Have your say

AUCTION house Bonhams has announced new additions to its line-up at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this summer.

The auction takes place on Friday, June 29 and will now feature a ‘Corgi’ Rolls-Royce from 1912 and Ettore Bugatti’s 1938 Bugatti Type 57C.

The Rolls-Royce is one of the Silver Ghost line and was designed to reflect the opulent Pullman railway carriages of the time.

In its 100th year, the Corgi is expected to attract bids of more than £2m, while the Bugatti is likely to go under the hammer for more than £1m.

James Knight, group head of Bonhams motoring department, said: ‘This sale is gathering tremendous momentum and promises to be one of the most memorable sales in decades.’
