To say that CTS Auctions knows how to put on a show is a huge understatement. With Fleetwood Mac’s famous track, ‘The Chain’ (The BBC’s longtime F1 intro track) to accompany the cacophony of sound that is the 500-hp V16 BRM Grand Prix car roaring around Silverstone, Rory Johnston, Managing Director of Classic Throttle Shop, arrives at the stage in a Messerschmitt KR200 bubble car to welcome the 300+ guests to ‘the foundations of the Sydney Harbour Bridge’ – scene firmly set!
The message was loud and clear – CTS Auctions are committed, focused, and have the expertise and credibility needed to run a successful collector car auction business. They have the finest auction platform available in Australia and a group of people not only dedicated to, but also extremely knowledgeable about the collector car world.
Amongst the confusion of the Australian collector car market caused by the announcement in the press that rival auction business Bonhams & Goodman will stop trading on December 22, 2009, CTS Auctions now looks well placed to take over the mantle as the collector & classic car auction house of choice even earlier than they had originally planned as evidenced by the fast growing number of new consignments from established collectors for their inaugural December 5 Sydney Auction.
If the success of the launch party is anything to go by, the inaugural auction will be a must-see event for car buffs and even socialites. Stylish European classics and important race cars will be bid for by Australia’s and indeed the world’s elite collector group, and with a cocktail bar in full swing, there is every reason to get down to Classic Throttle Shop and buy yourself one of these fine cars and ticket into the exciting world they offer.
