Bringing world class expertise to the intuitive, former RM Sotheby’s forms Broad Arrow Group and Collectors Garage.
Veterans from some of the most prestigious part of the collector car industry have joined forces to form a new platform. Broad Arrow Group is a team of collector car experts who carry over 100 years of industry knowledge and experience. Their plan is to fill gaps that exist in the industry, and areas where enthusiasts want more support in, leading to an industry expansion of auctions, private sales, and finical services for car collectors. From that line of thinking, their new Collectors Garage, a dedicated source for buying and selling post-war sports, grand touring (GT), and rally cars.
When users take advantage of Collectors Garage, they get access to a dedicated private sales business that represents the first of of the group. Senior Car Specialists Barney Ruprecht, Alexander Weaver, and Donnie Gould and Director of Client Services Maddie Baker will lead the charge to focus on the private sales of high-quality collector cars. Cars already being offered on the site include 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400, 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight, 1983 Lancia 037 Rally Evo 2 Group B, a pair of Lancia Delta Integrale examples including an Evoluzione 16V Martini 5, and a 1990 BMW M3 Sport Evolution.
“The launch of Collectors Garage marks an important first step for Broad Arrow Group following the announcement of our formation last week. The estimated $25 billion collector car market is primarily driven by private sales transactions today, both in terms of value and volume. In a highly fragmented and competitive private sales market, we aim to be one of the most trusted advisors for car collectors and enthusiasts to buy and sell cars privately. Our team is dedicated to providing a highly curated portfolio of collector cars for immediate purchase, and we look forward to providing the best possible advice and service to our clients,” Kenneth Ahn, Chief Executive Officer of Broad Arrow Group, Inc. had to say about the venture.
Here are some of the highlights:
Highlighting the company’s debut announcement is the 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 (Offered At $1,750,000), a stunning car which was restored at the Lamborghini factory with the oversight of legendary chief test driver Valentino Balboni himself. Delivered new to Switzerland, it is not only a late production “thick chassis” example but also one of comparatively few examples finished in Miura Bleu, in this case with a Gobi interior, the same colors in which the car is presented today. Matching numbers, the car shows exceptionally well and is offered with an extensive history file.

The 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight (Offered At $1,750,000) is a thoroughbred example of the exceptionally rare M471 RS Lightweight cars, of which only 200 were originally built. Delivered new to Finnish racing champion Leo Kinnunen and accompanied with a full Andy Prill inspection report on file, this matching numbers, highly unique RS was fitted in period with original RSR elements such as the prototypical rear wing and wider rear fenders. Offered on behalf of a significant private collection, and in impressive original, well-preserved condition.

Another exciting highlight is the 1983 Lancia Rally 037 Evoluzione 2 Group B (Offered at $800,000). An excellent example of a racing legend from the Golden Era of all-out Group B rallying, this is the ultimate specification of the 037, of which only 20 examples were built. Campaigned extensively in period at World and European Rally Championship events by a roster of famed drivers, first by the factory and then the privateer Jolly Club team, it is extremely well documented from its racing days through to its tenure in the famed John Campion Collection. It has been Certified by Abarth Classiche, attesting to its originality and correctness throughout.
