Classic Car Community Turns Attention to UK-Based Silverstone Auctions’ Salon Privé, Online Bidding Powered by Proxibid

Omaha, NE –  August 21, 2017 – Proxibid (www.proxibid.com), the world’s most trusted way to connect buyers and sellers of highly valued items, will provide online bidding for the highly-anticipated Salon Privé auction, hosted by Silverstone Auctions, a world-class auction house for the sale of classic cars. The auction will feature some of the most exquisite and rare timepieces and collector cars available at auction. Live bidding will begin Saturday, September 2 at 3:00 PM EUR, but online bidding is already available by visiting www.proxibid.com/silverstone.

Buyers who cannot attend the event in person can participate with confidence on Proxibid— an online platform committed to online safety for buyers and sellers of highly valued items like the classic cars for sale in this auction. Collectors will not want to miss the opportunity to bid live online on rare vehicles such as:

  • 1989 Ferrari F40: the Ferrari F40 was named in celebration of the company’s 40th birthday, and represents Ferrari’s entry into the supercar war of the late 80s. The left-hand drive example for bid has been meticulously maintained and carries an estimate of £875,000 – 975,000.
  • 1989 Porsche 911 (930): Believed to be just two right-hand drive examples in the world, this incredibly unique Minerva Blue vehicle is estimated at £190,000 – 220,000.
  • 1970 Porsche 914-6: This Adriatic Blue is unrestored, but has the benefit of dry-storage and rare driving for many years. This rare mid-engined vehicle shows 55,000 km and estimated at £50,000 – 60,000.
  • 1990 BMW E30 M3 Convertible: Just 786 convertible E30 M3s were ever produced, and just 476 were fitted with the 215hp engine, like the example on offer. With meticulous maintenance and dry storage, this car is estimated between £50,000 – 60,000.
  • 2008 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 KR: Described as the “most powerful Mustang to date,” the GT500 KR was the last to bear the Shelby name before Carroll Shelby’s death in 2012. This example, built in left-hand drive, is in incredible condition as it reads just 603 miles. It is estimated between £45,000 – 55,000.

 

“As the marquee event on the auction calendar, Salon Privé continues to draw the attention of bidders from around the world,” said Guy Lees-Milne, General Manager and Classic Car Specialist with Silverstone Auctions. “Silverstone Auctions is proud to bring the auction online with Proxibid, as we know we can count on the platform to deliver a best-in-class buying experience with safety and security of all participants in mind.”
