Rare Aston could make £750,000 at auction

Published 02 July 2015

A rare and original Aston Martin will headline Barons sale later this month. The 1969 Aston Martin DB6 Mk1 Volante Vantage will go under the hammer at Sandown Park on 28 July.

One of just 29 ever made, it is believed to be the final such Volante Vantage built. Chassis number DBVC-3738R has been in the same ownership since 1981. It carries an estimate of £500,000-£750,000.

Other notable lots include the unique Offord-bodied 1934 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Coupe de Ville (£35,000-£50,000) and a 1929 Renault 6NN Torpedo (£9000-£12,000). 

The sale also includes one of the original ‘hot hatches’ – a 1987 Ford Escort RS Turbo.

According to the vendor, apart from the upgraded Scorpion stainless steel exhaust, the car is 100% original, and still has the stereo and cassette holder it was equipped with in the factory. It could fetch between £5000-£7000.
