Multiple world auction records were set for Porsche models as well. The 1996 911 GT2 Clubsport made
$1,105,000; the 1997 993 Turbo S sold for $489,000; 1989 930 Turbo “Slantnose” Cabriolet was bought for
$456,000; and the 1991 964 Carrera 4 achieved $516,800, among others.
The incredible 1921 Stutz Series K Bearcat – a motorcar that’s been in the same family since new – was
hotly contested among several bidders in the room and found a home with an American collector for
$478,000, setting a new record. Perhaps most fun of all was the bidding match for the sprightly 1948 MG TC
Midget. With a determined buyer in the audience and one on the telephone, the bids were lobbed as if it were
a tennis match and quickly climbed into record territory. With a final sales price of $112,000, the audience
erupted into applause.
Many more impressive results were achieved, particularly with the illustrious 1948 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500
Competizione Berlinetta, which was bought by a private European collector for $3,525,000, the rare 1937
Mercedes-Benz 540K Sports Roadster that sold for $3,277,500, and the beautiful 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Series
II Cabriolet that achieved $1,682,500.
“Our strength as an international business brought a carefully curated selection of cars together which was
appreciated by an equally broad cross-section of buyers,” said Rupert Banner, Bonhams Group Motoring
Director. Added Jakob Greisen, VP of US Motoring, “Fresh to market cars and especially cars with
documented provenance were a key focus, and collectors responded enthusiastically.”
