Silverstone Auctions latest sale at the NEC on the 10th November set a new auction record for a TR2. The car in question probably has the best provenance you are going to get being an ex-Works 1955 Le Mans 24-hours TR2 driven by Leslie Brooke and Mortimer Morris-Goodall to 19th position overall.
Despite a difficult backdrop at the moment for classic car sales we still get the odd outlier result and the latest was the princely sum of just over £30,000 paid for a 1959 Austin A105 Westminster Vanden Plas. The narrative does not give away the condition of the car, but the photographs certainly do although and it clearly captured the attention of at least two bidders to take it to such a premium which is undoubtedly a record for one of these cars.
Whilst the market seems to remain in the doldrums at the moment with a lot of price weakness across many marques and models, some are undoubtedly bucking the trend. Younger classics are generating a strong following and one such example was at the last H&H sale where a 1991 32,000 mile Audi Quattro 20V car achieved a very strong £84,375 against its estimate of £65,000 to £75,000.
Classic Car Auctions sale yesterday generated a strong result for a 1994 BMW 850 CSi which has 60,000 miles on the clock. This was a very strong price for one of these and although the mileage was relatively low it certainly wasn't a very low mileage car and yet still achieved an exceptionally good price.
Classic Car Auctions next sale takes place tomorrow at the usual venue of the Warwickshire Event Centre. The sale as always has an excellent selection of cars available in the sub £50k category which is where the action is at at the moment.
Despite the undoubtedly slow market conditions the auctions still throw up some major outliers in their results. This particular concours 1961 outside bonnet lock 3.
