This 1958 F.M.R. Tg 500 Tiger hammered down for an incredible $322,000 at RM Auctions’ Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum sale.
Who knew microcars could be this hot?
Last weekend’s RM Auction at the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum in Madison, Georgia generated an astonishing $9.1 million in sales, with 100 percent of the lots—200 cars and 284 lots of collectibles—reported sold.
“In terms of its diversity, international interest and prices realized, the sale was truly unprecedented. Never before had such a large group of microcars been offered to the public at one time in one location,” says Alain Squindo, Vice President, RM Auctions.”It definitely set a new benchmark for this type of private collection sale.”
We’ll say. The top 12 sales all hammered down for well into six figures, from the F.M.R pictured above at $322,000 to a 1957 Jurisch Motoplan Prototype that found a new home for $103,500. And you know what? We get it. Microcars are historically fascinating and aesthetically compelling vehicles. Below are just a few weird and wonderful machines from the sale.
