This year, the Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction 2021 will feature vintage, classic, modern, and new cars. Marques and cars featured include Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lancia, plus a classic AC Fastback.
This summer, RM Sotheby’s, Bonham’s, and Gooding & Company hosted online auctions in place of their usually scheduled Monterey events. Topping the list of cars sold at these auctions are a 2001 Ferrari V12 berlinetta that sold for $4.29 million at RM and a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB “long nose,” which sold for $3.08m at Gooding & Co.
At “The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering” in Monterey, Calif. in August, Bugatti unveiled its ultimate model (so far), the Divo, which costs $6m. It is named for Albert Divo, who won the Targa Florio twice in the late 1920s driving a Bugatti Type 35.
It’s not just the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, dozens of displays, concours, and auctions packed into just a few days of Monterey Car Week this August.
Even compared to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, The Quail is Monterey Car Week’s most exclusive event and auction. Every year, Bonhams joins the car show with a similarly prestigious auction
Many of the highlights this year overlap, like the Porsche Werks Reunion and The Quail, so preparing a down-to-the-minute schedule is essential. Check out our itinerary below to avoid missing a moment of Monterey.
Now in its 14th year, the Quail is the most exclusive of the slew of automotive events that comprise Monterey Car Week. Even the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, though prohibitively priced for casual spectators, is open to the public. The Quail, however, thrives on its invitation-only policy, creating a relaxed environment with the right cars and the right products for the right people.
