Maserati Khamsin sells for 50% over its top estimate at Historics 7th March Auction.

Published 09 March 2015

At least 21 cars made more than their estimates at Historics sale on 7th March; 11 of them significantly more.

The biggest gain was shown by a 1979 Maserati Khamsin 4.9V8, estimated at £75,000- £80,000, but actually sold for £128,800 inclusive, more than 50% over its top estimate.

A 1970 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 S2 roadster did well too, making £12,400 over its top estimate of £66,000.

Top prices of the sale were achieved by a 1968 Aston Martin DB6 that sold for £191,520 and a 2001 Ferrari 550 World Speed Record Edition estimated at £160,000 and sold for £179,200.

MGA 1600 Roadster 1960 Historics

My personal favourite was a 1960 MGA 1600 roadster on chrome wire wheels and with some very impressive carpeting that made £17,360 against a top estimate of £16,000.

Porsche 911SC 1978 Rough Historics

There were some ‘no sales’, though, perhaps most notably a rust-free but severely sun-damaged LHD 1978 Porsche 911 SC with 193,000 miles imported from the USA and estimated at £12k - £16k.

The Morris Minor 1,000,000 had some badly mismatched panels indicating accident damage and a rebuild, but did check out as the actual 1,000,000 Morris Minor built.
