BONHAMS ANNOUNCE NEW MOTORING AUCTION FOR FRANCE AT CHANTILLY CONCOURSE D’ELEGANCE

Bonhams International auctioneers will conduct a brand new black tie evening sale at Chantilly Arts & Elegance, taking place in Chantilly, France, on 5 September 2015.
  • Bonhams record breaking motoring department announce the Chantilly Sale, a debut auction at the second edition of Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille
  • The brand new auction will be Bonhams second dedicated motoring sale for France, taking place at the countries top Concours event 
  • The sale will take place on Saturday 5 September 2015
Hosted in the grounds of Château de Chantilly, the Arts & Elegance event debuted in 2014, attracting a crowd of around 10,000 spectators, taking in the delights of the “Concourse d'Elegance" competition for modern concept cars, and a superb "Concourse d'Etat" for classic cars from around the world. The "Art & Elegance" event also plays host to fine art exhibitions, fashion shows, live music and various lifestyle exhibits, all on the grounds of the magnificent Château.
 
In addition to the Concours d’Elegance, the original kind of horsepower is in celebration at the event, with equestrian activities in abundance. Chantilly has a notable history with the equine community, home to Chantilly Racecourse and the Living Museum of the Horse, in addition to boasting the largest racehorse-training community in France. In 2005 the Château de Chantilly estate, including the famous Chantilly Racecourse, received a generous donation by the Aga Khan to restore the estate to the glorious location it is today.
 
 “We’re delighted to announce this brand new and exclusive motoring sale, taking place on the luxurious grounds of the Château de Chantilly. The event perfectly complements the motoring auction calendar, and will offer an additional sale for our European clientele,” said Philip Kantor, Bonhams European Head of Motor Cars.
 
“The concept is to offer a bespoke ‘Salon’ style auction, offering a limited number of very fine examples of Collectors’ Motor Cars, perhaps thirty or so carefully selected lots for the ‘black tie’ evening auction. Our partner, Peter Auto, has embarked on an innovative approach with Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille, creating a new style of Concours – and Bonhams is delighted to be part of it.”
      
Patrick Peter, Head of Peter Auto, said: "Bonhams is famous the world over for its auctions, in particular those featuring Collectors’ cars, so we're delighted that this renowned company will associate itself with our Chantilly Arts & Elégance Richard Mille event in addition to its presence at Spa Classic. The organisation of such a sale in September in Chantilly confirms the momentum generated by the event only a year after it was held for the first time." 
 
Founded in 1982, Peter Auto has earned an international reputation both in the field of historical and modern cars, as organisers of some of the most renowned motor racing events in the world.
