Mistletoe and more

A few weeks back, Team Bentely Spotting posted about a 1980 Rolls-Royce Camargue being offered at the Anglia Car Auction on 22nd August:



The auction results have now been posted and it sold for GBP 32,025 inclusive of buyers premium.

This is at the low end of the GBP 32,000-36,000 guide price.

A disappointing price? At first it may seem so...

But this car also traded at an H&H auction in October 2010 when it fetched just GBP 15,400: http://www.classic-auctions.com/Auctions/01-10-2010-ThePavilionGardens-1260/1980Rolls-RoyceCamargue-32082.aspx

So this car has actually doubled in value during the past five years.

Perhaps proof that the Camargue is now a bonafide classic...

Other interesting cars offered at the auction include a 1970 Mulliner Park Ward Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 2-door:


Offered in "barn find" condition for restoration it failed to find a buyer at the GBP 10-12,000 guide price.

And this 1986 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit with MOT until Jan 2016 sold for just GBP 2,205 after being offered wih no reserve:


It must be worth at least the same as parts.
