THE OFFICIAL AUCTION HOUSE OF THE ESTEEMED CONCORSO D'ELEGANZA VILLA D'ESTE

Held every two years since 2011, RM Sotheby's exclusive Villa Erba sale takes place along the beautiful shores of Lake Como, Italy, just one hour north of Milan. Held in partnership with the revered Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, the events combine to make for an unforgettable celebration of the hobby in one of the world's most picturesque locations. Whether you fly in or dock along the shores, the Villa Erba auction is the pinnacle of taste and exclusivity, offering the perfect opportunity in which to present some of the world's most significant blue-chip vehicles.

RM Sotheby's concluded its fourth successful Villa Erba sale on the shores of Lake Como in 2017, grossing an impressive €25,355,850 and setting a number of new auction records for individual models. Proving that the market for fine pre-war cars remains very strong, the star of the night was the 1937 Talbot-Lago T150-C SS 'Goutte d'Eau' Coupé by Figoni et Falaschi, affectionately known as the 'Teardrop.' Considered by many as one of the most attractive, aerodynamically inspired automotive designs, the car achieved an incredible €3,360,000.
