Paddles were flying high in the air as dozens of people bid hundreds of thousands of dollars at the 17th annual Naples Winter Wine Festival.
Monte Ahuja bid $360,000 for the Audi 2018 R8 Spyder. He sat next to his wife, Usha, and world-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck.
Ahuja has won four cars at past auctions in Naples. This would be his fifth.
"I don't have space for it right now," he said as he hugged and shook hands with the people around him.
Later in the auction, John Jordan, of Naples, hugged everyone in sight after he bid $180,000, the highest for lot 3, a trip to Los Angeles to attend the 45th Annual American Film Institute Life Achievement Awards, the televised Emmy award ceremony, Governor's ball, private dinner with Leslie and Rich Frank and a two-night stay at the Beverly Wilshire and the Beverly Hills Hotel.
"My daughter doesn't know this but I'm keeping the wine and everything else is for her," Jordan said.
His wife Barbara Jordan sat right beside him as cameras flashed in his direction. They're both trustees of the Naples Children and Education Foundation.
"We're working towards always keeping children in the front of our minds," Barbara Jordan said.
