Over 100 classic cars to be auctioned off

Over 100 classic cars to be auctioned off

Petrolheads are in for a treat later this month when more than 100 classic and iconic cars go under the hammer.

The lot list at Classic Car Auctions' two-day sale at CarFest South features everything from British favourites and Italian masterpieces to beautifully restored camper vans and motors that once had celebrity owners.

Stealing the headlines is a 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Manual Roadster, estimated to fetch in the region of £65,000 to £75,000, with a racing green exterior and a contrasting cream leather interior.

The Jag is a fine right-hand drive example, which has been owned by the current vendor for over a decade.

A 1983 Austin Metro Vanden Plas 500, meanwhile, is one of 25 cars in the auction to be offered with no reserve.

Having covered a mere 741 miles and having had just one registered owner since new, the Austin stands out from the crowd as a real collector's item.

It has been part of the famous and historic Patrick Collection housed in Birmingham for several years.

The auction will take place at Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire on 29 and 30 August.
