Coys – Techno Classica Essen 2015 preview

By Edward Legge | Classic car auctions & analysis | 0 Comments

This year’s show has a number of interesting cars. There are a number of  racebred, lightweight nineties Porsches as well as a relatively leggy 959 and some early(ish) 911s. The Porsche market is beginning to split up with modern cars now overhauling the older cars in terms of value so we should get an indication of how the continent feels about these cars.

The sale is relatively light on Ferraris (which are so important in terms of making up the percentages) although there is a gold 250 GTE with red leather(!) and only two owners. There are two  Maseratis to choose from – a Sebring and a Ghibli SS spyder – and a brace of De Tomaso Panteras.

It will be interesting to see how the BMW M1 performs given recent high profile sales. Modern cars are now regularly making appearances at classic auctions and there is a 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and a 2013 Evanta DB4 GT for sale. Recreations (although the Evanta isn’t really a recreation) have had mixed fortunes in auctions recently and as manufacturers become more belligerent when it comes to protecting their brands and designs we may see the values of recreations suffering because of it.

Coys normally lag a little way behind Bonhams and RM Sotheby’s in terms of percentage of cars sold and prices achieved – let’s see how they fare as we come into the peak sales season for classics.
