A selection of rare vintage British automobiles and motorcycles, including Aston Martins, Jaguars, Rolls-Royces, and more, will go up for auction on June 23 at RM Auctions’ sale at Syon Park in West London at the Salon Privé luxury car show and concours d’elegance.

Among the standouts is the 1926 Rolls-Royce Experimental Phantom 1 Continental 10 EX, estimated to fetch between $650,000 and $1.3 million. The 10 EX represents a series of firsts for Rolls-Royce: it was the first Phantom 1 Continental to be fitted with sports body “torpedo” coachwork by Barker, and, of the three subsequent models produced, it was the only experimental Phantom 1 Continental kept by Rolls-Royce for six years, as well as the only test car of the factory. It is one of seven Rolls-Royce models for sale.

A famous one-of-a-kind 1939 Aston Martin 2-liter Speed Model, chassis number 727U, is estimated to fetch between $520,000 and $620,000. Featuring a Speed Model chassis with a narrow track, 727U has been a regular on the historic racing scene, winning second place at Goodwood in 2006 and appearing at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Motorcycles include the 1939 Brough Superior 11.50, chassis number M8/2214, in its original condition; it is estimated to sell for $60,000 to $75,000. Attendees must purchase an official auction catalog for about $80, which includes admission for two to the sale. RM Auctions also offers Internet, absentee, telephone, and iPhone bidding.
