1982 Porsche 930 Turbo

Sold: $190,000
Shannons

We all know the 911 is the cornerstone of Porsche and the 930 Turbo was the embodiment of the model when launched. A genuine supercar, this gleaming white example has been mechanically refurbished to the tune of $50,000 over the past four years. Offered with no reserve and with service books it was no wonder the bidding was keen to grab an iconic 80s supercar.

1999 Honda VTi-R Integra coupe

Sold: $9000
Shannons

A DC2 Integra recently sold in the states for an eye-popping AUD$88,000 and while this one isn’t the fabled sport model, the VTi/R is still sporty enough and a fun thing to punt. You’ll be hard pressed to find better than this one-owner, always garaged example, with 110,000kms on the clock and full history.

Grand Prix white paintwork is complemented with grey cloth interior and it has a glass sunroof. The original Honda alloys come with the car. It truly is a great collection starter.

 

1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL convertible

Sold: $41,000
Shannons

The 107-series two-door is becoming a collectors' favourite. At today's prices they are a bargain that won’t last. This Aussie delivered 380SL was sold new by York Motors in Sydney. The chrome wheel arch trims set off the red coachwork superbly and for rainy days it comes with a matching hardtop. What a brilliant weekend cruiser and bargain-basement buy.

1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda

Sold: $305,500
Mecum

Love a bit of 'Cuda muscle and this pearler has undergone a full rotisserie restoration to Concours standard. It is listed in the Chrysler Registry and is powered by a brawny 426/425hp Hemi with 4-barrel carbs and 727 auto transmission. It also has the shaker bonnet package. Inside are a full spread of gauges, rim blow steering wheel and a six-way adjustable driver’s chair. Outside it wears rare Elastomeric front and rear bumpers and is finished in Rallye Red.

1962 Citroen 2CV Sahara

Coming up:
Bonhams Les Grandes Marques Du Monde au Grand Palais, Paris
February 2019
Estimate: AU$130,00-170,000

One of the most interesting 2CV Citroens has to be the Sahara; a twin-engined model produced from 1960 to 1968. It is actually a four-wheel drive with one engine for the front wheels and the other for the rear wheels. Each engine operates independently and its two gearboxes operate simultaneously from one gear lever. Twin fuel tanks are mounted under the front seats with the spare wheel bolted to the bonnet. That is the easiest way to spot one. Only 694 were made and they were double the price of the conventional (?!) 2CV. It is believed only a handful of runners are left.
