Chris Routledge, Managing Partner at Coys, said:
“The superb selection of cars of offer appealed to the truly international audience present at the show, who queued 150 metres out of the door and round the corner to attend on auction day - with cars predictably selling to all four corners of the globe.” He added: “We will undoubtedly be returning and look forward to Frankfurt being a permanent feature in Coys' international auction programme.”
Coys next auction is The Spirit of Motoring, held at the seat of the British sporting establishment, Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire, with yet another broad, high-quality selection of classic and sports cars.
