The legendary Team Cunningham Le Mans 1963 Jaguar E-Type Lightweight Competition Coupe sold for
$8-million, eclipsing the world record Bonhams set in January for a Lightweight Competition E-Type. Other
impressive results included the 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB Alloy that sold for $3,080,000, the single owner 1990
Ferrari F40 that made $1,457,500, and the stunning 1955 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America that was
bought for $1,265,000.
Additionally, the multiple concours winning 1957 BMW 503 Cabriolet sold for $583,000 – making a new world
auction record for the model, while the 1986 Ford RS200 Evo and the 1985 Audi Sport Quattro, each selling
for $550,000 and $484,000, respectively, demonstrated the strong interest in excellent rally cars. The historic
and handsome 1913 Premier Model F also achieved a new world auction record for the model when it made
$341,000, and the AC Ace-Bristol sold well when it achieved $451,000.
In all, this year’s sale achieved a respectable 80% sell-through rate for a total of $56,430,000.
Said Jakob Greisen, VP of Bonhams Motoring, “We were very pleased to see so many single owner cars
consigned to the sale and we’re very pleased with the strong results.”
Bonhams’ Quail Lodge auction was also host to three very historical, very significant early racing
automobiles: a 1913 Indianapolis Peugeot L45, 1908 Prinz Heinrich Benz and 1908 Mercedes Simplex. The
rare trio was on display to announce the forthcoming sale of the Lindley and Ann Bothwell Collection near
Los Angeles on November 11th. “With the Monterey Car Week being the most prestigious and largest
attended collector car event in the world, we couldn’t imagine a more perfect venue for announcing this
tremendous collection,” said Malcom Barber, Bonhams Co-Chairman, who added that more details on the
Bothwell Collection will be released shortly.
