Those of you who are considering buying a classic car may be interested to hear that the Bonhams Goodwood Members’ Meeting auction of classic vehicles is to take place on the 7th April 2019. Below, we mention a number of the cars that are being offered for sale but you may wish to take a look on Bonhams website for a full list.
If you fancy owing a classic car that has previously been in the possession of a star then how about a 1974 Ferrari GT4 Berlinetta Boxer whose first owner was no less than Sir Elton John. This is an extremely rare car as it is one of just 58 that were manufactured for the market here in the UK. This particular vehicle has a very low mileage at 9,700 making it even more appealing. Its 4.4 litre engine produced 360bhp and it was capable of powering to a top speed of circa 175mph. The bodywork is in a lovely red and black and certainly catches the eye. In 2012 it had a major service. It has an estimated sale price of £250,000 to £300,000.
If you are looking for something a little more regal then why not take a look at a 1929 Bentley 4 and ½ litre Tourer. It has been in the same family ownership for an incredible 80 years which is rare these days. It is said to have been well maintained. This open-topped luxury classic car would certainly look the part on a lovely, sunny summer’s afternoon with the roof down. Only 662 cars were manufactured making it rather rare. This is being offered for sale at between £600,000 to £800,000.
If you are a fan of the Aston Martin then how about a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 Sports Saloon to Vantage specification. This is quite a rare vehicle with only 1,021 being manufactured. It has had an awful lot of money spent on its restoration with invoices of £340,000 being available. Its bodywork is in Sierra Blue. It has a 4 litre engine producing 282bhp making it very powerful. It has 4 seats so can be used by a family who appreciate driving around in an iconic vehicle. It has an estimated sale price of £580,000 to £660,000.
A wonderful looking 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SC Coupe is being offered for sale at the above auction and will probably attract a lot of attention. It is one of only 200 that were manufactured. The bodywork is in a lovely red. It has a tan leather interior. It was capable of getting from 0 to 62mph in about 13 seconds and had a top speed of in the region of 112mph. It has an estimated sale price of £400,000 to £500,000.
