Modern Speed Collection at 2016 Mecum Monterey

The Modern Speed Collection will be featured at the 2016 Mecum Monterey auction, scheduled for August 18-20 at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel in California during Monterey Classic Car Week. The Collection includes 12 low-mileage examples of modern sports and supercars from names such as Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche.

Headlined by a 2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4, 2011 Ferrari 599 SA Aperta and 2014 McLaren P1, the Modern Speed Collection will cross the auction block on Saturday, August 20th. The one-owner Bugatti is finished with two-tone Sterling Metallic and Graphite Metallic paint, with 3,839 miles from new. The one-owner 2011 Ferrari 599 SA Aperta is one of 80 produced to commemorate Ferrari’s 80th Anniversary. It has only traveled 870 miles since new.

The 2014 McLaren P1 offered at Mecum’s 2016 Monterey sale is chassis number 000002. As the earliest chassis number in private hands, this hypercar was delivered new in May 2014 with a painted carbon fiber body. Later in the production cycle, McLaren announced their plans to offer a limited number of cars with exposed carbon fiber body panels. The owner shipped the car back to McLaren in September 2015 to be fitted with an exposed carbon-fiber body and upon completion, McLaren shipped the completed car back in December 2015 and then later the original painted body in three separate crates. McLaren built only four or five exposed carbon fiber cars after the end of the original production run, however this P1 is the only example that was converted from a painted to exposed-finished body by the factory. The original body will be included in the sale of the car.

Other examples from the Modern Speed Collection on offer in Monterey will include:

  • 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO, One owner and 1,965 miles since new
  • 2004 Porsche Carrera GT, One owner and 1,334 miles since new
