MF Jebsen Group's Auction4Wildlife partners with Aston Martin Hong Kong, Bonhams and The Peninsula Hong Kong to support local wildlife and environment

A philanthropic partnership between MF Jebsen Group, Aston Martin Hong Kong, Bonhams Hong Kong and The Peninsula Hong Kong is taking place to support local wildlife and the environment by auctioning off one model from the special series, Aston Martin Vantage Heritage Edition.

This initiative is under MF Jebsen Group's Auction4Wildlife initiative, which promotes awareness of wildlife conservation, environmental protection and climate change. The auction will be organised and supervised by the international auction house, Bonhams, renowned for presenting world-class auctions of rare and significant collectors' motor cars and take place at The Peninsula Hong Kong.

Proceeds from the auction will fund projects for the protection of endangered species and the restoration of the ecosystem locally by supporting a range of programmes run by Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden. The winning bidder will also be able to choose another beneficiary from a designated list of charity organisations, with nature conservation as the main focus.

The exclusive auction piece, the Gulf Blue Edition Vantage, is the only one in Hong Kong and part of the limited production of only 12 in the world. Worth HK$1.6 million, this unique Aston Martin Vantage will be showcased until June 7 in the main lobby of The Peninsula Hong Kong.

The hotel was chosen not only for its long tradition and commitment to the luxury of travel and passion for automotive excellence but also because the space provides such an iconic and chic setting for such an exclusive car. During the showcase, visitors will be able to see the car first-hand and learn more about Aston Martin and its automotive legacy.

With a starting price of HK$900,000, interested bidders can place their bid through this link. In addition to the Vantage model, a very special Aston Martin DB5, the only one in Hong Kong, is also on display for the first time in the city. Interested participants in this auction will grant exclusive and limited access to preview the DB5.
