The NEC Classic Motor Show Sale
We’re delighted to return to the NEC for our fifth sale
at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show. This
weekend’s two-day sale promises to see 2016 off
with a bang. With more than 70,000 visitors set to
attend, this show really is one of the highlights of our
calendar. It’s always a fantastic event and is getting
bigger and better every year.
I and the team at Silverstone Auctions look forward
to an equally exciting and successful 2017, and with
details of next year’s sales now available, please
speak to us if you’re looking to sell.
So what of the current classic car market? The last
12 months have seen some potential challenges
for the wider market, however the results from
our most recent sales prove that the best cars will
always appeal. Original UK, right-hand drive cars
with good provenance continue to be in demand.
Post-referendum we have seen that it is cheaper
for European and US buyers to purchase cars from
the UK so that’s a positive. However, the classic car
market has always been, and is increasingly, an
enthusiast-led market, and there’s no reason for the
levels of enthusiasm to change. People have relatively
few other good investment options at this time and if
you are an enthusiast who has some cash in the bank,
why not indulge in your dream classic?
With that and this weekend’s sale, there’s an eclectic
offering of over 120 classic and modern sports cars
and several historic motorcycles spanning some 89
years available for you to take home. At Silverstone
Auctions we pride ourselves on bringing together ‘best
of breed’ cars to auction and we hope you agree that
the vehicles on offer do this justice.
Our team is on hand to provide even more insight into
the cars on offer, with dedicated staff able to expertly
guide you through the history files. If you have any
queries or require any assistance please don’t hesitate
to speak to a member of the team who will be more
than happy to assist you.
Once again, I’d like to thank you for joining us, and we
look forward to seeing you in the New Year with our
first sale taking place at Race Retro in February.
1960 Mercedes-Benz 190SL RHD
Estimate: £100,000 - £120,000
