The ‘Sotheby Special’ DBSV8 – a ‘barn-find’ unseen for 40 years is to be auctioned by H&H Classics on October 14.
The Ogle-designed, futuristic show car based on an Aston Martin DBSV8, first showcased at the 1972 Geneva Salon and Montreal Motor Show. One of only three such cars, the first of two originally commissioned by the W.D. & H.O. Wills tobacco company to promote ‘Sotheby’s Special Reserve’ cigarettes. Stored in secret for 40 years, it still carries its original dark blue paintwork, gold pinstriping and vibrant green Moquette upholstery. To be offered by H&H Classics at its 14 October 2015, Duxford sale at £100,000 - 120,000
