Bonhams returns to the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, 6902 East Greenway Parkway in Scottsdale, for its 10th annual collectors’ car auction, Thursday, January 21.

Among the many motorcars from Italy, Germany, England and the United States to be offered by auctioneer Rupert Banner are a beautifully restored and numbers-matching 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster; a rare low-mileage 1992 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evo 1 “Martini 6”; and a one-of-99 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante.

“We are delighted to be returning to the Westin Kierland and celebrating a decade of auctions there,” says Eric Minoff, senior specialist for Bonhams.

As part of the company’s COVID-19 safety precautions, the event will be open for preview only by appointment, and the live auction will be outside the traditional Bonhams tent and online.

“All appropriate safety guidelines will be followed, including masks on all employees and guests at all times and social distancing,” he says. Previews will be available by appointment, Tuesday and Wednesday, January 19 and 20, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursday, January 21, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

With only 1,400 miles from new, the single-owner Vanquish Zagato Volante (VIN. SCFPMCRZ3JGK34150, Engine #AM27/ 50644) is powered by a DOHC V-12 with multipoint sequential fuel injection, producing 580 bhp at 7,000 rpm delivered through an 8-speed automatic. Also included on the custom Aston Martin –– its MSRP approached $900,000 –– are 4-wheel independent suspension and 4-wheel vented carbon ceramic disc brakes.
