1906 Waverley

Historics at Brooklands saw not just some iconic classics, but two very special vintage cars change hands on Saturday, showing that electric cars are no new thing. In total over £3million pounds went under the hammer.

1952 Austin A90 Atlantic

The two vintage electric cars sold with strong prices, with a 1906 Waverley (top) going for £44,800 and a 1907 Victor finally going for £38,080.

1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia SS 1600

In total 136 different vehicles, across an amazing 47 marques and eleven decades, were offered, making it an extraordinarily varied classic car auction.
