Our 25 Favorite RM Auctions of 2014

In the past year, a lot of beautiful, fast, and important cars commanded megabucks at various auctions. Recently, RM Auctions dropped a huge archive full of gorgeous photos of what it considers the best cars it sold this year. You can check that out right here. It's a great list, and with so many fine, fine rides that've been featured, it would be a shame to not revisit them one last time.

The Supercompressor top 25 RM Auctions of 2014 isn't based on monetary value, raw speed, or even historical relevance, but on the intangibles that made people fall in love with them in the first place. Below you'll find all of them, large enough for your desktop wallpaper, along with the price each car ultimately garnered. Follow the links to the original SC articles if you want to see exactly why each car is so special.
