Road Going Editions Of Classic Competition Winners To Kick Start The CCA October Auction
After the success of last months auction CCA are now gearing up for their next sale at the Warwickshire Event Centre on the 3rd October.
Early entries include a very rare 1970 Ford Capri Mk1 and a 1990 Lancia Delta Integrale and a 1988 Audi UR Quattro. But what do all these cars have in common? They all had successful competition siblings.
The Ford Capri is thought to be very special with possibly only 50 of these RS3100 left and originally built for homologation into European Touring Car Racing. This 1974 example is in what could be classified as show quality condition and suitable for any Concours where it has the potential to win. In the 1990s it underwent restoration with photographic evidence to show this and is finished in Modena Green with gold detailing around the power bulge and rear panel. With 48,000 warranted miles, loads of history including magazine articles and an estimate at £50,000 to £60,000 this is one good looking classic.
Our next lot is a Lancia Delta Integrale. Famous for its success in international rallying, Lancia won six constructor titles from 1987 to 1992 with the Delta. This original 1990 UK supplied example of the HF Integrale 8 valve, underwent a factory-approved conversion to right-hand drive, as there were only 50 right-hand drive factory cars built and none were imported to the UK. Presented in the classic Monza Red and with 56,000 miles, this Lancia had a full body off restoration in 2008. It also comes with lots of documentation and history with marques specialists. At £10,000 to £12,000 it would be a very welcome addition to your garage.
Audi is famed for its Quattro, four-wheel-drive systems and achieved huge success with their cars in international rallying with some of the most famous drivers. The desire for the road-going versions has always been strong and CCA have a very fine 1988 UR Quattro 10 valve. This original UK specification car has clearly been well cared for its five former owners who have covered 97,000 miles. Finished in Tornado Red and with the digital dashboard, this Audi has had £4,000 spent on it including the refurbishing of the original Ronal wheels. A fabulous looking car, estimated at £20,000 to £25,000, will certainly get enthusiasts fired up.
