10 cars we’d bid on at Silverstone Auctions’ May sale
Our star of the show may have flown under the radar of most – the very first Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth, chassis number one. Its pre-sale estimate of £90,000–120,000 may seem ambitious for such a car, but in recent years, ‘Fast Fords’ have seen something of a renaissance and Silverstone Auctions has been championing them all along. Arguably, this is the car that started it all – the definitive RS500. If older Fords aren’t your thing, there’s also a great UK-delivered GT offered, finished in the evocative combination of white with a blue stripe (est. £270,000–310,000).
If you’re behind the cause to ‘Make Green Great Again’, there are two beautiful emerald examples you won’t want to miss when they cross the block on 19 May. The first, a 1997 Lamborghini Diablo SV (£130,000–150,000), is finished in the rare shade of Verde Mica, while the second, a 1990 Aston Martin Virage (£33,000–38,0000), is resplendent in Buckinghamshire Green.
