2013 Motorclassica on this weekend
Collector car auction at Motorclassica is set to be 'bigger than ever'...
Now into its 4th year, the Motorclassica Auction looks set to cause a stir yet again, continuing to offer spectacular cars to serious collectors from all around the country.
This year, Australia’s longest-established auction house, Theodore Bruce, will be conducting the event at an exclusive cocktail party on Saturday evening, the 26th of October.
Dress like Bond and carry your cheque book, because you’re not going to want to let some of these cars pass you by.
Taking pride of place, the 1968 Lamborghini Miura is expected to make a sale price in excess of $700,000. A fitting way celebrate 50 years of Lamborghini.
Not to be outdone by the modern competition, there are also 2 incredibly rare and highly original cars from 1913 on offer – a Hispano-Suiza Alfonso XIII Model T15 and a Nazzaro Tipo 2.
If you’re looking for a car with a pedigree, the auction also includes a 1949 Hunt Special, nicknamed the "Flying Bedstead", which was successfully raced by Reg Hunt.
There's also the Project 500 Jet Car from 1972, powered by a Rolls Royce jet engine, fully restored and auctioned with no reserve.
Motorclassica also announce the consignment of arguably Australia's most historically significant car and the oldest Holden in private ownership. Holden KJ-400 is the hand-shaped prototype of the car which would later be called the 48-215 and then became known as the FX Holden.
Whether you’re in the market for a rare or once-in-a-lifetime classic car, the 2013 Motorclassica Auction will certainly be a night to remember.
