Following the success of our 2011 sale at the Grand Palais in Paris, Bonhams is pleased to be returning there next February during Retromobile week. Already consigned are many outstanding motor cars, including the ex-works Bugatti Type 54 that was raced at Monza in 1931 by Achille Varzi.
Offering a new dimension for 2013, the Bonhams Motoring department will combine with 20th Century Decorative Arts and Wine Departments to conduct a series of sales at the historic Grand Palais venue.
