RM SOTHEBY'S ACHIEVES €23,317,290 AT BIENNIAL MONACO AUCTION DURING THE GRAND PRIX DE MONACO HISTORIQUE

At the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco on 12 May, RM Sotheby's held its biennial Monaco auction during the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique. The exclusive sale totaled €23,317,290, drawing global interest from bidders representing 36 countries.

Without a doubt, the Bugatti Veyron has secured its place in history as a modern automotive icon, which was reinforced by the fact that the example offered in Monaco, a 2015 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, was the night's second most valuable car, bringing €1,720,625 (Estimate: €1,200,000–€1,500,000). Featuring numerous unique Transformers-themed modifications, the light blue example with contrasting blue carbon fiber is the ultimate incarnation of the supercar and was “as new,” having only covered 840 kilometers.

Augustin Sabatié-Garat, Auction Manager, RM Sotheby's Europe, said following the sale: “Once again, we have enjoyed a strong sale in Monaco. We offered some fine cars and saw strong individual prices achieved across the board. It is clear the market is still robust enough for world-record results to be achieved.”
