Prince Charles has a well-documented fondness for Aston Martins. The company reciprocated by loaning him a new hunter green 1994 6.3-litre Aston Martin Virage Volante, which he drove until around 2008. Since that time, it’s been on display at the company’s headquarters in Great Britain, but now Bonhams is selling it. At an auction at Aston Martin’s Newport Pagnell factory in England, it’s expected to fetch $81,000-$110,000.
Update: A 1991 DB4GT Sanction II Coupe sold for $1.94m, a new record for a DB4 Zagato. Other top sellers were a 1961 DB2 Vantage Convertible, which brought $968,500, and 1963 DB5, which fetched $773,500. Prince Charles’ Virage Volante sold for $192,000, well above its $79,000-$110,000 estimate.Devoted entirely to Aston Martins, the sale also features such rarities as a 1991 DB4GT Sanction II Coupe (est. $1.9m-$2.4m), a 1965 DB5 Sports Saloon (est. $390,000-$450,000), and a 1975 Lagonda Series 1 7-Litre Saloon (est. $00,000-$480,000).
