Earlier this month a few very rare cars surfaced in South Africa due to be privately auctioned. The cars included a Pagani Zonda C12, a Koenigsegg CCX, a Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster with a custom body kit, a Gemballa Porsche Cayenne, a Novitec Ferrari F430, a Rolls Royce Ghost and a few others.
The Zonda C12 has a custom wrap on it but is silver underneath it. The car has 9353km. The Koenigsegg CCX only has 7752km on it. Both these cars are extremely rare with each respective brand only having only one other car in the country. These cars have been in storage for at least 5 years and were sold under the Tax Administration Act to pay back previous liabilities that the owners had to the government.
The auction was completed last week and they have said that although finally processing is still ongoing they expect to receive a total of R15 million. This is still quite low for all the cars sold.
Marc Rudman from MR Photography was able to make it to the viewing of the cars and get a few pictures in between all the people that were there.
Hopefully we will start seeing the cars out and about in the next few months if they were bought locally.
Many thanks to Marc Rudman for the photo's.
