Proxibid (www.proxibid.com), the most trusted online Marketplace for buying and selling highly valued items, will provide online bidding for H&H Classics Limited’s sale of the classic cars and motorcycles at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridge, U.K. Live onsite bidding will begin October 13 and 14 at 11:00 AM EUR (BST), daily. Online bidding is already available by visiting Proxibid.

The two-day event will feature collector cars, motorcycles, and automobilia of the highest caliber. With more than 200 lots of motorcycles and vehicles, including 60 lots of cherished memorabilia and wristwatches, the event is a can’t-miss sale for collectors around the world. Hosted in Europe’s largest historic aviation center, the building provides for a spectacular atmosphere. Online buyers can expect an equally exciting event online via Proxibid’s live bidding platform.

Buyers who cannot attend the auction in person can bid with confidence online from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Proxibid is the only online Marketplace with a fraud prevention system designed specifically to protect high dollar purchases like the exceptional motor vehicles and collectables in this sale.

Featured lots in the sale include:

  • 1971 Jaguar E-Type V12 Coupe: Soccer legend George Best took delivery of this brand new blue bombshell at the height of his fame, and drove the vehicle until 1974 when it was sold. The car carries an estimate of £40,000 – £60,000 ($61,000 – $91,000 USD).
  • 1943 Sherman M4A1 Grizzly I Cruiser: This tank, designed in Canada in 1943 for use in WWII, was likely among the Cruisers used to train Canadian troops in England, rather than on the frontline based on its unscathed condition. As one of only 188 made, it is expected to fetch £150,000 – £200,000 ($228,000 – $305,000 USD).
  • 1997 Subaru Impreza WRC 97: H&H Classics are excited to offer the first Subaru Impreza that Prodrive built to WRC specification, and which racing legend Colin McRae debuted on the 1997 Monte Carlo Rally in their October 14 Duxford auction. The estimate for the vehicle is £175,000 – £200,000. ($267,000 – $305,000 USD)
  • 1956 BMW Rennsport RS 500 Type 256: At an estimated value of £160,000 – £180,000 ($244,000 – $275,000 USD) the Rennsport features a black and chrome design, exposed drive shaft, and 500 cc engine. This classic post-war model is in excellent condition, making it the perfect addition to any collection.

“Bringing the auction online with Proxibid is important as we reach an international audience,” said Simon Hope, Managing Director and Chief Auctioneer of H&H Classics Limited. “We’re excited that buyers from all over the world can participate alongside our onsite bidders, especially in the Proxibid Marketplace where our buyers can be sure their transactions are secure.”
