This auction, presented by Silverstone Auctions, a world-class
specialist auction house for the sale of collector cars and automotive
memorabilia, features an assortment of important left-hand drive
vehicles sure to catch the attention of collector car enthusiasts from
across the globe. The current value of the British Sterling against the
U.S. Dollar makes this event a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to
purchase a vehicle at an incredible price. Whether an experienced
collector, or just getting started, this auction is primed with
beautiful automobiles in left-hand drive, including:
Ferrari 430 Scuderia: Originally supplied to Germany in 2009, this
vehicle today has just 28,000 km (17,600 mi). While the car is in
outstanding condition, the vehicle will undergo service just prior to
the auction and a fresh MoT by renowned Ferrari Specialists, Terry
Buick Roadmaster Convertible: This vehicle is in “barn find”
condition. A similar ’49 Roadmaster Convertible was featured in the
film Rain Man, making this a seriously
cool restoration project.
Ferrari 456M GTA: This left-hand drive Ferrari was the fastest
production four-seater in the world at the time of its debut. This
well-presented example shows just 23,000 mi from new and has recently
had major service, including brakes and belts.
Ferrari 348TB: The vehicle offered is just one of 60
pre-production cars that were released to Ferrari dealers. With just
1,553 miles, this is an exceptional example with all the power and
grace to fit with any collection.
Ford GT: Accelerating from 0-60 in about 3.5 seconds, Ford GT40s
won four consecutive overall victories at Le Mans. With only 10,080
miles and Roush upgrades, this fully original example packs all the
power expected of a Ford GT, making it a highly sought after
Alfa Romeo 1900 Speciale by ATL: This simple, yet sporty vehicle
has Alfa Romeo’s classic four-cylinder 1900 twin-camshaft engine
derived from the 6C – a superb compact engine with plenty of kick.
This is a truly unmissable opportunity to own an affordable work of
Porsche 911 (964) RS Clubsport: Experts often rate the 964 RS as
the greatest 911 chassis ever, and this vehicle has been intelligently
developed to feel equally at home on the road and circuit. This
example has gradually evolved into one of the ultimate 911s money can
Porsche 924 Carrera GTR: This amazing one owner, 109 kilometers
from new, survivor is only one of only two cars delivered to Japan
from new (the other example having been used for racing). The car was
brought into the country in 1981 by Porsche importer ‘Garage Italya’,
and is surely the best available example of Porsche’s ultimate and
rare incarnation of the 924.
Ford Fusion NASCAR: Owned and driven by the legendary Robby
Gordon, this car is a very exciting and rare vehicle, and a first for
Silverstone Auctions. Fitted with a small block engine that has been
professionally built by Menards Racing Development, the vehicle
retained expensive and crucial parts that make it an exciting
proposition for any race fan.
