RM Sotheby’s – Monterey 2020

14th August 2020 - 15th August 2020

RMS Ferrari 250 GTO

Set for the original Monterey live auction week, Online Only: SHIFT/Monterey will open for bidding on 6 August, with lots beginning to close 13 August, and will present approximately 150 exceptional collector cars on rmsothebys.com—an offering of a calibre never before seen in an online sale. The online Monterey sale will not only build on RM Sotheby’s historic Monterey results but also on the success of the company’s Online Only auctions over the last several months, including its recent shift of the Palm Beach auction to the virtual platform.

The new format is backed by the RM Sotheby’s experience, harnessing an expert team of car specialists, start-to-finish concierge-level service, transparent research, and global network reaching collectors in more than 75 countries—all via a secure, proprietary online platform. Additional digital components and new media formats will be implemented before the auction to enhance the bidder experience, while RM Sotheby’s further utilizes its numerous secure global locations to physically showcase consignments for a limited preview ahead of the sale.

Early car highlights and additional details for Online Only: SHIFT/Monterey, including bidder registration and bidding terms of business, will be announced in the coming weeks. RM Sotherby’s are inviting interested consignors to contact an RM Sotheby’s Car Specialist to discuss entering their important car or collection.

RM Sotheby’s returns to the Monterey Conference Center 14–15 August for their 23rd annual Monterey auction, set on the spectacular central California coast. The Monterey auction is a long-standing tradition held during the celebratory Monterey Car Week, which is packed full of activities for car aficionados, including concours-type events, VIP parties hosted by luxury manufacturers, and the largest automobilia show in America—it is a must-attend for enthusiasts from around the world.
