RM Sotheby’s has shifted its annual flagship Monterey auction to the company’s proprietary Online Only sale platform due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns. Set for the original Monterey live auction week, Online Only: SHIFT/ Monterey will open for bidding on 6 August, with lots closing 13–15 August, and will present approximately 150 exceptional collector cars on rmsothebys.com—an offering of a caliber never before seen in an online sale. The online Monterey sale will build not only on RM Sotheby’s historic Monterey results, but also on the success of the company’s Online Only auctions over the last several months. Check out this brief video for a taste of what bidders can expect from Online Only: SHIFT / Monterey, powered by the global leader in collector car auctions. Visit rmsothebys.com to learn more.
