Legendary 1935 Singer Nine TT Team Car races to £132,000

The 1935 Singer Nine TT Team Car registration AVC 484 already boasts a rich and remarkable history - and another chapter was added at H&H's sale in Derbyshire, UK, last Wednesday (July 21).

Christened the "Meistersinger" by its former owner, this Singer was also raced by the late, great Gordon Wilkins - the doyen of motor journalists who wrote about motorsport while also competing in it.

A renowned veteran of the Le Mans 24 Hours, the Ards and Donington TTs and other pre war classic events, the Singer was fully-restored to its former glory for the Ards 75th Anniversary celebrations in 2003.

"Already this year - out of 305 Singers entered in competitions, 246 gained awards, and in addition 9 Team Prizes. In the recent RAC Rally a Singer '9' gained more marks than any other car. And this month, in the gruelling Round-the-Houses Motor Car Race at Bray, Ireland, the Singer 'Nines' won the Feighery Cup, the Team Prize and were the only Team to finish the course. And the 1934 Australian Grand Prix has been won outright by a Singer" - a Singer advertisement from May 1934

In the end, the singer sold for way above its estimated price at H&H's Buxton sale, racing all the way to £132,000.
