Aston Martin Ulster

The top lot of the sale is the 1935 Aston Martin Ulster two-seat sports which was a Works entry in Le Mans 24 Hours of 1935 where it finished 5th in its class.

Based on the Mk II chassis, the Ulster was the apotheosis of the pre-war sporting Aston Martin and was originally made available to amateur racers for £750.

One of only 31 Ulsters built, ‘CML 719’ list of race outings reads like a racetrack hall of fame: Spa Francorchamps, Brooklands, Donington, Silverstone, Goodwood, Monterey and the Mille Miglia have all witnessed the robust elegance of what is widely considered to be the marque’s finest pre-war car.

Top estimate: £1.5m
