RM Auctions plans to sell a handpicked roster of 120 blue-chip collector automobiles when it returns Jan. 15 and 16 to the Arizona Biltmore Resort Spa for the 16th annual Arizona sale.
A trio of “iconic European supercars” is among the early highlights for the auction, and other offerings include sports and racing cars, prewar classics, and poster cars of the 1970s and 1980s.

“We’re excited to return to the Arizona Biltmore for our 16th consecutive year. Our Arizona sale consistently kicks off the season on a strong note and we look forward to continuing that tradition in January,” said Ian Kelleher, Managing Director, RM Auctions West Coast Division.
“Add in the fact that the Arizona Biltmore is also home to the Arizona Concours d’Elegance just days prior to our auction, and it is certainly a must-visit destination during Arizona Auto Week.”
