Bonhams releases preview of 75th Goodwood MM sale


Ahead of its 75th Members Meeting sale next month, Goodwood has revealed a number of the cars going to auction.

From a 1966 Ferrari 330GT 2+2 Series 2 Berlinetta to a 1913 Talbot Sports 15hp two-seater, the models set to be sold are as varied as they are sought after.

A 1961 Aston Martin SP214 Replica GT Competition Coupe is expected to fetch the most at the auction, with an estimate of between £600,000 and £700,000.

This model was built between 2010 and 2014 from the remains of two Aston Martin DB4s and is an exact replica of racer Brian Hetreed's car, chassis '0195', in which he tragically crashed and died during the 1964 1,000km Nurburgring race.

Second on the lot list is a 1903 Clement 12/16hp rear-entrance Tonneau car. Valued at £250,000 to £300,000, this French model was used as a clown's car in the Kangaroo Grounds in Melbourne for many years, before being brought back to the UK and restored by specialists. It has since taken part in the London-to-Brighton Veteran Car Run.

In a digression from the vintage, the third most pricey motor going to Goodwood is a 1968 Ford Escort Mk1. Expected to sell for between £200,000 and £250,000, little has been revealed about Chassis no. BB48GP18167, but with racing badging and in an excellent condition, it is one to watch out for.

The aforementioned Berlinetta is next up, with a listing of between £180,000 and £220,000, followed by a £160,000 to £200,000 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster.

A second E-Type Roadster, from 1961, is expected to make around £10,000 less.

With an estimate of between £140,000 and £180,000, the 1913 Talbot 15hp Sports two-seater is seventh on the list.

Also offered at the sale is a 1962 Bentley S2 Continental Sports Saloon, worth £120,000 to £150,000, and a 1934 Aston Martin 1.5-litre Long Chassis Tourer.

With dozens more models in the line up, the sale on March 19 at Goodwood, Chichester, promises to be a delight for car enthusiasts.
