The recent Silverstone Auction netted some surprisingly high bids including: 

  • 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona formerly owned by Sir Elton John sold for £551,250.
  • Despite an estimate of £70,000 - £85,000 before the sale, bidding for a rare 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL started at £95,000 and after a rapid-fire battle between room, phone and online bidders it eventually sold in the room for a final price of £137,250.
  • A 1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 raced past the £100,000 mark during a fierce bidding war, eventually selling for £114,750 to an online bidder from Australia.
