Tim Schofield, Bonhams UK Head of Motor Cars, said: “We’ve got a wonderful selection of exciting veteran cars at this year’s auction, including two vehicles – an 1899 Panhard-Levassor Type M2E 4hp Two-Seater, estimated at £300,000-350,000, and an 1899 Star Benz 3½hp Vis-à-Vis, estimated at £60,000-70,000 – that are over 115-years old. It’s an incredible and unusual sale, transporting visitors back to the golden age of motoring.” One of the most advanced cars of its day, the Clement has a long known British history, now returning to the UK from American ownership. Its very earliest days were recorded in the programme for the London to Brighton Run in 1934.
