Bonhams’ 2008 Quail Lodge auction sold 44 of 77 cars (57%) for total sales of $21,004,800, helped by the 1960 Jaguar E2A Prototype that hammered for $4,957,000 and the 1939 Talbot-Lago T150C SS Teardrop Coupe that sold for $4,847,000. With their strong line-up, Bonhams should eclipse last year’s total, especially if the Auto Union is sold.
