Review: Anglia, online, May 1-2 2021

As we’ve come to expect from Anglia, the May sale was a big one, with some 422 lots over two days ranging from bikes to automobilia, plus of course over 200 cars and an impressive sale rate just over 85% at the time of writing.

Headline results included the £155,000 bid for a 1962 Aston Martin Lagonda Rapide, alongside the hefty £56,500 hammer price of an E30 BMW M3, its Cecotto limited edition status helping the bidding along. Meanwhile, an XR2 of identical vintage powered to an £18,500 bid and a 1981 E21 BMW 323i was no doubt assisted by Top Gear-fuelled nostalgia for ‘Dad’s cars’ to make an impressive £14,000.

We’ve picked some of our personal highlights from the huge catalogue but you’ll find the full results at

The Fiat Coupe has aged well and the 20V Turbo is the sought-after model. This one went for £2970 after premiums.

Star of the sale was this 1962 Aston Martin Lagonda Rapide in manual RHD spec which was hammered away at £155,000.

This 1962 Morris Traveller was ready to use and looked like great value at £7560. Proving that the E46 M3 is already on the way up, this 2003 SMG car made £15,660 with premium.

Few Silver Spirits are good enough to command nearly £20,000 but this 14,666- mile car cost its new owner £19,980. Humble Sierra 1.8 LXi had covered just 2780 miles from new and was bid up to £6000. It’s a confident man who sends an RS Turbo to auction with no reserve but the hammer dropped at £21,000 on this restored car. Lovely-looking Mercedes W108 250SE doubled its upper estimate to cost its new owner £8640.

This 58,000-mile Mk2 XR2 was hammered away for £18,750.

The Lancia Delta HF Turbo must be the ultimate left-field hot hatch. It smashed its £5000-£7000 estimate to sell for £10,880 with premium.
