1961 Aston Martin DP214

TRACKSIDE TRIUMPH – BRITISH MARQUES STEAL THE SHOW AT BONHAMS GOODWOOD SALE

Bonhams third Goodwood Members’ Meeting Sale took place yesterday, Sunday 19 March, and saw success from start to finish with an 80% sell rate and a total of £5,624,147 achieved. The top lot, a 1961 Aston Martin DP214 Replica GT Competition Coupé realised £551,667.
British cars performed particularly well on home turf, with 7 out of the top ten lots coming from UK marques. A 1924 Bentley 3-Litre Red Label Speed Model Tourer achieved £281,500 and the ex-David Hobbs 1965 Lola T70 Mk1 Spyder sold to a telephone bidder for £270,300.
 
James Knight, Group Motoring Chairman at Bonhams, said: ‘We are delighted to see that our Members’ Meeting sale is going from strength to strength. As our first Goodwood sale of the season, it was exciting to see so many of the lots selling and such an enthusiastic crowd in the marquee.’ 
 
'With lots ranging from Edwardian hill-climbers to 21st century sports cars, Bonhams offering was typically diverse. As ever cars with significant historical and racing provenance were the most popular lots of the day, such as Captain Sir Malcolm Campbell’s 1913 Talbot 15hp, which achieved £169,500.’
 
Rally car enthusiasts were spoiled for choice at the sale; an ex-Alan Mann 1968 Ford Escort Twin Cam Competition Saloon (£200,000-250,000) realised £203,100 and a 1997 Subaru Impreza 22B-STi Limited Edition (£65,000-75,000) achieved a world-record breaking £113,500.
 
Illustrating the breadth of Bonhams offerings were a 1903 Clément 12/16hp 4-cylinder Rear-entrance Tonneau car which sold to a bidder in the room for £281,500 after a lengthy exchange and a 2007 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé achieved £169,500.
 
Other notable results included
  • 1966 Ferrari 330GT 2+2 series 2 Berlinetta realised £203,100
  • 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Coupé realised £191,900
  • 1957 Jaguar Mk1 3.4-Litre Sports Saloon realised £189,660
  • 1962 Jaguar E-Type 3.8-Litre ‘Flat Floor’ Roadster realised £180,700
Knight added: ‘Our sales here are always lively, with spectators coming from all over the world to enjoy the electrifying atmosphere of Goodwood and this year was no different.’
 
Bonhams will return to the Goodwood Estate twice more in 2017 – on 30 June for The Festival of Speed Sale and 9 September for The Revival Sale.
