Goodwood Auctions - great for classics, ominous for Lotus


Bonhams' Goodwood auction showed that the great classic cars are achieving great prices – but apparently no-one is interested in Lotus's recent history.

A Ferrari Daytona Spider made £225,000 (13% above top estimate) and an Aston Martin DB6 Convertible made £404,700 (also 13% above top estimate). However, most modern Lotus models either failed to sell or sold below the bottom estimate.
