Classic car auction disruptor, The Market, will auction a trio of exemplary 1970s supercars on its online-only bidding portal this week, where buyers pay only what they bid and sellers receive 95 per cent of the sale price.
SVA says: Any platform that increases classic car sales is a good thing, but the fact that there are only 3 cars in this particular auction when at Historics at Brooklands on Saturday there were around 120 should say something. Buyers and Sellers at auctions pay more of course in fees, but buying your sought after classic or mid life crisis buy is an experience. You want to see the car close up, lay down and inspect the underneath for leaks, fiddle with nobs and inspect the engine bay. Run your fingers along every gap for variance, and having chosen one, the adrenaline begins to seep into your blood.. Its up next, you bid, (Up to your desired budget and maybe JUST a smidgen more..) You compete with a bloke opposite, who cant possibly want this car more than you do and suddenly the hammer goes down and its yours! You raise your paddle quickly, so the auctioneer knows you were serious.. THAT, ladies and gentlemen is an experience and next to visiting an authentic classic car dealer, a good way to buy a classic car!
