Ex-Rod Stewart Lamborghini Miura sells for £909,000


A 1971 Lamborghini Miura originally owned by music legend Rod Stewart has sold at auction for £909,000 at Coy’s first Classic & Sports Car Show sale at Alexandra Palace. 

The P400S, which had been the subject of a £100,000 restoration and upgrade to SV specification, became the most valuable car to sell at the auction.

The Miura was followed closely by a 1964 Aston Martin DB5, which sold for £450,000. The car was largely original, with the exception of a colour change from Sierra Blue to California Sage Green, in keeping with its DB4GT Zagato sister car ‘2 VEV’. The car had spent 52 years with its original owner. 

A 1974 Ferrari 246GT confirmed continuing interest in the model after smashing its pre-sale upper estimate of £325,000 to eventually sell for £371,000. The fine looking Dino was fully rebuilt in the 1990s and represented a rare opportunity to secure one of just 498 right-hand-drive examples. 

One of the headline lots – the first registered Range Rover – fetched £80,000*. 

Classic & Sports Car group editor James Elliott said: “The Coys auction, our first sale at this show, was always destined to be the highlight of day two – and all eyes were on the ex-Rod Stewart Lamborghini. The atmosphere in the hall was electric as the hammer fell on lot after lot, while the Live Parades once again gave visitors a fantastic treat in the picturesque grounds of Alexandra Palace.”

 Away from the big money classics, a number of more affordable cars also got away. 

A 1987 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC with 150,000 miles on the clock and full service history sold for £7000*.

A 1973 Wolseley Six fetched £3000* and boasted an impressive history file and just two owners in the past 43 years. 

A highly original 1975 Mercedes-Benz 200D which had been cosseted by its two Italian owners sold for £5000*. The Maple Yellow classic was described as being rust-free. 

A Fiat 500 fetched £7000*, a Mercedes-Benz E320 £6500* and an Alfa Romeo Giulia £6000*.
