Looking for a recipe for the “perfect storm” of car auctions? Take an impressive racing facility with hundreds of high performance cars and dozens of veteran instructors, and add a multi-million dollar race car with impeccable lineage. Sprinkle in a world-famous race car driver who drove this actual vehicle to victory over the Ferraris in 1965, and add a dash of the brilliant young designer who created six of these incredible race cars. Mix well, along with a versatile insurance provider that can cover such a valuable vehicle, along with a rock-solid transport company to deliver it, and top it with the kind of auction company that can market the vehicle and deliver the buyers. Viola – you have the perfect auction storm in the form of the 1965 Cobra Daytona being put up for bid by Mecum Auctions on May 15 in Indianapolis.
