Bicester Heritage is delighted to announce Bonhams MPH as the latest specialist to open at our unique destination and focal point for the historic car industry based at our beautifully restored former WW2 RAF Bomber Station.
Bonhams, the pre-eminent international auction house is renowned for the sale of significant motor cars at prestigious venues around the world. Bicester Heritage is pleased to have reached an agreement as the latest location of choice from which to launch their new auction venture, Bonhams MPH. The offices will be located in the recently refurbished former RAF Guard House, a beautiful neo-Georgian building which occupies a commanding position at the main gates to Bicester Heritage.
A separate business entity within Bonhams, MPH will focus on the consignment and sale of modern and affordable classics. Four auctions a year will be held at the Bicester Heritage campus in their vast events space, Hangar 113, the first taking place on Thursday 26th September. A new online consignment process carried out via the dedicated MPH portal is designed to make the transaction as quick and simple as possible for both buyers and sellers.
Bonhams MPH will have a presence at the inaugural Super Scramble event to be held at Bicester Heritage on Sunday the 23rd June, where their doors will be open to existing and new clients alike.
Dan Geoghegan, Chief Executive of Bicester Heritage, said: “We have long admired Bonhams’ presence and performance in the classic car auction market and are absolutely delighted to welcome their new venture, Bonhams MPH, to Bicester Heritage. The establishment of Bonhams MPH within 90 minutes of 50% of the UK population will offer the best skills and professionalism in the auction world to the largest possible audience.”
James Knight, Bonhams Executive Director and Motoring Group Chairman, added: “We identified Bicester Heritage as the stand-out location for our new operation and I am so pleased that Dan Geoghegan and the management team expressed the same appetite for Bonhams to take up residence. We cannot wait to develop Bonhams MPH. The potential is enormous.”
