Lotus Cortina Makes UK Record Price at Barons Auction

Thu, 29 Oct 2009
A magnificent MkI Lotus Cortina Aeroflow drove well over estimate to sell for an impressive £37,364 at Barons at Sandown Park on October 27th. It attracted bids from as far away as Australia, before being sold to a British buyer in the hall.The price achieved is a UK auction record for a non-competition MKI and is just £2,000 behind that achieved in 2003 for an ex-factory, Jim Clark owned car.

Another car that performed particularly well at this very busy sale was a beautiful 1971 Jaguar E-type S3 roadster, which sold for £39,037, despite having automatic transmission.

At the same sale a record-breaking £9,600 was achieved for a quite outstanding 1977 Ford Granada Ghia, while ‘Humphrey’, the Morris Minor Traveller that has starred in the BBC CBeebies television series Gigglebiz sold for £3,356.

“There was a great atmosphere in the hall, resulting in an 84% sales rate," said Barons’ MD Laurence Sayers-Gillan.

“We were delighted with the intense bidding and the fantastic prices achieved for the Lotus Cortina and E-Type. We were equally thrilled with the record-breaking price achieved for what must surely be the best Ford Granada Ghia in the world. This further demonstrates that we can achieve top prices for excellent examples of any marque.”

“We now look forward to our traditional Yuletide Classic sale on December 8th, which usually sees the year end on a high. This year’s sale will be the last of our ‘mixed’ auctions, as, with the introduction of our new ‘Top Car’ division for contemporary cars in 2010, we will no longer be featuring cars not considered to be classic in our Historic, Classic and Collectors sales.”

The Top Car sales will be available to vendors of more modern Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Aston Martin, Mercedes and Jaguar cars and other prestigious and thoroughbred marques
