2016 Monterey Auctions - RM Sotheby's Friday


Most of the major lots sold at RM on Friday, and sold quite well. A record was set for the most valuable British car ever sold at auction—$21.78M for XKD501, the Ecurie Ecosse-entered Jaguar D-Type that won The 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1956. To put this into a bit of perspective, the previous British car record-holder was a 1962 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato (also sold by RM) for $14.3M this past December in New York.
