RM Sotheby's, the world's largest auction house for investment-quality automobiles, will hold its final sale of 2018 at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

The 8 December sale features more than 60 blue-chip automobiles representing a cross-section of significant eras and categories in collector car history.

Beyond the cars, significant memorabilia and automotive art features in the auction, including numerous pieces by artists—such as Ed Roth and Von Dutch—who gave birth to Kustom Kulture.

Coupled with the amenities of a world-class city, RM Sotheby's Los Angeles auction will provide a destination weekend for bidders from around the world.

The Grand Finale features the undisputed star of the sale, a 1956 Ferrari 290 MM–the final of just four built, driven by some of the greatest racing drivers of all time (Estimate: $22,000,000 - $26,000,000).

Additional highlights include a lineup of supercars across the ages, featuring a unique blue example of the original supercar – a 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV, along with several California hot rods, including the highly significant 1932 Ford "Lloyd Bakan" Coupe, as well as fascinating pieces of Steve McQueen memorabilia.
