Hot Hatch Peugeot 205 GTI Makes £26,620 At Christmas Cracker Auction

Barons
The 1989 Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI - £26,620

A Frisky Prince was one of the centre attractions at the recent end of year festive classic auction – and three stunning scale models that would delight any enthusiast on Christmas morning.

Pre-war saloons, one-owner cars and the odd restoration project were all given centre stage as an eclectic mix of classics went under the hammer at the Barons’ Christmas Classic Sale at Sandown Park on December 12, which saw a number of entries almost double estimate.

These included a 1964 Jaguar Mk 3.8 saloon, which achieved £41,800 (estimate £22,000-£28,000), and a 1994 Jaguar XJS 4.0 ‘facelift’ model that was bought for £11,000 (estimate £4,500-£6,000).

Hot Hatch

One hotly-contested lot was the ideal hot hatch – the 1989 Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI. With just one lady owner from new and only 21,000 miles on the clock, this sold for £26,620, racing past the £18,000-£22,000 estimate.

The snow may have been falling heavily – which prevented quite a few of the cars entered for the auction making it to the sale room on time, but those that were there found ready and enthusiastic buyers.

The 1934 Alvis Speed 20 SB – a challenging but enormously rewarding restoration project – achieved £13,200 and the new owner can now enjoy planning the work the car will undergo in 2018.

The 1954 Morris Minor 1000 that has spent 30 years under a dust sheet in a farm shed was offered at no reserve, and its buyer has acquired a charming starter classic for £1,450.

The Barons team doesn’t have much time to rest over Christmas – it’s already into taking consignments for the first sale of 2018, the Classic Winter Warmer at Sandown Park on February 27.
