RM Sotheby’s is offering enthusiasts the chance to bid on supercar that they had posters about when they were kids. It holds a direct sale in Miami, Florida, in December 2022, limited to 60 premium models built between the 1970s and 2010.
The oldest car in category was a 1974 V12 Jaguar E-Type, though keep in mind that so far only 20 of the 60 available slots have been filled. At the other end of the spectrum, the newest model is now BMW M5 2014. If your automotive tastes remained stable in the 1980s, there is a wide selection of cars to choose from, such as the 1989 Lamborghini Countach 25 Anniversary Edition and a 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo with a flat nose switch. If your heart belongs to the 1990s, RM will sell a Lamborghini LM 002 1990, 1995 Ferrari 512 M and a 1996 Porsche 911 Turbo. Bentley model and a 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLR is one of the newer classics.
Automakers weren’t alone in their pursuit of speed, style and luxury in the 1980s; Tuners also fought hard for a piece of the pie, and RM’s sale reflects that. Collectors will have a rare chance to bid on some of the pieces before merging AMG models such as the 1982 Mercedes-Benz 500SL 5.0 (R107), the 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC 6.0 (C126) with wide body kit and the 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL 6.0 (W126). Alpina models are based on BMW were also represented: RM accepted a pair of 1987 B7 coupes based on the 6 Series and a B6 2.8 based on the 3 Series.
There are still some vacancies so it’s not too late to submit your car. If you’re a buyer, plan to arrive in Miami on December 9 and 10, 2022. First, we recommend clearing the space in your garage: every car is delivered without reservation, so the sale price will be the highest bid.
