BCA will be holding its third edition of Future Classics sale on the 17th of May at BCA Nottingham. The event will feature an eclectic mix of sportscars, family saloons, performance cars and prestige models on offer on the day.

“Our Future Classics sale attracts a great deal of interest from trade buyers and private enthusiasts. The sale catalogue features a great mix of classic and performance cars and we expect further examples to be consigned for the sale over the coming days,” said BCA spokesman Tim Naylor.

Some of the cars included in the offer are:

Mercedes-Benz SL350 3.7 – Convertible

Registered in 2003 and finished in silver, this SL350 Convertible is well presented with a mileage of nearly 130,000. The powerful 3.7 litre engine delivers a great performance and it has the auto/manual mode gearbox. With an original cost new of £58,000, this represents a great opportunity to acquire a future classic convertible for a very reasonable value.

BMW 1 Series M3 Coupe

This smartly presented two-door coupe from 2012 is complete with service history and has covered just over 41,000 miles. Finished in black with leather trim, climate control, parking sensors and 19″ Alloy Wheels, it pairs the 3.0 litre M-Sport petrol engine with a manual gearbox. Originally costing around £40,000 depending on options these M3 Coupes hold their value well.

Volvo 1800 2.0 ES Estate

The classic lines of the Volvo 1800 Estate have aged well and this 1973 example finished in gold has the manual gearbox with overdrive. Due to its age this Volvo qualifies under DVLA classic status and is exempt from vehicle tax. It comes with old style logbook and is showing a mileage of 88,000 (unwarranted).

The Top Car sale will also stage a broad selection of prestige and sporting models, including the very desirable Ferrari F355 3.5 GTS Targa F1 from 1999. This supercar has covered under 25,000 miles from new and is finished in Rosso Red – the original cost new was over £100,000.
