Bellisimo! Stunning Italian Classics at Anglia Car Auctions’ April Sale

A mouth-watering selection.

There is a treat in store for fans of Italian classics when Anglia Car Auctions’ next sale of cars, motorcycles and automobilia takes place on Saturday 1 April and Sunday 2 April.

Amongst the tempting Italian Classics on offer are seven Alfa Romeos, including two Alfasuds – one from 1981 and another from 1983. Both are listed at no reserve. Also offered at no reserve is a 1979 Alfetta GTS that has been race prepared, or perhaps enthusiasts will be tempted by the pair of 1960 Giulietta Spiders. A restored example in eye-catching red carries an estimate of £48,000-£58,000.

The other Spider is a US car in Grigio Grafite which is in stunning condition and is estimated at £70,000-£80,000. Bidders might also be enticed by the affordable modern classic in the form of a 2000 Alfa Romeo Spider Twin Spark – it’s estimated at just £2000-£2500.

But there is more than just Alfa Romeos on offer. The 1951 Lancia Aurelia B10 is sure to attract a lot of attention thanks to the fact that it took part in the 1952 Mille Miglia. Driven by Umberto Maglioli, it won the Gran Turismo class and finished 19th overall.

There are picture and documents to support its sporting past and the car features a number of period upgrades including a 2.0-litre B21 engine. The Aurelia has only recently arrived in the UK and is not yet registered here. In ‘barn find’ condition, it does run but requires a full restoration and is estimated at £18,000-£22,000.

A little newer is the 1966 Autobianchi Bianchina, a charming little classic that has been used as a prop in Goodwood events. Unrestored but in good mechanical condition and with an interesting livery, it carries an estimate of £4000-£6000.

The final Italian machine to highlight is the 1967 Fiat 1100R Familiale. Thought to have been used by a vineyard near Turin, it features some interesting period extras and is believed to be the only example in the UK. Imported here in 2019 and subjected to a bare-metal respray and work on the mechanicals, it is estimated at £8000-£12,000.

ACA Owner Lyn George said: “Our forthcoming sale features a wide variety of vehicles, but we are very pleased to be able to include such a fascinating array of Italian Classics. From modern classics to something with motorsport pedigree, there is an offering to attract every enthusiast.”

On sale days, the gates open at 9am on both Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd April. Admission is currently free. Automobilia is offered from 10am and the cars from midday on each day.
