A silver 1960 Aston Martin DB4GT, one of only 75 factory-built examples, generated the highest bid at RM Sotheby’s 10th Anniversary London sale, pulling in £2,408,000 to establish a new world record for a factory-bodied Aston sold at auction. It was joined in the spotlight by a handful of cars from a single-owner Porsche Collection that broke a number of world auction records as RM Sotheby’s enjoyed £21.65 million in total sales from a 76-percent sell-through rate.
The £1,848,000 paid for a 1995 Porsche 911 GT2 represented a new public auction record for a 911 GT2, surpassing the previous mark by more than £1 million, while the successful £974,400 bid for a 1993 Porsche 911 Turbo S Lightweight established a world auction record for a 964 series Porsche 911. Other new auction benchmarks were set by the £716,800 paid for a 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RS and the £403,200 brought in by a 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport.
