Anglia Car Auctions achieved an 83% sale rate at its 25 January auction, with more than 220 lots going under the hammer. Strong results included a 2016 Lamborghini Huracán Spyder LP610-4 with little in the way of history – sold on behalf of a finance company – which smashed its £95,000 – 110,000 estimate, making £144,160, plus a pair of no reserve entries; a recently restored 1966 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider 1600 at £79,500 and a 217,831-km 1988 BMW M3 Evolution II at £68,900.
Among the Land Rovers on offer, an unused 2015 Defender 90 with only 80 miles on the clock hit its lower estimate, selling for £45,580, while a four-owner 1971 Series III SWB that had just emerged from a meticulous 2½ year restoration brought £32,680 (estimate £35,000 – 45,000).
A 1986 Ferrari 412 that had recently completed a trouble-free tour of Scotland changed hands for £27,560 (estimate £25,000 – 28,000). Delivered new to Peter de Savary, the final iteration of Ferrari’s grand tourer had covered 73,491 miles with eight further owners.
British machinery dominated the sales at SWVA on 31 January, with the top three comprising a 1937 Rolls-Royce 25/30hp Limousine by Windover at £23,000 (estimate £18,000 – 19,000); a 1998 Jaguar XK8 with only 9,879 miles from new sold for £13,000 (estimate £18,000 – 19,000); and a 1968 Jaguar Mk II with a 4.2 litre XJ6 engine and modern upgrades also took £13,000 (estimate £14,900 – 15,500).
