The Black Prince

“Ultra-rare” 1951 Invicta Black Prince to be auctioned; here is a truly astounding shooting brake complete with an incredible mascot

 

An ultimate example of 1950s luxury, a 1951 Invicta Black Prince shooting brake with coachwork by Associated Coachbuilders – that cost £3,820 new (the equivalent of £110,000, $142,000, €119,000 or درهم521,000 today) – is to be auctioned in September.

 

Featuring an all alloy 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with twin overheard camshafts, twin-plug ignition and triple SU carburetors, this automatic, dark green vehicle is just one of twelve survivors of sixteen cars made. It was actually completed after the Invicta brand ceased to exist in 1950 and finished in Sunderland as ‘MPT 850’ on 3rd November 1951.

 

Restored and upgraded in the 1980s, the car comes with “a wealth of documentation” and retains its “truly extravagant mascot of the Black Prince himself.”

 

The shooting brake will be sold by Bonhams at their Beaulieu sale on 2nd September in Hampshire. An estimate of £22,000 to £27,000 ($28,000 to $35,000, €24,000 to €28,000 or درهم104,000 to درهم128,000) has been set.

  1. It looks a bloody hearse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only has scrap value!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A load of junk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Crush it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Buy a second-hand Ferrari or Lambo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Why are you wasting time writing about this kind of nonsense? Nobody is interested and instead what I want everyone to focus on is dear Gerry and Kate McCann’s search for their beloved missing daughter Madeleine. We must FIND MADELEINE, FIND HER NOW. Support the FIND MADELEINE campaign and make up for your disgraceful lack of support for this most important matter.
