Silverstone Auctions’ first sale of 2021 is The Race Retro Live Online Auction, taking place on Friday 5th – Saturday 6th March. The organisers have confirmed three rare Aston Martins for auction.
This hybrid format blends the traditional, event-style auctions with all of the perks associated with online sales. You can participate entirely from the safety of your own home.
Silverstone Auctions carried out three of their four sales in 2020 in this way and all achieved great results. They are expecting the three breathtaking Aston Martins to also sell in this way.
The catalogue of cars is already shaping up with some magnificent consignments, including three exquisite Aston Martins confirmed for auction.
1963 Aston Martin DB4, Series 5
Notably, the first is an exceedingly rare left-hand drive 1963 Aston Martin DB4 Series 5. This is one of just 50 DB4 Series 5 saloons built prior to the arrival of the DB5.
This car retains its original engine and gearbox numbers. It still wears its original specified colours (Aegean Blue over White Gold).
Gary Dunne, Silverstone Auctions Sales Controller, commented, “We are thrilled with the significantly high standard of cars in our growing lot list for this sale and I can confirm there are many more coming. Even though the sale itself is online, our team are still able to see, touch and hear all of the cars as they arrive at our storage facility, creating a virtual showroom of choice for our buyers.”
1970 Aston Martin DB6 Mk2 Vantage
The spectacular line-up of cars going under the hammer next month includes a very rare and desirable 1970 Aston Martin DB6 Mk2 Vantage.
Finished in British Racing Green, it is one of just 71 that had the Vantage engine from new. Half of those were right-hand drive saloons with a factory fitted manual gearbox – of which this is one.
This cherished car enjoyed several Concours successes with Aston Martin Owners Club.
1969 DB6 Mk2
Amazingly, a third, elegant Aston Martin will form part of the sale. This lovely 1969 DB6 Mk2 has benefitted from lots of recent attention at Aston Martin Works.
The history file details all of the work carried out, including a full interior retrim. It is remarkable is that this is the same facility in which the car was originally built. This too is a rare right-hand drive model with a manual gearbox.
