Bonhams Announces New Venue For Year-End Sale

The Bonhams end-of-year Important Motor Cars & Fine Automobilia sale will be held at Mercedes-Benz World, it was announced in an August 17 press release. The December sale is traditionally Bonhams’ largest of the season, by value and volume, and offers a wide variety of motor cars spanning all periods, types, and marques.

James Knight, Group Head of Bonhams Motoring department, said, “Having attended a couple of functions at Mercedes-Benz World, I had cast an envious eye over the building. If I were to design a purpose built motor car auction facility, it would not be far off what the venue provides, it really has everything. I am really excited about this venue—it ticks every box for us, our sellers and buyers.”

In addition to its remarkable setting—within the banking of Britain’s first ever purpose-built racing circuit, the famous Brooklands Motor Course—the avant garde venue is excellently equipped, featuring two refreshment areas, Cafe 1886 and the Gullwing restaurant, with the prestigious new Brooklands Hotel directly adjacent. 

Shuttle service directly links Mercedes-Benz World and Weybridge railway station, with convenient connections to London, the M25, and Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.
