2010 RM Arizona Auction Thursday Night – Click above for high-res image gallery

RM continues to play a larger role in the auction weekend here in Arizona, adding an additional day of sales for this year that exclusively features British cars. That meant an evening full of saloons, drophead coupes and plenty of classic roadsters. And it's spelled litre, not liter.

There were British cars from most of the major marques – AC, MG, Jaguar, Bentley, Rolls-Royce and, of course, Aston Martin. There were literally dozens of classic Aston Martins up for grabs ranging from a 1931 1 1/2-Litre International 2/4-Seater to a 1966 DB6 Vantage.

The most important car of the night, however, was a gorgeous 1963 Aston Martin DB4 GT (above), one of just six lightweight models ever built. RM estimated that the car would sell for as much as seven figures, and it did just that with a hammer price (excluding auction fees) of $910,000. You can view our live photos in the high-res gallery below, and be sure to check back here for more coverage of the second night that will include the 1995 Ford GT90 Concept and the 1964 Shelby Cobra 427 Prototype.
