Steve Jobs’ sweet ride part of highend car auction
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.
