Historics at Brooklands is serving up a tasty modern classic recipe

Among the 163 cars Historics at Brooklands will offer at its September sale on Saturday, there is a fantastic selection of modern classics ranging from the affordable to the downright exotic. We’d be hard pushed not to raise our paddle for these 10 cars…

At Historics at Brooklands’ forthcoming sale on 22 September, there’s a raft of 1990s and 2000s collector cars, many of which offer real bang-for-buck and each with its own different charm and appeal. Whether it’s the all-boxes-ticked 2000 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG estimated at just £8,000–12,000 or the sultry Bianco Madreperla 2009 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione Spider that’s expected to fetch £175,000–200,000, there’s a car to cater to the next-generation car collector’s every taste. 

As you know, we’re strong advocates of the Make Green Great Again movement here at Classic Driver, so two cars stood out to us in particular. On the more affordable end of the scale, there’s the Verde Mexico 2001 Maserati 3200 GT (est. 10,000–14,000), equipped with the essential boomerang rear lights, while at the steeper end, we fell for the metallic dark green 2002 Ferrari 575M, which is fitted with the vital Fiorano Handling Pack. The elegant and low-mileage Grand Tourer is expected to sell for £95,000–105,000.
