RM Amelia Island 2015 – Top 10 Most-Valuable Auction Cars in 80 New Photos



RM Amelia Island 2015 Top 10  43Started this article to share an update on RM Auctions — which you may have noticed is now co-branded as RM Sotheby’s.

Just before the Amelia Island 2015 event in March, Sotheby’s announced a 25-percent equity share purchase of RM, based in Blenheim, Ontario. Sotheby’s is in the big three of global auction companies, so their interest in RM makes sense to broaden and co-mingle both buyer groups.

RM is certainly a powerhouse of an auction company, with its car sales generating massive interest among collectors and fans alike.RM Amelia Island 2015 Top 10  52

Amelia Island 2015 was no different: $60-million in sales in just a few hours.

Here is a ranker of the top 14 sale prices, with ten of those including some all-new photos from the event.

Which is your favorite? The Ferrari 250 Europa is probably the biggest charmer, despite earning much less than the green Ferrari that came in above $6-million for the number one slot.
