London Concours Auction To Feature Aston Martin Owned By King Charles

TGR Staff - 03/27/2024

The London Concours is excited to announce its partnership with Iconic Auctioneers for the 2024 show. The event will be held at the Honourable Artillery Company in the city from June 4th to 6th. Iconic Auctioneers will conduct a luxury lifestyle auction at the HAC on Wednesday, June 5th, bringing further excitement to the second day of London Concours, the leading automotive summer garden party in the capital.

Iconic Auctioneers' London sale will offer a range of luxury lifestyle items to bid on, including collector cars, motorcycles, automobilia, high-end watches, fine art, and stunning jewelry. The auction will take place in the heart of the city, just a stone's throw from Old Street station.

The four-wheeled machinery on offer will include everything from much-loved automotive heroes of yesteryear to modern performance icons. Star lots will include a stunning 1970 Aston Martin DB6 Mk2 Volante, one of just 38 such cars built. Upgraded to Vantage specification, it is the same model owned by HRH King Charles and ranks as one of the most desirable Aston Martin variants of all. Also on offer will be a 1969 Aston Martin DB5, which has been fully restored by Desmond Smail and upgraded to a 4.2-litre specification. A true collectors' item - forever associated with James Bond.

The fine art element of the sale will feature works by Turner Prize winning English artist Keith Tyson (b. 1969). Iconic will offer his Studio Wall Drawing: Designs for Chicago Hyatt Centre (2003). Tyson is known for his conceptual works that continually challenge what constitutes reality, ruminating on themes of chance, causality, and interconnectedness.

The sale is set to offer London Concours guests an unforgettable auction experience in a setting like no other. Iconic Auctioneers is recognized as the UK's live auction market leader, with a track record of delivering stand-out auctions at leading automotive events across the UK and Europe.
