RM Sotheby’s Announces Final Amelia Island Auction

RM Sotheby’s will return to Amelia Island for the 24th and final year on March 3, 2023. The auction will feature an outstanding selection of the world’s most sought-after, blue-chip automobiles.

Bill and Jane Warner started the Amelia Island Concours 25 years ago and it became a staple event in the collector car world, and on RM Sotheby’s annual auction calendar. Starting with a desire to raise funds for local charities, the Warners used their unique skills and deep, meaningful connections in the car world to create a truly world-class experience. Over the years, the two visionaries raised more than $4 million for local charities. 

With the event under new ownership, RM Sotheby’s believes it is time to seek a new home for its spring auction.

The final 2023 auction is to be held in a new, bespoke venue on Lynndale Road that seamlessly integrates the experience of the world’s preeminent auto auction with the natural beauty of the Florida coast. With the design process already underway, the venue will be the perfect setting for a memorable goodbye to Amelia Island. 

Plans are already underway to create a new and exciting event at a new location in March of 2024.

“After nearly a quarter-century as the original and official auction of the Amelia Island Concours, it became a tradition that was loved by all and now, 2023 will be our last year. We plan to leave the island with a truly unforgettable sale as our team is working hard to secure a selection of the best collector cars. Our team is looking forward to what is to come and what we believe will be a spectacular new event in 2024.” said Gord Duff, Global Head of Auctions.
