April Classic Car Auction Recap

April’s classic car auction went off with a bang! Starting the day off with a national live cross on Sunrise, and then running a mammoth 10-hour classic car auction, it was a day not to be missed!

There was something for everyone at this month’s auction from entry level to high-end classic vehicles. Let’s take a deep dive and see some of the standout lots that SOLD this month.

Starting with the USA classics, they kicked off the auction fiercely.

Our first standout lot was a 1970 Dodge Charger 500. Originally from California, USA and with just 58 thousand miles on the clock, it was finished in the beautiful emerald green and packed with a V8 engine. Congratulations to the new custodian, we hope you enjoy your new classic.

Another sold lot in the USA market was the 1999 Chevrolet C5 Corvette, you won’t miss this one on the road, finished in bright red just take a look at it! It is an absolute stunner. Fitted with the V9 supercharged petrol engine it is sure to pack a punch! Congratulations to the new custodians.

Moving through to the European market, this got people excited.

The first standout lot that sold was a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo. I’d love one of these in my garage! It’s finished in the classy black and fitted with a V10 engine, made for speed!

It wouldn’t be a true representation of European classics without a 2001 Ferrari Spider being included in the auction listing. Finished in Bumblebee yellow and indicating just 42 thousand kilometres on the clock, this one is almost too good to be true.

Following the euros, we move into the Japanese market.

Selling under the hammer was a 2002 Mazda FD RX-7 and 2014 Subaru WRX STi Rally car. Another two great cars sold with Lloyds Classic Car Auctions.

And last but not least, everyone’s favourite, the Aussie classics!

This category keeps everyone on their toes and is the one everyone anticipates.

Selling a 1974 Holden HJ Monaro GTS Coupe with only 20 thousand kilometres and a 1971 Holden HT Monaro GTS was a showdown to say the least.

Be sure to tune into our next classic car auction on the 27th May from 10am for what will be another epic auction.
