1985 Holden Commodore VK race replica

Sold: $32,209
Graysonline

The next best thing to owning a racecar is owning the team showcar right? Used as a promo tool by the Mobil HDT, it's a clone of the VK Commodore, Brock’s first weapon in the Group A era, and it spawned his most famous road car, the Blue Meanie. Authentic in just about every detail, with a bit of work it could even become a track day car. Now that would be something.

 

1988 Ferrari Mondial 3.2 V8

Sold: $66,909
Graysonline

If you want the famous prancing horse badge on the nose of your car like Seb Vettel has on his, this midengined V8 Mondial represents an affordable entrée into this exclusive club. This Australian-delivered classic red with beige interior combo shows 20,629 on the clock and was sold with an owner’s manual and importantly a service history. It needs a little TLC to make it pristine once more, but what a lovely way to while away a Saturday in the shed before going for a fang.

 

1994 Acura NSX

Sold: $213,600

Honda's first supercar, the NSX, was partly developed by Ayrton Senna and sought-after when launched. Imagine stumbling across one with just 187 miles on it? The original owner has over 40 cars all in a climate-controlled facility and all with fewer than 500 miles on them. The Brooklands Green NSX is one of 34 in this colour.

 

1963 Studebaker Avanti R2 supercharged

Sold: $147,800
RM Sotheby's

The Studebaker Avanti wasn't a huge seller, making it scarce these days. This is a one-off Targa-roof version, as shown in the original Raymond Loewy designs but never put into production. Powering this R2 is a supercharged 289ci V8 bolted to an auto gearbox. It was sold new in December 1963 and has only had three owners since new. Air-con was fitted at the turn of the century and it was repainted in 2018.

 

1973 Jaguar E-Type V12 Series III

Sold: $163,809
Graysonline

This signal red Series III E-Type has to be close to the end of the production run of the famous feline. With a V12 under its long bonnet coupled to a manual gearbox, it has real squirt. It also has matching numbers and, according to the odometer, has travelled just 66,263 miles. The Jaguar Heritage Trust has traced its history to leaving the factory in November 1972 and it was sold with a service history.
