Coys was founded for classic car enthusiasts who are looking for something truely unique.

London-based classic car auctioneers Coys of Kensington, founded in 1919, report their best year to date, with notable results in the five auctions they have held during the first three months of the year. Since January, they have held successful auctions at the NEC in Birmingham, Maastricht, and three in London, with sales taking place at the Olympia Exhibition Centre and the Excel Centre.

Coys also hosted the highly-publicised Zoom charity auction in February, where photographs taken by the drivers and team principals of Formula 1 teams were auctioned at a star-studded gala event in central London to raise money for the Starlight children’s charity.
