1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing

Estimate (£): 850,000 – 1,000,000

The 300SL Gullwing is an iconic Mercedes-Benz coupe that was first produced in 1954. Only 1,400 cars were ever made and early cars such as this one, are particularly desirable. This car comes with an impressive history file and with the first UK owner being the late Peter Warr. Furthermore, what is really special about this Gullwing is it’s an early car and features the highly desirable full 'belly pans'

1965 Studebaker Lark Daytona 500

Estimate (£): 65,000 – 80,000 (no reserve)

This car is the only racing Lark Daytona 500 in Europe and has therefore secured invitations to some of the most high-profile historic saloon races in the world, including both Goodwood Members Meeting support races as well as the main Goodwood Revival.

This 1970 Aston Martin DBS V8 was the original factory press car used to launch the new V8 model and it is being offered for sale at the Silverstone Classic, directly from actor and comedian, Steve Coogan.

1985 Renault 5 Turbo 2 Evolution (Type 8221)

Estimate (£): 75,000 – 85,000 

This fabulously eccentric ‘8221’ R5 Turbo 2 represents the pinnacle of this unprecedented French concept, produced in very limited quantities, and is ready to captivate new passengers with its sheer performance, young-timer spirit, and its ability to impart such a powerful ‘thrill of driving’. One of the most affordable of all the 'Group B Maxi' homologation models and as is the way of these things, a very astute investment.

2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Estimate (£): 160,000 – 180,000 

This 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in striking AMG Le Mans Red, is a UK supplied, right-hand drive and in virtually ‘as-new’ condition, having travelled just 690 miles! The gullwing doors, wide radiator grille with the large Mercedes-Benz star and the wing-like fin, are all reminiscent of the legendary 300 SL. This is a real opportunity to acquire a best-of-breed example!
