Video: Pagani Zonda tops sales at Sotheby's F1 auction in Abu Dhabi

A car driven by former F1 driver Michael Schumacher during his successful fifth Driver's World Championship bid in 2002 sold for $6,643,750 at an auction held at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

The auction – the first ever to take place at a F1 Grand Prix – included 40 blue-chip collector cars, ranging from Grand Prix racing machines to sports cars and low-mileage modern hyper-cars.

In total, the auction generates sales of $31.3 million across two hours, with bidders coming from 28 countries.

The highest winning bid was $6,812,500 for a 2017 Pagani Zonda – an extremely rare vehicle and the first Zonda to be offered at a collector car auction in seven years.
