Formed in 2011, Silverstone Auctions is a world-class, specialist auction house for the sale of classic cars, modern supercars, all types of competition cars, modern and historic motorcycles as well as automobilia.
The Silverstone Auctions team is headed by Nick Whale, British racing driver and ex-main dealer for a number of prestigious brands including Porsche, Maserati and Ferrari.
We hold the exclusive automotive auction rights for Silverstone Circuit where we host a number of stand-alone events each year, as well as our annual headline sale as part of the Silverstone Classic, the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival. In addition to our sales at Silverstone Circuit, we also host a number of auctions each year at other major classic car events, including the NEC Classic Motor Show and Race Retro.
Over the years we have also been selected by a number of the UK’s official owners’ clubs to hold marque-dedicated sales, including the highly regarded Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain, Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club and Porsche Club Great Britain.
We take pride in selecting the very best-of-breed vehicles for our sales which not only attracts buyers from around the world, but has already helped us achieve 18 record-breaking auction prices to date on behalf of our vendors.
Our global customer base includes buyers and sellers from more than 30 countries around the world, from Europe to Asia, Australasia and the Americas, including private collectors, specialist dealers, as well as high-profile celebrity clients and professional racing drivers.
For the promotion of our sales we work closely with our PR and marketing agency of choice, which delivers global exposure of our events across our industry-leading social media channels as well as regular coverage in the most popular automotive magazines, online channels, regional, national and international newspapers, as well as radio and television appearances. Our team of classic car specialists and consignors are active classic car enthusiasts and can be found regularly at Europe’s major automotive events, including Goodwood Revival, Le Mans Classic and Retromobile, whether attending as a visitor or competing.
With years of market expertise and specialist knowledge of the world’s vintage and modern car brands, our team works hard to provide accurate valuations and connect vendors and buyers across our global customer base.
We also work with a host of charities to support fund raising for a number of worthy causes, including the Midlands Air Ambulance, Prostate Cancer UK, Harrison’s Fund, the BRDC Motor Sport Charity and many more.
