Historics, November sale report

From a Maharaja state carriage to a Bugatti Type 35 with more original parts than most: Historics keeps showing its propensity for quirky vehicles

Historics, November sale report

Historics’ headliners were more exotic than the usual Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martins. The Queen’s Land Rover, put up for sale by the MoD, sold for £28,380 (with commission). The oldest vehicle on offer, a 1825 Indian State Carriage from the Maharaja of Mysore, sold for a conservative £78,400 (with commission) against an estimate of £70k-£100k.

A provisional £170k offer might buy the 1933 Bugatti Type 35 ‘Reformation’, which, although not entirely a Type 35, probably boasts more original parts than the real racers of the 1930s. There seems to be a trend towards a better appreciation of these once-called ‘replicas’.

Historics does Aston Martin DB5s very well, with a 1965 DB5 selling for £206k and a 1965 Coupé for £254k. Neither world-record prices, but comfortably within estimates. The auction house sold another DB5 at its last sale for £336k, the fourth most expensive of the year.

Two years ago, internet bidding only accounted for around 10% of overall sales, this time some £600k was traded in cyberspace - almost a third of the overall sales total, at £1,687,624. Historics closes its 2012 books with £5.5m worth of sales.
