100 collection cars under the hammer

In Spring 2018, Bicester Heritage will play host to a one-off auction that will see more than 100 hand-picked cars go under the hammer from Jaguar Land Rover Classic’s Collection.

Hosted by Bicester Heritage’s official auction partner Brightwells, the ‘Affordable Classics’ event sees a vast array of rare and low-mileage models go up for grabs from Britain’s most revered classic marques – including Austin, Ford, Morris, Rover and Triumph.

The former RAF Bicester turned historic motoring community will open its gates on Wednesday 21 March and kick off the classic car bidding war.

Matthew Parkin, head of Brightwells Classic Cars, said, ‘We are absolutely delighted to have been asked by Jaguar Land Rover Classic to auction off of part of its significant Classic Collection. Focussing solely on non-Jaguar Land Rover products, the diversity of the lots on offer is extraordinary, offering everything from a Riva-style Speedboat to the unique Scimitar Ferguson prototype – all at no reserve. It’s safe to say it’s going to be a lot of fun!

‘The assembly of vehicles on offer was clearly carefully curated, with rare or particularly low-mileage examples of cult classics selected. As the home of the classic car, Bicester Heritage is the ideal location for these rare models to find new homes, and we can’t wait to welcome enthusiasts on site.’
