Bonhams has announced a new partnership with Ferrari Owners' Club of Great Britain.

The deal will see Bonhams become the official auction partner of the club, working in conjunction to promote events and conduct single-marque sales over the next three years.

The auction house already enjoys successful partnerships with historic motoring clubs, marques and events including Mercedes-Benz, Goodwood and the Royal Automobile Club, acting as sponsors to the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run.
