115 Classic Cars to go under the hammer this month

Here’s your chance to bid for a classic car from over 115, estimated to be worth over €20 million, and who knows, you might be one of the lucky bidders to win the bid. A few highlights at the auction is a 1964 Jaguar E-Type, Series I, 3.8 Roadster (estimate €145,000-€160,000), 1969 Lotus Europa S2 (estimate €25,000-€35,000) as well as a stunning 1967 Lamborghini Miura SV, which is believed to go for as much as €1.5 million.

Conducted by the international auctioneers Coys, the company’s CEO, Chris Routledge, said of the event: “We are proud to return to Essen Techno Classica for another high-quality auction. This is one of the world’s most important historic motor car events and as the leading international auction brand in Germany, we have put together a multi-million euro offering some of the most beautiful cars ever built.”

This Bugatti T 44 Fiacres (pictured above)  is offered publicly for the first time since over four decades. COYS is delighted to present this very rare survivor of only a handful remaining Bugatti T 44 Fiacres today.

Other notable entries include a 1936 Brooke E.R.A. Monoposto with Brooklands and Grand Prix history, and a Lamborghini Miura SV that is one of the classics to be auctioned off, and that have all come from one important single owner collection inspired by legendary movies.

The 1967 Lamborghini Miura has gone through a complete restoration in 2008 and now features an Arancio orange finish and is SV-specified.

According to its historical past, the Miura was originally shipped to Portugal in 1967 as a new car, but eventually, it was converted to full SV specification in 1974 by the factory. Also, additional works to this Miura had since been completed by a Lamborghini specialist in the UK.

Going for between €1.1 million and and €1.5 million at the upcoming auction, this stunning example was deemed as a genre-defining supercar during its time in the 1960s. Moreover, the conversion process has been fully documented and the period correspondence and invoices are all included in the package.

The Techno Classica Essen auction will be held at Essen, Germany on March 24, with 115 classic cars worth more than €20 million to go under the hammer. Also, German cars are featured heavily in the catalogue for this event, emphasising on lots such as a “Gullwing” 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL estimated at €260,000 – €320,000, a 2011 Porsche 997 GT3 4.0 estimated at €370,000 – €430,000, a 1955 Porsche 356 Pre A Speedster 1600 Super engine estimated at €290,000 – €340,000, etc.
