Thanks to the RM Sotheby's Miami sales, the auction world ended the year on a high note.

Collecting Cars saw their 5th-highest sale ever this month, with this Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, and Bonhams rounded out the Top 10 with this impressive Lamborghini Miura P400S from its Bond Street sale.

Top 10 Flips & Flops, December 2022

A "Flip" or "Flop" is defined as a car for which we have a previous sale record, so we can determine the net gain/loss and time since the previous sale. Obviously, it's possible that cars have changed hands in private sales between these public listings, but it still provides great insight into the market to see which cars sold for substantial gains or losses over their previous sales.
