Preeminent international auction house, RM Auctions, will extend their 30 years of experience in the collector car hobby to the realm of the online marketplace next month with the launch of its exclusive online auction, premiering August 9, 2009. Designed to provide a convenient and credible means of conducting business over the Internet, this exciting and new collector car auction experience will offer valued clients a cyberspace alternative to RM’s traditional auction venues.
Anticipation is mounting for the August 9 event with over 70 important and desirable collector cars set for the ‘virtual’ auction block. Exciting new additions to the ever-growing auction line-up include: a fully-documented, two-time NCRS Top Flight 1972 Corvette 454, with original paint, body and interior; a rare 1966 Plymouth Belvedere Hemi 426, one of only 79 produced, documented by Certicard and Govier Inspection and boasting just 32,000 actual miles from new; and a 1937 Cadillac LaSalle, one owner from new with 74,000 original miles.
Scheduled to begin LIVE at 12 noon EST on August 9, each car will be auctioned individually one at a time at an approximate pace of 40 cars per hour, similar in fashion to a traditional RM auction yet held completely online.
The auction will be facilitated via a secure online bidding interface that has been specially tailored for RM’s bidders. Designed to be user-friendly, the new bidding console will be fully integrated into the RM website, removing the need to visit an external site in order to participate.
