See the sensational Auto Union D Type at the NEC

| 24 Oct 2012

The 1939 two-stage supercharged Auto Union D-type that battled the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows 75 years ago will be on display at the Footman James Classic Motor Show courtesy of Classic & Sports Car and Audi Tradition.

The V12 racer will be the star of an already packed show, more of which you can read about here.

The legendary racer will be on the C&SC stand along with a rather more accessible car from the Our classics fleet.

Members of the editorial team will be at the show for the duration, so please come and say hello.

Meanwhile, Silverstone Auctions has announced new and exciting lots for its sale at the NEC event, including a Series II 1960 Aston Martin DB4. One of only 351, the car has been estimated at £180-200,000.

It comes complete with a British Motor Industry heritage certificate, a copy of the original Aston Martin build sheet, and a comprehensive history.

The Aston will join classics such as this 1952 split-window Beetle that was subject to a three-year restoration and is estimated to make £20-30,000.

Meanwhile, a Mk1 Golf GTI will be offered without reserve.

The auction has everything crossing the block from a Ford RS200 (£80-100,000), to a 1959 Alvis TD21 2dr Saloon (£17-22,000) and a 1973 Ferrari 308 GT4 Dino (£20-25,000).
