Full results from Classic Car Auctions’ third sale

The most desirable of a seven-car BMW M5 collection sold at Classic Car Auctions’ 6 June sale was a 1987 E28 BMW M5 saloon. The earliest M5 generation, the 176,000-mile car looked well cared for and was sold with a fresh MoT. It made £19,600.

At the other end of the M5 spectrum was a 2010 E60. Number seven of just 25 25th Anniversary special edition models made, the BMW had covered only 29,000 miles and had full service history. The future classic fetched £26,500.

A timewarp Ford Escort Mk2 that had spent most of its life in Switzerland also proved popular, selling for more than £4,200. Finished in its original gold paint, with a beige velour interior, the 1979 car had full service history and a genuine 31,000 miles on its odometer. As well as its original Ford wallet, toolkit and wheel changing kit, the four-door auto was sold with a period first aid kit, sewing kit and playing cards in its glovebox.

Another strong performer at the 6 June sale was a 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale Evo. An original UK car it showed around 70,000 miles supported by an extensive history file. It sold for just under £23,000.

Perhaps a sign that summer has arrived – an Alfa Romeo Spider S2 Veloce with 95,000 miles and a small split in its rear plastic window went for just over £11,000 - more than £3,000 above estimate.

The June sale was the first held at Classic Car Auctions’ new venue, the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre, and it was the first to take place on a Saturday. The organisers reported a strong turnout and a record number of bidders. Its next sale is on 29 August.
