Mecum Auctions eclipses record-setting 4,000 consignments for Kissimmee


More than 4,000 consignments and nearly 40 collections are slated for auction at Mecum Kissimmee 2024. The 25th anniversary celebration of the famed auction is set to take place Jan. 2-14 at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida. The car count for the world record-setting event is poised to outpace that of previous years, with the diverse selection including American muscle cars, ‘50s classics, Corvettes, exotics, trucks, Hot Rods, customs and more.

Headlining all consignments and hailing from The Apex Collection of 26 lots is a 1966 Ford GT40 Mkl Road Car (above) that is one of 30 original GT40 Road Cars ever produced and currently shows just 13,442 original miles. The car was in the care of its previous owner for nearly 30 years, unseen by the public, and it now boasts a photo-documented comprehensive restoration performed by RUF Automobiles.

Another headlining vehicle from the collection is a 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort (above) that is one of only 292 959s ever produced for the world and has a matching-numbers 2.85L twin-turbocharged flat 6-cylinder engine. A 1993 Jaguar XJ220, also from The Apex Collection, will grace the Kissimmee stage as well, and it’s one of just 282 examples made of Jaguar’s flagship supercar, today showing just 703 miles since new.

A trio of auction-headlining Ferraris is another highlight that was recently consigned to the Kissimmee 2024 lineup. The exceptional threesome includes a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTS/4 NART Spyder (above) that is number nine of 10 built,

a 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/LM Competizione Speciale (above) that is one of three built,

and a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder (above) that is the last Spyder SWB California constructed. This trio joins an already robust list of Ferraris to be offered, including a low-mile 2004 Enzo that’s one of six in its color, a 1965 Ferrari 275 GTS that’s one of just 200 produced, a low-mile U.S.-spec 1992 F40, boasting several awards, and a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 S.E.F.A.C. that is the first of only six to leave the factory in black.
