CLASSIC CAR AUCTIONS HIGH-QUALITY CATALOGUE ARE STILL INVITING ENTRIES TO THEIR JUNE LIVE ONLINE SALE

Published on 18 Jun 2020, 15:48

Classic Car Auctions June catalogue is starting to take shape with sporty moderns and classics as well as some very desirable high-performance convertibles and tourers already consigned.

The sale which is set to take place on the 27th June will be a Live Online Auction and plans to build on recent successes with some very desirable cars. Closing date for entries is the 15th June.

One of the lots which will attract attention and looks fabulous in this glorious sunshine is the 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG F1. This is a superbly presented car in Obsidian Black and comes with the F1 Performance Pack which at the time was worth £8,500 and included uprated Nurburgring sports suspension, bigger discs and brakes and the speed limiter was raised to 186mph. Estimated at £32,000 to £37,000 with just over 48,000 miles, a massive history file and the Vario Panoramic roof, this is a tremendous car to own.

Another fantastic German-engineered sportscar is the 1993 Porsche 928 GTS, a rare and sought after car, in right-hand drive. The GTS was the final and ultimate incarnation of the long-lived 928 featuring a 5.4-litre V8 and this particular car has the Dynamic Kickdown automatic gearbox. With a tad over 70,000 miles on the clock and mechanically refreshed by Autombau Porsche after nearly 10 years in storage, it is estimated at £30,000 to £35,000. A lovely example presented in Guards Red.

We now move on to two fine classics. The first is a 1970 Jaguar E-Type S2 Roadster estimated at £45,000 to £50,000. This is an original right-hand drive UK supplied car in Signal Red with a brand new black hood. The current owner has kept the car is superb condition and comes with an interesting history file.  Classic British elegance in time to enjoy this summer.

The second classic is the 1974 Ford Escort Mk1 RS2000 which was built in 1974 and first registered in 2004. It comes with documentation to confirm that this is a genuine RS2000 which has since been developed and used on retro rallies, endurance road events and navigation trials. The sale includes all the original road car parts which have been safely stored. The car when not in use is kept in storage and is exceptionally well maintained. At £25,000 to £30,000 this is a cracking road registered RS set up for club level events.

Gary Dunne Classic Car Auctions Manager commented: “These are a superb selection of some of the early consigned cars. We have lots more going live in the next week and are still inviting entries, with the closing date being the 15th June.”

“This will be our first Live Online Auction and seeing the success our sister company, Silverstone Auctions, had last week, achieving an 89% sale rate, shows the confidence is still there in the market with cars selling at their top estimate or above. So, we are very much looking forward to our sale.”

"We are also encouraging vendors to take advantage of our premium offering of secure storage, professional photo and videography and potential one to one viewings the week before the auction for £300. This also includes the catalogue entry fee and shows your car off to its best.”

If vendors are unable to get their car to CCA, they can of course still consign their car and provide their own images and video to promote its sale at the auction.

For this auction, the premiums will be 4% plus VAT for the vendor and 10% plus VAT for the buyer.

The Classic Car Auctions team are now consigning cars and if you are interested please get in touch with them and they can help you through the process. They can be contacted on 01926 640888 or by email enquiries@classiccarauctions.co.uk

The Live Online Auction takes place on Saturday 27th June.
