The Silverstone Classic celebrates its 30-year anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, the company is selling a collection of 30 vehicles, all from one private collector. All will be offered with no reserve.

The collection, entitled The SA-30 Collection, will be part of The Silverstone Classic Live Online Auction on the July 31 and August 1.

"Following on from our last and very successful first live online auction in May, we are very excited and honored to have been entrusted to sell 30 cars from a significant private European collector, of which we are highlighting here," said Nick Whale, Silverstone Auctions Managing Director.

"The list of cars is truly exceptional, all with amazing histories and the mileage of some them is quite staggering. I would urge anyone who is thinking of adding to their collection or looking to purchase their next dream car to look at the cars being offered."

Among the vehicles being offered is a 1958 AC Ace Bristol. The model is fresh off a complete rebuild, which took a year to complete. It now sports a Gunmetal Grey metallic paint job and has a black leather interior.

The Ace Bristol will be joined by a 1992 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evo II as part of the Saturday portion of the auction. This model is one of 500 ever built. In addition to a fully-adjustable rear spoiler, the car features full leather sports seats, air conditioning, and electric windows. The car has just 25,056 on the odometer.

A 2008 Ferrari F430 GTC EVO is also being auctioned. It's one of just 14 of the models ever built and was raced by the late Allan Simonsen and its owner Pierre Ehret. When it was new, the car came with a long list of extras, which pushed the price tag over 465,000 EU.

The car ran at Sebring 12 Hours where it was run and prepared by Tafel Racing. They went on to finish 4th in class and continued to finish the ALMS season finishing in the top 10 eight times.

After just one season, the car was sold and its next owner raced it in the Pirelli World Challenge Series. In 2019, the car was returned to its Sebring livery by Bob Houghton and then run for a private track day.

The exceptionally low mileage 1988 Ferrari Testarossa being auctioned has 2,240 miles on it. The car's original owner took delivery a year after placing the order and only used the car during the summer months. From 1995 to 2009, the car was place in storage. It was sold in 2009, then again in 2012.

New electric luxury vehicles

Three new Mercedes-Benz EVs we can't wait to see

Mercedes showed off its electric future at the 2021 IAA Mobility show in Germany.

Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz is going electric, and though it only recently announced its firm plans to do so, it already seems that the German automaker is moving quickly toward that goal. At the 2021 IAA Mobility show in Munich, Mercedes showed off some of its upcoming electrified products. We've seen the EQS, a flagship electric sedan, but three newcomers made an appearance at the show.


Mercedes-Benz EQB EQB will be Mercedes' electric family SUV.Mercedes-Benz


EQB

EQB is the brand's family-sized SUV, offering seating for up to seven people. A long wheelbase of 111.3 inches and adjustable second-row seating allows more interior space for people and gear. Mercedes says the EQB will offer two powertrain configurations: The EQB 300 4MATIC will get 225 horsepower and the EQB 350 4MATIC will sport 288 horsepower. A front-wheel drive configuration will go on sale later and a long-range model will follow.


Mercedes-Benz Concept EQG The EQG will eventually become the brand's electric off-roader.Mercedes-Benz


EQG

Concept EQG is a preview of the eventual electrification of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, its boxy, upper-crust off-roader. This concept is far closer to a design exercise than something we'll actually see in production, but it's an interesting demonstration, nonetheless. With 22-inch wheels, wild exterior lighting touches, and what the automaker says will be legendary off-road abilities, the EQG will be an exciting vehicle when it does make an appearance.


Mercedes-Benz EQE EQE will follow the EQS as a smaller, sportier electric sedan in 2022.Mercedes-Benz


EQE

EQE is the second car to use Mercedes' EVA2 electric architecture, following the EQS sedan. The car is currently scheduled for a staggered release in mid-2022 and will feature a more compact and sportier design than its predecessor. Mercedes says that the car will be available with either 19- or 21-inch wheels, and notes that its size is comparable to the current CLS coupe-sedan. The car offers an impressive range of up to 410 miles on a single charge from its 90kWh battery and special charging capabilities through the Mercedes me Charge network.

Special edition Land Rover

Special Land Rover Defender stars in new James Bond film

The special Defender features several 007-inspired touches.

Land Rover

James Bond and British vehicles go together like bread and butter. The spy's most well-known rides come from Aston Martin, but Land Rover isn't sitting out on the action. The 25th film in the Bond series, No Time To Die, premiers in just a few weeks, and with it, a new special edition Land Rover Defender. Land Rover's SV Bespoke division created the special Defender, which in addition to making an appearance on the silver screen, will be on sale for a limited run to 300 lucky Bond fans willing to shell out the cash.

The villainous Defender is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that produces 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, and Land Rover says the powertrain is strong enough to push the hefty off-roader to 60 mph from a stop in just 5.1 seconds. The V8 is a recent addition to the Defender line, and comes paired here with unique suspension and transmission tuning, bespoke spring and damper rates, and a new electronic active rear differential.

Unique touches to the 007 Defender include "Defender 007" treadplates, special infotainment animations, and "007" exterior puddle lamps. The interior will get a laser-etched detail plate to denote its number among the 300 vehicles. No Time To Die will feature the Defender front and center, but it's not the only Land Rover in the film. Two Range Rover Sport SVR SUVs will also make an appearance, along with a Range Rover Classic and a Land Rover Series III.

If you're more interested in seeing the Defender's time on screen than you are in getting behind the wheel, it hits theaters in the U.S. starting on October 8, 2021. The film will be the fifth and final movie to feature Daniel Craig as Bond. However, if you're really excited about the Defender, get ready to pay up. Prices start at $114,600 and supplies are extremely limited.
