Multi-million Euro results in Essen for Coys

Published 07 April 2014

Coys auction at the Techno-Classica Essen show once again made some strong sales, with a total of in excess of €4m. The company, which is the long-term resident auction house at the classic and historic car show, sold some important cars with the top car being a 1972 Ferrari Daytona.

The 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta made €487,305, which is a perfect reflection of the higher European prices for classic cars, but proof that demand for what was once the world's fastest production car shows no sign of slowing. Other strong sellers included a 1963 Bentley S3 Continental Flying Spur for €170,825 and a 1965 Ferrari 330GT 2+2 for €167,468.

Other important classic cars that went under the hammer were a Pur Sang Bugatti Type 35 C, which sold for €165,230, a 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Litre Roadster for €112,637, a 1929 Packard 640 Custom Eight Roadster for €109,280 and a 1937 Bentley 3½ Drophead Coupe by Barker for €109,280.

Chris Routledge, Managing Partner at Coys, said: 'We are delighted to have successfully sold a significant number of high-value historic motor cars to an international audience, with sales achieved on every continent of the globe. This truly outlines the global reach of the company.'

Coys next auction will be at Ascot on Saturday 26 April, which will include a display by the Royal Marines who are celebrating their 350th anniversary this year.
