Bonhams have hosted auctions in conjunction with the Goodwood Festival of Speed since the late 1990s and when the Revival began they were there from year 1. The Members Meeting was traditionally a closed event for Members but recently it became the third event, actually the first since its in mid March but hey. Unlike the other two sales, Bonhams aimed this one at the audience so there are plenty of Goodwood worthy race cars, some fascinating project cars and a small selection of true classics. Always capable of $7 – 9 million in gross sales on the back of 92 sales, 2018 saw Bonhams Goodwood Members Meeting offer 106 automobiles for a very poor $5.058 million although they rebounded with a very successful $8 million sale in 2019. 2020s sale is lead by a 2017 Ford GT and a lovely 1955 Lister-Maserati alongside many fine cars of all eras.

17/3/2019 update – Goodwood have cancelled the Members Meeting although there has been no word from Bonhams about the auction.

Ford developed the original GT, the GT40, back in 1963 after Enzo Ferrari rebuffed their offer to buy his eponymous firm. Fords racer would go on to four Le Mans wins and become iconic as one of the great Sportscar racers. Ford relaunched the GT with the rather flabby 2004 variant of which 4,000 were built and these were highly collectible although the large number built limits values. The most recent relaunch is the 2017 Ford GT which is a special limited edition built by Multimatic with a high performance 660bhp 3.5 litre V6 and carbon fibre chassis. Offered at a $450k MSRP with just 250 available per year and this limited production ensuring that demand remained higher than supply caused prices to exceed $1 million. That drove supply which has seen prices crash and now an amount around the $800 – 900k mark is all the money, Bonhams example being a rare UK car with just 600 miles from new is atypical. As such the £700 – 900k ($861k – 1.107 mil.) estimate is slightly high but might still sell.

Brian Lister formed his eponymous company after partnering with Archie Scott Brown and he began building ever more effective sports racers. Lister began to develop a new race car for 1956 and after Salvadori’s 1955 success with a 2 litre Maserati the new car was built for the A6G engine. Scott Brown was to be successful in 1956, taking three wins although poor Scott Brown would be killed at Spa in 1958 and this particular car would be stored until the mid 1970s when it passed to a British collector. Two further American owners had the car until 2017 when it passed to British ownership and is noted to have both a new 2 litre Maserati engine and its original accompanying the car. A later 1950s Lister is a $1 – 1.5 million proposition with either the Chev or Jaguar engine but this car is a 2 litre racer and its £500 – 800k ($615 – 984k) estimate is either market correct or maybe even a touch expensive.

Hispano-Suiza was founded when a Spanish car company approached Spanish designer Mark Birkgit who designed a series of ever more advanced road and racing cars for the company that was soon carrying the moniker it would be famous for. Arguably the greatest car Brikgit would build was the H6 with its four wheeled brakes and advanced engineering. The H6B developed the platform and #11608 was built for display at the 1926 Olympia Motor Show with Hooper coupe coachwork before winning multiple concours through 1930. This car was later converted into a extra long wheelbase with rather bizarre stagecoach style bodywork of an individual style and it later passed through the British trade. The most recent owner purchased #11608 and had it restored to its original form with contemporary Park Ward coachwork taken from a Bentley. Now that we have the history out of the way it remains that this is an extraordinarily attractive Hispano-Suiza and is offered in ideal condition with well known provenance. As such its value is split between what it is and isn’t and it certainly isn’t real so the £350 – 400k ($430 – 492k) estimate is strong indeed, perhaps some value below the low estimate, at a guess $350k USD but certainly no more.

Riley were one of the more important British independent auto manufacturers and full scale production began in 1913 with some relatively sporty cars on offer. JG Thomas Parry began developing Brooklands racers from Riley chassis in the mid 1920s and the high revving Riley 9 engine was sought after for its excellent power to size ratio. The underslung MPH was to be the ultimate expression of the 9 and the 15 cars made were very successful at Brooklands and other UK venues but they were based on the TT Sprite seen in early 1934. The car on offer at Bonhams is one of the rare TT Sprites and believed to have been built in 1934 and the car raced by Dixon/ Paul at the 1934 Le Mans and Brackenbury at the 1935 TT. Listed as broken up it is understood it was instead rebuilt to MPH form and was later sold to France where it was raced at the 1937 Le Mans and French GP. Further French history ended in 1972 but not before its original coachwork was separated along with many of its parts. Complete with many parts from its 1930s heyday, Bonhams claim this is the most original TT Sprite although this remains unproven, regardless the estimate of £280 – 360k ($344- 443k) doesn’t seem unreasonable and in fact the car seems reasonably priced compared to contemporary race cars.
