HELD DURING THE RENOWNED RÉTROMOBILE WEEK
RM Sotheby's begins its 2019 European calendar in spectacular fashion with a return to Paris, 6 February, for its sixth annual sale during the world-famous Rétromobile show week. Held at the historic Place Vauban, the stunning grounds offer the perfect setting to present the finest sports, racing, and touring cars from both pre- and post-war periods.
The car-collecting world showed up in force in Paris in 2018. The company achieved a gross sales total of €23,745,225 with 83 percent of the 84 lots successfully sold. Demonstrating continued interest in low-production modern-era hypercars, the 2017 Bugatti Chiron was the night's top seller, achieving an incredible €3,323,750, while a 2005 Maserati MC12, one of just 50 ever built, took second billing at a final €2,001,875. Proving that blue-chip post-war classics also remain very much in demand, the beautiful and remarkably original 1958 BMW 507 Roadster Series II rounded out the top three, realizing €1,776,875.
