The Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida, played host to the highly-anticipated debut of ModaMiami this past weekend, drawing over 8,000 attendees and solidifying its status as a premier luxury lifestyle and automotive event on the East Coast. The event attracted a global crowd and showcased more than 250 of the world’s rarest automobiles, including eight Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Best of Show winners.

One of the highlights of the event was the successful auction by RM Sotheby’s, which saw over million in sales. Notable records were set during the auction, including the sale of a 1966 Porsche 906 Carrera 6 for ,205,000, a 2010 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport ‘Sang Bleu’ for ,085,000, and a 1953 Ferrari 250 Europa Coupe by Vignale for ,295,000.

The success of ModaMiami solidified its reputation as a highly anticipated gathering globally, showcasing a wide range of vehicles from Ferrari F40s to historic Duesenbergs, classic boats, and airplanes. Standout sales included the 1953 Ferrari 250 Europa Coupe by Vignale, which set a new world record for the model at .295 million. The event also saw significant bids for the 1930 Duesenberg Model J and the 2010 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport ‘Sang Bleu.’

The event went beyond the traditional automotive experience by offering unique experiences such as the Moda Drive and the Magic Hour at Moda, as well as the ModaMiami Cruise. This immersive approach to celebrating the best of collection rather than traditional judging resonated well with guests, establishing ModaMiami as a must-attend event for car collectors and enthusiasts alike.
