The recently merged RM Sotheby’s brings RM Auctions’ renowned classic car expertise and Sotheby’s international reputation together for a ‘level of exposure and expertise that no one else in this business can achieve,’ says Paul Darvill, European car specialist for Sotheby’s. Although the market has slowed recently, there are opportunities. Darvill points to 80s and 90s performance cars and everyday cars from those decades, such as the Golf GTI and the Peugeot 205, which are growing in value. ‘The thing to do is to think about the generational shift and the collectors who’ll be around in ten or 20 years’ time,’ he says. ‘I think it’s going to be the 80s and 90s.’
