INTERNATIONAL auctioneers Coys return to their birthplace with an auction of 70 fine historic automobiles at the Olympia Historic Automobile Fair & Auction, a new ultra-luxury and lifestyle event in the Olympia London, on February 18.

The auction features some of the most beautiful Ferraris ever produced, including a 1968 Ferrari 330GTC Berlinetta (estimated at £450,000 – £500,000), a 1972 Ferrari Dino 246 GT with only 35,000 miles on the clock (£280,000 – £300,000), a 1978 Ferrari 308 GTB once owned by the founding editor of Car magazine Doug Blain (£65,000 – £75,000) and a 1964 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series 1 (£200,000 – £240,000).

A 1936 Lagonda LG45 ‘Razor Edge’ Saloon by Freestone & Webb with a fascinating history is returning to Olympia 81 years after its debut at the Motor Show in 1936.

The auction features a 1954 Jaguar XK120 Roadster (£90,000 – £110,000), a 1955 MG TF 1500 (£22,000 – £28,000), 1937 Rolls Royce Phantom III by Park Ward formerly from the Collection of Sir James Cayzer (£115,000 – £125,000), a 1962 Bentley S2 Continental Coupe (£220,000 – £250,000), a 1951 Bentley Mark VI – Syd Lawrence “SL01” Special (£90,000 – £110,000) and one of only two surviving 1957 BMW 503 Coupe (£120,000 – £140,000).

A 2013 Vauxhall Astra like no other will be auctioned to raise funds for BEN, the Automotive Industry Charity. The car was driven in the BBC Top Gear’s ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car’ in the last season of the Clarkson-Hammond-May era. The Astra has covered less than 3,000 miles from new at the hands of over 20 famous actors, singers and comedians, including AC/DC’s Brian Johnson, Hugh Jackman, Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Benedict Cumberbatch and comedian Jimmy Carr, amongst others. The car will be sold with no reserve.

Other important cars going under the hammer include a rare right-hand-drive 1958 Mercedes-Benz 190SL (£100,000-£120,000), a 1963 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Fixed Head Coupe (£90,000 – £110,000), a 1967 Mercedes 250SL (£30,000 – £40,000), a 1938 Mercedes-Benz 230 Saloon – Genuine rare RHD (£130,000-£160,000), a 1974 Jensen Interceptor Convertible – 26,000 miles from new (£40,000- £50,000) and a 1955 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe (no reserve)

Alongside the auction, the Fair will be packed with inspiring features, providing visitors with a wealth of information and guidance on the world of historic automobiles.
