Type-R-charity

As you may be aware from our previous post on this, the very first production 2017 Honda Civic Type R to hit the Land of the Free was auctioned for charity. The results are in now, and the little hot hatch, something the majority of the Yanks don’t even like, managed to bring in the goodly sum of $200,000.

The auction took place on Bring a Trailer website which made it easier and more fun for people to bid. The sale price was remarkable when you consider that at the showroom the Type R costs under $40K. It was the noble cause behind this auction that drove the price up. All of the 200 grand proceeds from the sale of first American Honda Civic Type R will go to one of Honda’s favorite institutes to support, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

“We thought it would be fun to offer one lucky customer a shot at owning the first of its kind in America while benefitting the leading nonprofit solely dedicated to finding a cure for childhood brain tumors, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation,” said Jeff Conrad, Senior Vice President at American Honda Motor Co.

1983 Lamborghini Countach LP500S HR

Not that a run of the mill Lamborghini Countach isn’t special enough, but if you are spending big bucks to get one you might as well get one with an X factor. This 1983 Countach LP500S has just that. It is the proud holder of 12 British Outright Speed records and it can now be yours as it’s heading to Silverstone Auctions Race Retro Classic Car Sale this month.

Estimated between £325,000 to £350,000, the record holder 1983 Lamborghini Countach LP500S chassis number ‘12550’ has been recently repaired and restored, which is a good thing, because all those speed record attempts might not have been very gentle on it. The fixes include remedying minor mechanical ailments, new door glass and windscreen, tyres and battery, and last year it even got a full respray.

Speaking of the speed records, which is what makes this Lamborghini Countach that much more special than an ordinary one, they were set back in ’83 by racing driver Barry Robinson and his co-driver, Alex Postan, who took the car up to 180 mph at Millbrook test track. Included with the car is the history file included detailed invoices of works completed along with the MoT certificate, magazine articles, manuals and service records and information about the RAC Speed Records.

“To be offering a speed record Lamborghini at our Race Retro Sale is an absolute privilege, and it has not one but 12 British speed records,” comments Guy Lee-Milne, general manager and classic car specialist, Silverstone Auction. “This Countach has the performance, racing driver provenance and of course the icon, dramatic looks.”

1965 Ferrari 275 GTB Scaglietti-0

These days GTB Ferraris are better investments than gold and bonds and property. And that is why we reckon this awesome 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB Scaglietti will go for more than its estimate of €1,800,000 to €2,200,000 when RM Sotheby’s auctioneers drop the hammer on it at their February 8 event.

The soberly restored and maintained apple green 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB Scaglietti, one of only 250 examples ever built, boasts its original 3.3 liter SOHC triple Weber carb V12 engine with the original five-speed manual transaxle. It is Ferrari Classiche certified which means you can be sure fully independent coil-spring suspension with upper and lower wishbones, Koni tubular shock absorbers, and four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes and every other bit is in tiptop condition and as it was when the car first rolled off the production line.

But as always with these cars, it is the history that counts more than the features and even health of the item. Here’s the story of this Ferrari 275 GTB Scaglietti in brief as related by RM Sotheby’s:

Just one year after the initial debut of the 275 GTB, a second-series example was premiered with a slightly longer nose, a modification intended to help aid aerodynamic downforce at high speed. Despite the technical improvements, many enthusiasts prefer the first-series car’s proportions and purity of design, and early short-nose examples remain highly sought after by collectors, with only approximately 250 examples built.

Originally delivered to the official Ferrari dealer Rugico of Madrid, Spain, in 1965, chassis number 07341 was born as a short-nose 275 GTB, finished in the lovely and seldom-seen colour combination of Verde Pino (106-G-30) over a Beige (VM 3218) Connolly leather interior. By 1966, the car had been sold to a resident of Switzerland and was registered on Swiss license plates ‘GE 57243’, according to Ferrari historian Marcel Massini. It returned back to the factory on 6 May 1966, where it was serviced and its odometer was recorded as showing 10,755 kilometres from new.

While the majority of the car’s early history remains unknown, it was acquired by Joaquim Folch of Barcelona, Spain, in August of 1989. By this time, the 275 GTB had been refinished in red with a yellow stripe and was pictured in the book Collector’s Garage wearing this livery. The car remained in his ownership until at least 2006, when it was certified by Ferrari Classiche; shortly thereafter, the yellow stripe was removed and the car was repainted red throughout. After leaving Folch’s ownership, the car was sold to the United Kingdom, where it was returned to its original colour combination. The car is accompanied by a file that includes its certification binder from Ferrari Classiche, as well as a handful of service invoices from DK Engineering and Joe Macari.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB10 from SPECTRE Sells for £2.4M

Aston Martin DB10-auction

So as promised, Christie’s auctioned off one of the undamaged Aston Martin DB10 movie cars from the latest James Bond flick, SPECTRE. And, as expected, the car went for big bucks as the final gavel landed on an amazing bid of £2,434,500.

The auctioned Aston Martin DB10 was one of the eight cars produced for the movie and one of only two kept intact as show cars. So apart from the Bond connection, this thing is an utterly unique possession. Chances are Aston will never sell the other DB10, which makes this the only one in the world and its owner one happy dude.

The best part of last night’s Aston Martin DB10 auction was that all the proceeds from the sale of the car will go to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders), a global humanitarian aid organisation that provides medical care and support to victims of armed conflict, epidemics and other disasters.

Although it’s a V12 Vantage underneath, the DB10 comes with a completely bespoke body and interior, garnished with lots of 007 logos and hints, as if the looks weren’t unique enough. Hard-core Bond fans might be disappointed that the DB10 does not feature any special trick like machine guns or ejector seat, but we think this is a lot cooler.

PostHeaderIcon 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti Sells for Record $35.7 Million

Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti-0

This rather unattractive hunk of metal you see here is now one of the most expensive car ever sold, although it has ways to go before it reaches the $50+ million GTO models. The 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti was auctioned at Artcurial Motorcars Retromobile event for a cool $35,711,359.

At that kind of price, you would expect this car to have tons of pedigree, and of course, it doesn’t disappoint. Originally sold as a play thing to Pennsylvania architect Robert N. Dusek in 1960, the 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti has changed hands many times during its lifetime and also accomplished a lot.

Some of the most notable achievements of this 335 include a sixth place finish at Sebring 12 Hours, a second place finish at the Mille Miglia, a victory at Cuba Grand Prix in 1958, and a speed record at Le Mans 24 Hour averaging a lap speed of over 200 km/h.

This 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti proves that the collector cars market is hotter than ever as the bidding started on this car at $22.3 million. It is considered such a safe investment that somebody finally ended up paying 35 million for it, knowing that next year the car will be worth 45.

2004 Porsche Carrera GT-1

Of all the supercars launched in this century, and that includes the new flock of hyper cars, the Porsche Carrera GT is still one of the coolest and most desirable. So it’s quite an occasion every time one of these things becomes available for sale.

This 2004 Porsche Carrera GT in Silver Metallic with a black leather interior is going under the hammer later this month at Silverstone Auctions’ classic car sale at Race Retro. It has 18,018 miles on the clock, has been regularly serviced, and spent the best part of its life in America.

Naturally the GT is fully loaded with items like air-conditioning, CD player with Bose HiFi, Porsche Online Pro Satellite Navigation, adjustable steering column, electric windows, buckets seats, and carbon ceramic brakes with yellow calipers. This example also comes with a luggage set including a leather suit carrier, a leather briefcase bag and a leather day bag and a RUF suspension lift system.

Even though it’s well over a decade old and has a not-so-sophisticated manual gearbox and race-bred V10 engine, the Porsche Carrera GT can still hold its own against most of today’s million-horsepower hyper cars. It also delivers a much more engaging and thrilling driving experience than most. This GT is estimated at between £400,000 and £450,000.

PostHeaderIcon First 2017 Acura NSX Sells for $1.2 Million

Acura NSX-auction-1

Continuing the wonderful tradition of auctioning off the first production unit of their brand-new models for charity – first established by Detroit’s big three – Acura sent the very first NSX under the hammer. The 2017 Acura NSX VIN #001 fetched an amazing $1.2 million.

Auctioned by Barrett-Jackson who is the trusted auctioneer for this sort of jobs, the first production unit of 2017 Acura NSX was bought by no other than Rick Hendrick, the NASCAR guru and the owner of founder of the Hendrick Automotive Group.

It has become a habit of Hendrick’s – his favorite charity, if you like – buying the first units of every important new car launched in America. He has also bought the first Corvette Stingray and Z06 as well as the ZL1. All proceeds from the sale of the NSX will go to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Camp Southern Ground.

Those of you who are waiting for the 2017 Acura NSX to become available in the market, you don’t have to pay upwards of a million for it. The advanced hybrid super car will be available next spring from $156,000, going up to $205,700 for the range-topping version.

PostHeaderIcon Elton John’s Maserati Quattroporte Up for Auction

Elton John Maserati Quattroporte-0

The first-generation Maserati Quattroporte is now one of the cheapest super sport saloons money can buy that would still pass as a fun, classy, and cool car. There are plenty of them available in the second-hand market, but this one is going under the hammer soon because it’s a little bit more special.

This 2005 Maserati Quattroporte was once owned by Sir Elton John. That, we reckon, will attract as many people to this car as it put off. But it’s a fine example of the Quattroporte with only 28,000 miles on the clock and a long list of features including a rear DVD player and screen, games input, two headphones, remote control and six CD auto changer. It even has the original Maserati welcome letter, unused personal 24hr concierge members card, and personal gift of a matching leather covered key tray, tool kit, gloves and car cover.

To be sold at Classic Car Auctions’ (CCA) March sale, Elton John’s Maserati Quattroporte is estimated at between £15,000 and £17,000.

CCA classic car specialist, Arwel Richards, commented, “This is a wonderfully rare opportunity to buy an example of Italian exotica that goes like a rocket man. There’s something about the way this car looks at night, and the vendor should still be standing as he waves goodbye along the yellow brick road to the auction rostrum!”

First 2016 COPO Camaro-1

In another cool and commendable move, Chevrolet announced they will auction off the first production unit of the 2016 COPO Camaro turnkey drag racer for charity. The car goes under the hammer at  Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction on January 29 with all proceeds going to United Way.

United Way is the world’s largest privately-funded nonprofit with 1.6 million volunteers and 9.6 million donors worldwide. Their goal is to improve the quality of life by creating community solutions. They raise more than $5 billion each year.

The winning bid for the 2016 COPO Camaro, serial number 2016COPO001, will get one of the hottest turnkey dragster out there featuring Red Hot exterior color with Courtney Force-signature graphics and red-accented grille trim. The main features include a carbon fiber, high-rise bonnet, 350 racing engine with a Whipple 2.9-liter supercharger, chrome-moly roll cage, lightweight racing bucket seats personalized with the COPO logo and Courtney Force’s signature, five-point safety harnesses and a floor-mounted shifter for the THM-350 automatic transmission.

First 2016 COPO Camaro-2

“I was extremely honored to work with Chevrolet and help design the 2016 COPO Camaro,” said Courtney Force. “The bright red color and the signature slash marks towards the back on the car bring a part of my Traxxas Chevrolet Camaro Funny Car to the COPO Camaro, which I think is really cool. The proceeds from this car go to a great cause and benefit the United Way, so it’s an awesome project all around.”

Evo Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing

One of the sweetest items on RM Sotheby’s Paris Retromobile auction list is a gorgeous 1955 Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing, which is the automotive equivalent of Elvis Presley, only it gets more attractive with age and never disappoints its fans. In fact, it keeps getting better and more awesome as it puts on the years.

The guys at RM Sotheby’s were cool enough to let a journalist from Evo magazine get behind the wheel of this precious Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing for a quick spin before they send it under the hammer. Needless to say, you do not want to miss this:

Just to recap a fun little fact about Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing: the engineers first came up with the gullwing doors as a way to get around a practical issue. It wasn’t a style choice, but rather a change made out of necessity, since the car’s tubular frame wouldn’t allow for normal doors. So they just went ahead and put the hinges on the roof. And like that one of the biggest design icons of the twentieth century was born.

This 300 SL is estimated at around £1 million.

PostHeaderIcon Aston Martin DB10 to be Auctioned for Charity

Aston Martin DB10-auction-0

The exquisite Aston Martin DB10, as you know, was built was one purpose only, and that was to be driven into a river by James Bond in SPECTRE. After that Aston sent the car on a tour of the world, and now they want to auction it off.

It is for a good cause though, as all the proceeds from the sale of the DB10 – and they expect them to be over £1 million – will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières. To be auctioned by Christie’s on 18th February, the Aston Martin DB10 that goes under the hammer is one of the two “show” cars unmodified and used for display purposes, and it is signed by Daniel Craig.

Aston Martin DB10-auction-1

Aston Martin DB10-auction-3

Not that anybody bidding for this DB10 cares, but underneath that glorious carbon fiber skin, the car is a Vantage powered by a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The interior is bespoke to this model, and features fine luxury leathers, carbon fibre and aluminium, as well as various SPECTRE and James Bond plaques. But none of that matters. It could have a two-cylinder engine and people would still buy it, just because it’s a Bond car, and a bit because it has Craig’s signature on it.

PostHeaderIcon Jay Leno Auctions Off Harley-Davidson Ford F-150

Leno Harley-Davidson Ford F-150

As a celebrity car enthusiast, Jay Leno owns a huge number of one-offs and custom models built exclusively for him. There are so many of them that every once in a while Jay decides to auction one off for charity. This time it’s his custom 2000 Harley-Davidson Ford F-150 hitting the auction block.

The unique truck will go under the hammer at the 45th Anniversary Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale. All proceeds will go to National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the leading organization in helping people with MS as well as research, advocacy and education.

In case you’re interested and want to bid, Leno’s one-off Harley-Davidson Ford F-150 features a few exclusive highlights including a 360 horsepower supercharged 5.4-liter Triton V8 engine, monochrome black paint job with Harley-Davidson orange pin-striping and badging, 20-inch styled chrome wheels, and dual-outlet exhaust.

“This is an opportunity to own a truly unique vehicle from my personal collection,” said Leno. “Not only is this Harley-Davidson F-150 the only one of its kind, it’s providing much needed resources to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The next owner can feel good knowing that they’re getting an outstanding truck and supporting a great cause at the same time.”

PostHeaderIcon Auction Find: 1981 Lamborghini Countach 400S

1981 Lamborghini Countach-1

Lamborghini Countach is without a doubt one of the most desirable, and highly collectible, classic cars in the world. Amazingly though, the prices have not yet gone insane with this car and you can still pick one of these, like this one here, at auctions for a reasonable sum of money.

Granted, the estimate on this 1981 Lamborghini Countach 400S is between £200,000 and £250,000, and it’ll probably end up selling for more than that. But still, compared to similarly significant cars, especially contemporary Ferraris, it doesn’t sound that bad.

1981 Lamborghini Countach-2

Now, there are a few niggles, let’s say, about this Countach that might put off the hard-core collectors looking for perfection. It is one of only seven right-hand drive examples ever produced, and it has covered 61,155 km (38,221 miles). The Pearl Yellow exterior with Oatmeal Leather with a Black Suede dash top also may not be to everyone’s taste. And it’s said to be in just ‘good’ condition, not great. But hey, at the end of the day, it’s still a Countach!

1981 Lamborghini Countach-3

Commenting on the car ahead of the sale, Nick Whale, managing director of Silverstone Auctions, said: “The Lamborghini Countach is truly an iconic supercar and a car that every collector should take the opportunity to own at some point. This particular example is a fabulous piece of 1970’s road art and is worthy of consideration, especially as a low-mileage 1981 LP400S-Series III has recently changed hands in the International market for a substantial sum, and other LP400S’ appear to be changing hands for figures well in excess of our guide price here.”
