Bonhams Sale - Quail Lodge Sale


Bonhams returned to Carmel Valley in California on Aug. 16, 2013, for its 16th annual Quail Lodge auction, and the result was the best total in the event’s history. Be it due to a buoyed market overall, a drastically reduced and more competitive buyer’s commission, or momentum earned from setting a record for the most expensive car ever sold at auction a month ago, the tone was markedly different from years past and the tent had a palpable buzz to it. In the end, Bonhams sold 76 of 90 cars for $30.5M, bettering 2012’s figure by nearly $20M.
