Classic car auction raises £20,350

A recent car auction by Classic Car Auctions (CCA) saw £20,350 raised for Mesothelioma UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.

The CCA September Sale sold 107 quality classic cars to bidders around the world with total sales exceeding £1.8 million.

The special charity lot was a 1984 Audi Quattro Turbo, which was offered as the first lot of the day. Featured on Channel 4’s Car SOS and restored by Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townsend, the Quattro was sold in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and Mesothelioma UK following the wishes of its late owner, raising £20,350 in total, including all auction fees donated by the auction house.

We’re grateful to everyone involved in the auction, and to the original owner for arranging the donation.
