“This [car] was expected to make more,” he teased.
A clip was then shown of the auction which was held at Pebble Beach by auction house Gooding & Company and Charlie was heard asking: “Put me in at $3million – thank you! $3million I’m bid. Straight in.”
“The bids start at $3million, $4million, $5million and go quite quickly,” he explained to those watching at home. “Then suddenly $7million, $7.5million, $8million, $8.5million. And suddenly it’s racing away.”
“$9.1million! $9.2million! $9.3million – why not!” Charlie shouted in the auction room. The bidding created up to $9.4million.
