Stellar September 2017 Auction Calendar

After the seasonal lull in the auction world during the summer months, the September auction calendar is jam-packed with auctions featuring everything from fine art to jewelry and watches to luxury cars. See our featured auctions and the full auction calendar below.

RM Sotheby’s Ferrari – September 9th:

This is set to be the ‘most significant single-marque sale in auction history’, which is a bold accolade to back up. With RM Sotheby’s already being the market leader in sales of important Ferraris, this auction is set to feature classics, modern day super cars along with GT’s and racing cars. The most expensive of all Ferraris on display will be the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, with a high estimate of €9,500,000 ($11,328,000).

Being true to the authenticity of the event, the auction will take place at the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy. The event starts at 4:30pm CEST and will run for approximately 2-3 hours. Truly an event not to be missed for Ferrari enthusiasts.
