Race Retro Sale 2018: How did our picks do?

This year we’re going the following:

2004 Honda NSX (facelift) – Estimate (£): 70,000 – 80,000

HAMMER PRICE ON THE DAY (£): Result to follow 

Because an NSX is still excellent value and a real looker.

1990 Ferrari 348 TB – Estimate (£): 42,000 – 48,000

HAMMER PRICE ON THE DAY (£): 41,625

Are Ferrari buyers feeling shy? This is beneath the lower estimate and according to the rest of the market these 348s really should be doing better than £40k. Has the bad weather in the UK put buyers under a grey cloud? Come on, it’s a proper Ferrari and it’s got that classic Ferrari shape, this should be £50,000 all day long.

Because as Ferrari’s go, the 348 is under valued and under appreciated despite looking like an iconic Ferrari. One to watch if you can’t stretch to a 355 anymore (they used to be £35-40k, remember…?)

1989 Lancia Thema 8.32 – No Reserve

HAMMER PRICE ON THE DAY (£): 29,813

Got to be a record for a Thema, massively helped by that Rowan Atkinson link. A difficult car to benchmark because there just aren’t that many around. We found one, in Holland, for £17,500.

4 seats, Ferrari engine, Italian interior… And it used to belong to Rowan Atkinson. Superbly cool and rare.

1982 Ferrari 400 GTi Manual – Estimate (£): 45,000 – 55,000

HAMMER PRICE ON THE DAY (£): Unsold

Where have all the Ferrari buyers gone? The 400 is an interesting choice when it comes to Ferrari, it’s the wrong shape and this one is arguably the wrong colour, but for it to go unsold we’re a bit baffled. There was a time when these were down in the low teens, does this mean they’re on the way back down? It’s beautiful, wedgy, rare and from the left field, so what’s not to like?

Two words… Daft Punk. Want one.
