RM Amelia Island Top 10 sales

Mar 12th, 2017

AMELIA ISLAND, Florida (12 March, 2017) – RM Sotheby’s, the world’s largest auction house for investment-quality vehicles, reinforced its clear market leadership this past weekend by generating an outstanding $70.9 million in sales with 90 percent of all lots sold at its 19th annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance sale. A new benchmark for an Amelia Island auction, the impressive total comfortably exceeds the combined tally of all the other auctions held during this year’s Amelia weekend.

Leading RM’s string of 19 individual million-dollar-plus sales and claiming top honors of the 2017 Amelia Island auctions was a striking 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Cabriolet, one of only three examples sporting rare coachwork by Vanvooren of Paris (pictured top). Offered for public sale for the first time in its 80-year history, the highly original Type 57S sparkled under the auction lights during Saturday’s sale session, commanding $7,700,000. Just moments prior to the Bugatti’s sale, a well-known 1929 Stutz Model M Supercharged Coupe, one of only three supercharged Stutzes in existence, proved demand remains strong for great American Classics at auction, selling for $1,705,000 against a pre-sale estimate of $1/1.2 million. The strong sales price represents a new record for a Stutz at auction. Discover together the Top 10 sales.
