Countdown to the Silverstone Classic with


Silverstone Classic



Event partner, Silverstone Auctions, hosted three sales over the weekend of the Classic in 2017. To view the results - which amounted to £5.5m over the weekend - please visit their website here for the competition car sale and here for the main auction. 

Some highlights included a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona, once owned by Sir Elton John, was hammered away for £551,250 and drew enthusiastic applause from the crowd, with a 1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 drawing gasps of awe as it raced past the £100,000 mark during a fierce bidding war, eventually selling for £114,750 to an online bidder from Australia.
Despite an estimate of £70,000 - £85,000 before the sale, bidding for a rare 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL actually started at £95,000 and after a rapid-fire battle between room, phone and online bidders it eventually sold in the room for a final price of £137,250. Fast Fords were also popular across both days of the road car sale and an iconic 1987 Ford Capri 280 Brooklands powered past its lower estimate by more than £20,000 on day one to sell for £55,125.
