The Bonhams Greenwich 2016 auction was held Sunday, June 5th at the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance in Connecticut, resulting in $5,390,275 in total sales and an 80 percent sell-through rate. Held at the waterfront Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich, Bonhams’ 9th annual sale featured more than 100 automobiles and a wide-ranging selection of automobilia.
“Our sale was strong and consistent this year,” said Eric Minoff, Bonhams Motoring Dept. Specialist. “Good, desirable classics fresh to market sold really well and interest from international bidders continues to grow. It was a pleasure to support the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance and the Wennerstrom family, who continue this popular event founded by Bruce and Genia Wennerstrom.”
