COYS SET FOR DOUBLE HEADER WITH MAJOR AUCTIONS AT AUTOSPORT AND INTERCLASSICS ON JANUARY 14TH  International auctioneers Coys are off to a busy start of the New Year with 100 classic and sports cars going under the hammer at two simultaneous auctions on Saturday 14th January at Autosport International in Birmingham and Interclassics in the Netherlands.

Chris Routledge, CEO of Coys, said: 'We are welcoming the new year with two simultaneous international auctions, offering some of the most desirable classic, sports, racing and rallying cars available on the market. The double header shows the international reach of the company and we hope to achieve outstanding results at both events.'

Over 50 cars will be auctioned, featuring a selection of grand prix, competition, touring and rally vehicles, including a 1996 Porsche 993 Cup (estimated at £120,000 to £220,000), a 1964 Marcos 1800 GT ex-Roger Ealand multi-Championship winning car (£40,000-£50,000) and an ex-works 1998 Honda Accord raced in the British Touring Car Championship by Peter Kox (£50,000-£70,000).

One of the hidden gems of this auction is an original unrestored matching numbers 1965 Iso Rivolta IR 340. This luxurious coupe was conceived by Renzo Rivolta, then chairman of Iso Automotoveicoli S.p.A. of Bresso, and his colleague the former Ferrari engineer Giotto Bizzarrini. It was known for its powerful engine, high quality of construction and elegant style, fitted with a 5.4 litre V8 engine. The car runs and drives but is in need of a restoration to bring it back to its former glory. It is estimated at £26,000 to £35,000.

Other important lots include a 1974 Ferrari 246 GT Dino (£250,000-£280,000), a 1948 Bentley Mk VI in the style of 4 ½ Litre Tourer (£110,000-£140,000), a 1971 Range Rover Suffix A (£18,000-£22,000) and a 1960 Facel Vega HK500 (£90,000-£130,000) and a Mille Miglia eligible 1953 Lancia Aurelia B22 Saloon ex-Giovani Bracco (£10,000-£15,000).
