Highlighted sports cars include a Chevrolet Corvette, TVR Chimera, MG TD and an Alfa Romeo SZ Zagato
About 150 collector cars will cross the block August 3 during the CCA auction at the Warwickshire Event Centre in England.
The sale, presented by an auction company that calls itself “Specialists in Everyman Classics,” will be highlighted by four special sports cars, one from the US, two from the UK and one from Italy.
A 1963 Corvette Stingray roadster that has undergone a complete nut-and-bolt restoration, according to a CCA news release, imported to the UK from California in 2013, and sold with its original factory hardtop, has a pre-auction estimated value of £45,000 to £55,000 ($57,000 to $70,000).
“This is a really lovely car and it also comes with the original wheels which have been fully refurbished, giving the prospective buyer a choice,” Simon Langsdale, classic car specialist for CCA, said in the release. “You could say this is a stunning best-of-breed car.”
A one-owner, 7,306-mile 1994 TVR Chimera produced in Blackpool, UK, and powered by a 4.0-liter V8 engine, has an estimated value of £14,000 to £18,000 ($18,000 to $23,000).
“The Chimera is a fire-breathing, goat-bodied, lion-headed monster with the tail of a serpent,” specialist consigner Nick Bicknell said. “Everyone should have an interesting pet!”
From Oxford, England, comes a classic 1950 MG TD roadster in Cream with a red-leather interior that was twice restored, once in 1994 and again in 2005, the auction says, and has been driven just 2,983 miles since its last resto, now with an estimated value of £18,000 to £22,000 ($23,000 to $28,000).
The Italian sports car is a rare and sought-after 1992 Alfa Romeo SZ Zagato, styled by the famed Milanese design house and one of just 1,000 built, all of them in red with a gray roof and tan-leather interior. This SZ was one of the last made and, after 11 years in storage, has been fully recommissioned with just 69,025 kilometers (42,890 miles) showing on its odometer. The estimated value is £38,000 to £42,000 ($48,000 to $53,000).
