Low-mileage Mazda RX-7 heads to auction

Published 16 March 2016

A low-mileage 1979 Mazda RX-7 is going under the hammer at Classic Car Auctions’ first sale of the year on Saturday. The UK right-hand drive car, which could fetch up to £12,000, has 35k on the clock and will be just one of the cars for sale at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre on 19 March.

Another Japanese performance car entering the sale is a limited edition 2000 Subaru Impreza P1. One of just 1000 made and only 669 believed to be left on the road, this example is estimated at between £10,000 and £12,000.

Fans of fast Fords will be able to bid on a 1985 Ford Sierra XR8 (£8000-£10,000). As one of only 250 ever made, this South African import will surely prove a smart buy.

There are plenty of hot-hatches going under the hammer, including a 1987 Fiat Strada Abarth 130TC - believed to be one of just five UK road registered examples. With just 8928 miles on the clock and with original paintwork, it is estimated at between £8000 and £11,000.

Ford Mustang 289

1966 Ford Mustang 289 2+2 Fastback (£34,000-£38,000).

Another special Fiat is a 1939 Fiat 500 Topolino originally owned by the second Duke of Westminster. One of 400 made, this fully-restored car has just 1593 miles (estimate £12,000-and £15,000).

But the car that’s grabbing most of the headlines is a fully restored 1966 Ford Mustang 289 2+2 Fastback. This is believed to be one of the best examples on the market. It is estimated at between £34,000 and £38,000 and enters the auction alongside six other American classics.

Commenting on the sale this weekend, CCA general manager, Guy Lees-Milne, said, 'This is our biggest catalogue yet and we have a fantastic selection of classic and modern cars on offer in our first sale of the year. With so many cars on offer, many with fascinating histories and provenance, we’re expecting a packed auction hall on sale day.'
