1995 MITSUBISHI 3000 GT SPYDER

ESTIMATE €30,000- €35,000


The Mitsubishi 3000 GT was produced from 1992 to 1999, at a time where the rise of multiple Japanese supercars was very apparent. From the rotary-powered Mazda RX-7 to the legendary Nissan Skyline GT-R, there was no shortage of technologically advanced coupes with supercar beating capabilities. A combination of powerful turbocharged engines and previously unseen technological improvements made these vehicles appealing to a wide audience, at the fraction of the cost of a traditional supercar. The Mitsubishi 3000 GT was one of a handful of production vehicles that was instrumental in influencing the improved mechanisation of cars in the years that followed. For instance, features such as active aerodynamics and an all-wheel-drive system came as standard in the 3000 GT

Despite the complex hardware causing the 3000 GT to weigh in at over 1700 kg, acceleration from 0-60 mph was claimed to take just 5.5 seconds. In addition to this, the vehicle offered great long-distance touring capabilities and boasted rear high-speed stability and grip, partly as a result of a wide rear spoiler. Owners of these cars are said to appreciate the impressive straight-line performance and lavish interior.
The example offered today is the rarest variant- the 3000 GT Spyder- and there are very few known examples in Europe in particular. This is because the company named ASC (American Sunroof Corporation) carried out the conversions on regular coupes by using an automatic folding roof, similarly to Mercedes for the SLK a few years later. The vendor describes the vehicle as being very good mechanically, with a few cosmetic blemishes on the folding roof. As both a Japanese sports icon and a usable weekend toy, this represents an opportunity to buy a cult convertible which is ready to drive immediately.

1969 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE 1300 - COYS AUCTIONS Grand Marques Sale MECC Forum 100, 6229GV Maastricht The Netherlands Friday 17th January 2020

1969 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE 1300
Estimate 15,000 - 17,00 Euros


Although designed in the 1930s, due to World War II, civilian Beetles only began to be produced in significant numbers by the end of the 1940s. The car was then internally designated the Volkswagen Type 1, and marketed simply as the Volkswagen. Later models were designated Volkswagen 1200, 1300, 1500, 1302, or 1303, the former three indicating engine displacement, the latter two derived from the model number. The car became widely known in its home country as the K√§fer (German for “beetle”, cognate with English chafer) and was later marketed under that name in Germany, and as the Volkswagen in other countries. For example, in France, it was known as the Coccinelle (French for ladybug).
First registered in 1969, the superb example on offer here is described by the vendor as being in like-new condition and has covered a mere 86,043 km. It is also fitted with a very rare sunroof. Finished in cream with a black interior, the car comes complete with an extensive history file detailing maintenance work carried out over the years.
