Bonhams’ sixth Goodwood Members’ Meeting sale on 29 March is set to feature a 2018 Ford GT with an estimate of £700,000 – 900,000. The single-owner UK-delivered car has covered a mere 609 miles from new and carries the registration ‘1966 GT’.
Also crossing the block is an ex-Works 1936 Riley 1½-Litre TT Sprite with a guide of £280,000 – 360,000. ‘AVC 19’ finished ninth in its debut race, the 1936 Tourist Trophy, going on to claim a third in class later that year at the French Grand Prix.
Other highlights among the early entries include a 1965 Attila-Chevrolet Mark 3, a regular at Goodwood Revival and Members’ meetings (estimate £90,000 – 110,000); an Hispano-Suiza H6B Fixed Head Coupe, exhibited at the 1926 Olympia Motor Show (estimate £350,000 – 400,000); and a 1986 Jaguar XJS V12 HE Lynx Eventer, believed to be the only example given a 6.1 litre upgrade by TWR in period (estimate £55,000 – 65,000).
A concours-winning 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo 25th Anniversary tops the catalogue at Brightwells on 4 March with a pre-sale estimate of £80,000 – 100,000. One of just two ‘Anniversary’ 3.3 Turbos built in right-hand drive, it has covered 63,000 miles in the hands of five owners.
Ferraris on offer with sought-after manual gearboxes include a left-hand drive 62,584-km 1999 F355 Berlinetta (estimate £65,000 – 75,000); a 2001 360 Spider with 34,500 miles (estimate £50,000 – 60,000); and a 59,500-mile 1994 456 GT (estimate £35,000 – 40,000).
Elsewhere, an unused 2012 Land Rover Defender 90 Pick-up in Keswick green with just 7 miles on the clock is estimated at £27,500 – 30,000, and a recently restored 1969 Ford Escort Twin Cam, in single-ownership from 1983-2016, is £48,000 – 52,000.
Historics opens its 2020 calendar at Ascot on 7 March where the top-tier consignments are led by a 1970 Aston Martin DB6 which recently emerged from a three-year £120,000 restoration (estimate £279,000 – 320,000); a 1969 Lamborghini Islero S, driven by Roger Moore in The Man Who Haunted Himself (estimate £270,000 – 285,000); and a 3,045-mile 2016 McLaren 675LT Spider (estimate £240,000 – 275,000).
A brace of Lagondas are the star attractions at H&H’s 18 March Imperial War Museum sale, headed by a 1939 V12 Drophead Coupe that has been the subject of an exacting restoration following 40 years in storage (estimate £300,000 – 400,000); while a 1938 LG6 Drophead Coupe that was formerly owned by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands will go under the hammer with a £200,000 – 250,000 estimate.
A 1987 BMW M3 has been consigned for Classic Car Auctions’ first sale of the year at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show on 28-29 March. The car was imported from Japan in 2015 and now shows 58,967km (estimate £40,000 – 45,000).
Among the Japanese machinery, a 1997 Nissan Skyline GT-R with some 113,000 miles on the clock – and little in the way of modifications – carries an estimate of £18,000 – 22,000; a partially restored 1974 Datsun 240Z is listed at £16,000 – 20,000; and a 44,428-mile 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI Tommi Makinen Edition is guided at £20,000 – 25,000.
