See the amazing variety of cars at the first AutoClassics Mart
From BMW 2002 to Ford RS200, Bentley Turbo to Toyota Land Cruiser, there really was something for everyone in the AutoClassics cars for sale area at Bicester Heritage
Picture the scene: it's the morning of the Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble. Outside, the sun is out, while inside the huge events hangar the air is gradually warming.
A few cars have been delivered the night before, and we're admiring them when there's a loud rumble from outside, and in comes a white and airbrushed blue Mk2 Capri. Even a V6 wouldn't sound like that – and it turns out that this is nothing less than one of the fabled Savage Capris, built by Jeff Uren.

Welcome to the first ever AutoClassics Mart! Over the rest of the day, the Capri was joined by cars as diverse as Mini Cooper S, 1960s Toyota Land Cruiser in Gulf livery, Lancia Integrale, Ford RS200, Alpine A110, BMW 2002, a Mercedes SL from The Classic Car Club and a Mini Cooper S and Porsche 944 convertible from The Market, plus many more – around 120 in all.
Visitors to the Scramble were invited to display their classic cars for sale in the hangar for free, to complement their free advert on AutoClassics.
The result was a fantastic line up of classics and supercars, many of which sold on the day, or received serious enquires that looked likely to result in later sales. The classics were supplemented by additional displays organised by AutoClassics and stablemate Motor1.
These included the first public appearance of the Lister Thunder (which we now know sounds incredible!), Ben Coombs and his Pub2Pub TVR Chimaera that he drove 20,000 miles from close to the North Pole to South America, AutoClassics staff cars including Porsche 996 and Range Rover P38, and a number of new cars, such as the Subaru BRZ.
The AutoClassics Mart will run again at the next Sunday Scramble on October 7. Sign up to the [AutoClassics newsletter (see the link below) to receive notification of entries opening.

Model History Like other manufacturers, after World War II Fiat continued producing and updating pre-war types. The first blank sheet design was the 1950 1400, the first with unibody Fiat, which took the place of the 1935 1500. Fiat's intermediate offering between the 1500 and the diminutive 500 was the 1100 E, the last evolution of the 508C Nuova Balilla 1100 first launched in 1937. Its replac
Keeping in line with the Ferrari 'tradition' of that time, the 250 GT Lusso was designed by the Turinese coachbuilder Pininfarina, and bodied by Carrozzeria Scaglietti. Although the interior was more spacious than that of the 250 GT, the 250 GT Lusso remained a two-seat GT coupe, unlike the 250 GTE. The car was manufactured for just eighteen months, from early 1963 to mid 1964, and was the last mo
The Aston Martin DB4 was first unveiled at the 1958 London Motor Show, to rave reviews of the public. The car proved to be a significant achievement for the then small British manufacturer. The monocoque punt-type chassis, developed under Harold Beach, featured coil-over A-arm front suspension with an anti-sway bar and a live rear axle, which was located by trailing arms and a proper Watts linkage
