Last chance for 2010 prestige car bargains


Turners Auctions is giving Kiwis another chance to live the high life as 20 stunning cars come to auction in the last Prestige Auction of the year

The collection of vehicles is estimated to be worth $2 million and features the pinnacle of prestige motoring, a Rolls Royce Phantom, as well as some of the world’s most exotic supercars.

“The 20 cars on offer represent the finest brands in motoring and would make a great buy for anyone looking for a vehicle with flair and distinction,” says Graeme Roberts, Turners CEO.

“Six of the vehicles are convertible and would be perfect for a sophisticated summer road trip.”

The 2003 Rolls Royce Phantom is in mint condition and is expected to fetch between $240,000 and $300,000 at auction, far below the $1 million price tag that it was bought for in 2003.

Another striking vehicle up for grabs is the 2008 Bentley Continental GT. This six-litre, 12-cylinder stunner has just 15,000km on the clock and would be a great addition to the garage this Christmas.

The 2004 Ferrari 360 Modena F1 convertible looks brilliant in black and can turn even the most mundane commute into a thrilling joyride.

Turners also has a stunning example of a 1997 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster. The 5.7 Litre, V12 manual is in immaculate condition and is one of only eight VT all wheel drive roadsters in the world.

For those in less of a hurry, there’s always the 1937 Chevrolet Cabriolet which has been beautifully restored and finished in a bold blue that’s sure to get you noticed at the beach this summer.

Other cars on offer include:

  • 2006 BMW 118i M E87
  • 2001 Lexus SC430 Convertible
  • 2005 Vauxhall VX220 R Turbo
  • 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S
