Amelia Island

14 March 2015

The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island, perched on the sun-kissed coast of Northeastern Florida, provides a grand atmosphere for this well-established annual sale. This setting is surpassed in beauty only by the vehicles on offer, as the property’s stunning ocean-front lawns provide a spectacular backdrop for the auction cars, which comprise a superb mix of important and historic sports and racing cars and elegant coachbuilt classics. Since the inaugural Amelia Island auction in 1999, RM has been the principal sponsor and official auction house of the esteemed Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. This event honors a significant automobile personality each year and showcases unique and historic automobiles of all eras.
