Head to head with Bon­hams

But not just As­ton Martins lined up on the Grand Prix cir­cuit’s auc­tion grid

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Held the same day as Bon­hams’ As­ton Martin sale barely 20 miles away, Sil­ver­stone had some­thing for the buyer who didn’t want one of New­port Pag­nell’s finest, although sev­eral were of­fered. Sport­ing and per­for­mance cars were to the fore, with Fer­raris, Jaguars and Porsches well rep­re­sented. The 4500-miles­from-new Ford Capri 2.0 Laser was a typ­i­cally good find, as was a 1949 Land Rover in de­light­fully used or­der, while Ray Davies’ Bent­ley S2 found a buyer at just un­der £30k. Stay­ing on a well-used theme, for a great com­bi­na­tion of patina and us­abil­ity the 1958 Porsche 356A was hard to beat. Sil­ver­stone’s next sale is on 29-30 July. ❚ 01926 69114 ❚ sil­ver­stoneauc­tions.com
