Classic cars on offer at auction

Those looking for a good price on a Porsche 911 Turbo might want to travel to Surrey where one of the biggest used-car auction specialists in Europe is holding its Christmas Classic sale.

A selection of modern sporting classics, luxury limousines and collectable cars will be available at the British Car Auctions seasonal sale, including a 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo in Speedline Yellow.

The yellow 911, valued at about £40,000, is not the only Porsche on offer at the event. Bidders will also be able to pick up a 1983 911 SC Cabriolet in black. The distinctive model is expected to fetch more than £20,000.

The sale, at the firm's Blackbushe auction centre on December 2, will include a historic race-prepared Jaguar E-Type. The vehicle was built in the mid-1970s for the Modsports race series and last raced in the late 1970s. It also took part in the Brighton Speed Trials in 1977 and 1978.
