Silverstone Auctions Presents Star-Studded Lineup of Cars at Race Retro

Hit the road like a celebrity. Silverstone Auctions, a world-class, specialist auction house for the sale of collector cars and automotive memorabilia, will present a star-studded lineup of cars at the company’s annual Race Retro sale February 23 and 24. With cars on offer with provenance from Elton John, Demi Moore, and much more, this auction is a rare opportunity to purchase a celebrity ride.

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

Silverstone Race Retro

  • 1997 Aston Martin V8 Vantage V550-Manual: Delivered new to Sir Elton John in May 1997, this rare example features a six-speed manual gearbox, and just 8,663 miles on the odometer. Est: £190,000—240,000.
  • 1969 Dodge Charger ‘Bullitt’ Spec: Originally purchased by Demi Moore for husband Bruce Willis, this Charger is offered directly from the collection of Jay Kay of Jamiroquai, who imported it to the UK eight years ago. Est: £50,000—60,000.
  • 1966 Ford Mustang ‘Fastback’ V8 Manual: Signed internally by race drivers Dan Gurney and Phil Hill, this example is a tribute to Carroll Shelby and his Terlingua Racing Team of the early sixties. Est: £25,000—30,000.


“The lineup of vehicles at this year’s Race Retro Classic Car Sale is already attracting attention from car collectors around the world. With many carrying celebrity provenance and rare configurations, we’re proud to offer these vehicles to bidders who cannot attend in person through Proxibid, as we know we can count on the platform to deliver a best-in-class online buying experience for our clients.”

-Guy Lees-Milne, General Manager and Classic Car Specialist with Silverstone Auctions
