Future classics under the hammer at BCA

Published 07 September 2017

A 1984 Ferrari Mondial sold for £24,700 at BCA’s future classic auction. The QV 2.9-litre Coupe in Rosso Red had covered 57,000 miles when it went under the hammer on Saturday, 26 August.

But the bargain of the day looked like a 1987 Citroen CX 2.5 GTI Turbo. Finished in blue with 83,000 miles it realised £1300.

A car that garnered plenty of interest was a year 2000 Jaguar XKR 4.0-litre Supercharged Convertible in Sapphire Blue, with full ivory leather interior, wood veneer dash and black hood. This grand tourer had covered 88,000 miles and sold for £7350.

And a 1998 Lotus Elise Sport 160 made £11,600. The Lotus Racing Green car came with black leather interior and black hood. The car had covered just 63,000 miles from new and was offered in stunning condition.

A 2001 Bentley Arnage 6.8-litre Red Label Saloon was also on offer with a warranted mileage of 46,000. It sold for £20,000.

Other sale highlights included a 2000 Mini Classic Cooper 1.3, which needed some light restoration. While a Renaultsport Clio 3.0 V6 24v sold for £19,600.

Stuart Pearson, BCA UK managing director, was pleased with the results. ‘There was interest across the board, from high value modern performance cars, to older, more travelled examples from the 1970s and 1980s

With nearly 100 cars sold on the day and a turnover approaching £1 million, BCA future classics auction is being planned for later in the year.

"1998 Lotus Elise Sport 160 made £11,600" - The official 160 sport wasn't produce by Lotus until two years later. Someone put a 160 sport sticker on a normal Elise. I thought this type of shenanigans from car dealers at auctions disappeared with the Ark. Obviously not !
