Aston is top lot at Barons sale

Published 26 July 2019

A 2005 Aston Martin DB9 Volante in need of some TLC smashed its estimate to make £26,620 - the top price of the day at Barons’ Summer Classic sale.

The car, which went under the hammer at Sandown Park racecourse on July 16, was a stylish but worn example of an up and coming modern classic.

Second highest price of the day went to a 1930 Nash Ambassador 8 4-door sedan that sold for £26,400.

Third past the post was a an ochre-coloured 1973 Alfa Romeo GT Junior 1600, which exceeded top estimate to sell for £22,000. The car had been de-bumpered, fitted with an Alfa Romeo 2.0 litre Twin Spark engine, and an Alfaholics fast road suspension set-up and road-legal semi-slick tyres.

In fourth and fifth places were a pair of Bentleys - an ex-press car 2003 Continental GT, and a 1962 Bentley S2. They achieved £21,450 and £19,800, respectively.

An 1970 Rover 3.5-litre P5B that was said to be immaculate exceeded its top estimate, selling for £16,940. We had our eye on the 1998 Mercedes C43 AMG estate, which was estimated at £2500-£4000 but which eventually sold for £6050. 

Barons next sale is its annual Jaguar Heritage, Classic and Sports Cars auction on 21 September at Sandown Park.
