Three cars sold for more than $10 million at auction this year, although none touched the $16 million that Gooding achieved for a 1957 Ferrari 250 TR in 2011, according to blog.hemmings.com.

Gooding, RM and Bonhams were the only auction houses to make the list, although Artcurial and Mecum both sold cars for more than $5 million, as well. Seven of the top 10 sold in Monterey, with two more at Bonhams' extraordinary Goodwood sale and one at RM in Monaco, it says.

Let's take a look at some of the most expensive cars sold at auctions in 2012.
