LONDON (21 April, 2017) – RM Sotheby's is delighted to announce its starring role in an all-new, glossy television documentary series that provides a glimpse into the thrilling world of collector car auctions. Titled Million Dollar Car Hunters, the series charts a full year in the life of RM's expert car specialists as they traverse the globe on a mission to bring the world's finest and most desirable collector cars to auction. The programme provides an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how the RM team identifies potential auction vehicles, researches their histories, and ultimately offers them for sale in some of the world's most glamourous auction locations.

Produced by Waddell Media, Ireland's leading independent television production company, and co-commissioned by BBC Worldwide and Channel 4, each episode follows three separate story lines featuring car specialists—or 'hunters'—on their detective trails to find some of the most coveted collector vehicles on the planet. Narrated by Arabella Weir, the show focuses on the 'thrill of the hunt' for RM specialists based out of London, Los Angeles and Chatham, Ontario, before climaxing with the real-life jeopardy of each auction. There are trials, tribulations, successes, surprises, disappointments, and more than a few laughs along the way. And then of course, there are the cars, with the show shining a spotlight on and sharing the fascinating histories of a truly diverse group of automobiles, from the multi-million-dollar Ferrari 290MM once driven by Fangio, to a Le Mans-winning Jaguar D-Type, the world's first Shelby Cobra, and even a hearse once owned by John Lennon and a rusting Iso Grifo 'barn find'.

Already launched to unanimous praise on BBC Brit in Poland and South Africa, and BBC Knowledge in Australia, the series promises to be a 'must see' for anyone who loves classic cars or simply has an interest in how an auction house goes about its fascinating business. Within the UK, the series will air on Channel 4 later this month under the title World's Most Expensive Cars, fronted by well-known personality and car expert, Ant Anstead. The Channel 4 series premiere is slated for Sunday, April 30, immediately following the station's coverage of the Russian Grand Prix. Additional global distribution will be announced in the coming weeks.

'We're delighted to have cooperated in the making of this series. All of us at RM believe we have the best jobs in the world, and it is such a privilege to be able to share the excitement and challenges of our work with a global audience,' says Ian Kelleher, Chief Marketing Officer, RM Sotheby's. 'We're enthusiasts to the core and hope the series not only conveys our incredible passion for the collector car hobby, but inspires others to join the fun. Whether you are a car-lover or not, I think you'll find the ten episodes highly compelling viewing. Our thanks go to Waddell Media, BBC Worldwide and Channel 4 for the opportunity to share a small piece of our world, and of course all of our valued clients who participated in the series.'

Jon-Barrie Waddell, Executive Producer at Waddell Media adds, 'We are privileged to have been allowed such unique access to RM Sotheby's and their specialists globally. It has resulted in an unprecedented exploration of the luxury classic car world, told through fascinating characters and stories, and most importantly, showcasing the world's greatest cars from all eras. It is not to be missed.'
