Bonhams Motor Cars announces a new auction, Autoworld: The Autumn Sale in partnership with Autoworld Brussels to be held on Sunday 6th September 2020 at the Autoworld Museum in Parc du Cinquantenaire, Brussels. The sale of motor cars ranging from vintage to modern classics, will be led by a 1928 Mercedes-Benz 630 Model K Open Tourer, Chassis No. 35419.

The Autoworld Museum in Parc du Cinquantenaire, Brussels is 20 minutes from Brussels central station with its international links to Amsterdam and Paris, and half an hour from the airport.
