Zagato replica leads Brooklands sale

0

A replica of Zagato's famous take on Aston Martin's DB4GT headlined Historics £551,479 summer sale when it made £151,500 on 19 July.

The Shapecraft creation was joined by another tribute - a 1980 Porsche 924 Turbo Carrera tribute (below) that just cracked its £4000-6000 estimate at £4592 while a real Zagato - a 1973 Alfa Romeo GT1600 Junior made £12,650 - £2000 above top estimate.

Also from the same year was a Jaguar E-type V12 Series III Roadster with just 5,288 miles on the odometer since a total restoration. It sold for a just-inside-guide-price of £37,950. Another sports car to come in under its (reasonable) £22-26,880 estimate was a 1967 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda at £26,880 while its predecessor, a 1960 190SL (below) - in desirable right-hand drive form, sold for £47,025.

There was more on the Alfa Romeo front with a 1964 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider (below). Painstakingly restored over three years by the vendor, it made £30,800.

Other sale highlights included a tuned 1965 Commer Cob van (£4,400) and a 1954 Standard Vanguard pick-up (below) that made £12,650 - both spot on for this year's Revival car park!

But the sale's most standout lot had to be the outrageous 1967 Pontiac GTO ‘Monkeemobile 2011 Tour Car’. Based on a pukka 1966 GTO, it was specially produced for the recent 45th anniversary 2011 UK tour by the legendary US band, The Monkees and made a strong £75,900.

Historics' next sale is on 22 October. Call 0800 988 3838 or see www.historics.co.uk for more.
