Classic Car Auction

The Estate has played host to the annual Bonham Aston Martin Sale and Aston Martin Owner’s Club Concours D’Etat.

On the Friday and Saturday the auction, featuring 237 lots with many of the cars being on display, realized a total of almost £4.5 million. Bids came in from across the globe and were coordinated by phone, online and in the salesroom marquee located on the lawn in front of Englefield House. The Saturday evening was rounded off with an exclusive dinner for 140 in our Long Gallery with Aston Martin enthusiasts from all round the world attending.

On Sunday 4,000 visitors came to enjoy the Concours D’Etat where cars are judged and awarded prizes for both their condition and originality. Over 400 vintage and contemporary sports cars participated and while careful logistics and coordination were needed to get them all into place it was also a truly stunning sight as the classic cars arrived and processed along our drive to the House.

Throughout the weekend there were numerous food choices on offer for visitors including formal two-course marquee lunch and a range of hot and cold concessions. Additionally, pre-bookable picnics were available and guests were free to picnic on the lawns overlooking the lake and Deer Park.

“Bonhams chose Englefield due to its proximity to central London and its delightful, quintessentially English setting. The cars looked simply magnificent on the lawn in front of the house, and the beautiful grounds really added a sense of occasion for our sale.

“The team couldn’t have been more helpful both in terms of logistics and presentation and were fully equipped to assist with any request, no matter how large or small. We thank the staff for attending to our every need and the Benyon family for hosting."

Mark Gold, Bonhams Business Manager
