BCA’s second Future Classics Sale at BCA Nottingham on 15 March attracted a large crowd of buyers to bid on an eclectic mix of sportscars, family saloons, performance cars and prestige models covering nearly sixty years of motoring history.
The Future Classics Sale took place during Nottingham’s regular monthly Top Car Sale, which is staged on the third Thursday of every month and they are selling the sort of classics that Free Car Mag know, love and in some cases, actually own.
With the classic car market going from strength to strength, BCA offered a selection of cars ranging from 1950s saloons to more modern sporting, executive and luxury models. In keeping with a collectors market that attracts enthusiasts from every age group, vehicles ranged in value from a few hundred pounds to many thousands. All the cars on offer had one thing in common however – all had the potential to acquire classic status in the future.
The oldest car sold on the day was the 1960 Wolseley 6/99 Police Car, finished in black with just 15,000 miles recorded. This Wolseley sold for £8,400.
The 2005 Porsche 911 997 Carrera S Tiptronic S Convertible in grey was one of the top performers in the Future Classics sale, selling for £19,800 at 75,000 miles.
Performance Japanese cars always attract a lot of interest from buyers and the imported 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X GSR FQ-300 SST in blue sold for £10,600 at 48,000 miles.
When new, the 2002 Bentley Arnage R auto 6.8 had an on-the-road cost in excess of £175,000 and the cabin includes leather trim and wood veneer throughout. This nicely presented example in blue sold for £19,200.
Among the good value classics on offer, the 2002 BMW 540i Sport 4.4 auto in silver at 108,000 miles sold for £2,600 and the 2000 Rover Mini 1.3 Classic Cooper at 49,000 miles realised £6,400. The 2004 Mercedes SL500 5.0 Convertible in black at 73,000 miles also seemed good value at £5,300.
Stuart Pearson, managing director of BCA Remarketing, said, “Our Future Classics sale attracted a great deal of interest from trade buyers and private enthusiasts thanks to a sale catalogue that featured a great mix of classic and performance cars. We were delighted with the strong turnout of buyers and confident bidding on the day.”
