New auction boasts 88 debut lots

New auction boasts 88 debut lots

Motorists in the market for a touch of nostalgia will love the launch of a new auction house next week.

CCA debuts at the Silverstone circuit next Tuesday, March 3 with 88 lots to kick off with.

It aims to offer an "affordable", "fresh" outlet for motorists who want to start or maintain their interest in the booming classic car industry. And o rganisers promise that classic lovers heading to the iconic Northamptonshire venue will have plenty of highlights to look forward to.

Pride of place goes to a Mini Cooper which is likely to sell for £16,000 downwards.

What makes this 2001 Rover-build beauty so special is firstly, it's the final model ever shipped to Scotland, having been produced at the end of its Longbridge plant run. Secondly, it only has 182 miles on the clock, so is being sold "as new".

A prime example of loving restoration is to be seen with a magnificent Opel GT, expected to fetch £10,500-£11,500. A total of £21,000 has recently been spent on this head-turning, orange 1972 1.9L model's upgrade.

A Volkswagen car transporter is tipped to go for £17,000-£19,000. The 1957 T2 classic only has little more than 8,000 miles in its engine.

The winning bidder for a M5 Nurburgring from BMW, made in 1993, is expected to have to pay £11,000-£13,000 to seal the deal.
