Recent auction highlights from around the world...

1986 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

Sold: $116,800
Shannons

The Ford Sierra Cosworth was THE touring car of the 80s with one giving our own John Bowe a couple of Bathurst wins. A wickedly fast, monstrously winged road warrior, it was the fastest British production Ford since the GT40. This is the homologation special with full history and sourced from the UK a decade ago. It shows 36,345 miles on the clock and is guaranteed to provide a huge bang for your buck.

 

1964 Holden EH Premier sedan

Sold: $63,500
Shannons

The EH is considered one of the best to wear the Holden badge. It came with a new engine, the red motor. This one has a refurbed 179ci. Inside are bucket seats and a centre console. This three-owner Valley Mist Green metallic with a white roof Premier is in good condition for its age Factory options fitted are a steel sun visor, mud flaps and a rear window venetian.

 

2005 Maserati Quattroporte

Sold: $64,350
The Market UK

Styled by Pininfarina, this was originally owned by a bloke called Reg Dwight, who many know as Sir Elton John. This Maserati Quattroporte was one of his chariots, in a vast collection, for a while. The Rocket Man disposed of it in 2016 and it has hardly turned a wheel since. With many Massas named after wind, it's ironic the man who sang Candle In The Wind, selected this model and it goes like a rocket…man.

 

1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL convertible

Sold: $51,000
Shannons

Replacing the lauded Pagoda SL was no easy task but the R107 achieved high praise and stayed in production for 18 years. Powering this classic SL is a 3.8lt V8 bolted to a four-slot auto that, since 1985 when it was delivered in Australia has covered just 93,059km. Finished in Thistle Green metallic with dark green leather trim, it has been enjoyed and cared for by its previous owners. It sold with a set of original factory books.

 

On the block:

1966 Lancia Fulvia Coupe 1.2HF

RM Sotheby's Amelia Island auction
Offered without reserve
May 22, 2021

Here's one of 435 Lancia Fulvia HF coupe homologation specials and restored to factory-appropriate Amaranto Montebello (Red). It still has its lightweight bonnet and boot, doors and rear windows. It's finished off with larger wheel arches and Cromodora alloy wheels and inside, a Nardi wood steering wheel. Although 500 were required for Group 3 competition, this included sufficient spares to make up for cars not completed, hence the 435 actually made. If you want an Italian love affair, this could be the perfect one.
