Immaculate A80 Toyota Supra RZ stars among Race Retro auction lots

Nineties icon joined by eclectic mix of road and race heroes in upcoming Silverstone Auctions event

Silverstone Auctions will put a fascinating variety of iconic road and race cars through its next Race Retro sale on March 27 and 28, with highlights including an immaculate UK-spec A80 Toyota Supra, a rally-raid Porsche 911 Safari and a rare Jaguar XKR-S GT, to name just a few. 

For many years a favourite of Fast & Furious-style ‘tuners’, the A80 Toyota Supra’s immense popularity within that community has made totally original and well-kept examples extremely rare. UK-specification Supra RZs are rarer still, especially when fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox, so the unmolested and professionally restored example going under the hammer at Race Retro will surely have plenty of eager eyes upon it.

At completely the other end of the spectrum is not just an American saloon car racer, but one from a completely different era. The Studebaker marque isn’t one we often come into contact with at evo, it having closed up shop in 1967, but this particular Silver Hawk Coupe has found plenty of track time at historic racing events such as the Goodwood Revival. 

But the Studebaker isn’t the only historic racer in the sale, with other exotics like the Nissan 240Z ‘Super Samurai’ and a 10A Mazda RX-3 bringing a Japanese flavour to proceedings. The Mazda even features an original rotary engine, instead of being one of the more common piston-converted examples, having raced its last event over 42 years ago.

A rally-prepped Porsche 911 Safari is also part of the sale, while other highlights among the road cars include a super-low-mileage Holden Commodore V8 with less than 620 miles on the clock and the unicorn-like Jaguar XKR-S GT, a limited edition that celebrated the end of Jaguar XK production with a stripped out interior and a more intensive driver focus. 

The Silverstone Auctions Race Retro sale will be conducted online on March 27 and 28, with 349 individual lots going under the virtual hammer.
