Not a bad ef­fort for Brightwells’ ven­ture into sell­ing later clas­sics at a ded­i­cated event – one year on, the Mod­ern Clas­sics auc­tion still meets the re­quire­ments of those want­ing to dip a toe into the move­ment’s grow­ing sec­tor.

Defin­ing when a car is a mod­ern clas­sic or a ‘proper’ clas­sic might be tricky, but for those want­ing a Mini or big Jaguar sa­loon there was some­thing to meet that de­mand. And Brightwells de­liv­ered for the more un­usual palate, with a Subaru SVX (sold for £1100) and Nis­san 300ZX in targa form of­fer­ing slightly left-field driv­ing. Un­sur­pris­ingly, BMWs and Mercedes-Benz mod­els were out in force, mak­ing this a good sale for any­one seek­ing out Teu­tonic neo­clas­sic own­er­ship.

A good ef­fort, then, and with soar­ing tem­per­a­tures send­ing the mer­cury ris­ing, Brightwells did well when pun­ters could oth­er­wise have been at home, sit­ting in the shade.
