The vehicles will be auctioned by the classic car auction house COYS, being included in the True Greats sale, an event that will be held at the Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster on December 7th.
“This will be the biggest classic car auction in London this Christmas,” said the Managing Director of COYS, Chris Routledge. “We are seeing a lot of interest from investors in the City and elsewhere.”
Collectors will have the opportunity to choose between a wide range of vehicles that belong to brands who play in the elite segments of the automotive history. The list of four-wheele goodies includes a 1958 250 GT LWB Ferrari which is expected to fetch between GBP800,000 ($1.24 million or EUR954,000) and GBP1 million ($1.55 million or EUR1.19 million).
A 1930 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Tourer by Barker is expected to fetch GBP180,000 ($280,000 or EUR214,800) to GBP200,000 ($311,240) or EUR238,600). The Phantom was once owned by Katharine McCormik, the women who offered the financial support for the development of the birth control pill. She purchased the vehicle from Baker’s in South Audley Street.
“These are the ultimate Christmas presents,” Routledge added, “But they are Christmas presents that will go up in value and are excellent investments for the future which is why they are attracting interest from people in the City.”
