IRS auction of Scott Tucker's cars

Scott Tucker's pay day scheme fell far outside of the law, and he finds himself behind bars for the next 17 years. Some of his loot went into high end cars.

These cars are a 2011 Ferrari 599 SA Aperta, a track-only Ferrari 599XX, a 2011 Porsche GT2 RS, and a Porsche 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. The Ferrari Aperta is one of 80 examples built. It fetched $1.02m.
Base price on the scant 29 Ferrari 599XXs produced was $1.75m. This example made $1.2m.

Tucker's supercars crossed the auction block on February 5th in Austin after the IRS Criminal Investigation Unit seized them. The cars aren't going to recoup anything close to the $1.3 billion that Tucker stole.
A Porsche 2005 Porsche Carrera GT brought $609k.
Porsche made 500 (132 in US spec) of the GT2 RS at a bargain basement $245k. That number was $475k for this example.
