Record-breaking Audi Quattro Turbo doubles auction estimate

A 1991 Audi Quattro Turbo 20v has broken auction records, fetching £72,050 - double its pre-sale estimate.

The transaction happened at a packed Warwickshire exhibition centre during the Classic Car Auctions September Sale.

Huge crowds turned out for one of the biggest one-day classic car sales of the year, with around £2m changing hands in five hours.

The raucous applause for the Audi was repeated when a 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Supersport racked up the highest price of the day at £99,000 including premium, after a series of bids pushed it almost £40,000 beyond its lower estimate.

A 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S in Silver Rose started with a bid £5,000 above its lower estimate and sold for £34,100 after brisk bidding.
