When it comes to car auctions, New York has historically been an overlooked region even with one of the highest concentrations of wealth and supercars! This fall, Bradford Rand and his teams at RAND Luxury & EXPO International are going change that.
On October 5th, RAND Luxury will be producing New York’s Premiere Motorcar Auction at the Nassau County Museum of Art. The museum, sitting on 140+ manicured acres is located on the beautiful “Gold Coast” of Long Island, in Roslyn Harbor ( just 15 minutes out of from New York City) was once home to the legendary Frick Family. A portion of the auction proceeds will benefit this iconic art institution and all registered bidders will automatically receive complimentary memberships to the Museum.At the commencement of the event, there will be a luxury brunch and a highly curated car concours that will lead into the auction which begins at 4pm. RAND Luxury has secured sponsors such as Manhattan Motorcars, Ferrari / Maserati of Long Island, Sports Car Market, Hemmings, Porsche Club of America, Aston Martin & McLaren of Long Island, Putnam Leasing & Intercity Lines who will all be inviting their top automotive clients from across the Northeast to this inaugural event.

A partial list of auction lots has been released, and there are quite a few impressive vehicles that will cross the auction block. Among them is a 2001 BMW Z8 roadster, a 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Cabriolet 3.5, a 1935 Packard Super-Eight Coupe Roadster, and a 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo. One of the most desirable Ferraris of modern time, a 1991 F40, has also been revealed to be on the list. It was a car created to celebrate the Italian brand’s 40th anniversary and was approved personally by Enzo Ferrari before his death.
Adding to the eclectic yet high-end nature of the event will be a 2010 Tesla Roadster, which also has been revealed as one of the auction lots. Another exotic American electric carm a 2012 Fisker Karma Signature Edition, will also be open to bids.
This auction will be helping a good cause, making it even more compelling. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Nassau County Museum of Art. The museum has a long and interesting history. Situated just 20 miles east of New York City on 145 acres on Long Island’s Gold Coast, it has become a major destination for the public.
