Top 25 UK classic car auction prices of 2015

Classic car auction prices in the UK topped £500k in the first quarter of 2015, and there were 12 different marques in the top 25.

The highest price so far this year was for a 1955 Frazer-Nash Le Mans Coupe at Bonhams’ first Goodwood Members’ Meeting sale on 21 March. The last Frazer-Nash to race at Le Mans, it sold for £505,500. 

Another rarity to make big money at the same sale was a Bentley T-Series Coupe Speziale prototype. The bespoke commission for Lord Hanson was exhibited on the Pininfarina stand at the 1968 Paris and London Motor Shows. It would be the inspiration for the Rolls-Royce Camargue. It sold for more than £250k.  

Not all the marques in the top 25 are premium though - a beautifully restored 1936 Riley Sprite made more than £170k at the Brightwells 3 March sale.
