1986 Ford Sierra Cosworth sells for £132,750

Post by mab01uk »

"The 1986 RS Cosworth - which has 8,795 miles on the clock from new - is now the most expensive Sierra ever. It not only exceeded the £110,000 pre-sale higher estimate but eclipsed the previous record by £10,350. It's considered not the most exclusive of all Fast Ford Sierras, with the RS500 the one that's most sought-after. Another eight vehicles achieved world record prices - and three UK records - at the Silverstone Auctions event hosted on Saturday and Sunday as part of the NEC Classic Motor Show."

"A 1972 Mk1 Ford Transit sold for £61,875, which is the most anyone has ever paid for a classic Transit at the block.
The '72 example is a twin-wheel, long-wheel-base version of the Panel Custom Van, which first launched to the UK market in 1965.
The auction house described it ahead of the weekend's bidding as a 'best-of-breed' contender, saying collectors were being offered an 'unrepeatable opportunity to acquire a rather special example of what is becoming a highly collectable vehicle'.
Being a 'custom' model, it boasts features such as both left and right-hand side loading doors, up-and-over barn doors, improved seats and wood-effect dashboard trim."

Times move on. Looks like the 80's are where the big prices are at now.

If it was an E30 BMW M3 you can add another 50 grand at least.

It's probably why 1275GT prices are now equalling those of a 998 Cooper.

The black 1980 GT sold for £21,750, and it was far from standard. 1967 998 Cooper achieved £32,625.

The NEC auction always seems to attract some big bidders and is probably one of the best places to sell a good car.

It's a good place offload shite as well - I saw some real rubbish when I last went in 2019.

Same as any auction I guess.

80s fast fords are just nuts. I hardly drive my RS500 these days as the value of it spoils the fun of it - yet I can’t quite bring myself to sell it either !!!
