Auction house Bonhams will be holding its biggest-ever Aston Martin sale today.

More than 50 cars and 170 motor memorabilia will go under the hammer in what will be the largest sale of its kind in the auctioneer's 16-year history.

A number of rare and exclusive vehicles will be up for grabs, some of which are expected to fetch more than £1 million.

Tim Schofield, head of motor cars for Bonhams UK, said: "This year's sale features a selection of significantly rare left-hand drive Aston Martins from the David Brown era.

"At the time, only a small number of left-hand drive models were produced by the luxury marque, making the models incredibly rare.

"This year's sale - in which more than a quarter of cars are left-hand drive - is very unusual indeed.

"But it's not all about left-hand drive models.

"This year's sale has over 30% more lots than 2014, meaning there's something for everyone."

The auction will take place today at Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire.
