Once again, Bonhams' Goodwood sale netted an impressive set of results – a clear indication that the Revival remains one of the premier sales on the UK calendar. All manner of items sold including children’s model cars, registration numbers, and even an aeroplane. However, there were star cars, too – Bernard Consten's 1964 Porsche 904 GTS, chassis 021, made £485,500. His similarly mint 1965 Alfa Romeo TZ1 also scored well, making £254,500. A 1970 Aston Martin DB6 Mk2 Volante, sold to only its third owner from new for £287,500. However, these achievements were put into perspective by the sale of Edinburgh's first registration plate, S1. Selling for £397,500 – a new world record price at auction – we'll be interested to see what car it ends up appearing on.
In the automobilia section, a beautifully detailed Austin Healey 3000 Mk II child’s car doubled its estimate and sold for £17,250 – the price of many a full-scale Austin Healey. The ultimate winter project, however, was a 1941 Hawker Sea Hurricane in need of total restoration. But how cool does that look for £8050? Other key prices achieved included:* Ex-A J Lees 1931-Type Maserati Tipo 8C-2800 Two-Seat Sports/Formula Competition car, £243,500 * 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Saloon, £131,300 * 18,000 miles from new, 2001 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible, £111,500 * 1967 Lamborghini 400GT Coupe, £109,300 * 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GTS Targa Coupe, £84,000
