Silverstone Auctions will be holding their two day May sale at Heythrop Park on the 10th and 11th May, with fine cars and memorabilia being offered for sale.
Saturday’s Classic Car sale will offer 50 cars including a rare 1972 Ferrari Daytona Spyder.
The 1972 Ferrari Daytona Spyder Conversion is an absolutely breathtaking car. It was originally supplied by Maranello Concessionaires in March 1972 and has travelled just 8,700 miles. The car was professionally converted in 1978 to Spyder form by Richard Straman Coachworks in California. Presented in Blue Dino Metallizzato paint colour.
An original, right-hand drive, UK-delivered car, this rare Ferrari has recently been lavished with expertise and considerable expenditure totalling close to £70,000. Meticulously maintained, recently replaced clutched, balanced power steering.
When it comes to sheet metal, this is about as beautiful as you could ever hope to find, in its original Blue Dino Metallizzato over a classic Tan interior with Nero inserts this Daytona Spyder is estimated at £500,000 to £575,000.
Arwel Richards, Auction Manager for the Heythrop sale commented “Set within the historic grounds of the Grade II listed Heythrop Park, the auction will showcase gleaming examples of automotive excellence akin to a Concours d’Elegance with best of breed examples of all marques over our two day sale in the heart of the Cotswolds.”
“We have responded to this new enthusiast led market by tailoring our catalogue to meet the highest of expectations by offering cars of the best quality at estimates that reflect their rarity and condition.”
“Many of the cars we have on offer have caught the eye of many a concours judge, with one car gaining a third place at Pebble Beach in 2015, arguably the most exacting of all concours competitions.”
“Our team of specialists are negotiating some superb motorcars which will add to the catalogue in the coming weeks. There are still some spaces left, however, for vendors to include their cars among the exclusive line up and take part in one of the headline sales of the year.”
Silverstone Auctions are still accepting cars for the auction and can be contacted on 01926 691141 or email email@example.com and would be happy to talk with you and help you through the process of consigning your car.
