Bonhams Quail Motorcar Auction

14th August 2020

1959 Porsche 718 RSK Spyder

The line-up for the Quail Auction is being curated to include some of the finest motorcars ever offered at auction. To date highlights include the most important pre- and post-war Alfa Romeo models produced, the impressive Porsche 718 RSK Spyder (above) with its four decade-long ownership, exceptional Mercedes-Benz SL models, a collection of modern Supercars offered without reserve and much more.

As part of this year’s Quail Motorcar Auction, Bonhams is offering an array of exciting lots with proceeds going directly to Rancho Cielo Youth Campus and Americares charitable organizations. Lots 1 through 6 will not be subject to a buyer’s premium.

For many years, The Peninsula Signature Events’ The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering has worked with Rancho Cielo as one of their charity partners. Because the traditional Monterey Car Week cannot take place due to COVID-19 restrictions, Bonhams and Quail Lodge/The Peninsula Signature Events are happy to be supporting this Salinas, California organization dedicated to the education of at-risk youth. Rancho Cielo’s mission is to transform the lives of at-risk youth and empower them to become accountable, productive and responsible citizens. They believe that the solution for our youth lies in education and work readiness. For more information, please visit: www.ranchocieloyc.org.

Bonhams has also chosen for proceeds to go to Americares, who they have worked with at its Greenwich Concours d’Elegance Auction for the last several years. They are happy to have another opportunity to raise funds for Americares who is using every resource to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Americares is focused on frontline health workers, keeping them safe so they can continue to do life-saving work on behalf of patients with COVID-19 and those in need of care for other essential health services and life-threatening conditions in vulnerable communities. For more information, please visit: americares.org.

Bonhams is delighted to announce a collaboration with the celebrated Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
