RM ACHIEVES ITS BEST-EVER EUROPEAN SALE RESULTS WITH INCREDIBLE €41 MILLION MONACO SALE
RM | SOTHEBY'S
Boasting a sale total of €41,355,430 and with an incredible 93 percent of all lots sold, RM Auctions has once again set the collector car market on fire with an incredible performance in Monaco. Taking place alongside the Grand Prix Historique de Monaco, the sale saw records tumble as an international audience of bidders scrambled to secure some of the finest historic sports and racing cars ever offered at auction.
With a packed auction room and strong bidding via both telephone and the Internet, the attending audience was treated to an electric atmosphere which lasted through to the final of the 90 lots offered. The top-selling car of the night was the simply stunning and ultra-rare 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C with coachwork by Scaglietti. Chassis 09067 is the ninth of only twelve such cars produced and perhaps the most original example of its kind, therefore presenting a very rare opportunity indeed. The hammer finally fell at a record-breaking €5,712,000, making it comfortably the most valuable fixed head Ferrari 275 ever sold at auction.
