    Entries into the sale are limited so we would urge those considering submitting a car to contact the team as soon as possible. In the meantime, some of the fine motorcars already entered into the Salon Privé Sale are showcased below:
    1986 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage Volante - estimate: £825,000 - £925,000

    A mere 140 DB6-based Volantes were manufactured and of these, only 29 were specified with the more powerful Vantage engine. This particular car has undergone extensive recommissioning including a major service and suspension overhaul in 2013.
    This remarkable DB6 Vantage Volante will be sold with a full inspection report from Heritage Aston Martin expert, Desmond Smail, who will also carry out any remedial works required. The Aston Martin would make an impressive addition to any international collection and would be welcome at most prestigious classic car events around the world.
    1954 Bentley R-Type Continental Fastback - estimate: £900,000 - £1,100,000

    This one of 75 R-Type Continental was one of the first four seater sports coupes capable of speeds up to 120 mph, thanks to its upgraded 4,877cc engine – up from 4,566c in previous models.
    The highly desirable later D-Series mode here is offered with superb documentation and history -including original build sheets, handbooks, historical photographs, Autocar road test reviews and even owners’ correspondence. A very similar car was sold by Silverstone Auctions at last year’s sale for £1,012,000 proving its popularity in the current market.
    2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith - estimate: £165,000 - £180,000
    The Rolls-Royce Wraith is a four-seater, two door Coupe, based on the chassis of the Rolls-Royce Ghost. Launched in early 2014, the Wraith has been a turning point for the manufacturer and its popularity has been increasing since its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013. 
    Fitted with the new 'ZF' eight-speed gearbox and a 6.6-litre, twin turbo engine, the Wraith has the ability to go from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds in total comfort. 
    Delivered new in 2014, the car was ordered in a smart combination of Lazuli Blue and a special two-tone tan leather upholstery with a high specification option list. The car will be sold with just over 3,500 miles with a four-year warranty and all-inclusive service package until 2018.
    1958 AC Ace Bristol - estimate: £180,000 - £220,000
    Named as a ‘racing car for the road’, the Grandfather to the AC Cobra was first introduced at Earls Court Motor Show in 1953. The car epitomised a new era of British post-war sports car production, it was the first British car to be equipped with independent suspension by transverse springs but also had pioneering tubular ‘ladder-type’ chassis, which had been successfully used by the marque on previous cars.
    The Bristol engine was added to the AC Ace in 1956 and the partnership of the more refined straight-six engine with the lightweight bodywork, ensured the cars were competitive on the track in the hands of enthusiastic club racers, private owners and most notably by the Ken Rudd team at Le Mans in 1957 and 1958.
    In total, only 466 Ace Bristols were produced and are rarely seen on the open market. The car offered for sale at Salon Privé is resplendent in its original colour scheme in a superb condition. Having successfully been piloted at Spa 6 Hours, Dijon-Prenois and Silverstone Classic in the highly prestigious Sir Stirling Moss Trophy for pre-1961 Sports Cars, the car is offered with a full MSA Historical Technical Passport.
    1991 Ferrari 250 GTE Series II 2+2 Coupe - estimate: £300,000 - £350,000
    The car, which is largely based on the 250 SWB, was the marque’s first true production 2+2 and marked a new era for Ferrari.The 1962 matching-numbers example is presented with a large history file after a sympathetic bare metal restoration to return it to its original condition.
    The car looks superb in its original colour scheme. It comes complete with a large history file, including a full photographic documentation of its restoration as well as superb provenance as it was displayed at the 1962 Paris Motor Show.
