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