Two classic supercars from 1990 are heading to auction in September – but which one would get your vote?
That’s the challenge participants in the next Classic Car Auctions Live Online sale will face – described by sales manager Gary Dunne as “our biggest sale of the year”.
In the red corner is a supercar from Italy: a 1990 Ferrari 348 tb.
It’s a rarity, too, because apparently there were only 130 right-hand drive versions of the early 348 shipped to the UK.
(You can spot early 348 by their black lower body finish: it was colour-coded on later cars.)
The Ferrari’s first owner actually kept it until 2007, and the service records show maintenance by DK Engineering, Maranello and H.R. Owen.
Showing less than 44,000 miles on the clock, the estimate is £40,000 to £50,000.
And in the blue corner? From Germany, a 1990 Porsche 911 964 Carrera 4 – finished in a special order shade called Tahoe Blue.
This one’s covered a few more miles – 110,000 – but is described as being “stunning”.
The original Linen interior is enhanced with some welcome factory-fit optional extras. This, along with the 964’s special colour, gives an estimate of £25,000 to £30,000.
On top of that for buyers is an 11 percent fee (plus VAT).
Auctioneers will be hoping to beat the previous online auction’s 90 percent sale rate: this sale, running on 18-19 September, is already being referred to as a “September spectacular”.
Which gets your vote here though: the red Ferrari or blue Porsche? Let us know in the comments below – and better still, tell us if you’re planning to bid!
