Well, they were doing their job and they got the results. I stand by my comment that the prices were very strong (I only consider the final price). Comparing prices directly to the peak froth of 2015 is generally specious but particularly so when considering certain cars that have traded obviously over the odds. This would include the likes of flat floor E Types, certain Ferrari’s, 300SL’s and non-RS 911’s amongst others. I’m happy to take a bet on softening interest in 993 Turbo’s.

They even managed to get the Swallow Doretti’s away at way over the odds!

Unsurprisingly the Miura did feature prominently....!

I tried to submit some plates and they were all turned down. So they’re not completely un-picky!

Good. There's already too many crappy plates on there.

If you read my post you’ll note that I said Collecting Cars had a 993 Turbo S fail to sell at £270k....which clearly implies that the market is still strong for these. I then said Silverstone achieved much lower prices....which was to my point about the auction not being that strong, I said nothing about overall market prices.

The last time someone offered me a bet to prove a point on something that would be impossible to prove was I think around when I was 15....

I see the white 991.1 CS GT3 failed to sell, in quite spectacular style by the looks of it. I think, as predicted by many, these are fast becoming the least sought after GT3 variant of all.
The red GT4 and the rather lovely looking Graphite blue 991.2 GT3 should be an interesting watch.

The white gt3 looked a good deal if the reserve had been met. I've been keeping an eye on CC for a while looking for something tasty but most cars go for strong money imo when you factor in the buyers fee/buying unseen and no warranty or comeback.

About right having regard to the colour.

The older red one didn't sell at £280k from memory, I don't keep an eye on car finance but wonder if conditions and availability will tighten thus having a knock on prices.

Thanks from bringing BaT to my attention. I now see what CC could have been (or could still be?). The presentation is very well done and there is lots to learn from the comments, even on past auctions.

Yesterday I was sorely tempted to bid on a S1 E-Type (which eventually didn't meet reserve) despite having never driven one in my life or ever really wanting one, it was simply gorgeous smile

I know this thread is in the Supercars section, sorry for the non-supercar content but you guys seem to know your stuff so I have a couple of questions:

-Is there a way to search BaT for cars being sold outside the US?

- How much will I have to pay to import a classic car from the US? After some internet research I think that import duty will zero if the car is a "genuine classic", and VAT reduced to 9% (of purchase price plus transport plus all port fees). Is that correct or does VAT depend which Euro country you import it to?

At risk of starting a political argument we are no longer in the EU so its not easy to comment on how your local taxes & rules relate to those of the UK but your principle seems sound

V-Spec whats BaT?

I looked into importing a car from California that was on sale at Hollywood Car Club and was surprised at the price (favourable) which included getting it here, taxed and sorting some headlight type issues.

BaT = Bring a Trailer, it was being discussed on this thread a few pages back (end of July)

Regarding import duty I'm in continental Europe, so yes I was asking about EU rules. Also means LHD is not a problem, which I'm hoping might help me pick up a bargain on CC wink

Do you mean Beverly Hills car club?
All their cars need work,but to be fair this is always reflected in the price you pay.
Have bought a couple from them.

That’s interesting. Yes - I feel fairly represented condition wise. Any hassles?
