Bonhams releases December sale stock


British auction house Bonhams has revealed the cars that will be going under the hammer at its December sale.

There are hundreds of lots, with the classic and vintage cars joined by hard-to-find spares and memorabilia.

One of the top lots is a 1966 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Drophead Coupe. The luxury motor vehicle comes with the British manufacturer's world-renowned attention to detail and an exquisite interior.

Beneath the long bonnet sits a 6.2-litre V8, which came with larger carburettors, new distributor and raised compression ratio for this model. The car is estimated to fetch between £320,000 to £380,000.

Another car sure to get a lot of attention is a 1967 Aston Martin DB6. It's the sports saloon model built to Vantage specification and comes with a 4.2-litre engine.

Aficionados consider it the last of the 'true' DB models thanks to the fact the six-cylinder engine was dropped when this car was replaced by the DB7. The estimate is £320,000 to £350,000.

A 1952 Siata Daina Gran Sport Type A Barchetta could push both close for most expensive car of the lot, though, coming with a £250,000 to £350,000 estimate.

Siata was an Italian sports car manufacturer that was successful in racing in the 1950s. It started as a Fiat tuning company and eventually moved on to building its own production cars using parts predominantly from the Italian manufacturer.

It is believed that this Type A model is one of only eight in existence.

The December Sale takes place at Olympia in London on December 7.
