A unique sports car designed by Ant Anstead is to be auctioned in the Silverstone Auctions’ sale at the NEC Classic Motor Show this November.
Having covered only 2,500 miles, the Comet is built around a steel spaceframe chassis which is clothed in GRP reinforced with Kevlar to create a shell that is strong yet light and is looking unique with classic lines of sports racers from the fifties and early sixties without becoming a pastiche of any one model.
Finished in Porsche Crayon Grey, the red quilted leather interior of this car reflects how thought about and special the car truly is. Full harnesses, white-faced dials, a Moto-Lita wheel, turned aluminium short-throw gear lever, satin-finished stainless details, and embossed leather – truly impressive.
This is a special opportunity to acquire a remarkable one-off designed car by Ant Anstead and his team at Dowsetts Classic Car Company. This is the new trading name of the company formerly known as Evanta; whose superbly built creations Silverstone Auctions has been privileged to sell in the past.
Silverstone Auctions return to the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show for the tenth year as the official auction partner for this iconic classic car show event. This long-standing partnership has seen the auction house achieve outstanding results year after year.
Gary Dunne Sales Controller for Silverstone Auctions added: “We are delighted to be back as the official auction partner for this event and what a truly delightful and special example to be offered. We are now encouraging early entries, so don’t miss your chance to submit your car next to this remarkable Comet.”
