The first cars have been revealed for Silverstone Auctions final sale of the year at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, setting extremely high standards for the two-day auction.
Of particular interest among the early consignments is a 1960 Maserati 3500 GT estimated at £165,000 to £185,000. Finished in Grigio and Rosso with a Red leather interior piped in Grey, the very rare right-hand drive car is one of only 40 examples produced. Powered by a 3.5 litre inline six-cylinder engine with a four-speed manual transmission, the car is supplied with an impressive history folder and presents a very special opportunity to own one of Maserati’s most charismatic grand tourers.
A specially restored 1977 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo 3.0, a low mileage 1979 Aston Martin V8 Oscar India and a timeless 2008 Bentley Brooklands Coupe, are among the early consignments for the sale which will take place on 10th and 11th November at the NEC, Birmingham.
“The quality of the classics already consigned sets the benchmark for our final sale of the year,” says Harry Whale, classic car specialist for Silverstone Auctions. “The Classic Motor Show is the UK’s biggest classic car event and we will select only the very best of breed submissions for this long anticipated auction. We encourage sellers to get in touch with their own quality classics to try and match the fantastic cars already on offer.”
