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.

Happy Bidding!
