Steve Jobs’ sweet ride part of high­end car auc­tion

The Oakdale Leader - - NEIGHBORHOOD VALUES -

NEW YORK (AP) — A sleek sports car once owned by Steve Jobs could sell for over $300,000 at a De­cem­ber auc­tion — prac­ti­cally pocket change com­pared to some of the mil­lion­dol­lar ve­hi­cles that will be of­fered along­side it.

The Ap­ple founder’s 2000 BMW Z8 con­vert­ible is among about 30 sets of hot wheels that will be of­fered by a va­ri­ety of con­signors at the Dec. 6 sale in Man­hat­tan.

Bid­ders at the fan­tasy fu­eled RM Sotheby’s auc­tion might steer to­ward a hand­somely earth­toned 1961 Fer­rari 250 GT Cabri­o­let Series II by Pin­in­fa­rina, which has a pre-sale es­ti­mate of about $1.5 mil­lion to $1.8 mil­lion. They’ll also have the chance to pe­ruse a white, “ul­ti­mate streetle­gal” 1995 Porsche 911 GT2, which has a pre-sale es­ti­mate of about $1.1 mil­lion to $1.4 mil­lion, and a red 1952 Chrysler D’El­e­gance by Ghia.
