Silverstone Auctions will be offering racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart’s first ever race car for auction in its sale at the Silverstone Classic on July 26-27. The car is an extremely rare 1960 Marcos GT Xylon, estimated at £35,000-£50,000. Marcos built just nine Xylons. The car came to be driven by Stewart when, in 1960, Scottish racing enthusiast Barry Filer was having his race cars prepared by the Stewart family garage and invited a young Jackie to test with him at Oulton Park.
