Preview Bonhams auction Paris

Grand Palais in Paris hosts Bonhams auction

During the Paris Retromobile classic car show, Bonhams has it’s annual Paris auction at the Grand Palais on Februari 8th.  Just as in last year’s auction during the Paris Retromobile, Bonhams has a Mercedes Benz 500E coming up for sale,  but the estimates are far under the hammer price in the 2017 auction.

I expect the 1965 Porsche 911 Coupe to be subject of some bidding. As we all know from 2018 on, Peter Auto has a 2.0 liter Porsche only race series, and this might be a good car to turn into a racer for someone who doesn’t have a car prepared yet.

The eyecatcher of the Bonhams Auction is the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring, first owned by His Royal Highness, Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan. The car is completely original and was restored to concours standard by ‘Porsche Classic’ accredited Porsche Geneva in 2017.
