Silverstone Auctions 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 sales 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.  November 2019 saw Silverstone Auctions power the first ever classic car auction in Saudi Arabia in association with Seven Concours, a key event at the Riyadh Seasons car show. 

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 attracts buyers from around the world. An auction is a call to action for buyers and sellers alike creating an electric atmosphere in the room.
