German Engineering And Italian Glamour Come Together

German engineering and Italian glamour will grace the forthcoming Classic Car Auctions (CCA) sale on the 23rdand 24th March, at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show.

Amongst the cars offered are the cult classic Audi Quattros, Italian glamour from Alfa Romeo with the Giulia Sprint GT Veloce and the classic and beautifully style Mercedes Pagoda.

For those that remember Ashes to Ashes, the Audi Quattro was made famous by Philip Glenister and the phrase “Fire up the Quattro” which led to a cult following and in rallying is where they really made their mark claiming many wins in famous hands. So, when a really fabulous example becomes available people tend to get quite excited. CCA have this “out of the box” 1986 time warp example, which for the first 30 years had just two owners. The car is finished in solid white with an unmarked black interior and graced the front cover of Classic and Sports Car in October 2016. The car has covered 76,500 miles and still has the original Whitehouse Audi stickers and dealer plates with an estimate of £30,000 to £35,000. If white isn’t your colour, there is a second Audi in Tornado Red in the same sale for £25,000 to £30,000.

A bit of Italian glamour will grace the auction with a lovely little Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce from 1967. This car has had just five owners and was subject to a full restoration between 2007 and 2010 and comes with photographic evidence of the restoration. The paintwork was treated to a light refresh in 2018 and has been recently serviced so is ready to go to a new home with an estimate of £20,000 to £25,000.

CCA have two Mercedes “Pagodas” in the sale and the 1967 250 SL is a fabulously presented car in cherry red. This is a left hand drive version which was imported into the UK in 2015 and has since undergone restoration with a full body respray, new chrome, interior, engine and other mechanicals. The car has been with the owner for the last four years and comes with a matching hard top and a new tan soft top. A beautiful car estimated at £50,000 to £60,000. If red isn’t your colour, then a silver 230 SL Pagoda is being offered in left hand drive and in a very presentable condition.

Gary Dunne from CCA commented “We are very privileged to have some really stand out cars for our auction at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show. The Audis have a strong following so should do well, the Alfa is a lovely car and will give the new owner lots of enjoyment, the Porsche is very rare and both the Mercedes appear to be fine looking cars. These are only a small selection of 190 cars we have for sale, there is something for everyone in all our auctions whatever your budget.”
