Motor Cars

Our Motor Car department is one of the auction world's most prolific departments and can offer the full spectrum by age and value. We are renowned for presenting world-class auctions of rare and significant collectors' motor cars, from the earliest veterans to modern supercars, often achieving world-record prices. Our global reach is complemented by our experienced and respected international team of specialists based in the UK, mainland Europe and across the USA.

You can buy and sell through auction at Bonhams - from Goodwood to Geneva, Monterey to Monaco - and schedule 22 auctions throughout the year in prestigious locations, often in conjunction with the world's most important motoring events. You can contact us directly to consign a motor car or visit our digital Selling Hub for estimates of value on consignments to future sales.

You can also buy and sell through our Private Sale platform. Bonhams Private Sales provide clients with a bespoke approach to buying and selling, outside of the auction calendar. Whether you are looking for a specific motor car or to sell your collection, our international team is on hand to offer our assistance and experience.
