Spectacular lots up for auction
ROYALTY, government, sport and show business personalities’ cars will feature in a 100 Car Spectacular auction by international car auctioneers COYS at the London Classic Car Show.
A 1995 Lotus Elan M100 S2 which was accepted on behalf of the Prince’s Trust by Prince Charles could fetch up to £20,000. The car was produced to celebrate the 50,000th car to come out of the Lotus factory since 1948.
A 1967 Vanden Plas Princess R once used by the former Prime Minister Harold Wilson is also up for grabs. The car was supplied in black livery with gold coachlines and comes with a good history file and new MOT. It is estimated to fetch between £15,000 and £20,000.
Another star studded car listed for the auction is a 2007 Range Rover Sport owned by David Beckham. It was designed and upgraded at a cost of £100,000 by Khan Design and has a 4.2-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine and is estimated to go for £30,000- £35,000.
Another model at this weekend’s event is a Mark IV Mini 1000 which was purchased new by Bob Willis for his wife Cilla Black.
The Mini was treated to an extensive upgrade by Wood & Pickett of Abbey Road which included solid black paintwork, extended wheel arches, a complete Margrave leather interior and walnut dashboard. It has been recently restored and is in excellent condition and is estimated at £30,000- £40,000.
