A 1972 Opel GT 1.9L could make up to £11,500.

NEW classic car auction house CCA will be offering more than 80 cars at its launch sale on March 3, being held at the world-renowned Silverstone circuit.

A stand-out car is a 2001 Rover Mini Cooper, a last of the line example from the Longbridge plant and the last to be sold in Scotland. This Mini is sold in ‘as new’ condition having covered only 182 miles, and is expected to fetch up to £16,000.

Other highlights include a 1993 BMW M5 Nurburgring, estimated at £11,000 to £13,000. With a 3.8 litre engine and still in its original condition, this car would provide a thrilling drive for any classic car enthusiast.

One particularly special lot on offer is a 1957 Volkswagen T2 pickup/race car transporter. Having covered little over 8,000 miles in 17 years and fully restored with its original interior, this transporter is anticipated to sell for £17,000-£19,000.

A 1972 Opel GT 1.9L has also attracted wide interest. Having recently undergone a £21,000 restoration, this rare car presented in bright orange is sure to turn heads, with an estimated price of between £10,500 and £11,500.

A 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E Cosworth is also to be offered at the sale. Purchased new by Lord Litchfield, this lot is offered at no reserve.

The sale will start at 2pm with classic car expert Quentin Willson hammering away the first lot, a 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC, after hosting a talk on how to buy a classic car at auction.
