Bonhams’ annual auction at Quail Lodge is without question one of the most important auctions of collector cars in the world. Held in conjunction with the prestigious Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, this cornerstone of the global collector car calendar is now in its 19th year.
While the international headline-making 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO – which set a record at more than $38-million to become the most valuable car ever sold in auction history – may be the most famous, world auction records are made every year at Quail Lodge. Just within the last few years, for example, Bonhams has set models records for these premier marques: Austin-Healey, Bentley, Bugatti, Cobra, Ferrari, FIAT, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Lancia, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Napier and Rolls-Royce, among many others. Furthermore, recent sell-through rates at Quail Lodge average more than 90% and many single-owner collections have been 100% sold.
It’s with this long, successful track record that Bonhams is pleased to announce this year's sale on Friday, August 19th at Quail Lodge in Carmel, California.
