The face of Jamiroquai, Jay Kay is no ordinary celebrity as he also happens to be one of the biggest petrolheads in the UK. He is best known for his Ferraris which have included an Enzo, LaFerrari, F12 TDF, and a particularly stunning 275 GTB/4.

However, his alliances don't just lie with Ferrari as he also has some other beautiful pieces of kit, among them is his BMW 3.0L CSL which has been fully resorted and is currently up for grabs with Silverstone Auctions.

Jay Kay has owned this particular BMW for 13 years now, but has now decided to part ways with it. This is a matching-numbers car with an excellent history. His example is number 400 out of 500 right-hand drive UK cars ever produced and according to reports, just 1,039 examples were ever made.

He is the sixth owner of the car and the person before him changed the paint from its original yellow to a more traditional BMW Diamond Schwartz, but has since been changed to BMW Polaris Metallic.

The car has also gone through a complete restoration and now has high-compression Mahle pistons, a Schrick cam and timing chain, new Bilstein springs and dampers, and a set of very rare Alpina wheels.

With all the money Jay Kay spent on this wonderful car, it is expected to sell for around £115,000.

Would you buy this?

  • Apparently he sold his classic VW split screen camper that he had only had for 5 months. But the star of this Auction I think was the Only Fools and Horses Reliant Regal Supervan that was one of a few used in the TV series which made £36,000

  • If I could I would, but I’d rather get a fixer upper and restore.

  • It didn't sell in the auction (high bid £88,000) at the weekend which would suggest Jay Kay is asking too much for it.

  • Too bad the steering wheel is on the wrong side. :P
