Here you can watch my walk around video of this month’s classic car auction at ACA. I didn’t manage to catch all of the cars but there were some special ones there, and some pretty ridiculous prices too!
The McLaren P1 GTR and Aston Martin Vulcan are two of the biggest hitters among the most recent cars built (let alone track cars). This video lets you see them on track together, which I would imagine is incredibly rare considering the number of them and also the cost of bringing them together too. Its a pretty great video so hopefully you’ll enjoy it too.
I love an engine swap, and here are some really crazy engine swaps for you. Wouldn’t you love to have the time and money to build something completely mad that you have no real use for?
I went to the ‘Spirit of Motoring’ sale yesterday evening which featured a lot of my first Auction Spots and it was great to see them all in the flesh and see what they sold for. The yellow Ferrari auction spot wasn’t at the auction as it was withdrawn until the December auction. The auction wasn’t hugely attended but there were buyers online and on the phones. There were some real bargains including a couple of Ferrari 355s that sold for around £50k each, which is a lot less than you’ll find them for sale online. A few cars didn’t sell but a full list should be available on the Coys website soon.
Here is a walk around of the Historics Auction from last month, I meant to post this a while ago but didn’t get round to it. There were some awesome cars at this auction and some real bargains too – a Ferrari Mondial sold for a bid price of just £20k! That particular car was very low mileage example in very good condition, I saw a ratty one with high mileage sell for a lot more at the CCA auction on the same day. My favourite item in the sale was the Renault truck that was owned by Enzo Ferrari’s mother and was used to transport him around the countryside as a child. It started at a bid of £1k with no reserve and sold for over £30k to a dealer!
I’d seen this oddball at the auction and I can’t say I was a huge fan, its a bit odd looking and doesn’t appear to fit together well. To distract you from the kit car image is the eye-burningly bright paintwork which I am definitely a fan of. Continue reading “Melling Wildcat post auction.”
I’ve seen online over the last couple of days that this Renault Alpine advert has been banned by the Advertising Standards Agency with a fair few complaints, most likely for ‘promoting dangerous driving’. Continue reading “Renault Alpine Ad banned by the ASA – but listen to how glorious it sounds!”
