One of the biggest events in car collecting is just three months away. Those who are interested in the most unique, quality vehicles know not to miss Monterey Car Week, which will take place from Thursday, August 15th to Saturday, August 17th. With 2018 being a record-breaking year, the 2019 event is highly anticipated. For more details about the event, keep reading top performer RM Sotheby’s official statement below:
Every August, the collector car world descends on the Monterey Peninsula for the ultimate celebration of the hobby. For over 30 years, RM Sotheby's Monterey sale has been the pinnacle of the collector car auctions, known for its innovative presentation and record-setting results. Along with all the auction excitement, Monterey Car Week is filled with a number of other hobby events, from historic racing to festivals and concours, which transform the area into a car lover's paradise. The week culminates with the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, where RM Sotheby's very own restoration team has won a remarkable six Best of Show honors.
RM Sotheby's celebrated a historic Monterey weekend in 2018 with a new record for the most valuable car ever sold at auction, selling a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO for $48,405,000. The 250 GTO championed RM Sotheby's most historic Monterey offering to date, which resulted in an overall total of $157,931,940 – one of the company's all-time top performances, the highest-grossing auction of Monterey Car Week, and a near 19 percent increase over 2017 results at the same venue.
