Classics Central is a classic motor car auction company founded and run by British-Australian Justin Lazic:  auctioneer and classic car enthusiast.  Justin is a member of several owners clubs including the Mercedes-Benz Owners Club, BMW Car Club, Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club and American Auto Club of the UK.

Justin’s passion for classic motor cars is well known throughout the UK and with many years of classic car ownership and restoration behind him, in addition to significant media exposure, he is well placed to understand the “magic” required to connect motivated buyers with motivated sellers of quality and collectible motor cars.
