RM Monaco catalogues now online  RM Auctions returns to Monaco next month, May 11 – 12 for its biennial sale at the Grimaldi Forum. Coinciding with the 8th Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, the upcoming sale follows a record-setting debut performance in 2010 which saw the company achieve over €33 million in sales. Next month's sale - one of the most important collector car events to be held in Europe this year - is set to continue the momentum, presenting an elite, handpicked selection of more than 90 blue-chip automobiles along with approximately 100 motorcycles from the acclaimed Saltarelli Ducati Collection. The sale will further cater to discerning motorcycle collectors with the exclusive offering of two Ducati Desmosedici GP machines, a GP10 raced by Casey Stoner and a GP11 raced by Valentino Rossi, presented directly from the Ducati Corse racing department within the Ducati factory in Bologna, Italy.

Notable sale highlights include a superb roster of Ferraris, including one of two 1957 Ferrari 625 TRC Spiders ever built; a 1966 Ferrari 206 S Dino Spyder, offered for the first time in 40 years; and the world-famous Ferrari-engined Hydroplane racing boat, ARNO XI. Also on offer, a pair of Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 sports racing cars; a beautiful, ex-Fangio 1950 Talbot-Lago T26 GS with one of the most complete racing histories in the world; the 1958 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I 'Honeymoon Express' Two-Seater Drophead Coupe, one of the rarest and most important post-war coach built Rolls-Royces in existence; and the 1968 Rondeau M378 which has taken more 24 Hours of Le Mans starts than any other in history.
