Porsche collection pushes ACA past £1m

| 27 Aug 2013

A fascinating collection of 'barn-find' Porsches helped Anglia Car Auctions set a record £1.25million total at its 24 August sale in King's Lynn, Norfolk.

Over 90% of the first batch of 26 cars from a private collection of Stuttgart greats sold, contributing nearly half the sale total, with the top sellers being a 1959 356B Roadster and a 1963 356 Super 90 Cabriolet at £61,950 each.

At the other end of the spectrum, the cheapest Porsche was a 1965 911 LHD rolling shell at £7140, still pipping its £5k estimate.

Other strong sellers at the auction, which achieved a 70% sale rate for its 167 lots, included a 1968 Mercedes 'Pagoda' at £44,100 and a 1971 Jaguar E-type S2 roadster at £46,200.

Continuing the upward trend for Daimler Darts, a project SP250 changed hands for £12,390.
