Sil­ver­stone pre­pares for a busy week­end of race-ready and high-end clas­sics

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Sil­ver­stone’s two-day clas­sic sale shouldn’t have trou­ble tap­ping into the de­sires of clas­sic-free pun­ters at­tend­ing the Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic. The cars of­fered are tai­lored the event’s pun­ters, with em­pha­sis on lux­ury and per­for­mance.

The first lot of the sale, a nore­serve Bentley Turbo R, com­bines both el­e­ments in one large, high­speed pack­age. Seek­ers of the more un­usual might find the Healey Sil­ver­stone tempt­ing, while a su­perbly-pre­sented Capri 280 should keep the Fast Ford mar­ket on the boil. From the same era as the Capri, a 5700-miles-from-new Peu­geot 205 GTi 1.9 is likely to get pun­ters wav­ing their paws in the air.

A 1980 Fer­rari 400i of­fers grand tourer ex­pe­ri­ence, while one of the sale’s most-de­serv­ing cases is a re­quir­ing-restora­tion, one-owner 1970 Jaguar E-type FHC.

Sil­ver­stone Auc­tions will be in the right place once more to be mov­ing the clas­sic metal. 01926 691141 sil­ver­stoneauc­
