Ferrari 308 set to shine at Esher Hall

| 26 Oct 2012

A 1981 Ferrari 308 adds a dose of glamour to Barons' Sandown Park sale on 29 October.

It was restored some years ago, but remains in excellent condition and comes with a photographic record of the work. The car had a new cambelt fitted 700 miles ago and has covered just over 50,000 miles. It’s estimated to sell for around £30,000.

For about the same outlay (£25,500-28,000), you could have a GT car from Maranello. The ’02 456 offers near-200mph performance combined with 2+2 ‘practicality’ and a wonderful Pininfarina-styled body. Reassuringly, it also has a full main-dealer service history.

Meanwhile, this right-hand-drive Fiat 500 from ’65 was supplied new to its first owner in Aberdeen and has only 35,000 miles on its centrally located speedo. It has spent its recent life as part of a small private collection and is estimated to make £7500-9000.

Brits are out in force, too, with Jaguar having a particularly strong presence in the form of two E-types, a Series 1 and a Series 3 (above), estimated to make £37-40,000 and £18-22,000 respectively. They are joined by a 1976 XJ6 saloon (£5-7000) and a 1977 XJC (£6-8000).

Small sports cars also abound, with everything from a 1978 MG Midget (£1800-2700) to a 1973 Triumph TR6 (£5-7000) and a Mk1 Toyota MR2 (£1500-2250).

Finally, a 1994 Range Rover, which was owned by Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, offers something completely different for £4-5000.
