There is just over a week to go until Classic Car Auctions host their sale at The London Classic Car Show. This is a must-attend event for all classic car enthusiasts. The UK Auction Market Leaders will kick start this fabulous weekend on Friday 25th June for a viewing day, 10am - 7pm, followed by their auction day on Saturday 26th June from 12pm and finally on Sunday 27th June there will be a post auction showroom.

Classic Car Auctions are delighted to announce their star car for this auction, the 1965 Mercedes-Benz 230SL (W113) - Ex Britt Ekland. This is a truly stunning ‘Pagoda’ and has been delivered new to Britt Ekland. This example was given to Miss Ekland as a present by her husband, Peter Sellers, and is wonderfully presented in sparking White. With 49,950 miles indicated, a very good history file detailing proof of Britt Ekland’s ownership and having been with Classic Car Auctions vendor since 2012, the car has had just three previous keepers and is now offered at an estimate of £80,000 - £100,000.


Another excellent example going under the hammer next weekend is the 1985 Audi Ur-Quattro B2. This beautiful example is well presented with a recent fresh coat of Zermatt Silver over a black leather interior. This is the first generation of the UR-Quattro and is offered from long-term ownership. With a fresh MOT valid until June 2022, this Quattro is accompanied by a history file and original owner’s manual. Estimated at: £24,000 - £28,000.


Gary Dunne, CCA’s Sales Manager commented “We have some absolute superb examples in this sale on Saturday 26th June, the variety is truly fantastic! I would encourage anyone interested to visit our website to view the entire lot list, where you will find some extensive images of each car and videos.

Looking glorious in Basalt Black Metallic over black/sand beige leather is this 2009 Porsche 911 (997) Gen 2 3.6 Carrera Cabriolet (PDK). This is a fabulous, second-generation, drop-top example of the hugely impressive 997 Carrera 2. With just one former owner, a Porsche Main dealer history with fully stamped service book and Smart 19” Alloys, Classic Car Auctions have estimated this car at £32,000 - £37,000.


The last of the four cars previewed is the 1998 Aston Martin DB7 Volante. This is arguably one of the most attractive Astons ever produced, Ian Callum’s superb 90s classic. Superbly presented in Buckingham Green with Cream leather pipped green, this beautiful car has been with Classic Car Auctions vendor for the last 17 years with just two keepers prior. The car is accompanied by a comprehensive history, including Aston Works and latterly, marque specialists. This is a valuable addition to any collection and is estimated at: £18,000 - £22,000.
