Vintage Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin will be on display at London concoursWed, 15 Jul 2009
Two icons of British car lore, a 1928 Rolls-Royce and a 1950 Aston Martin, will be on display at a concours event July 21-24 in London.
The cars are being shown at Salon Prive, a supercar and concours gathering next week in advance of RM auctions’ sale in October.
While the auction could get pricey with competitive bidding, Salon Prive will offer fans of British cars an opportunity to simply soak in these storied rides.
The 1928 Rolls-Royce Phantom I “Jarvis Torpedo” wears chassis No. 17EX and is one of just three experimental chassis made by the company at the time.
The 1950 Aston Martin DB2 Team Car “VMF 64,” with Mille Miglia and Le Mans credentials, is considered one of the most successful early DB2 sports saloons. The auction will be the first time this car has been on the market in 53 years.
The Aston Martin also will be entered in the concours in the Le Mans class.
