RM Auctions held its biennial Italy sale in conjunction with the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on May 25, 2013, in Villa Erba. This year’s event boasted a remarkable array of cars, with a Ferrari from virtually every decade, six Bugattis, a pair of Cisitalias, and a rare 1905 Fiat 60hp 5-passenger touring car. The auction was limited to 40 lots (including two boats), of which 32 sold — several at world-record prices — for a total of $35.5M. RM’s 2011 sale, by way of comparison, tallied $32.5M from the sale of 23 cars.
