Collector car auction season, Monterey week, is nearly upon us.

Last year in August 2017, $341 million of collector cars were sold during the auctions we tracked ($133 million changed hands at RM Sotheby events alone!). Compare that to 2014 when $362 million worth of collector cars successfully went under the hammer during August.

The market looks strong again this year, and potentially likely to break the record year of 2014 for total sales amount.

Below you’ll find the key auctions taking place during Monterey week. You don’t need to be a buyer to view many of the lots up for auction with many offering paid admissions to the general public before the auctions get underway. If you can’t make the event we’ll be tracking all the sales live as they come in and uploading the data to our database of 350,000+ collector car auction sales.
