Annual Aston Martin sale moves away from Newport Pagnell
After a run of 18 years the Bonhams Aston Martin sale will move from the marque's former HQ to the AMOC's Concours D'Etat
Bonhams auction house has joined up with the Aston Martin Owners Club and announced a new venue for its annual Aston Martin sale, at Englefield House.
The 19th annual Bonhams Aston Martin sale will move to the country estate near Reading and will take place on June 2. The auction forms part of a weekend-long celebration of Aston Martin, including the Club’s prestigious international Concours D’Etat.
After a run of 18 years holding the sale at Aston Martin’s former headquarters in Newport Pagnell, the auction has been confirmed for Englefield House. It now joins Bonhams' other venues for motoring sales, including Goodwood, Le Grand Palais, Monaco and Quail Lodge.
It is unknown whether Englefield House will feature for as long as Newport Pagnell did because AMOC Concours d’Etat is held at various country houses throughout England. The auction could move around accordingly as Bonhams has expressed a desire to continue sharing the event with the club.
Aston Martin Owners Club secretary, Marc Aylott said: 'The Club is proud to continue its long association with the Bonhams Aston Martin Sale, which traditionally takes place on the Club’s renowned Concours D’Etat weekend, in partnership with Champagne Taittinger and Lockton Insurance.
'Staging the Bonhams auction and Club Concours on consecutive days offers the perfect opportunity for our global membership to gather together with our UK members to enjoy two wonderful world-class Aston Martin events.'
Last month a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 sold for £462,940 with Bonhams at its London Olympia auction.
James Knight, Group Motoring chairman, said: ‘The Bonhams Aston Martin Sale is a firm feature on the automotive auction calendar and it is hard to believe that 2018 will mark the 19th auction since the inaugural Sale back in 2000.
'Over the years Bonhams, along with the Aston Martin Owners Club, took up residence at Aston Martin Works and those activities will continue with the Club at its Concours within the grounds of Englefield House.
Aston Martin Works was a warm host and I enjoyed many years conducting the Bonhams Sale on-site within their Service department. We are thrilled to continue the annual sale with the Aston Martin Owners Club.'
