Continuing to push the boundaries of traditional automotive auctions, RM Sotheby’s announces a destination auction in the heart of Miami Beach, Florida. An incredible selection of modern classics, limited to just 60 expertly curated automobiles, will cross the block at the famed 1111 Lincoln building, an “above-the-horizon” space overlooking Miami Beach and The Magic City on 10 December 2022.
Gord Duff, Global Head of Auctions, says, “RM Sotheby’s has been a leader in the high-end automotive market for over 40 years, and our results this year are a testament to that—but we never stop adapting, growing, and redefining what an auction can be. Our team continues to explore new spaces, concepts, and destinations to ensure that RM Sotheby’s is always innovating. The Miami sale will harmonize architectural and automotive design at an exclusive event in the heart of Miami Beach.”
