Rare Vauxhall steals show at auction

Published 05 December 2016

A 1914 Vauxhall 25HP ‘Prince Henry’ Sports Torpedo sold for £516,700 at the weekend. The car went under the hammer at Bonhams New Bond Street Sale on 4 December.

Another showstopper was the 1926 Rolls-Royce Phantom I - known as ‘The Phantom of Love.’ Built without any budget limitations, at the time of construction, this was the most expensive Rolls-Royce ever created. The car sold for £561,500.

British cars were the stars of the sale, with eight of the top ten lots being home-grown marques, including a delightful 1962 Jaguar E-type Series 1 3.8-Litre Roadster, which went for £219,900.

Highest price in the sale went to the 1989 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante ‘Prince of Wales’ at £651,100 (pictured below).
