Last Wednesday’s RM Sotheby’s auction marked the 10th Anniversary of their London auction. In total they sold 21.65 Million GBP worth of cars in Battersea Evolution as bidders from over 30 countries pushed up the prices on some remarkable cars.
The London auction was hot and the results are there to show for it. Some cars sold for as much as triple their estimate. A Porsche collector brought some of the showstoppers to London. This single-owner Porsche collection scored headlines around the world as the 1995 Porsche 911 GT2 is hammered at an incredible 1,848,000 GBP – well over 2 million Euro. The top seller of the evening is a 1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT.
