British Classic Cars are All-White

    A brace of white 1970’s British sports car are to be entered in the Charterhouse specialist auction of vintage and classic cars on 9th March being held at Haynes.

    “There are over 50 classic and vintage cars in all shapes, sizes, values, conditions and colours in the auction.” Commented Richard Bromell. “However, for me, there are two cool looking white British sports cars, a Lotus Elan convertible and a Triumph GT6, which I would like to drive home in”.

    Both are in great condition and painted in the perennially popular car colour of white.

    First up there is a 1970 Lotus Elan S4 SE convertible. Bought by the owner in 2016 from a specialist Lotus dealer this is now ready for some summer fun estimated at £20,000-25,000.

    This is followed by a 1973 Triumph GT6. This had one family ownership until purchased by the vendor as a project in 2006. The car is now fully restored, costing in excess of £10,000, and ready to be enjoyed once again estimated at £12,000-15,000.
