A stunning collection of some of the world’s rarest supercars will be up for grabs next month at RM Sotheby’s first Dubai auction. The boutique auction will take place on March 9 at the beautiful Cement Hall on Alserkal Road in the Al Quoz district of Dubai. The UAE is one of the world’s top luxury car markets, and it’s no surprise that some of the latest and greatest automotive innovations are up for sale at Dubai’s first ever luxury car auction by RM Sotheby’s. The car with the highest pre-sale estimate is the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling. Named after British racing legend Stirling Moss, the special edition Speedster bodied car is the last of the McLaren SLR range built in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz. Only 75 units were ever built, making it an extremely rare car. The German beauty is expected to bring in an amount of 3.5 million dollars.
If you want something even more rare, the auction includes the 2016 Koenigsegg Agera RSR. While the Swedish manufacturer built 27 examples of the Agera RS, which was the fastest production car in the world at one time, the auction is one of three Agera RSRs built for for the Japanese market only. It is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 that is capable of producing a whopping 1,160 horsepower.
Decked out in a menacing shade of black with exposed carbon fiber weaves, the hypercar has just 993 kilometers (about 617 miles) on the odometer and is expected to sell for up to $3.4 million.
Also for sale at the auction is the nearly obsolete 2023 Aston Martin Valkyrie Coupé. The one-owner car is finished in Scintilla Silver on the exterior, contrasted with bright red accents. The track-oriented hypercar could fetch as much as $3.3 million. The auction will also include a 1935 Atlantic Ocean Recreation Bugatti 57 by Erik Koux. A very detailed model of what is considered one of the most beautiful cars ever made can sell for up to $1 million. In addition to the rare beauties, the auction will also see the sale of several special edition Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches, and even a half-sized Jaguar E-Type children’s car.
