A packed lot-list for Bonhams' famous auction at Aston Martin Works Service...

For the Tenth year running, Bonhams will be at Works Service in Newport Pagnell with its usual mix of top-flight Aston Martins. Since the inaugural event, more than $18.5m-worth of Astons and automobilia have been sold, making this perhaps the first port of call for anyone in the market.

Perhaps the most desirable car of this year’s sale is the unrestored, but still immaculate, 1961 DB4 Series III (estimate $120,000-146,000). With a fully documented history and 20 years in the hands of the first owner, this well-known car has already attracted considerable buyer interest. Since 2003, it has also received $37,700-worth of specialist attention…

Other highlights include a 1970 DB6 Mk2 Vantage Volante (estimate $425,000-478,000) and a 1955 DB2/4 MkII Drophead Coupé (estimate $120,000-146,000), which clearly demonstrates the upward trend in values pointed out in Price Watch last month. Also well worth a look is the 1963 Lagonda Rapide saloon, seriously cool and conservatively estimated at $40,000-53,000.

For those looking for a special experience on the day, Bonhams is also offering an Aston Martin Works Service Premier Package, which includes meals plus reserved parking and seating.
