Hollywood Wheels Auctions bags a record breaking AC Cobra at Fort Lauderdale

The first weekend of the New Year saw new boys Hollywood Wheels pitch up at Fort Lauderdale (previously associated with Kruse) and immediately break a Cobra record.

Kruse fired back with an auction just 25 miles away in Boca Raton, but that event posted only 34% sales (for $ 6.7m). Hollywood Wheels grabbed the headlines with its Shelby Cobra 427 S/C. Finished in an unusual gold colour scheme, the S/C was the feature car of the show.

S/C (Semi-Competition) cars are generally second in value only to the competition roadsters, although the Daytona coupes sell for much more. The final price of $ 3,780,000 (£2,600,000) was a major success.
