Low-mileage desirables at Silverstone Auctions’ Salon Privé sale

At Silverstone Auctions’ forthcoming sale at the annual Salon Privé extravaganza, a number of low-mileage classics will cross the block – including five from a single collection that could almost have come straight from the factory…

The quintet in question includes three Mercedes: a 560 SEC from 1986 with 38,000km (under 24,000 miles), a rare manual 280 SLC from 1975 showing 16,500km (just over 10,000 miles), and a 280SE from 1985 with only 5,700km (around 3,500 miles). Also included in the group is a 743km (under 500 miles) Porsche 911 Supersport, and a 1988 Daimler Double Six with 2,390km (under 1,500 miles) – but note, removing the ghastly chrome arch trims from the latter is pretty much obligatory. You can view the full lotlist for the Silverstone Auctions sale at Salon Privé 2015 in the Classic Driver Market.
