Market Finds – The Classic Driver World Service

Just because it’s Christmas doesn’t mean the Classic Driver Market slows down. In fact, this week’s Market Finds selection is arguably one of the most diverse yet, featuring everything from an unusual American supercar to a feisty Italian hot hatch…

Shark attack

A former Pebble Beach class winner, this extraordinarily rare American Motors AMX/3 was built primarily to compete with supercars from the likes of Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini. At Monza in 1970, this particular shark-nosed brute was clocked at 170mph – an impressive feat at the time, even compared to its more established Italian rivals. 

Kermit the Turbo

In the 1970s, standing out from the crowd was imperative. In a bid to do just that, the original owner of this 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo had it painted ‘Vipergreen Diamond’ with a green interior – a specification that works much better than you might think.

Uno mas

If you thought the Italians were only good at building full-fat supercars, you’d be wrong. This Fiat Uno Turbo IE might be relatively unknown in the world of hot hatches, but the Italian pocket rocket is certainly one of the most charming cars to grab by the scruff of the neck. 

Aerodynamic American

Displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in period, this Ferrari 400 Superamerica is one of just 13 Series 1 Short Wheelbase Aerodynamico Coupés ever built, and therefore towards the top of most Prancing Horse collectors’ wish lists. 

Black Betty

One of the most sought-after BMWs of recent years, the stripped-out M4 GTS capitalises on the burgeoning demand for limited edition track-day specials from major manufacturers. While 700 examples were built in total, just 30 were right-hand drive, of which this is one. Coincidentally, your wallet will be significantly lighter considering the premium over list price. 

The Classic Driver Market showcases thousands of classic and collector cars for sale, with more added on a daily basis. You can also find a selection of classic motorcycles for sale, as well as yachtswatchescollectables and even luxury properties.
