Bonhams Geneva 2019 Classic Car Auction
The motorcar department of Bonhams will be returning to Geneva, Switzerland, for the first time in years on Sunday 29 September 2019 for a very special sale, featuring a private collection of 25 supercars, hypercars and luxury motor cars. The sale will take place in a 12th century abbey, which is next to the Bonmont Golf and Country Club Clubhouse, a former chateau overlooking Lake Geneva.
The cars represent an international roll-call of prestige and performance marques: Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Ferrari, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Maserati, Mercedes-Maybach and Porsche, with models ranging from hypercars to luxury convertibles and limousines.
The collection is estimated to realise in excess of €12,000,000, (£10,000,000, $13,000,000). The collection is being offered for sale by the State of Geneva, to be sold without reserve, and the sale will be conducted by Mr.Mauro Contessotto, State Auctioneer for the Geneva State. Provenance is still a bit unclear at this stage and unlikely to boost to prices.

Top Cars at Bonhams Geneva 2019 Sale
Some of the top cars announced for the Bonhams Geneva sale include the following – details are still sketchy but with all cars offered without reserve bargains may be possible, especially on models such as the P1 and Veyron that have traded lower at recent auctions:
One of nine roadster versions of the ultimate Lamborghini, which were produced in the colours of the Italian flag to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary: red, white and green. This two-tone white and cream example has driven a mere 325km.
Estimate €4,500,000 – 5,000,000.
Ferrari – La Ferrari
The Formula 1 and GT-inspired model is described by the Modena manufacturer as the ‘most ambitious’ Ferrari and the first production car to be equipped with F1-derived hybrid technology. This particular car has covered 1,000km.
Estimate €2,300,000 – 2,500,000.
Arguably the rarest car in the collection, only six were produced by the Swedish manufacturer who described it as the world’s first mega car, producing more than one megawatt of power, at its Geneva motor show launch in 2014, This example has driven only 597km.
Estimate €1,600,000 – 2,000,000.
One of only 375 hybrid super sports made by the British manufacturing arm of the successful Formula 1 firm. Just 1000 km covered.
Estimate €1,300,000 – 1,600,000 – this is one to watch: bidding for a P1 stopped at a million euro at the RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba 2019 sale and several failed to clear reserve margins at US sales in the past 18 months.
Aston Martin One 77
Number 35 of 77. Aston Martin’s flagship carbon fibre and aluminium hypercar was produced in a limited run between 2009 and 2012, featuring a 7.3-litre V12 engine, giving a top speed of 220mph.
Estimate €1,200,000 – 1,600,000.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4
The French produced Veyron, named after racing driver Pierre, set the benchmark for supercars when launched in 2005, combining racing car performance (1000hp, maximum speed of more than 250mph and acceleration from 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds) with a luxury package. This Atlantic Blue example is offered in very good condition, having driven just over 3000 miles.
Estimate €600,000 – 800,000.
The Bonhams sale will be preceded by two viewing days (Friday 27 – Saturday 28 September), when the collection will be presented at the Bonmont Golf & Country Club, along with highlights from the auction house’s international sales of jewellery, watches and Chinese art as well as modern and contemporary art.
