Classics to Watch at COYS Ascot Auction

1964 Gordon Keeble

COYS return to the famous Ascot racecourse with more than 50 classic and sports cars going under the hammer at their long-established auction on Saturday 16th April. However, here are a few that really stand out.

1964 Gordon Keeble (top): This car is one of only 99 built. It underwent a £100,000 restoration, has been recently presented at the Cartier and Goodwood concourse and is offered with FIVA papers. Estimated at £70,000 to £80,000.

1959 Jaguar XK150 RHD (below): With only 39,000 miles from new, this exceptional XK150 must have one of the best documented histories of any Jaguar sold by COYS in a long time. Estimated at £100,000 to £120,000.

1985 Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV (below): One of just 610 QVs produced and one of 350 with 6 Weber Carburetors. This car is in excellent condition throughout and arguably is ‘the’ poster car of the last 40 years. Estimated at £320,000 to £380,000.

Estimated at £130,000 to £160,000.
