Sold for $456,000 at 2021 Bonhams : Amelia Island Auction.
There were only 500 Speedsters of the Auburn 851 created during 1935 through 1936. In October of 1937, E.L. Cord sold his Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg holdings and brought a sad close to a very prominent set of marques.

This 1935 Auburn 851 Supercharged Speedster has chassis number 33094E and engine number GH4309. It has a two-speed Columbia Rear-end, three-speed manual gearbox, and four-wheel hydraulic brakes. It sits atop a 127-inch wheelbase, right-hand drive configuration, which is propelled by a 150 BHP 279 cubic-inch supercharged L-head Inline eight-cylinder engine. It was offered for sale at the 2006 Gooding & Company Auction held in Pebble Beach where it was estimated to sell for $350,000-$425,000.

The car carries its original speedster body with matching engine and serial numbers. It has traveled minimal miles since new and is in concours award-winning condition, thanks to its recent comprehensive restoration.

On auction day, the car was left unsold.

This 1935 Auburn 851 Supercharged Boattail Speedster with serial number 851 33094 E is one of fewer than ten 1935-1936 Speedsters delivered as export models with right-hand drive. Its serial number originally had an 'L' suffix, signifying the export status. This Boattail Speedster was originally delivered with optional equipment that included a dashboard-mounted radio and a heater.

This car was shipped to British distributor Clifford Taylor Automobiles Ltd., on London's Berkeley Square. In 1947, it was brought back to the United States from England, and two years later sold to Mr. Formicelli of Trumbull, Connecticut. The next owner was John Ehresman and in 1994 it was sold to Bruce Earlin of Milford, Pennsylvania. Over the next three years, the car was given a complete restoration. After the work was completed, the car achieved a Primary First and Best of Show at the ACD Club Eastern Spring Meet in early 1998, 100 points and a Primary First Prize at the CCCA Eastern Grand Classic that spring, and a Senior First at the ACD National Reunion that autumn. It was also awarded an ACD Club Category 1 Certification, no. A-341.

The car was later sold to Greg Ornazian of Michigan, after which it passed through the hands of collectors in Pennsylvania and Ontario before joining the stable of the current owners.
