British auction house Coys reports that its recent auction held in conjunction with the Essen Techno Classica in Germany produced sales of nearly $5.5 million.
“We are delighted to have successfully sold a significant number of high-value historic motor cars to an international audience,” Coys managing partner Chris Routledge said in a news release. “This truly outlines the global reach of the company.”
The high-dollar sale (well, the auction was conducted in Euros but we’ve converted prices to dollars) was $667,820 for a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta.
Coys also reported a 1963 Bentley S3 Continental “Flying Spur” sold for $234,000 and a 1965 Ferrari 330GT 2+2 brought just shy of $229,500.
Other sales the company labeled as “important” included $226,400 for a Pur Sang Bugatti Type 35C, $154,350 for a 1962 Jaguar E-type Series I 3.8-litre roadster, $149,750 for a 1929 Packard 640 Custom Eight roadster, $149,750 for a Barker-bodied 1937 Bentley 3 1/2 drop head coupe, and $142,000 for a 1950 Jaguar XK120 roadster.
Coys next sale is April 26 at Ascot, where a display will celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Royal Marines.
