The 2021 RM Sotheby’s Monterey Auction has a whole blessing of automotive unicorns

We’re quickly approaching one of the highlights of the automotive calendar as RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction on August 14th draws near. To whet your appetite, we’ve selected 10 of the biggest ticket items — you might want to sit down for this one.

RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction is an event where even those with the planet’s deepest pockets can walk away with little more than lint and paperclips knocking around, after a successful bid. In anticipation of some record-breaking hammer drops, we’ve selected the 10 heaviest hitters for you to consider. We’ve already covered the two Porsches on the list; an icon of film and asphalt in the form of a Gulf-liveried 917K, and the lightest 911 ever - a 1968 911 R, however, there’s much more to sink your wallet into. Predictably, 40% of the list is made up of classic Ferraris, but that’s only to be expected when you consider how dominant they were in-period, and how gorgeous they remain to this day. However, we won’t spoil it for you, so take a look below!
