Ray’s car is for sale
A 1960 Bentley S2 owned by Kinks singer/songwriter Sir Ray Davies will go under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions’sale this Saturday, May 13.
The car was bought by Sir Ray in 1970 after the Kinks’single Lola went to Number 1 in the charts.
He was persuaded by his family to invest in a big car, unusual for him as he didn’t actually drive at the time, in fact he didn’t start driving until he was 44.
The Bentley has been in long-term storage since 1991 and now requires some restoration work. It is offered for auction direct from the ownership of Sir Ray, estimated at between £25,000 and £30,000.
