On November 21, RM Auctions held its Art of the Automobile auction in New York. There were some truly some incredibly beautiful cars that crossed the block that day, including the 1964 Chevrolet CERV II.
According to the auction listing, the CERV II, which stands for Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle II, is the “first known operating example of torque-vectoring, all-wheel drive.” It was used a test vehicle for future Corvette ideas, including tires, aerodynamics, and top speeds.
This amazing one-of-a-kind vehicle was sold for $1.1 million. Even with that astounding amount of money, it wasn’t the top seller. That was another 1964 vehicle, a Ferrari 250 LM by Carrozzeria Scaglietti, which sold for $14.3 million!
There were two other General Motors cars included in the auction. One was a 1941 Cadillac Custom Limousine named “The Duchess.” This beautiful car received a high bid of $415,000, but its reserve was not met so it wasn’t sold. The other GM car was a 1958 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Convertible. Just look at that chrome! This fetched a respectable $258,500.
