A 1967 Alvis Burns Special – the only one of its kind in the world – will be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions at the Race Retro and Classic Car Sale on 23rd February. Estimated at between £60,000 to £70,000, this unique model will line-up alongside an extensive collection of stunning road-going classics, race and competition cars. There is also a variety of automobilia for auction over the Race Retro weekend at Stoneleigh Park. “The history behind this unique Alvis Burns Special is truly fascinating,” comments Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions. “Aside from being one of the rarest cars in the world, it is presented in an absolutely superb condition, as backed up with recent concours wins, adding to its desirability further.” The 5.4 litre example was created by businessman James Burns with the aim of filling a niche he spotted in the export market. Work began in the autumn of 1966 with a new chassis and bodyshell among the main alterations to the standard 3-litre model. However, a period of ‘motor mergers’ between car manufacturers in the Midlands around the time ultimately spelt disaster for the project and production never started. The result is a car that really is the only one in the world. Befitting its stature, it has been well looked after since its creation. Recent works include various mechanical repairs including a cylinder head rebuild, a re-trim to original specification and refurbishment of the internal woodwork. As well as being a concours winner it was also recently displayed on the Alvis Club Owners Stand at the NEC Classic Motor Show last November. “Classic cars don’t come much rarer than this so it’s a privilege for Silverstone Auctions to offer it for sale at the Race Retro and Classic Car Sale,” added Nick.
