Preparations are underway for RM Sotheby’s to host its 15th annual London Sale November 6 at London’s Waterloo Place, just off Pall Mall and close to the Royal Automobile Club. The sale is being held in association with the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, taking place on Sunday, 7 November and will begin from the same location.

The 40-lot sale showcases a wide variety of stellar automobiles ranging from modern and vintage supercars, prewar tourers, and even a few race cars as well.

To be perfectly honest it is hard to pick just three favorites among the available lots but here is our attempt:

This Castrol-liveried 1976 Porsche 934 has an extensive racing pedigree and is eligible for just about any vintage race on the planet. Photo: Tim Scott ©2021 Courtesy of RM Sotheby’s
With the latest Bond movie still in theaters it is hard to look past this pristine Series I 1959 Aston Martin DB4. Photo: Tim Scott ©2021 Courtesy of RM Sotheby’s
Saving the best for last? This 1930 Bentley 4½-Litre Supercharged Tourer by Vanden Plas is one of 50 “Blower” Bentleys built as homologation cars and ex-works demonstration car. Photo: Tim Scott ©2021 Courtesy of RM Sotheby’s
