• The 7th annual Barrington Concours d’Elegance has announced a clutch of luminaries for this year’s event. Stars like racing legend Bobby Rahal, car czar Bob Lutz, Duesenberg expert Randy Ema, collector Peter Mullin and Chicago Deputy Mayor Steve Koch have put their support behind the Concours’ year-long celebration of the automobile. The capstone event will be the Concours d’Elegance to be held on the rolling greens of the Makray Memorial Golf Club in Barrington, Illinos, which will feature 100 of the world’s finest and rarest vehicles on July 12-14, 2013. Concours proceeds this year will benefit The Barrington Area Conservation Trust through the newly established Legends & Legacies Foundation.
• H&H Auctions had its busiest February sale ever at The Pavilion Gardens, in Buxton. All seven cars entered from a private collection found new homes with the star of the septet, a 1935 Alvis Speed 20SC Lancefield Drophead Coupe commanding £99,680, against its pre-sale estimate of £60,000– £70,000. However, highest price of the day went to a beautifully restored and notably early 1929 Lagonda 2 Liter Low Chassis Speed Model Tourer that attracted no fewer than six telephone bidders but which was dispatched in the room for £100,240 (against a pre-sale estimate of £40,000– £50,000). Other notable results included a 1950 Jaguar XK120 Roadster with period competition history that made £69,440 and a 1967 Austin Mini Cooper S, which was sold on behalf of the RSPB for £29,400.
