With the end of the COVID-19 pandemic nowhere in sight, many are consigned to largely staying at home and browsing life through the window of the internet. At least there are online car auctions to flip through.

RM Sotheby's hosted its Driving Into Summer online-only auction last month, which opened May 21 and ran through May 29. Because of the pandemic, it was the company's first consignment-based collector car auction held exclusively online.

Sydney auction house reopens with Wakil Emerald bidding

  Sydney auction house reopens with Wakil Emerald bidding Auction houses are beginning to let the hammer drop again and tonight sees one of the country's biggest gemstones go under the gavel. Known as the Wakil Emerald, it is 20 plus carats of pear shaped, step cut, claw set and diamond rimmed stone, named after its original owner, Sydney property developer couple Isaac and Susan Wakil.

One search turned up more than a dozen people visiting the Playboy Mansion, some overnight. Without much effort we spotted visitors to the estates of Johnny Depp, Tiger Woods and Arnold Schwarzenegger, connecting the devices’ owners to the residences indefinitely.

They are generally worth more now than they were when they were new. Truly classic Ferraris , as in pre-1980, often sell for millions of dollars. You’ll likely never see a real one in person . Regardless, car folk tend to covet the cars they couldn’t have as children.

Three cars that headlined this particular auction. They were iconic Ferraris: a 1985 Ferrari 288 GTO, a 1995 Ferrari F50, and a 2003 Ferrari Enzo. All three fetched well over $US2 million apiece.

"I believe we'll be the first [auction company] to sell a car worth $US2 million-plus online," Gord Duff, RM Sotheby's global head of auctions, told Robb Report recently.

An RM Sotheby's spokesperson backed up Duff's claims, telling Business Insider that to the best of the company's knowledge, "no other auction house has sold a car at this value in a dedicated, online-only collector car auction."

In total, RM Sotheby's raised $US16,385,738 in sales during the Driving into Summer online-only auction. The Ferrari Enzo indeed became what the auction house claims is the "most valuable car sold in a dedicated online-only collector car auction to date." It sold for $US2.6 million.

At each store, they cleaned out the shelves. Over the next three days, Noah Colvin took a 1,300-mile road trip across Tennessee and into Kentucky Matt Colvin stayed home near Chattanooga, preparing for pallets of even more wipes and sanitizer he had ordered, and starting to list them on Amazon.

And women were much more likely than men to say that they weren’t saving because they were living paycheck to paycheck — 35 percent versus 26 percent. The second- most -common savings obstacle respondents named was a low salary, which can go hand in hand with living paycheck to paycheck.

Not too far behind that were the 288 GTO and the F50, which sold for $US2.3 million and $US2.2 million respectively. You can take a look at a list of the complete results here.

The auction house says more than 80 cars were available.

Auction house RM Sotheby's hosted its Driving Into Summer auction last month and it was online only due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Road & Track's Sam Smith once wrote, "You become comfortable with it, and then you toe a bit too much into the boost and it turns into a tail-happy weirdo with far too much soul and this kind of grumbling exhaust note that just begs you to do silly things. ... This thing is great. It's friendly but eminently fearsome, drivable but perfectly involving. I want. I want, I want, I want."

Same, bud, same.
