If you’re familiar with Bicester Heritage, then you’ll be aware of the ‘themed’ Assembly events that take place throughout the year. As the organisation’s official auction partner, Collecting Cars will be co-hosting a brand-new event in the series later this year on Sunday 26 November – Noughties November.

Aiming to reflect a fantastic cross-section of cars and bikes from 2000 to 2009, this Assembly is set to be a modern classic bonanza, especially considering some of the iconic cars revealed during that decade.

The Noughties saw the launch of the Porsche 996 GT3 RS and 996 GT2, as well as the start of the Cayman nameplate; while from Maranello came the 360 Challenge Stradale and 430 Scuderia, not to mention the sensational Enzo and glorious GT cars in the 575M and 612 Scaglietti.

Mercedes-Benz launched the SLR with McLaren, the SL55 AMG, and the riotous CLK 63 AMG Black Series. Over in Munich, BMW created the superb E46-generation M3, the V10-engined E60 M5, the retro-style Z8, and the lauded Z4 M.

After a brief flirtation with BMW, the Noughties was also the decade that saw James Bond put back into a new Aston Martin with the Vanquish in ‘Die Another Day’, while the introduction of the DB9 marked the brand’s first foray into the advanced ‘VH’ chassis platform. Up in Crewe, VW took the reins at Bentley and introduced the impressive Continental GT, while out of France came the record-shattering Bugatti Veyron.

At the more affordable end of the spectrum, the post-millennium period saw the debuts of some hugely popular enthusiast cars, including the Honda S2000, Mk5 VW Golf GTI, Renault Clio V6, and the second generation Lotus Elise (which also spawned the impressive Vauxhall VX220).

This new event in Bicester Heritage’s Assembly calendar will take place on Sunday 26 November in Hangar 113, and tickets are now available from their website Shop now.

The display area will be limited to vehicles first registered from 1 January 2000 to 31 December 2009 inclusive, and it is set to showcase an eclectic mix of Noughties style, performance, and practicality. 

The Collecting Cars team will be in attendance to welcome enthusiasts to this exciting new Noughties November Assembly, so visit our stand on the day if you want to talk about buying, selling or bidding! You can also register on the platform to join more than 100,000 other collectors around the world.
