A matching-numbers 1958 BMW 507 Series II roadster — part of the Poster Car Collection — was high sale at €1,996,250 ($2,225,819) at RM Sotheby’s Paris Auction on February 6 at Place Vauban.

Total sales were €16.5 million ($18.4 million), with 75 percent of the lots sold.

A 1964 Porsche 904 GTS was second-highest sale at €1,917,500 ($2,138,013) and a 2012 Bugatti Veyron was in third place at €1,523,750 ($1,698,981).

“‘We enjoyed some strong results in Paris. The sale results for the Poster Car collection were an obvious highlight, with all but one of the cars selling strongly,” said Augustin Sabatié-Garat, Auction Manager, RM Sotheby’s Europe. “The results for that collection prove that there is still a very strong market for well-restored and original low-mileage examples of highly regarded marques and models at sensible pre-sale estimates. We also enjoyed stand out results across the market, demonstrating that great classics from the 50s and modern era hypercars, all have a willing community of buyers in today’s market.”
