LONDON – The Bonhams Motor Car department has appointed of Henning Thomsen as its representative in Denmark.
Henning has more than 50 years’ experience within the collectors’ motor car market, having bought his first vehicle – a Fiat 500 Topolino – at the age of 17.
His passion for the hobby can be seen in the variety of cars he has owned over the years, which include a Ferrari 250GTE and 246GTS, a Delage D6/70, and examples of models from a number of historic British manufacturers including Jaguar, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Morgan, Austin-Healey, MG and Triumph.
His current collection includes two Austin-Healeys, an MGA coupé, two Jaguars, a Morgan Plus 8 and a Lagonda M35R.
In his spare time he is a steward with the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens and a board member with the largest vintage car club in Denmark – the Dansk Veteranbil Klub – and Motorhistorisk Samraad, the Danish Federation that covers such clubs. He has participated in historic motoring events including the Mille Miglia and the Colorado Grand.
“I am absolutely delighted to be joining the team at Bonhams. Classic cars have been my hobby and my passion all my adult life, and I am looking forward to making them my profession too,” said Thomsen.
