Classic Car Auctions are set to host a 234-car sale on 18-19 September, with a Porsche 911 S heading the catalogue (estimate £70,000 – 90,000). First registered in 1971, the UK-delivered 911 was purchased by the consignor in 1986 and has covered less than 500 miles since being recommissioned in 2015. CCA has flagged a recently developed engine noise and reduced the reserve to reflect the need for further investigation.
European machinery dominates the top end of the inventory, a two-owner 21,000-mile 1987 Ferrari 328 GTS in triple black is listed at £65,000 – 75,000; a 1991 Audi Quattro Turbo, one of the final 50 produced, is £60,000 – 70,000; and a left-hand drive 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera showing 41,300km – originally black but now vinyl-wrapped in Verde Ithaca – which resided in a private collection in Dubai, prior to import into the UK in 2015, is £50,000 – 60,000.
Highlights at H&H’s 16 September live online sale include a 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster with 49,900 miles from new (estimate £80,000 – 90,000); a one-owner 14,700-mile 2002 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante (estimate £35,000 – 40,000); and a 1984 Ferrari 308 GTS QV, believed to have been owned by music legend Iggy Pop in the late 1990s (estimate £20,000 – 30,000).
A 1906 Darracq Type R 10/12 is among seven Veteran Cars due to cross the block at Richard Edmonds’ 19 September sale. Little is known of the car’s early history prior to the mid ‘50s, but by 1974 it was part of the renowned Jimmy Boland collection in Ireland, before being imported into the UK and purchased by the vendor’s late father in 2016 (estimate £35,000 – 40,000).
Bonhams’ 20 September sale at Bicester features a 4,650-mile 2018 McLaren 570S, owned by the late Joy Rainey who held the Ladies’ Record at Shelsley Walsh hillclimb for many years (estimate £60,000 – 80,000); a 48,072-mile 2010 Bentley Continental Supersports, previously owned by golfer Rory McIlroy (estimate £50,000 – 60,000); and a two-owner 1995 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evo II showing some 188,700 miles (estimate £35,000 – 45,000).
A matching-numbers 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster has been consigned to Brightwells’ timed-online auction on 24 September. Owned by the vendor since 1962, it was the subject of a £21,000 mechanical overhaul and re-trim by Wren Classics in 2016, and carries a pre-sale estimate of £60,000 – 80,000.
Other notable entries include a single-owner 1977 Triumph Stag showing 34,000 miles that requires recommissioning after recently emerging from storage (estimate £7,000 – 9,000); a 58,221-km, right-hand drive 2005 BMW M3 CSL imported into the UK from South Africa in 2016 (estimate £35,000 – 40,000); and a time-warp 1982 Vauxhall Chevette L from the Vauxhall Motors Heritage Collection, with just 8,281 miles from new, which is offered at no reserve.
Historics returns to Ascot Racecourse for its 26 September sale where a restored, one-owner, left-hand drive, 38,190-mile 1977 Porsche 911 Turbo in its original rare shade of Sahara is catalogued at £105,000 – 125,000. The line-up also includes a 1953 Austin-Healey 100M – restored by marque specialist Bill Rawles – with period competition history at Goodwood and Silverstone in the hands of its first owner David Shale (estimate £220,000 – 260,000).
