Last week the Bridge Classic Cars team loaded up our 1995 Dodge Viper RT/10 and headed out to the H&H Auctions at the Imperial War Museum Duxford.

Although the Viper was entered into the auction, it also gave the team a chance to look around this amazing venue and the incredible machinery on display waiting to head over the auction block. Everything from the remnants of a very rare AC Ace to a stunning Jaguar C Type, an Audi Quattro Rally Car to a new Lamborghini Aventador.

The cars on display were truly breathtaking and all displayed inside the former RAF hangar, like a giant version of our own secure storage facility, The Hangar. There was something for everyone at the H&H Auctions, but the car that caught our eye was the 1990 Porsche 944 Turbo.

As the day progressed and the proceedings began, the cars crossed the auction block one by one. Some amazing machinery was sold that day like the Bentley Speed 6 which sold for £300,000+ and the stunning Austin Healey 3000 nearly identical to our own Big Healey for sale on MyClassics.

When the time came for the Porsche to be sold, we had to get hold of it. This beautiful example finished in Guards Red with recent work carried out and a remap of the ECU generously adding more power to the turbocharged engine.

Unfortunately, our 1995 Dodge Viper RT/10 didn’t sell. But, it just means it’s waiting to go to the right home.

As the hammer fell, we had won the bidding. So at the end of the day, we loaded up our new 944 Turbo into our trailer to bring it home to our Suffolk HQ.
