Russo and Steele Collector Automobile Auctions has announced a new auction venue, joining the busy car week on Amelia Island, Florida, in March 2019.
The fourth auction location for the company based in Scottsdale, Arizona, will take place over two days during the week leading up to the famed Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, held annually in early March. About 250 vehicles are expected for the inaugural auction.
Russo and Steele will join five other auctions that happen during the week: RM Sotheby’s, Gooding & Company, Bonhams, Motostalgia and Hollywood Wheels. With three other annual auctions – Scottsdale in January, Newport Beach, California, in June and Monterey, California, in August – Russo and Steele will mount a yearlong schedule of sales events in its signature “auction in the round” staging format.
“This once again, puts Russo and Steele directly at the epicenter of another major American car week event, and much like our other venues, our team has established a long-term agreement with a host that will perpetuate the ‘only at R&S’ mandate we sought,” Drew Alcazar, president and chief executive of the auction, said in a news release. “Visceral, emotional.”
