World's oldest Vauxhall at Bonhams Auction

Attention vintage car lovers!!

The sale of the world’s oldest surviving Vauxhall motor car was among the highlights of the Bonhams Veteran Motor Car auction in New Bond Street, London, on Friday 2nd November.


The 1903 Vauxhall two-seater beat its top estimate to sell for £94,460. Ordered new for Vauxhall managing director Percy Kidner on 6th November 1903, the car passed to its second owner in April the following year, in whose family ownership it has remained ever since. It remained in use as regular transport until about 1920 and then was laid up until 1948, when it was used again by the family before being loaned to The London Science Museum in 1955.
