1990s classic cars star at April CCA sale

1990s classic cars star at April CCA sale Classic and Performance Car

Classic Car Auctions’ April 2015 sale sees a number of 1990s classics go under the hammer

The new auction house’s second Silverstone sale on 21 April will see a great selection of affordable classics go under the hammer, with a significant number of emerging 1990s classics expected to sell. Here are our top choices from the 1990s:

Fiat Barchetta

1997 Fiat Barchetta - No reserve

With a particularly honest description and evaluation, there’s something quite endearing about this little roadster. This example was bought new in Germany, and recently imported to the UK during 2014. With 120,000km on the clock, this Barchetta has a few cosmetic issues, including paint discolouration, some rust on the rear quarter panel seams and a damaged hood. Still, this little Fiat will be an absolute hoot to drive, and is offered with no reserve.

BMW 850i

1992 BMW 850i - £8000-£10,000

I’ve said it before, and will probably say it again: When looking at the BMW 8-Series, the V8 840i models are the smart and sensible choice. Having said that, buying an 850i does mean you’ll have the kudos of owning a V12-engined car – an opportunity that’s becoming rarer by the day. This 850i is a particularly well-specced example too, with a whole host of optional electrical goodies but the most appealing aspect is the incredibly rare manual gearbox.

Porsche 968

1994 Porsche 968 Sport - £8500-£10,000

Built exclusively for the UK market, the 968 Sport offered a version of the highly-regarded ClubSport model, with a more luxurious specification. This includes electric windows and other equipment, as well as comfort seats. This well maintained example comes with an extensive history file, and has worn its 140,000 miles pretty well.

Renault Clio Williams 1

1994 Renault Clio Williams 1 - £4500-£6000

The original Renault Clio Williams 1 is a truly fantastic driving machine, and it was recently crowned best hot hatch of the 1990s by evo Magazine. This early example, number 055 off the line, has covered 78,500 miles from new and is in good solid original condition. Garaged all its life, the Sports Blue paint and correct gold Speedline alloys still set this wide-hipped Clio off a treat.

Mercedes-Benz SL500

1994 Mercedes-Benz SL500 R129 - £6000-£7000

Offering outstanding value for any years, the Mercedes R129-generation SL is beginning to look like a very sound buy. This top of the range SL500 features the super-smooth 32-valve V8 engine, and is offered in top condition. The 70,200 miles shown on the clock is backed up by a comprehensive main dealer and specialist service history, which is absolutely key to success when buying an R129.
