Hundreds of automobiles are going to be auctioned by Classic Car Auctions (CCA) this year, and here are among the best of cars from the auction firm’s forthcoming March sale.
For sure, CCA has a bustling 2019 schedule ahead. Things will get in progress before March is over, as vehicles head to the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show that will be held on March 22.
The assortment offered at the most recent auction includes various Audi Quattros, as well as Grand Tourers – including the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce from the pinnacle of Italian style, also an attractive Mercedes-Benz 250 SL Pagoda and an once-in-a-while-seen Porsche Carrera 2 Cabriolet.
For unadulterated Quattro heritage, nothing can match the first Ur-Quattro, and there’s a 1986 model which looks absolutely great in its strong white exterior and black interior. Those looks have impressed not only us, but also Classic and Sports Car magazine that gave the vehicle a front cover spot in its October 2016 release.
For the initial thirty years of the vehicle’s life it only changed hands once. In addition, it has 76,500 miles on the clock and retains all of the Whitehouse Audi stickers and dealer plates. What makes the Audi even more compelling is that its top condition doesn’t make it cost much, it will only set you back £30,000 – £35,000 or $39,450 – $46,050. Just £5000 shy of that is another Quattro with Tornado Red paint.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT is about two decades older, yet similarly as important in financial and social terms, and has been owned by five different people since new. The car got fully restored sometime between 2007 and 2010 – there’s photographic provided with the sale to prove this, and with an extra touch of paint in 2018 the car becomes like-new again as if it has just been released.
Despite that, the classic Italian machine may be overwhelmed by the German vehicles that are also on offer at the sale, including the previously mentioned 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet.
This Porsche is one of 24 fine examples that were sold in the UK with wide body structure and right-hand drive. Just like the Alfa GT, the Carrera 2 Cabriolet has been carefully serviced to bring it back to its prime condition. To drive this car home, you have to shell out at least £42,000 – £47,000 or $55,250 – $61,825.
With Audis and Porsches at the deal, it’s just predictable that there will be a Mercedes-Benz as well, including a pair of ‘Pagodas’. The prominent vehicle is a 250 SL finished in Cherry Red that comes with left-hand drive and was imported to the UK back in 2015. From that point forward it’s been completely restored. The car features a marching hard top and perfect tan soft top roof. In case red isn’t your favorite color, there’s also a silver 230 SL Pagoda being offered by CCA.
