Porsches set pace at Silverstone sale

A 1989 911 Turbo SE, ’63 split-window Corvette and a Makinen Mitsubishi set British sales records at Silverstone auction

Silverstone Auctions set some British auction records at its Salon Prive sale Saturday at Blenheim Palace.

Overall, the sale totaled £2.75 ($3.56 million).

Among the British-sale record breakers were a 1989 Porsche 911 Turbo SE “Flat Nose,” one of only 10 produced to UK specification, which sold for £245,250 ($317,500); a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette “split window” coupe that brought £102,938 ($133,250); and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI “Tommi Makinen” edition that sold for £46,688 ($60,500).

Prices include buyer’s fee.

Split-window Corvette also sets British record

Silverstone pointed to several other significant sales as well, including a 1969 Shelby GT500 Ford Mustang that brought £102,375 ($132,500), a 1974 Lamborghini Urraco P250 that sold for £96,188 ($124,500) and a Lamborghini 1R tractor that went for £20,813 ($26,950).
