Our 10 favourites from Auctionata's Classic Cars sale
On 22 April, 40 classics to suit every budget will go under the hammer at Auctionata’s online-only Classic Cars 499 sale. Aside from the nine Porsche 911s, handful of Ferraris and smattering of pre-2000 Mercedes-Benzes, we particularly like the Le Mans Blue 1971 Alfa Romeo Montreal. An early (and remarkably original) example built in the prototype period of the model’s life, it’s estimated to fetch 80,000 euros.
For the gentleman racer, the duo of racing V8-powered Ferraris might be of interest. The 1995 355 Challenge (est. 220,000 euros) is one of just 79 produced, while the later 2006 F430 GT3 (100,000 euros) was driven by Ferrari’s long-time test and development driver Marc Gene, leading us to believe the car will be rather well set up.
Showing just 20,000 miles on the clock, the 1998 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante deserves a mention. It might have a questionable bodykit and set of wheels, but its minimal use shows in the very well-presented interior and clearly cared-for bodywork. It’s estimated at 45,000 euros. You can find the entire catalogue for the sale listed in the Classic Driver Market.
