Modern classics shine at Sandown sale

Published 31 October 2016

Modern classics were in demand at Barons Autumn Classic auction. A 1991 Honda NSX made £28,600, while a 2000 Bentley Arnage Red Label made £23,100 – well over top estimate. And a 1996 Aston Martin DB7 Volante fetched £22,000.

But the top seller at the 25 October Auction was a 1967 Porsche 912 SWB Targa, which sold for £40,590. Following closely behind the Porsche at the Sandown Park sale in Surrey was a 1965 Ford Mustang. This also nudged over top estimate, achieving £33,000.

In total, 71% of lots found new homes, which almost all of the automobilia sold, including a 1930s Royal Enfield lady’s bicycle and a 1950s Rudge men’s bicycle. Barons’ final sale of 2016, the traditional Christmas Classic, is at Sandown Park on 13 December.
