A 1971 Lamborghini Miura once owned by rock legend Sir Rod Stewart was sold at Coys’ first Classic & Sports Car Show sale at London’s Alexandra Palace last weekend. It turned out that this Miura was the most valuable car of the exclusive auction event in London.
Another notable sale was the 1972 Maserati Ghibli 4.9 SS as shown below. It used to belong to U2 drummer Adam Clayton and sold for a world-record price of £303,000. Only eight right-hand drive examples were built of the 1972 Ghibli SS.
Another memorable highlight of last weekend’s Coys auction was the first registered Range Rover bringing in £93,000. The 1970 Range Rover was the 26th model to leave the factory, but the first to join the brand’s line up of 20 press launch cars.
Further headline sales were a right-hand drive 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GT E Series going under the hammer for £374,000 and a 1977 Ferrari 512 BB sold for £225,000.
Chris Routledge, CEO of Coys, said: “In combination with the very high quality features, displays and the amazing live parades on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, including original Grand Prix cars on the streets of London, the Coys auction was a very powerful addition to what was a dramatically improved Classic & Sports Car Show.”
Coys is now accepting entries for their upcoming auction on the 5th of December at the Royal Horticultural Society, Lindley Hall in Westminster, London.
