Some $400,000 lower than last year, the recently closed auction of a dinner with Warren Buffett sold for $1,680,300
Last year winner at $2,110,100 was Mr. Zhao Danyang, the hedge-fund manager of Pureheart China Growth Investment Fund . We do not know the winner’s identity just yet. If you have any info, please share as comment below.
Just like last time, all proceedings support the Glide Foundation

The heat is on: The Shelby auction we wrote about earlier is live and will end on Dec 12 at 5 PM PST. There is no bid just yet, probably because it requires pre-approval and serious buyers will hold on with their bids until the end. We still believe that the auction will fetch around $500,000. What’s your bet on the winning bid?
You can track the auction with the handy widget below:
The 1968 Shelby EXP500 CSS “Black Hornet” from Carroll Shelby’s personal collection will be on the auction block on December 2. The auction is sponsored by Restoration Hardware and will be hosted by eBay. Most of the proceeding will benefit Carroll Shelby’s Children’s Foundation(tm), a non-profit helping children with heart and kidney disorders.
About the car:
“Created under the direction of racing legend Carroll Shelby, the Shelby EXP500 CSS “Black Hornet” pays tribute to its chrome and green prototype, the Shelby Green Hornet, and is the only approved reproduction. Like its predecessor, the “Black Hornet” sports the famous scoops and stripes, powered by a Cobra Jet 428 V8 engine with a heart-pounding 335 horsepower. The car began life as a vintage 1968 Mustang, and was transformed into an authentic Shelby muscle car worthy of inclusion in the Shelby Worldwide Registry.”
Bidding will start at $100,000 and the auction will be open for bidding from December 2 through 12.
We think that the Shelby auction will fetch $500,000 easily. But because the car is from Carroll Shelby’s personal collection and due its uniqueness, it may very well go over that. We’ll track the auction ongoing and post the results on the 12th.
What’s your estimate on the final hammer price?
