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.
