Monterey Car Week: day two auction results


With RM Sotheby's, Bonhams, and Gooding joining Worldwide, Mecum and Russo & Steele for their Friday auctions, total sales for the week to date surpassed $190-million.

The two stand out results were the world record price set for an American car at auction($22million for a 1936 Duesenberg SSJ) and the sale, at $21,455,000, of the historically important 1963 Aston Martin DP215 Competition Prototype .

905 cars have now crossed the block in the first two days of auctions, and with a sell through rate of 60% and an average price of $350,065, results now compare well against 2017. For day one's results, click here, and for the remarkable day three (the final day) results, click here.

More Monterey...

Dependent on which criteria you use to view success, both RM Sotheby's and Gooding & Co can claim to be the pre-eminent auction house so far. Average sales price was higher at Gooding, but RM Sotheby's had a higher grossing auction. Sell-through rates were near-identical, so honours are probably even at halfway through the week.
