LONDON (3rd May, 2013) – RM Auctions, the world’s largest collector car auction house for investment-quality automobiles, is delighted to announce that it has now become the official auction partner of the St James’s Concours of Elegance, which will take place from 5th-7th September  at St James’s in central London. As a result of the partnership, RM Auctions has changed the dates of its well-established London sale which has traditionally taken place in late October.

Peter Wallman, senior car specialist at RM Europe, said: “Our London auction has been a highly successful fixture on the global collector car calendar since 2007, but we are delighted to have established a partnership with the St James’s Concours of Elegance and to announce our new auction date to coincide with the event in early September. There are several exciting motoring events taking place in London and the south of England over that period, and it will be an exciting time to conduct an auction, particularly in partnership with such an exclusive event.”

As the official auction house partner of the St James’s Concours of Elegance, RM Auctions will have a presence at the event and the Concours participants will enjoy a drive across London to the auction venue in Battersea as part of the official programme on Saturday 7th September. The auction preview will take place on the 7th-8th September, followed by the auction on Monday 9th September.

RM Auctions’ annual Battersea sale is one of the most successful on the European collector car calendar. In 2012 the auction generated an incredible £13,866,000 ($22,393,638 USD) in sales.
