There’s European classics aplenty to be had in the Classic Car Auctions two-day sale with around 250 cars expected to cross the block on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 September.
European classics confirmed include a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE Coupe (W111), which has been owned for the past 28 years by recording artist Hugh Cornwell. Having undergone an in-depth bodywork restoration in 2002, it is superbly presented in Mercedes Red Metallic with a black leather interior and an estimate of £60,000 – £70,000.
Two Italian classics will be on offer, the first being a 1990 Ferrari 348 TB, one of just 130 right-hand drive, manual gearbox examples of the third generation V8 to reach the UK. Estimated at £40,000 – £50,000, it has covered less than 44,000 miles and is classically finished in Rosso Corsa over tan leather. Having been with its first owner until 2007, it has been maintained by both Maranello and DK Engineering and most recently serviced by H.R Owen.
The second Italian example is an original 1964 Fiat Abarth 595 which was imported from Italy and registered in the UK at the start of 2004. Finished in Bianco, it features original Abarth wheels, original engine components as well as the original steering wheel. Complete with its Italian number plates and a letter from the Automobile Club D’Italia confirming its Abarth status, it is estimated at £25,000 – £30,000.

A 1990 Porsche 911 (964) Carrera 4, finished in special order Tahoe Blue and a Linen leather interior, is also in the catalogue. Estimated at £25,000 – £30,000, it features optional extras from new and has covered less than 110,000 miles.
