Market Finds – From farmer to charmer
In fields like these
Only the Italians could build a desirable work vehicle. This not-so-raging 1960s bull is too nice to be put to work, but would rather make for a quirky addition to any Lamborghini enthusiast’s collection. Just try and resist the temptation to paint it lime green…
What could possibly be better than a 1950s Vespa? One that’s been modified to be raced, of course. This example was restored as a replica of the rare ‘Six Days’ model built for regularity racing in the early 1950s and features a tuned 125cc engine, ideal for spirited runs to the local piazza.
Formula 1 of 40
One of only 40 produced, this 599 GTB ‘60 F1’ edition celebrates a brighter time at Ferrari, when Formula 1 wins were a regular occurrence. Questionable Fernando Alonso-inspired livery aside, this single-owner example currently for sale at Classic Driver dealer Samuel Laurence is significantly rarer than a 599 GTO. Whether values will head in the same, skyward direction is another question altogether.
Estate of mind
With 1970s Mercedes’ now the favoured choice of the hipster elite, this W115 wagon currently for sale in Portugal is the ideal vehicle in which to carry several of your bearded companions in comfort, complete with period luggage for craft beer, film cameras and other such essentials.
Not only a desirable X-Pack model but also the very car used to develop the performance package, this 1985 V8 Vantage stands above countless others as a piece of Aston history. While you might not be the only V8 driver on the King’s Road thanks to the increased desirability of these hand-built models, you’ll certainly be the one with the most pedigree.
