In its first Monterey sale since becoming RM Sotheby's, RM brought together a group of 150 cars of mostly spectacular quality and in some cases serious historical significance and was able to bring the highest ever total for a collector car auction at $172.9 million, including three cars that sold for undisclosed amounts after the auction. This is a healthy jump over last year's $143.4 million, although the sell-through rate was down a bit from 91 percent to 86 percent. A grand total of 36 cars sold for over a million dollars, and four of these were over $10 million. Six of the top 10 sales in Monterey were from RM, while the other four were from Gooding.
