Bonhams Veteran Car Zone

Over one hundred stunning, historic cars were on display within the Bonhams Veteran Car Zone, featuring the Concours d’Elegance, at the Show. These vehicles were all lovingly restored by their owners, many of whom joined us in period dress!

The following day, Sunday 3rd November, The Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run took place. The Run is the world’s longest running motoring event. Over 400 pre-1905 cars set off on their annual pilgrimage from Hyde Park to Madeira Drive in Brighton.
