It is fast approaching one of the highlights of the auction calendar, this year’s Aston Martin and related automobilia sale hosted by Bonhams on the 18th May.
Who could have predicted that one hundred years ago this year, Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford’s creation, Aston Martin would still be going strong.
An amazing fact is that around 85% of the cars ever built by Aston Martin are still running, something here at R.S.Williams we are proud to be part of.
The Bonhams online catalogue can be found here:-
If you are considering purchasing or investing at the sale, R.S.Williams will have representatives available to offer advice. Please contact us for further information.
