RM Sotheby’s drives home over €30 million in sales at Monaco auction


RM Sothebys – RM Sotheby’s stormed back to Monaco for another successful sale alongside the Grand Prix Historique. Conducting a single-day sale, RM Sotheby’s 2022 Monaco tally exceeded €30 million ($32,572,421) with an 82% sell-through rate.

1991 Williams FW14– Sold for €4,055,000 EUR ($4,271,943)

You could feel the energy in the packed room as all eyes fell on the pair of stunning Formula One cars offered from the private collection of former World Champion Nigel Mansell. It is an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire two completely original Formula One cars directly from their World Champion owner and driver and, as expected, both machines found delighted new owners. Selling for €1 million over the high estimate, the iconic ‘Senna Taxi’ 1991 Williams FW14 was the undoubted star of the show with a final sale price of €4,055,000 ($4,271,943) after a heated bidding battle. Equally as stunning and historic, Nigel Mansell’s 1989 Ferrari 640 crossed the block at €3,605,000 ($3,797,868). The success the Mansell Formula cars achieved is testament to their historical significance.
