Affordable classics at Auctionata’s Berlin sale
The 10 cars we’ve chosen from the 39-lot catalogue are certainly not ultra-rare concours queens, but rather reflect what we consider good value for money. Take the well-presented 1963 Triumph TR4 Roadster, which served as an advertising car for a British vehicle bodyshop for several years, hence its tidy bodywork. Resplendent in its original shade of Royal Blue, and benefiting from a reupholstered tan interior, it’s estimated to fetch a reasonable 15,000-19,500 euros.
With a little TLC, the 1975 MGB GT 50th Anniversary special edition could be brought back to its former glory. We think the gold accents on the wheels and the British Racing Green paintwork look rather elegant and, at 8,000-10,400 euros, it’s a tempting proposition. Elsewhere in the sale, we’d love to try to master the BMW Z3 Coupé (est. 15,000-19,500 euros) with its 320bhp engine and short wheelbase, and the psychedelic 1980s interior of the Porsche 924 Turbo (8,000-10,400 euros) is still a very cool place to sit. We’ve listed our 10 favourite affordable classics from the show, or you can find the entire catalogue for Auctionata’s Classic Cars 436 sale listed in the Classic Driver Market.
