Gord Duff, Global Head of Auctions, RM Sotheby’s:
“We are honored to partner with Aston Martin as the marque’s official auction house and for what is set to be an incredible evening in Monterey.”
“RM Sotheby’s has long been the auction house of choice for the sale of important Aston Martin models, and our Monterey auction has proven time and again to be the best venue for the most exceptional examples, exhibited by the sale of the one-off DP215 last year, and the DBR1/1 in 2017 – the most valuable British car ever sold at auction. We’re looking forward to bringing some of the world’s best Aston Martin models to the single-marque sale, and the very early, long-term ownership DB5 we’ve consigned is a fantastic example of the fresh-to-market cars that collectors can expect.”

The appointment of RM Sotheby’s as official auction partner for Aston Martin was given the green light following an impressive sale rate of the most valuable Aston Martins ever sold at auction.
The partnership will celebrate the anniversary of Aston Martin’s historic 1959 win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as well as support the marque’s successful Second Century Plan, which is delivering a new Aston Martin model every year for seven years, and also promises two ‘specials’ per year, which are set to become collectibles of the future.
