Who else loves a good barn find?  Unearthing a car that’s been forgotten for decades is one of life’s coolest things to a petrolhead. 

But if you’re struggling to find a rare Ferrari or Porsche on your travels, you might want to check out your local palaces and castles…

You see, this castle in Belgium may look like an unassuming rich man’s tea room, but a week ago, 12 classic cars have been found in it!  And they haven’t seen the light of day for decades! 

So let’s take a look at the castle find cars that will be auctioned (with no reserve) at the Bonhams Spa classic auctions in May- 

 

Mercedes 300SL Roadster- Unpredictable Price

An estimated price hasn’t been predicted yet.

Launched as a convertible version of the gorgeous Gullwing, the 300SL Roadster is one of the world’s most valuable cars.  Which is why nobody has any idea of what price this thing will go for! 

Bear in mind, it’s been sitting for ages- so it could go low, or maybe high due to the rarity!   Comment what you think the most desirable of the castle find cars, will go for!

 

Rolls Royce 50hp Silver Ghost Double Phaeton-  £520,000- £690,000

Quite expensive for a second hand Roller…

Coach-built cars tend to be ultra rare, millionaires of yesteryear had an engine and chassis, and had to get it uniquely bodied to make their Rolls stand out from the crowd. 

And this castle find Rolls is expected to go for big bucks!  Twice as much as a top spec Wraith to be precise…

 

Maserati Ghibli SS- £86,000-£130,000

Pretty car, pretty cheap!

Although it didn’t quite light the candle as well as the Ferrari Daytona or Lamborghini Miura, the Ghibli was still one of the fastest cars in the world when launched in 1967.
