MERCEDES AND MASERATI
93 percent sales rate, great prices at the Classic Cars auction on 23 June at Dorotheum Vienna-Vösendorf

(27.06.2018)

Classic cars and modern-era classic vehicles drive at fast speed - the numerous bidding contests took a long time in the crowded hall and on the telephone at the Dorotheum Classic Cars auction at the Motor Vehicles and Technology Centre in Vösendorf on 23 June:
Most of the 103 vehicles on offer changed hands, first and foremost the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster from 1960. This legendary car, in unrestored condition, was purchased by a classic car enthusiast on the phone for 899,000 euros.
 
The rare black 1966 Maserati Mistral Spyder 3700, for which two bidders in the room fought for many minutes, rightly reaped applause and was knocked down for an outstanding 663,800 euros.
 
The auction bell for the 1947 Mille Miglia winner, the 1938 Lancia Aprilia Spider Touring, rang at the 350,200 euro level. The BMW 327/28 sports cabriolet from 1939 was knocked down at a sensational 294,200 euros, far exceeding expectations.
 
Top prices include: 260,600 euros for the 2011 Porsche 997 Speedster (no 333 of 356), 103,500 euros for the 1960 Jaguar XK Roadster, 143,000 euros for the reconstruction of a 1931 Pur Sang Bugatti Type 51. And the sale of a 1975 Renault Alpine (€ 66,700) was sealed with a kiss in the auction room.
