Ex-Rod Stewart Lamborghini Miura sells for £909,000 at Coys auctionand Ex-Adam Clayton Maserati Ghibli sells for world-record price of £303,000
A 1971 Lamborghini Miura first owned by rock legend Sir Rod Stewart was sold at auction for £909,000 by international auctioneers Coys at their first Classic & Sports Car Show sale at London’s Alexandra Palace.
The Miura took centre stage on Saturday 29th October and became the most valuable car to sell at the auction. This P400S model had been the subject of a £100,000 restoration and upgrade to SV specification.
A 1972 Maserati Ghibli 4.9 SS, once owned by none other than U2 drummer Adam Clayton, set a new world-record for a Ghibli sold at auction when it went for £303,000. This car was one of only eight right-hand drive examples.
Chris Routledge, CEO of Coys, said: “In combination with the very high quality features, displays and the amazing live parades on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, including original Grand Prix cars on the
streets of London, the Coys auction was a very powerful addition to what was a dramatically improved Classic & Sports Car Show.
“The auction was exceptional and clearly shows that the historic motor car market is strong and alive with a world-record price for a Maserati Ghibli, a fabulous result for a 246 Dino and a very encouraging price achieved for the Rod Stewart Miura.”
