Youngtimers über alles
A leading German auction specialist says the ‘youngtimer’ market is showing no signs of slowing.
Günter Kauffman, of auction house Auktion & Markt, is hosting a sale at the Retro Classics Stuttgart show. He says: ‘Youngtimers from the 1970s and 1980s, the youth dreams of the buyers as it were, are still proving very popular.’
The second Classicbid night takes place on 3 March and will feature more than 40 cars, including a 1980 Datsun 280 ZX 10th Anniversary Edition.
Show founder, Karl Ulrich Herrmann adds: ‘ The German auction market is very different to the British scene. Only now are many Germans coming round to the idea of bidding on a car.’
