After a bit of a wait I can finally show you a full set of images from the Bonhams Aston Martin Works auction. This year’s event saw the British marque’s finest going under the hammer within the gleaming workshops of the Aston Martin Works facility in Newport Pagnell. Headlining the sale catalogue was a 1962 DB4 Series IV Vantage Convertible formerly owned by actor Peter Ustinov, which eventually sold for the tidy sum of £1,513,500. In sales terms it was a record breaking year for the Bonhams/Aston auction with the auction totalling £10.3million.
As a photographer, events like this are great for the precious metal but also for the people. I could people watch in the sale room for hours and it’s great fun trying to capture characters in the photos. Enjoy.
