Bonhams announces 18th annual Aston Martin Sale

The 18th annual Aston Martin Sale will be held by International auction house Bonhams on Saturday 13 May 2017. The sale will take place at the spiritual home of Aston Martin’s heritage, Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, where many of this year’s lots were originally built.

The 2017 sale is a celebration of old and new Aston Martins, with cars ranging from 1953 through to 2016.

The most modern car in the sale is a special edition 2016 Vantage GT12 Coupe. Only 100 performance-focused road-going Vantage GT12s were made and this is the only example in the striking Viridian Green paint, a special colour created by Aston Martin’s bespoke service, Q by Aston Martin. The 600 hp car sold out shortly after being revealed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and this Vantage GT12 has an estimate of £350,000 - £450,000.    

A highlight of the sale will be one of the rarest post-war Aston Martins: a 1968 DB6 Mark I Volante. Extensively refurbished by Aston Martin Works in 2012, the car has only covered 1,000 miles since then, and is estimated between £700,000 - £900,000. The convertible premiered at the 1965 London Motor Show, marking the first time the Volante name was applied to a soft top Aston Martin. Only 140 Mark I DB6 Volantes were made, making this a highly sought-after collectors model.

A beautiful DB5, a number of elegant DB6s from the 1960s, a very rare V8 Sportsman estate car (one of only three created) from the nineties and many more exciting lots await bidders, including a wide range of Aston Martin related memorabilia.
