Lambo heads the list, and HK ute surprises

This month's Shannons classic auction proved the local market is alive and well, while popping up the odd surprise.

 

1989 Lambourghini Countach.jpg

 

Top price went to a 25th anniversary edition Lamborghini Countach (lot 177), which fetched $490,500.

Highest Aussie bids went to a GT-HO and Monaro.

Meanwhile the Holden (lot 166) was an HK GTS 327 that went for $301,000.

However the biggest surprise came from a humble HK Holden Kingswood utility (lot 147), albeit in exceptional condition. Interest was strong and bidding went to $50,000.

Owners of European cars had a good night, with a host of strong results.

 

1971 Porsche 911E Sporto.jpg

 

 

Perhaps most notable was a 1971 Porsche 911E Sportmatic (lot 160), which sold for a dizzying $225,500.

 

1973 Citroen SM.jpg

 

Also getting plenty of interest was a nicely-presented right-hand-drive Citroen SM (lot 159) which fetched $146,000.

 

1970 Morris Mini Cooper S SYD.jpg

 

The British weren't left out. A 1970 Morris Mini Cooper S (lot 140) went for $80,500.

 

1991 Nissan Skyline R32 GTR.jpg

 

Collector interest in Nissan R32 GT-R Skylines has seen their prices move rapidly, as evidenced by lot 187, a 1991 Australian-delivered car that fetched $91,000.

 

1980 CHRYSLER CM VALIANT.jpg

 

There were also some very solid buys on the night. A 1980 CM Valiant in exceptional shape went for $38,000 – substantial money but good value compared to the cost of a restoration. 

 

1998 Pontiac Formula V8.jpg

 

Our pick for bang-for-your-buck was lot 121, a 1993 Pontiac Firebird that went for $14,000.
