The Key Museum in Turkey features many rare vehicles, some of which will be sold at Bonhams latest auctions.

Bonhams has been responsible for auctioning some of the finest automobiles in existence, and the up-coming Goodwood Members’ Meeting auction on 7 April 2019 is no different. No-less than 24 pristine vehicles have been added to the roster from The Key Museum in Turkey to bolster and already impressive lineup.

The automotive museum is in the process of restructuring its' collection and no longer has need for these exhibits. While that’s a shame in one regard, their sale now affords these cars the opportunity to be enjoyed once again by private individuals.
