Classic & Sports Car – Aston Martin and RM Sotheby's announce deal

Aston Martin might've entrusted the sale of '2 VEV' to Bonhams, but that was last month – the manufacturer has announced a new partnership with RM Sotheby's and sealed the deal with an impressive Pebble Beach sale.

The gavel fell at $21,455,000 for the one-off 1963 Aston Martin DP215 Grand Touring Competition Prototype raced by Phil Hill and Lucien Bianchi at Le Mans in 1963 – and it is the final David Brown competition Aston Martin.

RM Sotheby's is now the manufacturer's 'Official Auction Partner' and will hold an annual Aston Martin-only sale at Monterey Car Week from 2019.

“What a great way to start this exciting new partnership,” said Paul Spires, President of Aston Martin Works. “The market for historic cars is booming so it is vital that Aston Martin is represented by the best auction house in the business.”
