Veteran trio of cars up for auction


Monday October 24th 2011

Car collectors might be interested to discover that a trio of cars crafted during the infancy of automobile production will be auctioned next month.

The oldest, a 1898 six-seat Wagonette made by French company Fisson, is expected to fetch up to £170,000 when it goes under the hammer at the Bonhams auction in London on November 4.

The other two, an 1899 Panhard-Levassor Wagonette and a 1902 Deckert two-seater, are expected to be sold for as much as £150,000.

The classic cars are also expected to take part in the London to Brighton veteran car run, proving that they are as durable as they are elegant to look at.

Other vehicles going under the hammer at Bonhams in New Bond Street at next month's auction include a £200,000-valued 1904 Talbot, a 1902 Renault and a UK-built 1901 Sunbeam-Mabley cycle car.
