    Matt Bell on 20th June 2019

    The latest of Mathewsons’ monthly classic car auctions took place at its Pickering base on June 1, and once again boasted a catalogue full of desirable classics.

    LOW-MILEAGE NSX-RS TO BE SOLD

    Matt Bell on 4th June 2019

    It’s very seldom you see the Type R variant of the Honda NSX go up for sale these days, let alone two. That makes the news of a pair heading to auction in Japan all the more remarkable, especially given that they’re probably the finest examples of the top-spec model anywhere in the world.

    Matt Bell on 8th May 2019

    The latest in H&H's online-only sales, the firm’s April 27 auction was a lesson in how to do it properly. Rather than an anonymous eBay-style platform, there’s a proper live feed with an auctioneer – in suit and tie, no less – fielding both online and phone bids, with all the drama of a live sale.
