Bonhams – This year’s Bonhams Golden Age of Motoring Sale, which showcases historic names of pioneering motoring, will present the oldest Daimler on the road in the auction house’s New Bond Street salesroom on November 4th, two days before the annual Veteran Car Run.

The 1897 Daimler Twin-Cylinder 4HP Tonneau was the second car manufactured at Daimler’s Coventry factory. Although it was demonstrated to the then Prince of Wales, later Edward VIII, the Daimler’s first owner was Colonel Arthur Mulliner, of the eponymous coachbuilding family. His cousin Henry (H.J.) was of course famous for creating bespoke bodies for Rolls-Royce and Bentley. Together, the pair took part in the inaugural run of The Automobile Club of Great Britain in London’s Pall Mall.
