Bonhams charts record online bid at Spa Classic sale

At last weekend’s Spa Classic, British auction house Bonhams sold a Porsche 962 for €1.5m, contributing towards a sale total of almost €5.5m. But even more impressive is that the winning buyer secured the car via an online bid, the highest Bonhams has ever received…

“The internet continues to grow as a trusted method with which clients can bid, a fact proven today by the most valuable lot ever sold at a Bonhams auction to an online bidder,” said Philip Kantor, Bonhams’ European Head of Motoring. The result is the latest in a series of instances that suggest traditional methods of buying and enthusing about cars are losing ground to the internet, proving Classic Driver – the first classic car website, established in 1998 – is the best-placed platform from which to enjoy classics both today, and long into the future.
