Quality, Low Mileage Vehicles Fill the Catalog for Silverstone Auction’s Salon Privé Sale in the U.K., Online with Proxibid

August 24, 2016 – Omaha, Neb. – Proxibid (www.proxibid.com), the world’s most trusted way to connect buyers and sellers of highly valued items, today announced that Silverstone Auctions (www.silverstoneauctions.com), a world-class auction house for the sale of classic cars, will bring its upcoming Salon Privé Sale to the Proxibid Marketplace. While the vehicles in the auction are beautiful and highly sought after in their own right, they hold in common quality and low mileage, making this year the most exciting Salon Privé event to date. Live bidding will begin Saturday, September 3 at 3:00 PM EUR, but online bidding is already available by visiting www.proxibid.com/silverstone.
