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.
“‘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.”
