Perfect the Christmas garage with Bonhams on Bond Street

The catalogue for Bonhams’ traditional season-ending sale at its Bond Street headquarters in London might be small in number, but the quality in 2019 is certainly higher than in recent years. These are the lots we’d like to tuck up in our garages this Christmas…

We’ve already showed you the cars that Jay Kay of Jamiroquai fame is charging Bonhams with selling at its season-closing Bond Street sale on 7 December, but now it’s time to take a look at the rest of the 34-lot catalogue. From traditional blue-chip classics such as the ‘missing’ Aston Martin DB4GT ‘Lightweight’ that’s been in its current ownership since 1965 (est. £2–3m) to a plethora of modern supercar including the first Bugatti Veyron delivered to the United Kingdom (£850,000–1.25m), there is certainly something in the sale for someone to indulge in this Christmas. 

We’d personally plump for the 1994 Aston Martin Virage Volante that was originally delivered to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and is thus in a unique specification. Contrary to how its elegant narrow body would have you believe, the drop-top Virage is actually hiding the full-fat 6.3-litre converted engine under the bonnet. It’s estimated to fetch £225,000–275,000 when it crosses the block on Saturday.
