Sotheby's recently acquired a piece of the world's leading auction house for cars, the American house RM Auctions. The two houses had previously worked together on the sales of several collections, where Sotheby's were involved with the procurement in some way or another. In regards to the accelerating interest for expensive cars and the enormous price development that we've seen over the past few years it isn't unusual that Sotheby's have chosen to strengthen their brand in order to reach a wider audience. Today the auctions for veteran and racing cars net somewhere around 2 billion dollars. That is why Sotheby's bought 25% of RM Auctions with the option to increase their stake in the future.
