Barons Auction today announced that it will hold a special event on March 15. The company’s sale will include classic, historic and thoroughbred motor cars at Sandown Park.

The event will be headlined by a 1950 Mark VI Bentley. The list of other top vehicles to be offered for sale includes a Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible and a unique Vauxhall Astra.

The Mark VI Bentley comes with an extremely rare, four-door, all-aluminum coachbuilt Park Ward Sports saloon body, with experts believing that this is the last remaining example (two were ever made). The vehicle is expected to be sold for between GBP70,000 and GBP80,000.

As for the 1972 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible, this is offered in top condition, having covered a warranted 24,270 miles (around 39,000 km) and having always been services at Rolls-Royce garages. Estimate: GBP37,000-47,000.

The 1988 Vauxhall Astra GTE Quicksilver is a true one-off. It was comissioned by the Vauxhall plant at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire to celebrate its silver annivesary. It is expected to fetch between GBP5,000 and GBP7,000.

This car was commissioned by the Vauxhall plant at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, ‘Quicksilver’ celebrated the silver anniversary of the plant, and had never been on the public highway until it was MoT'd in Feb 2011, when it had covered just 57 miles from new. The paintwork – white blending to dark silver - is a base coat clear system called ‘Diamont’ from the Inmont division of BASF. The same colour scheme is used in the interior, where Connolly hide is used on the seats, door cards and even the headlining,” stated the press release.
