Additional Highlights

Over the past decade, collecting significant cars has evolved into an exercise in connoisseurship, on par with collecting fine art–a pursuit that predates the invention of the automobile. In February 2015, RM formed a strategic partnership with Sotheby’s, one of the world’s oldest and most respected auction houses, to become RM Sotheby’s. This partnership adds over 275 years of experience in the auction and private sale of the world’s most desirable fine art and collectibles, as well as appraisals, collection management, financial services, and global marketing. The partnership has proven valuable in further strengthening RM’s role as an adviser, market maker, and financier in the collector-car industry. By working in concert with the Sotheby’s team and its network of 80 offices in 40 countries, RM has established the largest client network of any collector-car auction house in the world.
