Silverstone Auctions To Iconic Auctioneers

Silverstone Auctions is going through a very exciting change.

From the 9th of August, Silverstone Auctions will be known as Iconic Auctioneers. The name Silverstone Auctions was the ideal choice when the company first began, as all of its auctions were held at Silverstone Circuit. However, things have changed and now the auctions take place in various locations and events.

Iconic Auctioneers seems a fitting name and one that is better suited to describe the current evolution of the business. This change of branding is meant to highlight the unique and diverse range of auctions the business hosts, as well as the team’s innovative ideas and practices.

There are some other exciting changes coming alongside the new name such as no seller’s commissioner being charged on cars and motorcycles offered with no reserve, and private sales are also being added to the portfolio of services offered.

As you begin to see the branding change over the coming days, it’s safe to say that Silverstone Auctions has done a great job and is now moving into the future as Iconic Auctioneers.

Anglo-American Open Day

We talk a lot about our secure storage facility, The Hangar, which is located at Bentwaters Parks. As a location, Bentwaters is an incredible place with runways, bunkers, hangars, wildlife, and more.

Also located there is the Bentwaters Cold War Museum. As the entire base is a former USAF hardened command post, it’s the perfect place to look back on the troubling times of the cold war.

On 20th August 2023, the BCWM are hosting their Anglo American Open Day and they are looking for classic vehicles to display at the event. Whatever classic vehicle you have, it will be welcome at the show.

For more information about the Anglo American Open Day and displaying your car, please contact the museum on openday@bcwm.org.uk

Bonnet Assembly Complete

The bonnet of our 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite has been assembled and put back onto the car by classic car technician Jonn.

A new exhaust has also been fitted.

As this beautiful classic will go on to be a competition car through Bridge Classic Cars Competitions, it’s very exciting to see it go through the final list of jobs to be completed before it is won and taken home by its new owner.
