Rare 1974 Holden Torana L34 SL/R 5000 listed for sale, more than $750,000 expected

A rare 1974 Holden Torana L34 SL/R 5000 has been listed for sale, with price expectations "in excess of $750,000." The high-performance L34 variant was a homologation special introduced by Holden two years after scrapping the originally planned V8-powered Torana during the infamous "supercar scare" of 1972. It went on to win the Bathurst 1000 on two occasions. This example is one of just 263 built.

This 1981 Toyota HiLux costs more than a new model

An immaculate 1981 Toyota HiLux is being advertised for an astronomical $USD50,000 – the equivalent of $AUD73,000 – in the US, in yet another example of classic Japanese cars starting to fetch big dollars. By comparison, the current 2020 Toyota HiLux range tops out at $62,990 drive-away for a Rugged X or Rogue edition. The 1981 Toyota HiLux Trekker is regarded as the “forerunner to the 4Runner” because its ute tub was converted to carry passengers, and fitted with seats and carpet lining.

Porsche Type 64: Auction blunder sees historic racer unsold at Monterey

The auction of a car designed by Ferdinand Porsche in Nazi Germany resulted in what could be politely described as a snafu or, in the words of one auction patron, a “massive f*** up”. The 1939 Type 64 – retroactively and somewhat controversially referred to as a Porsche – failed to find a buyer at the RM Sotheby’s auction in Monterey, California over the weekend, according to Bloomberg.
