The UAE is ranked among the world’s top luxury car markets. Next month, catering to the increasing demand for ultra-luxury vehicles in the country, Dubai is set to host an auction featuring some of the world’s rarest supercars, organized by RM Sotheby’s, the leading collector car auction house, on March 9.

The auction will showcase a selection of automotive gems, including a brand-new 2023 Aston Martin Valkyrie, estimated to fetch between $2.9 million and $3.3 million. This marks the Valkyrie’s first-ever auction appearance in Dubai.

The auction will also feature a stunning recreation of the iconic pre-war 1935 Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic by Erik Koux, estimated to sell for between $699,000 and $898,000.

McLaren devotees can set their sights on a 2014 Mclaren P1 in a striking Mercury over Harissa Red color scheme, with an estimated price of $797,000 to $999,000. Ferrari fans can vie for a 2022 Ferrari 812 Competizione, estimated to cost $1.08 million to $1.3 million.

Lamborghini enthusiasts won’t be left disappointed either. The auction features a 2017 Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 Coupé, one of just 20 built to commemorate the company’s founder. This powerhouse, estimated at $1.99 million to $2.5 million, boasts a thundering 6.5-litre V12 engine and cutting-edge rear-wheel steering technology.

For those seeking an even more exclusive experience, the auction will offer one of only three Koenigsegg Agera RSRs ever made, built exclusively for the Japanese market. This supercar, powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine generating a staggering 1,160 horsepower, is estimated to fetch between $2.7 million and $3.4 million.

The Innovation By Design Summit is in Doha on April 24. Attendance at the summit is by invitation only. Delegates can register here to receive their exclusive invite.
