Two-of-a-kind classic Aston Martin rolls into Reims, France cars auction

After the success of last year's auction, Bonhams has announced its second sale of Fine Motor Cars and Automobilia at the Weekend de l'Excellence Automobile.

Amidst the rich history of the site, the weekend event celebrates classic cars and motorcycles with Bonhams' auction taking place amongst the spectacular demonstrations and aerial displays.

Very rare to the market, and highly desired by collectors and investors, is the Aston Martin 'Sportsman' shooting brake.

One of only two cars manufactured in 1996, and entirely hand manufactured in aluminium, this sought after model is estimated at €400,000- 500,000.

Also appearing in the sale is one of the most famous cars in the world, a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage, among the auction's top lots.

The beautifully presented car is one of only 17 left-hand drives manufactured to Vantage specification, with a manual 5 speed transmission. With only two previous owners, it is estimated at €300,000- 400,000. 

Bonhams' auction will be held on the former site of the French Grand Prix circuit of Reims-Gueux on Saturday, September 11.
