While the United States is well known for the classic car auctions taking place in Pebble Beach and Arizona, many overseas buyers are beginning to discover an important classic car event in Florida. The Amelia Island Auctions take place each year in March, and offers hundreds of classic cars for sale. Here are our 5 picks of the classic cars to buy at this year's Amelia Island Auctions.

1955 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America

Estimate: $1,500,000 - $1,700,000
Gooding & Company - March 10

One of only 68 examples remaining, this Spider America has been owned by a single family for the past 30 years. A careful restoration in 2014 ensures this Lancia will turn heads at shows. A similar Lancia will be offered for sale during the same weekend by RM Sotheby's. - Link

It's a rare treat to find a Type 57S Cabriolet for sale, but what makes this car that much more special is it's just one of four cabriolets built by Vanvooren. Plus this example is highly original and unrestored. - Link
