The most passionate car collectors and auto enthusiasts are expected to converge at one of the most highly-anticipated car events this year. RM Sotheby’s, renowned for its dedication to global car culture, is hosting an inaugural auction in Dubai on March 9 that will include three of the most coveted rides in existence. Not only will the most dedicated collectors get to feast their eyes on the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss, 2016 Koenigsegg Agera RSR and the 2023 Aston Martin Valkyrie Coupé, but they’ll also get to bid on these exquisite machines, and other lots, for a chance to take home a collectible of epic proportions.

The 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss is in a class of its own. This super-rare, open-top speedster boasts 641hp and a design inspired by the legendary 300 SLR race car. With only 75 models built, it’s a thrilling driving experience that merges high performance and historical significance. One of only three ever made, the 2016 Koenigsegg Agera RSR roars with a 1,160-horsepower V8, cutting-edge tech like hollow carbon wheels, and Koenigsegg’s innovative Dihedral Synchro-Helix doors, making it a hypercar masterpiece of engineering and rarity. Lastly, The 2023 Aston Martin Valkyrie Coupé defies tradition with its F1-inspired design and Cosworth-developed V12 hybrid engine. This 160-horsepower beast, limited to 150 units, blurs the lines between road and track, offering owners a chance to experience unbridled driving excitement.

Besides the three show-stopping cars mentioned above, other lots include famed classics and rare vehicles for a variety of automotive tastes. There’s the one of only 20, 2017 Centenario LP770-4 Coupe which celebrates Lamborghini’s 100th birthday dripped in black with red accents, a 1997 Ferrari F355 Spider, in Blu Tour de France offered with a pair of fitted Schedoni luggage pieces and a 2022 Ferrari 812 Competizione which represents the zenith of V-12 engineering prowess. These are only but a handful of a long list of rare rides offered by RM Sotheby’s.

RM Sotheby’s strategic expansion into the EMEA region is sure to bring a new level of distinction and excitement to Dubai. The historic auction itself will be held at the Concrete venue in Alserkal Avenue, Al Quoz district, known for its architectural significance as the first building in the UAE completed by the Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). Home to the City of Gold’s fine and contemporary art, the setting mirrors the prestige of the vehicles on offer.

RM Sotheby’s Dubai is a landmark moment, unveiling the world’s most exquisite collector cars amidst the city’s vibrant art and architectural wonderland. Attendees will be immersed in the convergence of innovation and history that rings in a new chapter for the global car community. The most dedicated car fanatics are welcome to witness a milestone event celebrating automotive excellence in the Middle East.
