13 - 14 AUGUST


RM Sotheby’s returns to the Monterey Conference Center 13–14 August for our 24th annual Monterey auction, set on the spectacular central California coast.

  • The Monterey auction is held during Monterey Car Week, a celebratory week packed full of activities for car enthusiasts, from various Concours-type events to VIP parties from nearly every luxury manufacturer, to the largest automobilia show in America – it is a must attend for every car nut!
  • RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction is a long-standing tradition during Car Week. Each year bidders hail from all four corners of the globe for our exciting evening auctions. 2021 will mark our 24th year at the Monterey Conference Center, recently rebuilt into a breathtaking, modern and state-of-the-art facility.
  • Topping the week is the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the top-ranking collector car competition in the world, honoring the artistry and craftsmanship of historic and elegant cars since 1950. Held on the famed 18th fairway of the world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Course, it is here that you will be able to catch a glimpse of the very best cars in the world.
