Huge Historics Classic Car Auction on Saturday 6th June

Published 03 June 2015

Historics is holding its biggest classic car auction ever at Brooklands on Saturday, with 200 classic car lots and 100 motorcycles at estimates from a few hundred pounds to more than half a million.

The variety of lots on sale reflects the bullish and widening classic market with Historics matching its objective of being truly representative of all tastes and budgets. There is something for everyone across the nine decades of consignments, with a total of 85 motorcar and motorcycle marques represented.

Mini 1961 Barn Foind Historics

They stretch from a barn-found 1963 Morris Mini Minor restoration project, offered at No Reserve and seeking an enthusiastic owner to bring it back to life, through to a magnificently-regal 1929 Bentley 4.5 litre Open Tourer, on sale at an estimated £525,000-£575,000.

Ferrari 458 Aperta 2015 F34 Historics (1)

This contrasts dramatically with a consignment over 80 years its junior - a pristine example of the most powerful open-top Ferrari ever produced, the 562bhp Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta, one of just 499 models produced, similar to one sold this week by Tom Hartley Junior (£450,000-£550,000).  

Between these classic bookends, there is a veritable library of fascinating classics to suit all pocket depths, eras and interests.  

A 1981 DeLorean DMC-12, of the type immortalised in the film 'Back to the Future' and through the demise of its infamous founder, John DeLorean, has never been registered. With just 24 miles to its name and all but weeks of its 34 years in dry storage, it’s sure to set the auction paddles waving in the hall, joined by phone and on-line bids, at an estimate of £34,000-£39,000.

An enticing restoration project is a No Reserve 1975 Mercedes-Benz 450SLC owned in its infancy by no less than Peter Sellers.  It will require more than his legendary sense of humour to bring it back to its original splendor, but the outcome will be well worth the toil.

Once again reflecting the breadth of Historics' fascinating auction offering, amongst the 25 Mercedes-Benz consigned to this sale is a totally unmarked, 617bhp 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster that will help lighten the pocket of supercar lovers (£180,000-£200,000). This contrasts nicely with a handful or horses in a 479cc 1969 Fiat 500L (£5,500-£8,500), whilst the Fiat marque is also magnificently represented with a very rare and beautifully-presented twin-cam 1969 Vignale Samantha Coupé (£19,000-£26,000).

Classic British sports cars remain resilient and firm favourites at auction. Austin-Healey and Jaguar marques are well represented here, most notable being a barn-rested 1960 Austin Healey 3000 competition car, ripe for rebuild and returning to the tracks (£35,000-£40,000) and a very early flat-floor, beautifully-restored and original 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series One roadster (£140,000-£160,000).  

This model - and another tempting, truly original 1963 E-Type Roadster (£65,000-£75,000) - are amongst 17 Jaguars consigned, giving classic Italian exotica a run for their money on style and pride of ownership stakes, ably supported by a matching numbers 1961 Lotus Elite Series II (£56,000-£58,000) and duo of 1973 Jensen Healey Mk.1 classics – one a tantalising restoration project at No Reserve.

Iso Grifo Historics

Nevertheless, the inclusion in the sale of a fine selection of Italian sporting classics more than upholds Latin honours… Two Iso’s - a magnificent and very rare right-hand drive 1968 Iso Grifo 7-litre (£240,000-£280,000) and an elegant 4-door 1973 Iso Fidea (£75,000-£85,000) join a 1970 Lamborghini Espada (£45,000-£55,000) and a brace of 1998 and 1991 Ferrari Testarossas (£50,000 to £80,000) whilst Alfa Romeo enthusiasts will be impressed with the ten models mustered, from the 1950s to the turn of the century, including a 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider (£26,000-£30,000) and 1972 Alfa Romeo Montreal (£26,000-£32,000).

Chevrolet Camaro SS Historics

American classics have repeatedly been strong sellers at Historics and a wide range of consignments of classic USA saloons, sports coupés and pick-ups include a 1967 Ford Mustang Coupe (£28,000-£34,000) and 1967 GT390 Fastback (£32,000-£38,000) to set pulses throbbing. They are joined by an evocative 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster (£38,000-£42,000), and 350cu.in. 1967 Camaro S/S (£32,000-£37,000), while a fascinating wolf in sheep’s clothing is a 1939 Ford Deluxe Coupe street rod (£29,000-£35,000), fresh from a USA collection in California.

The Mercedes-Benz marque, which again always proves a robust seller at Historics, is represented by no less than 25 models spanning five decades - the majority very affordable - including an elegant 1962 220SE Pillarless Coupé (£8,000 -£13,000), up to the previously-mentioned 206mph 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster.

But it’s not all about power statements at Historics’ sales. The trio of 1960s Fiat 500s (and seldom seen 1970 Seat 600) take the balance of power in another direction, whilst two charming micro cars, a 1959 Messerschmitt KR200 (£10,000-£14,000) and 1956 Isetta Velam (£5,500-£7,000) will vie for attention on the small classic stakes; with a 1969 Austin Mini Moke (£11,000-£14,000) and host of equally affordable, fine quality classic saloons, coupés, convertibles and estates from home and international marques.

Historics at Brooklands grand summer auction, at the evocative Brooklands Museum in Surrey, commences at 10am on Saturday, June 6th, and is preceded by previews of all 300 motorcar and motorcycle consignments - on Thursday 4th (10am-5pm) and Friday 5th (10am-8pm). In-hall bidding is complemented by pre-registered telephone and on-line bids.
