CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RK Motors, the country’s leading retailer and restorer of investment-grade collector cars, today announced the launch of RKM Collector Car Auctions, the third addition to the company’s growing portfolio of successful automotive-based businesses. The auction house will host two events during 2013 at venues located in Pinehurst and Charlotte, NC, respectively.
“RKM Collector Car Auctions is an opportunity to take the insight we’ve developed and use it to expand our presence into new corners of the classic car marketplace.”
RKM Collector Car Auctions will hold its debut auction at Pinehurst on May 4, 2013, in conjunction with the inaugural Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance. The live sale will take place at The Fair Barn, a National Historic Landmark recognized as the oldest surviving early-twentieth century fair exhibition hall in North Carolina. Located within view of the renowned Pinehurst fairways and greens, the venue offers a unique atmosphere steeped in a rich tradition of historic events. Over 150 vehicles are expected to cross the auction block during the one day sale.
“Pinehurst is the perfect location to introduce RKM Collector Car Auctions,” stated Jamie Wiehe, director of auctions for RK Motors. “The city clearly holds a deep respect for history and a strong commitment to high standards. Both ideals correspond with our mission statement at RK Motors.”
A second auction is scheduled for Nov 1-3, 2013 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, NC. With nearly 500 cars crossing the auction block, over 180,000 square feet of space will be covered in classics during Charlotte’s largest collector car auction.
RKM Collector Car Auctions will continue RK Motors’ focus on selling world-class classic and high-performance cars. The auction house will utilize many of the same resources to hand-select the cars offered for sale at their events. Both auctions are open to dealers and private collectors from around the world. General admission tickets will also be available for those wishing to enjoy the thrill of the auction as a spectator.
“Having sold over 1,800 collector cars through our showroom, we’ve proven our capabilities as a dealership,” stated Joseph Carroll, president and CEO of RK Motors. “RKM Collector Car Auctions is an opportunity to take the insight we’ve developed and use it to expand our presence into new corners of the classic car marketplace.”
