Classic Car Auction Top Six Picks

Classic Car Auctions Top Six

Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery is expecting a huge array of lots in Classic Car Auctions first sale of the year and 100% of them are on our list to own. Unfortunately, we can't have them all so we’ve picked out our favourites so far.

Our list includes…

 First up is a dark knight of a car, a 2003 Nobel M12 GTO-3. It may not yet be a classic by oh my, it’s causing a storm over here, especially with its pristineness! Reading just 25000 on the odometer, we’re sure this is going to be a steal at the show. 

Estimate: £28,000 - £32,000


Next we have a Gleaming Guards Red 1990 Porsche 911 (964) Targa. Up for an estimated £35,000 - £40,000 this classic is worth every penny. It may have racked up 138,000 miles but it’s still going strong after a bare-metal respray in 2016 and updates to the engine with new parts.

Estimate: £35,000 - £40,000

Not looking so innocent and representing the 1980s is a 1986 Audi UR Quattro. This mean looking classic has had just two owners over its 33, changing hands just three years ago and has since been 'Classic and Sports Car' Magazine, October 2016 Cover Car. Could you be the owner of this poster-worthy motor?

Estimate: £30,000 - £35,000


Scoring a massive 117/135 by the Classic Car Auctions team, 4th on our list is an elegant 1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II. One of the many elements that caught our eye with this was the brilliant contrast of Georgian Silver paintwork and the rare factory Piano Black Ebony facia. Looking brilliantly stunning in its photoshoot pictures in the countryside, this is definitely one to keep a look out for across the weekend.

Estimate: £18,000 - £22,000

Definitely appreciated more with age is a 1948 Bentley MKVI Mulliner Lightweight Aluminium Saloon. This classic most certainly pulled at our heart strings since being restored over a staggering 22 years so whoever wins this lot will need to take pride in keeping it pristine for years to come.

Estimate: £32,000 - £36,000


Lastly, is one of the newer lots up for auction this year, a 2005 Aston Martin DB9. It might be a shock that we’ve chosen this as it’s not quite a classic or in need of a massive restoration, but we can appreciate a smart looking car.

Estimate: £22,000 - £26,000
