BARONS’ first Saturday auction of 2017, at Sandown Park, saw buyers flock to view the 100 cars on offer.
The star of the show was the very original Jaguar E-type V12 convertible. The successful bidder cut things fine, just managing to register in time and entering the auction hall well after bidding on the car had begun. But it was worth the rush, as they secured the car for £81,400.
Bidding started well with a 1972 Land Rover Series 3, going for £4,510 – well over the guide price.
A Rolls-Royce Corniche, Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz, and Chevrolet Pick-up were all in wonderful condition, and were further evidence that really nice cars will always sell well, achieving £35,750, £28,050 and £26,400 respectively.
Triumphs sold very well, with six out of seven of the various TRs finding a new home. And at the modern end of the scale, six BMWs sold. In fact, German marques sold well yet again, with Mercedes, Porsches, and VWs also selling.
Barons’ next sale is their British Heritage, Classic and Sports Cars auction at Sandown Park on June 13.
