RM Sotheby’s Struts Its Stuff in Scottsdale

The Anglo-Canadian auction house featured the automotive world’s finest


Arizona Auction Week has plenty going on to keep an automotive enthusiast busy. Whether your tastes run towards Pontiac or Pegaso, you’ll be entertained with the dense richness of what you can witness on four wheels. As we at the Journal are an eclectic bunch, we feel an obligation to bring to you, our dear readers, coverage of RM Sotheby’s that ran the gamut, from a Volkswagen transporter to a LaFerrari and everything in-between.

This LaFerrari was bought for over $4 million.

Of course, Sotheby’s is a famous British auction house that primarily deals with art and jewelry, but they do have their place in the automotive world as RM Sotheby’s. Since 2015, Sotheby’s has had a 25% ownership interest in RM Auctions, a Canadian auction house that was founded in the early 1990s after years of restorations and sales. Today, the company known as RM Sotheby’s claim to fame today is that it’s the world’s largest collector car auction house by total sales.

If you wish to see the sale price of each vehicle pictured, be sure to visit RM Sotheby’s website. Trust us: most of these are not vehicles for mere mortals, but considering we’re all ending up six feet under, embrace the egalitarianism end enjoy.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
