Bonhams returns to the beautiful Monterey Peninsula for its 18th annual Quail Lodge Auction, featuring the world's finest and most exclusive collectors' motorcars displayed in a stunning setting on the grounds of the Quail Lodge & Golf Club. One of the landmark events taking place during the must-attend "Monterey Collector Car Week", the Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction is the longest-running auction on the Monterey Peninsula, and is therefore one of the true highlights during a week of activities that serves as the focal point for the California summer motoring season.
With 117 cars on offer and a 92% sell-through rate, the 2014 two-day auction, which many dubbed the "sale of the year," brought a total sales figure of $108,000,000 (£64,578,327 or €80,628,104).
In addition to the record-making sale of the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, which made history when it achieved over $38-million, making it the most valuable car to ever be sold at auction, Bonhams went on to set several more records throughout the auction.
Bonhams is pleased to hold its 18th annual Quail Lodge Auction in conjunction with The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering 2015. Malcolm Barber, Bonhams Co-Chairman, adds, "it's been a pleasure to partner with The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering, one of the world's premier collector car events, and bring a truly blue chip selection of motorcars to Carmel."
