What’s new at Coys auctions and when is the next lot due?
Although it seems like just yesterday that the last Coys auctions took place, the next one is upon us very soon. So far, the date has been confirmed to be on the 2nd of July 2016 and subsequent auctions are to be confirmed. One thing that we can count on though is that the line up of classic cars is set to be as dazzling as the last time when one of the few remaining Mclaren F1s went through the book. I even managed to pic a car up myself last time and added a vintage Rolls Royce to my collection which I am more than pleased with.
This month’s Coys will take place at Blenheim Palace, one of the more extravagant locations I think anyone would agree. The palace has huge grounds for exhibiting some of the classic cars on offer too, so you can sure it will make for a fantastic day out even if you aren’t bidding on anything at auction! These auctions are usually all day affairs too which means that no doubt there will be catering and refreshments available at the actual event itself.
What cars do Coys auctions have on offer this time
This type of information is readily available on the Coys website itself under the ‘lot list’, fortunately they’ve made it easy to see what’s being sold in the forthcoming Coys auctions. Some highlights for myself include a vintage Alpha Romeo 1750 which even though it is more than 30 years old now, still looks to be in incredible driving condition. I’ve certainly never seen one of these cars in the flesh before so it should make for an exciting event.
Other car highlights include a 1988 vintage Maserati in a shocking white colour. I’ve previously had the good fortune to drive in one of these cars and I found that they still outperform many road cars from today, this will definitely be a lot to watch at the auction.
