Throughout The Car Industry
Categories: Auto Shows
For many of us, motor vehicles go hand-in-hand with music, and there have been countless songs written about cars, trucks, and motorcycles. This is a certain romanticism that is distinctly American. When it comes to cars, Detroit has always been the epicenter, and on the musical side, there are a handful of cities that stand apart from the others. Without question, Memphis, Tennessee is one of them. This southern city has deep musical roots in multiple different genres. The Memphis blues scene is legendary, and the town is known as the home of “The King Of Rock and Roll”, Elvis Presley. A visit to Graceland is probably on your bucket list, and if you love cars, there is a very special aspect to it. The Elvis Presley Automobile Museum was opened there in 1989, and it houses more than 20 cars that were once owned by the singer.

Now, don't panic. I know the list of Mecum's Ferrari/Maserati apex predators alone won't spend all of your quarter-billion-dollar inheritance from your granduncle Archibald, but I promise you will be able to spend it all in one place, between August 18th and 20th, to assemble the greatest collection of modern mega-dollar performance cars as his will requires.

My condolences. I heard about your granduncle Archibald's passing. Not to be rude, but wasn't it odd that a recluse who lived in a decommissioned missile silo in the middle of Nowheresville had a quarter-billion-dollars' worth of gold bullion stockpiled? I mean, it's good for you, as you're his sole heir. What? You get the money only if you spend it all in one place, between August 18th and 20th, to assemble one of the greatest collections of mega-dollar performance cars?

The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and this is a very significant date in American history. Independence Day commemorates the approval of the Declaration of Independence, which made the United States a sovereign entity outside of British rule. A lot of people think that the document was signed on July 4th, but it was actually signed two days earlier and approved on the day that we now call Independence Day.

Bonhams held its appropriately named “The Mercedes-Benz Sale” at just about the best place on Earth they could have—the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany—on March 19, and it was packed with the swoopy, super-expensive 1930s models that made the brand the luxury powerhouse it is today.
Problem is, none of them sold.

When the range-topping Giulia Quadrifoglio first made its debut, the 505-horsepower M3 fighter previewed what was in store for the newest Alfa Romeo sedan but did little to reveal what the more mainstream versions would look like. The Italian brand has rectified this omission with the unveiling of the base Giulia and Giulia Ti models ahead of their debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show.
