The best cars at the 2017 Aston Martin Works Bonhams Auction

Each year Aston Martin Works and Bonhams auctions off some of the most beautiful Astons ever built - here's our pick from 2017's auction

Down an otherwise unassuming road in Newport Pagnell lies the historic home of one of Britain's best-loved marques: Aston Martin. For nearly 60 years the company has had operations here, and while series production ended in 2007 (moving first to Gaydon and soon St Athans) it's still the home of Aston Martin Works - the company's biggest and best heritage servicing and restoration department.

Each year, Aston Martin Works also plays host to the Bonhams Aston Martin Auction. 2017 was no exception, and the 18th year of the Aston Martin Works Bonhams auction saw some truly stunning cars for sale - along with some more 'challenging' purchases. Rare barn finds, immaculately kept collector's cars and bespoke one-offs all featured, as well as a large collection of memorabilia.
