With the coronavirus pandemic forcing the cancellation of many of this year’s events, auction houses have reacted swiftly to the new environment by moving their physical auctions to online sales. RM Sotheby’s recently completed May sale set a new record for the highest price achieved at a dedicated online-only collector car auction; its two-owner Enzo with less than 1,250 miles from new selling for $2,640,000 (estimate $2,600,000 – 2,900,000).
