'Old warhorse' Lagonda leads the way at £188,600 in H&H Classics sale
A highly original car coming to market for the first time in nearly three decades, it had been professionally valued last year at £120,000.

LONDON.- H&H Classics’ latest Live Auction Online of Automobilia, Bikes and Cars achieved a total of £910,000 with over 70% of the cars sold - some provisional sales remain outstanding. There were 506 bidders registered for the sale, a fair number from abroad.

Undoubted star was the patinated 1934 Lagonda M45 T7 Tourer. A highly original car coming to market for the first time in nearly three decades, it had been professionally valued last year at £120,000. Viewed by six people at H&H’s offices before the sale and contested by eight bidders, the Post Vintage Thoroughbred romped past its guide price of £100,000 - £120,000 to make £188,600.

Finished in Stardust Silver, the beautifully restored 1974 Ford Escort RS2000 commanded £41,400, while a notably early 1995 Bentley Azure – chassis number 1 – realised £46,000 despite needing some cosmetic attention.

Proof that Alfa Romeo still has the power to tug at enthusiasts’ heart strings, the 2007 Spider 3.2 V6 JTS Q4 on offer was guided at £7,000 - £9,000 but fetched £14,950. The vendor was amazed at the number of socially distanced viewings he had conducted at home.

All twenty automobilia lots found new homes with the first lot, Aston Martin Zagato by Stephen Archer and Simon Harries, setting the tone by making £1,416 against an estimate of £400 - £600.

Best seller among the motorcycles was the elegant 1938 Ariel Red Hunter VH which fetched £12,075.
