RM Auctions Posts a Spectacular $95 Million in Monterey  

The impressive results represent the highest individual auction tally in RM's history and, significantly, an almost 20 percent increase on last year's record $80 million Monterey sale, albeit generated by a smaller offering; this year's sale featured an elite, handpicked selection of 120 of the world's finest automobiles compared to 144 motor cars offered at the 2011 sale. Illustrating RM's expertise in the presentation and marketing of blue-chip automobiles at auction, as many as 20 vehicles realized million-dollar-plus results, with five lots achieving individual prices exceeding $5 million, and numerous new auction records set.

'We are absolutely delighted with the results from our Monterey sale, which not only reflect our best performance to date but demonstrate the continued strength of the collector car market and high global demand for investment-quality automobiles,' says Rob Myers, Chairman and Founder, RM Auctions. 'The sale truly captured the attention of the world's elite collectors, and the results once again prove that RM continues to set the standard for collector car auctions with its high-caliber consignments, impeccable presentation, unparalleled client service, and accurate estimates provided by our expert team of car specialists. We look forward to continuing the momentum with our upcoming fall auctions in Hershey, Dallas, and London.'

The event's top seller was a 1968 Ford GT40 Gulf/Mirage Lightweight Racing Car, P/1074, achieving a new world record for an American automobile sold at auction with a remarkable sales price of $11,000,000 (pictured above). The first, by serial number, of several lightweight GT40s built for the J.W.A./Gulf team, this exceptional racing car was completed in 1968 and carries an incredible history from new. Finished in the Gulf team colors of Powder Blue with a Marigold stripe, it raced extensively throughout 1968 from Daytona to Le Mans, as well as the Le Mans trials at the hands of Jacky Ickx, before it was sold to Solar Productions in 1970 and used as a camera car in Steve McQueen's Le Mans. Providing one of many thrilling auction moments across the two-day sale, the GT40 spurred a lively bidding war in the room; its world record price earning a standing ovation from the crowd.

Additional lots surpassing the $5 million mark included a magnificent trio of Ferraris, including a hugely desirable 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder, chassis 3319 GT (pictured), for $8,580,000; an exceptional 1955 Ferrari 410 S Berlinetta, chassis 0594 CM, which set a new world record for a closed Ferrari at $8,250,000; and a coveted 1956 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Berlinetta 'Tour de France', chassis 0585 GT, which fetched $6,710,000. Rounding out the group of $5 million-plus sales, the supremely elegant, Pebble Beach 'Best of Show' winning 1938 Horch 853A Erdmann & Rossi Special Roadster achieved a strong $5,017,000, to set a new world record for an Horch sold at auction.

'The results indicate a particularly strong market for 1950s and 1960s sports and racing cars, with many new records achieved within this category across the Monterey weekend,' adds Shelby Myers, Managing Director, RM California. 'Whether this reflects a change in existing collector tastes is unknown, however it certainly shows that interest in makes such as Ferrari, Aston Martin and other post-World War II sports cars is at an all-time high. It is important to note the trend was not only evident in the multi-million-dollar bracket, but 'best of category' examples across all levels,' Myers adds.

Other notable auction results include:

• a race bred 1960 Aston Martin DB4GT, the fourth DB4GT produced, exceeded its pre-sale estimate, selling for a strong $2,035,000;

• a 1953 Bentley Continental R-Type Fastback Sports Saloon set a new world record for its model, achieving a superb $1,622,500;

• a highly original 1965 Shelby 289 Cobra Mk II, just one lady owner from new, well-surpassed its pre-sale estimate, selling for $792,000;

• a 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS 'Chairs and Flares' attracted fierce bidding, realizing a world record price of $467,500; and

• a perfectly preserved, delivery-mileage 1989 Ferrari Testarossa doubled its pre-sale estimate to enter the history books with a world record price of $264,000.

Reflecting RM's global clientele, the strong results were generated by registered bidders from 25 different countries on the telephone, over the Internet, and assembled in the standing-room-only venue.
