Lamborghini Diablo VT, Porsche 997 GT3 RS, C8 Corvette Stingray

Launched in 2019, British online auction house Collecting Cars have rapidly expanded to their operation across the globe, including right here in Australia.

The latest addition to their auction schedule is Supercar Sunday, which does exactly what it says on the tin. The auctioneers handpick a bunch of supercars from all over the world, with the auction wrapping up on Sunday 20 March.

With 42 supercars lining up for this very first Supercar Sunday, we decided to cherry-pick our favourites for your enjoyment.

All the top bid figures quoted are accurate at the time writing and don’t account for any buyers premiums or fees.

Our first victim is this 1992 Ferrari 512 TR, which is currently owned by Top Gear host and renowned motoring journalist Chris Harris.

In the advert Chris describes the car as ‘not quite perfect, but plenty good enough’. The car has 66,000 miles on the clock and being a RHD 512 TR makes it a bit of a rare bird. The car is located in the UK, with bidding at £81,000 (AU$144,190).

Just saying ‘Lamborghini Diablo’ and hearing the way it rolls off of your tongue makes you want to own one, and that’s before you even lay eyes on the damn thing.

With only 200 roadsters built and just 30 of those being RHD, it’s rare even for a raging bull. It’s still living in the UK at the time of sale, with a top bid of £175,000 (AU$311,449).

Even though Aussie deliveries of the C8 Corvette Stingray have only just started to be filled, one has already popped up for auction locally in the hopes of tempting a buyer looking to jump the queue.

Bidding is already up to AU$205,000, which is the best part of AU$50K more than the base asking price for a C8 from GMSV.

There’s a smattering of Porsches in this supercar auction, but our favourite of the lot would have to be this 2007 997 GT3 RS.

It’s a former press car, which means it’s spent the time in the hands of many great names including the German rally driver and Porsche afficionado Walter Röhrl.

The left-hook green machine is located in Germany, with a top bid of €115,000 (AU$172,148).

The Merdeces-Benz SLR McLaren barely needs any introduction, as even to this day it’s still considered one of the behemoths of the supercar world.

The car is now located in England, with a current top bid of £213,000 (AU$318,848).

We couldn’t do a supercar auction story without mentioning another Ferrari, and this isn’t any normal F430.

The F430 Challenge cars were originally built for Ferrari’s one make racing series and were never built for road use.

Rules are made to be broken though, and this Challenge-built car underwent a conversion to a road-legal status around five years ago. Being a Challenge car means this F430 has centrelock BBS wheels, a six-speed ‘F1’ automated manual gearbox and a mechanical locking differential behind the 4.3-litre V8.

The car is located in the UK where is has been complied for road use, with a current bid of just £42,500 (AU$75,637).

How about an Audi R8 GT, one of just 333 built?
