, just one point behind James Hunt in the McLaren Ford. The season was the focus of the 2013 biographical movie Rush. Five such cars were built by Italy Car of Bologna, with Ferrari's suppliers creating 1:2 scale versions of the various components, from a scaled Momo steering wheel to half-sized Goodyear tires. Niki Lauda ordered one for his son, and when Italy Car went into liquidation, another Bolognese company (Pony Car), acquired the remaining parts and finished two more examples. This is one of the original batch of five cars.

Official Auction Description: Gooding & Company

This car didn't sell because it didn't arrive in time for the auction, but is now available for private sale. The official Gooding & Company price estimate was quoted as $30,000 to $40,000, and the web site now indicates that it can be purchased for $35,000.

It is a five-eighths-scale replica of the 1965 Ferrari 330 P2 Sports Car Prototype, and was sanctioned by Ferrari. Designed and built by François Mortarini in cooperation with Ferrari Società Esercizio Fabbriche Automobili e Corse S.p.A. in 1967, it was developed to be driven by children on a small track adjacent to the main 24 Hours of Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe during the late 1960s. Like the original, it has a tubular frame and a fiberglass body, but instead of a 12-cylinder 4-liter motor, it has a small single-cylinder four-stroke engine.Still in its original shipping crate, this is the ideal works replica for the kids in your life.

$41,440 | 1938 Cadillac V16 Passenger Sedan | Auction House: Bonhams

Official Auction Description: Bonhams

By comparison to the buying power of its new price, this car is a bargain as the Cadillac V16 was the world's first V16 automobile, and is powered by a magnificent 452ci (7.4-liter) 45-degree V16, of which it has been said: "There is no power plant in any motor car so smooth, so quiet, so flexible." Styled by the legendary Harley Earl, 15,000 were built and it is this rather large number which has kept the price within reach of enthusiasts who don't have a spare seven figures in the bank. Bourgeois quality at a proletarian price!

One of two 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen Replicas sold at Amelia Island this year, and a gentle reminder of just how far the automobile has come in a century and a third. The single-cylinder, four-stroke 954 cc engine of the world's first internal combustion engined car produced 0.75 hp at 400 rpm, and was good for a maximum speed of approximately 16 km/h (10 mph). This particular replica was built by John Bentley Engineering to mark the centenary of the invention, and has a period-correct Surrey Top.

Captain Eddie Rickenbacker was a self-taught engineer, talented racing driver, America's most successful fighter pilot of World War I, owner of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and a pioneer of modern aviation as the leader of Eastern Air Lines. He survived multiple plane crashes, one of which left him adrift in the Pacific for 24 days during World War II. In between all of this he managed, in the early days of his career, to work as an engineer and salesman for the Columbus Buggy Company of Ohio, where he was involved in the design of this vehicle – the Columbus Autobuggy.

$67,200 | 1906 Rambler Type 3 18/20Hp Surrey |  Auction House: Bonhams | Lot 265

Official Auction Description: Bonhams

From the auction description: To many enthusiasts the name Rambler immediately brings to mind the small Nash of 1950, one of America's original "compact cars." The name, however, hailed from Nash's corporate ancestor, the original Rambler automobile produced in Kenosha, Wisconsin, between 1902 and 1914. This Rambler was no "compact," but rather a high-quality mid-to-luxury-priced car, noted for its excellent engineering and design. Even today the surviving Brass Era Ramblers are highly favored for their ruggedness by enthusiasts who drive them in one- and two-cylinder tours and similar events all over the world.

Official Auction Description: Bonhams

From the auction description:

The smallest and least-costly of the numerous fine automobiles produced by Colonel Albert Pope's empire, the Pope-Tribune was manufactured in a former bicycle factory at Hagerstown, Maryland. It was unusual for a small car of its period in having very advanced and high-quality features, including modern shaft drive and a sliding-gear transmission in a period when even large cars used chain drive and a planetary transmission.

Over the four years following its introduction in 1904, the Pope-Tribune steadily grew larger and more powerful, until it had priced and sized itself out of its original market. With numerous competitors, including those from other Pope factories, its sales fizzled, and it was out of production and the factory sold in 1908. The quality of the car itself endured, however, and the survivors are fiercely prized by American Veteran automobile enthusiasts. Seldom-seen compared even to its scarce Pope-Hartford, Pope-Toledo, and Waverley corporate cousins, it is among the rarest offerings of the Pope empire.

Another exacting replica 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen built by John Bentley Engineering, being one of approximately 90 examples commissioned by Mercedes-Benz Classic in 2001 and 2002. The replicas were to be used for educational and promotional purposes, as well as for museum and public exhibit. This example was built in 2002 and has never been operated, though it has been regularly oiled to keep the mechanical parts moving freely.

From the auction description: An important example of the classic Fiat-Abarth, the 750 Record Monza was a sporting dual-purpose machine. Based on the rugged Fiat 600 platform and evolved from the wildly successful 750 GT, the 750 Record Monza was in celebration of Abarth's numerous record-setting endurance runs at the famed Italian Autodromo. Like its predecessor, the car was carefully developed by the Abarth engineers at Torino and bodied by the famed Milanese coachbuilder, Zagato.

Official Auction Description: Bonhams

From the auction description: Of Colonel Albert Pope's numerous fine automobiles produced in the Brass Era, the Pope-Waverley was the only one produced in the famous early automaking state of Indiana. Built from 1904 to 1908, it was a literal 'horseless carriage,' a buggy powered by an electric motor fed from banks of lead acid batteries. Keeping with Colonel Pope's challenge to conquer the whole of the market, it was intended for the electric car market's focus clientele, wealthy ladies who used the clean-running, silent automobiles for around-town transportation and often drove themselves.
"Clean, Noiseless, Always Ready," Pope advertising noted, speaking to the front parlor. "Simple to Operate. Works perfectly in any weather."

Official Auction Description: Bonhams

From the auction description: In an era when the earliest American automobiles typically all looked like carriages that had lost their horses, the Springfield, Massachusetts-built Knox was something entirely different: a tiller-steered three-wheeler, with a light sulky-like body that brought to mind Ben Hur. Even its propulsion was of a unique design; the single-cylinder engine was air-cooled by means of steel pins, screwed into the sides of the cylinder walls. This expanded the cooling surface of the engine and allowed it to be cooled simply by the air flowing over it. Thus the Knox was one of the earliest air-cooled American cars. It became popularly known as the "Porcupine." The three-wheeled design lasted only through 1901, but air-cooling remained a Knox feature well into the decade.

Official Auction Description: Gooding & Co

There are numerous examples of the Fiat Jolly selling for above $100,000, possibly due to them being the ideal car for warm climates and their relative scarcity. Another factor was the number of celebrities who drove them in the late 1950s and 1960s at a time when the paparazzi were just beginning to supply candid shots of the rich and famous to photo magazines.

Regularly photographed in their Jollys were President Lyndon B. Johnson, Mae West, Aristotle Onassis, Yul Brynner, John Wayne, Grace Kelly, Henry Ford II, Mary Pickford, Gianni Agnelli, and James Inglis. The record for a Jolly at auction is held by Gooding & Co, which sold a 1960 Fiat Jolly for $170,500 in Scottsdale in 2015.

The car crossed Australia from Perth to Sydney in a 1970 international rally and also completed a VMCCA Trans-International Reliability Tour from Montréal to Tijuana in 1972.

Official Auction Description: Bonhams

From the auction description: The Apperson Brothers of Kokomo, Indiana, did not build America's first automobile, as their patron Elwood Haynes liked to claim. They did, however, built a very early U.S. "horseless carriage" in 1894, which is now immortalized in the Smithsonian Institution. The first production Haynes-Apperson was produced in 1897, and by 1904 the company was building rather advanced, well-engineered and solidly constructed two-cylinder models. That was the last year before Haynes and the Appersons went their separate ways. This particular Haynes-Apperson is one of two surviving examples of the company's most advanced product, the 1904 Model F, a rear-entrance tonneau with a surrey-style canopy and a conventional layout in which the engine was placed ahead of the body, in the modern fashion. In many ways the Model F was ahead of its time, having left-hand-drive and an adjustable steering column.

$190,400 | 1913 Renault Type Dp 22/24Cv Coupé-Chauffeur | Auction House: Bonhams | Lot 237

Official Auction Description: Bonhams

This 105-year-old car was sold from single family ownership of 105 years and, perhaps even more remarkably, it is completely original other than the consumables (tires, brake pads, etc). It has never been restored, and as a result possesses a patina unmatched by any restoration.

From the auction description: Of impressive size and powered by a 5.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the Type DP 22CV was one of Renault's flagship models of the pre-WWI era. This hand-built car's untouched bodywork retains its original, now slightly faded, paintwork while the interior, divided into two compartments, is likewise exactly as it was completed back in 1913. The driver's compartment has two deep-buttoned seats trimmed in black leather (no tears evident) while the passenger compartment is luxuriously equipped in a manner benefiting what was an extremely expensive motor car. The high-backed rear bench seat is divided by an armrest and trimmed in deep-buttoned brown leather. Damask and braid has been used to line the sides and the roof, showing little sign of ageing, while interior illumination is courtesy of two small ceiling lights. A small leather-trimmed console contains a pocket watch, a mirror, a clothes brush, a notebook and pencil, and flasks for ink. A communications system enables the passengers to talk to the driver.

The car was sold with the original owner's personal registration plate, some postcards, and the chauffeur's cap.

This Delage was built to win shows, with the legendary French atelier Figoni et Falaschi tasked with creating unique three-position drophead coachwork. It made its debut at the 1939 Concours d'Elegance au Bois di Boulogne where it took the gold medal. A Delage D6 finished second in the 1939 24 Hours of Le Mans, so in addition to being an exceptionally attractive car, it was also one of the fastest and most reliable road cars prior to WW2. In 1949, when the 24 Hours of Le Mans began again, a D6 again took second place in the endurance classic.

One of just 10 examples factory-equipped with triple Weber carburetors, this fascinating car was delivered new to famous playwright Isabella Quarantotti (who penned the movie classic, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow), and its subsequent owners included Domino's Pizza founder Tom Monaghan and the Blackhawk Collection.

In 2009 it underwent a second restoration by 13-time Pebble Beach award-winner Gary Maucher, with the nut-and-bolt restoration costing $350,000. Post restoration, the A6 was sold to the vendor, who sent the A6 to Candini Classiche in Modena, which completely overhauled the engine, gearbox, clutch, differential, brakes, and suspension at a total cost of $85,000. During this restoration, the correct Maserati steel wheels were sourced and fitted. In short, a wonderful car with period competition history, great provenance, extensive historical documentation and the receipts to prove it is as close to perfect as is possible.

Prestige car dealer Scott Grundfor best summed up the sale of this Bentley "that went for a perplexingly low $714,000 at RM, further cementing the common thread among industry observers that non-big name coachbuilt pre war models, regardless of intrinsic quality, are going to have a hard go of it in the years and decades to come from a generational perspective."

This car debuted at the Olympia and Scottish Motor Shows in 1927, the former being one of the most important motor shows on the planet at that time.

Official Auction Description: RM-Sotheby's

This car was already one of the top 20 most valuable Japanese cars of all time, having sold for $660,000 at Amelia Island four years ago, thanks to being a five-time race winner and the first Toyota GTP car to win a race, its significance as being the high point in Dan Gurney's All American Racers project, and the fact it was driven by twice IMSA Champion Juan Manuel Fangio II. It won't get any less significant as new generations join the car collector ranks ... a new generation which recognizes the historical gravitas of cars bearing the name Toyota.

The record auction price for an Italian car is $48.4 million, for a German car $31.1 million, $22.5 million for a British car, $22.0 for an American car, and $10.4 for a French car ... while the Japanese record is just $2.1 million. History suggests that equation will eventually balance itself, and as the first Toyota GTP car to win a race, it seems inevitable that the value of this car will continue to appreciate.

Only 500 Lexus LFA supercars were built, and only 50 of them were blessed with the Nürburgring package and a $465,000 price tag when they sold in 2012. Thanks to one of them setting a Nürburgring Nordschleife production lap record of 7:14.64 in 2011 (an unofficial record for a production car on non-competition tires), LFA Nurburgring models are now selling for a lot of money. RM-Sotheby's sold one for $885,000 and Barrett-Jackson sold another for $918,500 during the 2019 Scottsdale auctions and this result suggests it will soon become a million-dollar car.

Exactly 50 years ago, this car was a state-of-the-art Formula One Grand Prix car. On September 20, 1969, Jacky Ickx used this car to win the Canadian Grand Prix. Ickx also used the car to finish second in the 1969 Mexican Grand Prix, third in the French Grand Prix, fifth in the Dutch Grand Prix and sixth in the Spanish Grand Prix. He also qualified on pole in Canada and shared fastest lap with Jack Brabham, driving a sister BT26A.

$1,105,000 | 1968-69 3-Liter Repco Brabham-Cosworth Bt26/Bt26A | Auction House: Bonhams | Lot 278

In the eleventh and final round of that year's World Championship series, the Mexican GP, Jacky Ickx used it to post the fastest lap after Jack Brabham had started from pole. Ickx finished second in the Drivers' World Championship standings, behind Jackie Stewart in the Tyrrell-entered Matra-Cosworth MS80.

The space-frame chassis designed by Ron Tauranac resulted in one of the sweetest handling cars of the era, and the car had debuted the previous year as a BT26 in the hands of Jochen Rindt, taking pole position in its debut at the 1968 Canadian GP. The auction description has far more granular detail about the car, one of the last competitive space-frame F1 cars before monocoque construction changed the game entirely.

Auction House: RM-Sotheby's

It didn't go to auction, but this Ferrari 275 GTB/C was on display at RM-Sotheby's where it is for private sale. If it sold during the Amelia Island festivities, it would almost certainly have been the most expensive car sold as 275 GTB/C Ferraris are a very rare and expensive car, with previous examples having sold for $26,400,000, $9,405,000, and $7,860,622. The aluminum body and numerous other improvements were destined for just 12 cars, and those cars went to Ferrari's best customer teams, such as the North American Racing Team (NART), Ecurie Francorchamps, Maranello Concessionaires and Scuderia Filipinetti. The 275 GTB/C won its class in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966 and 1967, as well as the 1000 Km of Monza, 1000 Km of Spa, Targa Florio and numerous other top tier events in many countries.
