Norfolk auction promises the antidote to Scottsdale frenzy

| 23 Jan 2013

After a week of Arizona’s mega-money lots, Anglia Car Auctions promises a rather more affordable distraction in King’s Lynn on 26 January.

As with Scottsdale, the sale is likely to be led by a blue Ferrari, although this time it is a 1980 308GTB valued at £25-30,000 – not a 1958 250GT California Spider with a hammer price of more than £5million.

The car offered by Anglia has been subject to a recent restoration, has covered 87,000 miles and is MoT’d until August.

For Porsche fans that can’t rise to £2million for a 1959 718RSK Roadster, the sale offers open-top fun from Stuttgart in the form of a 1979 911SC Targa.

It is showing 153,000 miles on the clock, but has been subject to an engine rebuild and could be yours for just £8-10,000.

A 1972 BMW 3.0CSL may not have the kudos of the Batmobile offered by Russo and Steele (nor does it have the price tag), but it runs, comes with an extensive history and will likely sell for £11-15,000.

More performance classics up for grabs include a 1993 Lotus Carlton that comes with a year’s ticket and looks extremely tempting at £9500-11,000 and a 1986 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth, which should cross the block for £9500-£10,500. The latter comes complete with a lengthy history.

Finally, while one deep-pocketed Scottsdale bidder netted a 1969 Corvette L88 Roadster for a bewildering £520k, this 1975 L82 is estimated to make a fraction of that at £8750-£11,000.
