Barons Reaches brand-new Record With Rare Aston Martin
An ultra-rare, unrestored as well as highly original 1969 Aston Martin DB6 Mk 1 Volante Vantage set a brand-new record for Barons when This particular sold for £781,000 at Sandown Park on July 28th 2015. The highest cost ever achieved for a car at a Barons sale, This particular broke the auction house’s previous record of £739,000, set just three months ago for a 1954 Bentley R-Type Continental Fastback ‘barn find’.
“We believe This particular may be a record for an unrestored example of This particular particular Aston Martin, so these are very exciting times for Barons,” said company director Peter Gascoigne. “The past six months since Tony Cavell as well as I took the reins have seen significant growth inside the value as well as quality of cars across the sales, as well as inside the overall sale results. To have two such cars within three months of each various other will be truly remarkable.”
The Sandown Park saleroom was packed, as well as the number of online bidders had swelled by 50% due to This particular sale. Bidding on the Aston – one of just 29 ever made, as well as believed to be the final such Volante Vantage built – actually started off slowly, building gradually coming from an initial £350,000. Then telephone bids began flooding in as well as the auto accelerated rapidly up to the final figure paid by the UK buyer.
Another British classic was second inside the popularity charts at the sale. The stunning 1968 Series 1.5 Jaguar E-type 2+2 had been the subject of a comprehensive nut-as well as-bolt bare metal restoration, as well as sold for £46,750. This particular was followed by a very impressive, as well as considerably younger, machine; the 2014 Dax Cobra, which has just 500 miles on the clock, roared past its £20,000 estimate to sell for £32,175.
Barons will be currently gearing up for its British Heritage, Classic & Collectors’ Sale, at Sandown Park on September 15th 2015.
