In Auckland on the 4th of July, Webb’s will be auctioning a stunning array of some of the collector car market’s most prime cuts (Date TBC). The supercharged V8 Aston Martin V600 is certainly worth the international plane ticket, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This Carrozzeria Touring-designed Jensen Interceptor featured the largest engine Jensen had ever fit into a car at the time, being a MK III, and is likely the best thing to ever emerge from West Bromwich.
Elsewhere, the Italians have put on a good showing too. A sleek Ferrari 360 Modena looks to steal the show with its tasteful combination of grey over red, leaving its modern classic status unchallenged. Also up for grabs is a 16V Lancia Delta Integrale, which represents a relatively affordable way to realise your WRC dreams.
However, perhaps the most exciting group of cars available are from Germany. There are two sparking highlights of Mercedes’ Sports Leicht range: the R129 SL 600 features one of Mercedes' greatest engines of all time, while the achingly pretty 230 SL Pagoda needs no introduction. Those looking for a little more fun will be pleased to see a two-tone blue VW T2 bus, and for the twisty sections of highway, a rotary FB Mazda RX7.
