RM Sotheby’s Sale to Feature “The Pinnacle Portfolio”

By Paul Joseph

The annual classic car sale in Monterey, California is this year promising the most significant and valuable private automobile collection ever presented at auction.

Taking place from August 13th – 15th, the RM Sotheby’s sale is to feature ‘The Pinnacle Portfolio’, comprising a superlative roster of the world’s rarest and most important post-war sports and supercars.

Among the cars going under the hammer will be one of the finest Ferrari 250 LMs in existence, a road-race hybrid 1998 McLaren F1 “The Road Going LM”, and the final Enzo Ferrari gifted to the late Pope John Paul II.

Shelby Myers from RM Sotheby’s said: “While many of the world’s most impressive collections were established in the public eye of the car-collecting world, The Pinnacle Portfolio was assembled with a clandestine, surgical precision unlike any other that has come to market.

“Its almost obsessive focus on perfection, rarity, and the superlative, irrespective of price, makes it the most significant and valuable private collection of motor cars ever presented at auction.”

He continued: “From Ferraris and Lamborghinis, to Bugattis and Porsches, an offering of this importance and rarity is absolutely unprecedented. A sure focal point of this year’s Monterey week, it provides the most serious car collectors an exclusive opportunity to own the pinnacle model of each of the world’s most celebrated marques.”

The Pinnacle Portfolio will be offered during an exclusive, standalone auction on Thursday, August 13.
