The Bonhams' Auction of Aston Martin motor cars and automobilia has been attracting Aston Martin fans for seven years, and the ninth installment is bound to attract more owners and enthusiasts than ever before.
Over the years Bonhams has sold over GBP 14 million worth of Aston Martins and related Aston Martin memorabilia, often at record prices. This year will be no different when one of David Brown's most sought after Aston's will go under the hammer, the 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT Coupe, along with 40 other Astons.
”We are delighted that the Bonhams’ auction at Aston Martin has become such a prominent fixture on the international calendar of classic car sales,” said Kingsley Riding-Felce, Aston Martin’s Director of Works Service and Customer Care.
Most interesting Aston Martin automobilia will be the two specially numbered imperial gauge bricks from the historic Aston Martin factory at Newport Pagnell. The proceedings from these two lots (256 and 257) will benefit The Aston Martin Heritage Trust. In total 1,500 of these bricks will be made available whose proceeds will benefit the Willen Hospice and Cancer Research.
