About us

Bonhams MPH is an arm of Bonhams Motor Cars with 'MPH' standing for our specialities; Modern, Popular and Historic vehicles. Established in 2019, we have brought the blue riband Bonhams’ service to the ever-growing market of classics priced between £1,000-£100,000 


Our aim is simple: to provide both sellers and buyers of more affordable vintage, classic, modern and generally popular cars an efficient, easy and enjoyable way to buy and sell. 

We offer the best of both worlds: popular traditional live drive-through auctions, complemented by the unique Bonhams ‘live and online’ format, which have both proved successful, with an average sell-through rate of 71% and more than 500 collectors’ motor cars and vehicles sold since our first auction in September 2019.


As part of the Bonhams global motoring department, we combine our personal, in-house expertise with industry leading marketing for every lot. We ensure unrivalled customer experience, in order to achieve the very best sale price possible, while only charging simple, realistic and transparent charges.


Our charges are competitive, just 5% + VAT sellers commission and 12.5% + VAT buyer’s premium - you simply won’t get a better service anywhere for the money.  

Trust us – you’re in safe hands.
