Bang-for-buck ‘youngtimers’ from Historics at Mercedes-Benz World

The catalogue for Historics Auctioneers’ annual Mercedes-Benz World is a vast treasure trove of interesting collector cars, but it was the plethora of ‘youngtimers’ offered with tantalisingly affordable estimates that really piqued our interest. These are our favourites…

Naturally, bidders are encouraged to do their due diligence beforehand, but there are certainly some bargains to be had at Historics Auctioneers’ Mercedes-Benz World Sale on 23 November. Just take the two-owner 2008 Maserati Quattroporte, the fully loaded Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG that cost over £90,000 in 2003 and the opulent Black Sapphire 2001 Bentley Arnage T, all of which have attached pre-sale estimates of below £25,000. 

We’re perhaps most taken with the gorgeous white-over-navy 1992 Ferrari 348TB, a colour combination you don’t see very often but one that accentuates the car’s distinctive early-1990s styling. You can find our 10 favourites from the sale listed below or, alternatively, browse the entire catalogue in the Classic Driver Market
