  • On this #FeelGoodFriday, we're taking a look at the Richard Mille RM11-03 watch, which sold in #Monterey for an incredible $216,000 (est. $125k/150k)!
.
Donated in honor of our 40th Anniversary by Richard Mille himself, the proceeds from the #timepiece benefit the @ctcfoundationck, a deserving organization in our hometown of Chatham, Ontario. The donation will be used to help build a new children’s treatment centre in Chatham-Kent, where new facilities are desperately needed to assist children and their families with specialized services for physical, developmental, or communication needs.

  • On this #TBT, check out this wonderful ‘50s grand tourer set for #RMPortugal, 21 September.
.
Offered from the Sáragga Collection, this 1959 #Jaguar XK 150 3.8 Fixed Head Coupé features upgrades that engineers adapted from both the XK 120 and XK 140. Many believe the XK 150, particularly the FHC, was the best of the three models. Mechanically, the XK 150 benefitted from the addition of four-wheel disc brakes, the first time such a feature was ever fitted to a production car.
.
This XK 150 epitomises 1950s British style, wearing its original white exterior over handsome red leather interior and dashboard-mounted automatic transmission. Fitted with its original 3.8-litre engine, it also produces an impressive output of 220 hp.
.
This #Jag was the last of the line for the XK cars, and every Jaguar enthusiast should own one. Don’t miss your chance to bid. See more and register at the link in our bio!

  • #RESULTS: We led another Monterey Car Week this past weekend with more than $107 million in total sales and 74 percent of all lots sold. With registered bidders from 43 countries, we saw stand-out prices across all three auction nights.
.
Top seller was the 1994 McLaren F1 “LM-Specification”, the world’s most revered modern supercar, which sold for a record-breaking $19,805,000!
.
Another record-setting moment came when the 1965 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 sold for $6,385,000 on Thursday during ‘An Evening with Aston Martin’!
.
On Saturday, Ferraris took top billing, with highlights led by the Classiche-certified 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, which achieved $8,145,000. The Ming Collection, an exceptional group of 7 all-red, incredibly low-mileage Ferraris also brought strong prices, with nearly all lots reaching or exceeding high estimate. Leading the group was the rare 2006 Ferrari FXX, which sold for $3,525,000, setting a new world record for the model at auction.
.
Additional highlights include:
.
- A 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Shooting Brake - $1,765,000
.
- A 1965 Ford GT40 Roadster Prototype - $7,650,000

  • TONIGHT: THE ANCESTOR
.
After months of anticipation, the antecedent of Porsche’s historical evolution, the oldest car to wear the iconic P O R S C H E letters, the 1939 #Porsche Type 64, is crossing the #RMMonterey block this evening at the @montereyconferencecenter.
.
The Type 64 represents the prewar genesis of one of the greatest postwar car marques, the missing link between Volkswagen and the 356 No. 1, and its design signaled traits we’ve seen throughout seven decades of Porsche production in some of the legendary marque’s most sought-after models.
.
Highly documented, unrestored, and having had just three owners since the Porsche family themselves, the Type 64 is truly an automotive artefact.
.
Watch Day 3 of #RMMonterey live at the link in our bio beginning at 5:30pm PT.
