The highlight has to be a fabulous ‘on the button’ low-mileage 1991 Jaguar XJ220, estimated at between £300,000 and £350,000.
It was hand-built by TWR Jaguar in Oxford in 1991 before being exported to Brunei by special order of the Royal Family. The car remained as part of the world-renowned, royal car collection until 2002 when it returned to the UK.

A fantastic selection of celebrity-owned cars are also on offer, like a 1966 Lotus Elan S2 formerly owned by Peter Sellers, estimated at £45,000 to £50,000; and a 1973 Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 once owned by boxing legend Henry Cooper, offered at no reserve.
A left-hand drive 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia, estimated at £180,000 to £220,000, has covered just over 400km from new and is presented in exemplary condition throughout. Supplied with its original handbooks, tool kit and car cover, it was first registered in 2009 in Switzerland. Finished in the highly desirable colour of Grigio Medio 791, the car is offered for public sale for the first time.
For fast Ford fans there is a fantastic 1985 Ford Escort RS Turbo Series I, offered at no reserve. It has covered only 5,568 miles from new in the hands of one registered keeper. It has never been restored or modified and is preserved in factory fresh condition.
