The range of vehicles on offer was very eclectic, with a number of micro cars and other unusual vehicles from
“The Weird & Wonderful Collection”, through a magnificent 1931 Cadillac V16 Sport Phaeton by Fleetwood,
resplendent in pale green over silver with plenty of chrome, to a pair of 2017 Ferrari 70th Anniversary edition
models, a 488 GTB and a F12 Berlinetta. All the vehicles in “The Wierd & Wonderful Collection” sold, as did
the Cadillac, which achieved a within estimate £522,500, but neither of the Ferraris made the cut. Within the
other offerings there were also a number of ‘60s and ‘70s Maserati models from a single private collection, all
of which sold either at or after the auction.
It is only fair to say that the overall sell-through rate was quite low, just a little over 50% on the night, which
must have been disappointing, but the overall figure for cars sold reached £9.4 million including buyer’s
premium, and this figure excludes post auction sales. A number of the cars came close to their estimates,
but obviously not quite close enough to clinch a deal. The biggest numbers of the night were for a pair of
Ferraris, at different ends of the age spectrum, and a Porsche. The top figure went to a 2002 Ferrari Enzo,
which achieved £1,973,750, followed by a 1952 212 Europa model, which broke the million pound mark,
selling for £1,017,500, whilst the Porsche, a 1993 911 Carrera RS 3.8 model, made just under the magic
million, selling for £933,125.
The 2019 edition will be held at the same venue, but will move to 05 November, as the early September date
is within a crowded period on the event calendar.
