Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - 0207 468 5801, bonhams.com

Al­ways well re­ceived, this year’s Bonhams’ Beaulieu Au­to­jum­ble sale con­tin­ued a tra­di­tion of top-class of­fer­ings of all ages and in all con­di­tions, many at no re­serve.

A rum­mage through the cat­a­logue showed some in­ter­est­ing lots, in­clud­ing a one fam­ily-owned 1972 Lo­tus Elan S4, a Ford Capri 2.8i auto once owned by Ford and driven by Henry Ford II and a 1925 Rolls-- Royce 20hp sedanca that was sold new to ar­chi­tect Sir Ed­win Lu­tyens. Other treats in­cluded a 1953 James Young-bod­ied Bent­ley R-type that had spent its en­tire life in Jersey, an In­victa Black Prince es­tate and a 1920 Vaux­hall 30/98 E-type.

A well-at­tended sale that recorded good re­sults, bod­ing well for when Bonhams de­camped to the Good­wood Re­vival, last week­end.
