The auction scene continues to bustle along. Here are some of the highlights...

1985 HDT VK Blue Meanie

Sold: $1.057M
Grays Auctions

THIS 1985 Holden/HDT VK Blue Meanie was not only developed and built by Peter Brock and his HDT organisation, it was also driven daily by the maestro and wears build #05. In original and unrestored condition it was owned by the family Brock sold the car to and has travelled 77,539km. The seat, pedals, and steering wheel that Brock played with have given this this car unique provenance.


1974 Leyland Force 7V

No sale: $100,209
Grays Auctions


WHEN LEYLAND upped stumps and left Australia just 10 Force 7s were spared the crusher. This V8 powered unit was the company engineering and development hack and was sold with company log books, service history, company car pass and instructions to the driver outlining it’s a development car if pulled over by the cops.It has 28,751km showing and been with the vendor since 1990.


1995 Lancia Delta HF Evo 2 'Edizione Finale'

Sold: A$400,000


ONE OWNER and 5400kms on the clock. It's number 92 of 250 made and this rarest of all Integrales is considered the pinnacle.

Painted Bordeaux Red it has Recaro seats, 16" Speedline wheels, carbon-fibre trim, aluminium pedals and passenger footrest, a Momo steering wheel, upgraded engine-management to 250bhp. It was delivered new to Japan in 1995 and has been with its owner since, now in the UK. A real collector piece.


1972 Holden Torana LJ GTR XU-1

Sold: $325,000
Burns & Co


PRICES CURRENTLY being paid for some cars seem removed from reality and one assumes cars like this 1972 LJ GTR XU-1 Torana are being bought by collectors and not speculators. This one appears to be in excellent condition with just 24,847 miles on the clock. Finished in red with black trim it sold with a comprehensive documentation from the original owner, an airline pilot. His job meant the Torana spent a lot of time locked in an airport hangar.
