Want to have an exclusive Lamborghini? Then you should not search in current range. You might want to look back at a very exclusive classic. Cars owned by rock musicians Sir Rod Stewart and Adam Clayton from U2 will be among 60 classics that will go under the hammer at an auction run by Coys at The Classic & Sports Car Show in London.
Among them is a special Lamborghini Miura P400 S built in 1971 and delivered new to Maggie May singer Stewart, who was knighted just this month.
It carries an estimate of between £800-900,000 at the show’s inaugural auction, which takes place at 3pm on Saturday 29th October in the Panorama Room at Alexandra Palace.
The musical theme continues with the offering of a 1972 Maserati Ghibli 4.9SS formerly owned by U2 bassist Clayton. One of only eight right-hand drive versions of this model, it is expected to fetch between £240-280,000.
Other highlights of the sale include a 1953 Jaguar XK120 Drophead Coupe carrying an estimate of £70-80,000; a RHD 1974 Ferrari 246 GT E Series with coachwork by Scaglietti (£280-325,000); a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 with one owner from new (£525-625,000); two Ferrari 512 BBs, including the 1977 London Motor Show car (£225-275,000); and a veteran campaigner in club and historic motor racing, a Marcos 1800 GT which among its many accolades collected the 1981 and ’84 HSCC Classic and Sportscar titles in the hands of Roger Ealand.
