Prior to the show, he ran his own auction house in Woburn for over 25 years and jet-set around the world conducting some pretty spectacular sales. He holds the record for the highest price ever achieved for a car sold by auction in the USA. The car, a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa Prototype, sold for over $16 million.
