If you’re into cool ’80s and ’90s cars as much as we are, you’re going to love this news. RM Sotheby’s announced it will be auctioning off a massive 140-car collection full of automotive icons ranging from the early 1980s to the early 2000s. The cars will be spread across four different RM auctions in 2019, and feature some serious pieces of machinery.
RM Sotheby’s has yet to release the full list of cars, but there are some notable heavy hitters. From Germany come a host of pre-merger AMG cars, a handful of Alpina models, and several sought-after BMWs including an 850CSi and several M cars. There’s also a Porsche 928 GTS, a 911 Turbo 3.6, and a 2011 GT3 RS. Other notable European models are a Renault R5 Turbo, a manual-transmission Ferrari Superamerica, a 575M Maranello (also with a manual), an Aston Martin Vanquish S that’s been converted to a manual, and a Morgan Aero SuperSport. Additionally, there is a collection of Rolls-Royces, Jaguars, and Bentleys. From Japan come a first-gen Acura NSX, numerous Nissan 300ZXs, and, of course, a Mk4 Toyota Supra. Cars from Lamborghini, Mazda, Audi, Chevrolet, and Mitsubishi are also featured. Clearly, whoever curated this collection has impeccable taste.
RM’s Paris event in February will auction off just over 20 of the cars, followed by the company’s Amelia Island event in March, which will offer more than 10 cars. Then comes RM’s Ford Lauderdale auction, which will auction another 20 cars or so. Lastly is RM’s Germany event, which will offer the remaining 80-plus lots.
If you’re in the market for a sweet ’80s or ’90s icon, this collection will probably have the car for you. We’ll be keeping an eye out to see which cars pop up where, and will update this article once the full list becomes available.
