D also the unrestored Austin-Healey has much more to offer than the fateful involvement in what is probably the most momentous accident in motorsport history. It is one of only four factory racing cars built that were used from 1953. These early Austin Healey vehicles had many technical specialties that were not built into the production vehicles. The historic racing sports car achieved by far the highest bid in the auction.
A meager sales quota of around 50 percent
The second best result came from a Ferrari F40 from 1990, which brought in the equivalent of 251,000 euros. Overall, just over half of all cars were sold. This also included a Mercedes-Benz 450 SL from 1973 for around 12,000 euros. A bidder for a helmet from Sebastian Vettel's team-mate Mark Webber from last season paid just £ 350 less.
