Bonhams to present drive-through auction in Paris
This Aston Martin DB4GT is expected to fetch €1,100,000-1,400,000 at Bonhams' February sale in Paris.

La Halle Freyssinet, a venue more often associated with top names in fashion, will host Bonhams’ next motor car and motorcycle sale in Paris on 1 February 2012. An impressive array of offerings will drive through the venue, including a 1961 Aston Martin DB4GT Coupé, which has attracted a pre-sale estimate of €1,100,000-1,400,000.

This venue is a change from 2011’s event when the sale was held at the Grand Palais.

James Knight, Bonhams Group Head of Motoring, says: “Although we enjoyed our sale at the Grand Palais — and I must acknowledge how much the management tried their best to accommodate us for 2012 — it is very much a national monument that came with understandable restrictions. With La Halle Freyssinet we have identified another impressive and well-located venue but this time allowing us to present a drive-through auction — a concept we brought to Europe in 2009 to much acclaim. The drive through allows our clientele to see and hear the cars prior to coming under the hammer, providing an exciting dynamic to the sale.”
