As you may recall, a while ago we told you about a super sweet Lamborghini Miura owned at one time by rock legend Rod Stewart crossing the auction block. Well, it has crossed it now, and fetched in the process the princely sum of £909,000.
Sold by Coys at their first Classic & Sports Car Show sale at London’s Alexandra Palace, Stewart’s Lamborghini Miura P400S, which boasts £100,000 worth of restoration and upgrade to SV specification, reinforces its position as one of the world’s most desirable vintage super cars. You can be sure that a year from now that 900K will be around a million five, and a year after that it’ll pass the two million mark.
As for the other highlights of Coys Alexandra auction, the Maserati Ghibli 4.9 SS owned by U2 drummer Adam Clayton, one of only eight right-hand drive examples, went for £303,000 which is a new record for this model. There was also a 1970 Range Rover, the 26th model manufactured, which fetched £93,000, an original right hand drive 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GT E Series, with coachwork by Scaglietti and design by Pininfarina, which went for £374,000 and a 1977 Ferrari 512 BB that featured at the 1977 London Motor Show, which went for £225,000.
