Coys third auction of 2015, and our first central London sale of the year, was a well-received success by all aspects of the historic car fraternity worldwide.

Motor cars were selling visibly well and across the globe. Chris Routledge, one of our auctioneering partners, commented that our auction specialists worked closely with our sellers to ensure that cars were offered with sensible reserves appropriate to the market of 2015, and the sellers were all delighted with the results, which bear out the straightforward process of a sensible reserve price will equal to a sold historic motor car!
