RM Sotheby’s — Auto Auction
OFFERING THE WORLD’S FINEST
RM Sotheby’s (formerly RM Auctions) is the world’s largest auction house for investment-quality automobiles. Over the past 35 years, we have cemented our position as the market leader and successfully transformed the global automotive auction scene, helping elevate the perception of collector car auctions to premium events executed at the same level as high-end art auctions. Our vertically integrated range of services, from restoration to private treaty sales, auctions and estate planning, coupled with an expert team of car specialists, international footprint, focus on quality of product and inventiveness of presentation, provides an unsurpassed level of service to the global collector car market.
Our business has been fueled by a love of cars and a passion for producing results since 1976. To date, hundreds of million-dollar-plus automobiles have been sold at our catalogue auctions, which average a 95% sell-through rate. Buyers and sellers have come from all corners of the globe, and last year represented more than 60 countries, from Russia and the Middle East to Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
RM has a diverse calendar of annual auctions hosted throughout North America and Europe. Influenced by location, each event possesses a distinct character, ensuring that any automobile or collection will find the perfect auction venue on our roster. Currently, RM proudly holds four of the top ten all-time records for the most valuable motor cars sold at auction. In February 2015, RM Auctions formed a strategic partnership with Sotheby’s to become RM Sotheby’s, uniting the two companies for the full calendar of future automobile auctions.
