RM Sotheby’s has consistently conducted sales on its “Online Only” platform since March, with one auction taking place each month. Three of those sales have focused on the European market. RM’s final Online Only collector car auction this year wrapped up in November with $4.43M in total sales and 39 out of 78 vehicles successfully selling for a 50 percent sell-through rate.
Consignments for this Online Only auction ranged from prewar American to modern Italian, and we’ll take a look at the most significant of the cars here. Because of RM’s detailed photography and provided inspection reports, we could also get a clearer picture of each car’s condition than we ordinarily do from other online auctions.
RM will now be gearing up for its January sale in Arizona, which will have a live component but will also rely heavily on the online audience it has successfully cultivated through 2020.
