SILVERSTONE Auctions’ Race Retro auction has some of the finest classic and competition cars being offered at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, next Friday and Saturday (February 21 and 22).
A 1964 Aston Martin DB5 is quite possibly one of the very best examples available, having undergone a meticulous and methodical restoration.
