BLAST FROM THE PAST MAKES A KILLING

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

Bon­hams Auc­toneers sold the only known 1905 Woods Queen Vic­to­ria Brougham for $94 548 (over R1,3 mil­lion) at the Fred­erik­sen auc­tion at Ebeltoft in Den­mark. The two-seater dates back to the early 1900, when there were more elec­tric cars on roads than in­ter­nal com­bus­tors. The cab could be lifted off and the mo­tor is still good for 48 km/h. The in­te­rior is full leather and a glass flower vase shows how times have changed.
