World Rally Championship Car Sells for Half a Million Dollars

Over the weekend a 1994 Subaru Prodrive 555 Group A World Rally Championship Car sold under the hammer at Lloyds Auctions for half a million dollars.

This world rally championship car was driven by Colin McRae and Carlos Sainz and is unrestored and in untouched condition from when it retired in 1996.

“This WRC car was a needle in a haystack, uncovered in a barn in Victoria, and was originally thought to have an estimated value of $15,000-$20,000,” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions.

It is a golden treasure and one of only 63 commissioned by Prodrive and is authenticated original by ICAARS.

“The new custodians are motorsport enthusiasts and are looking forward to enjoying all the benefits of the car and honouring the vehicle,” Mr. Hames continued.  

Also in the auction was Walkinshaw Andretti United’s winning supercar driven by Chaz Mostert that sold for $600,000 under the hammer, and a Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III that sold for a record breaking $1.3million.

A digital NFT version of the same Ford Falcon GTHO Phase III also went under the hammer on Saturday night, which went for $51,000.
