Jay Kay clears out his car collection
Seven beautiful cars are being offered up for sale by Silverstone Auctions at the NEC Classic Motor Show on 10th and 11th November 2018. These cars were part of Jamiroquai front man, Jay Kay's personal collection. Jay Kay is renown for his love of cars, and has had some rather stunning motors in his music videos. Here's what he's selling:
1. McLaren 675LT 2016
Leading Jay's collection is the rare 2016 McLaren 675 LT. This car has over £50,000 worth of optional extras, which were courtesy of McLaren Special Vehicle Operations (MSO). This McLaren is finished in a Chicane Grey with a grey and orange interior. This car is expected to fetch anywhere from £230,000-£280,000 which is 'space cowboy' money.
2. BMW 850 CSI Manual 1996
Next up is the ultra-rare BMW 850 CSI Manual. This particular model only has 12,777 miles on the clock. Under the bonnet is a 5.5L V12 engine that produces 380 horsepower. This car is one of only 138 in the UK, and has an all black interior. This delight is estimated to sell at around £80,000-£100,000. The successful bidder would surely be on 'cloud nine' after collecting this car.
3. Porsche 911 (991) Targa 4S 2015
Also up for sale is a 2015 Porsche 911 (991) Targa 4S. This Porsche is finished in Night Blue Metallic and has a black leather interior which is probably enough to make anyone feel like a 'cosmic girl'. Also included is a sea of optional extras, and just 11,600 miles on the clock. This car is estimated to sell at £75,000-£85,000.
4. BMW M3 E30 Johnny Cecotto Ltd Edition 1989
This rare M3 was built to celebrate Jonny Cecotto's 1988 European Touring Car Championship Victory. This German beauty is finished in Nogaro Silver and has a black interior that features red and blue coloured inserts that are guaranteed to 'blow your mind'. It's only covered 18,000 miles and is expected to sell from around £70,000-£80,000.
5. Ford Mustang 390GT Fastback ‘Bullitt’ 1967
Arguably one of the most iconic cars ever built, this Ford Mustang 390GT Fastback is estimated to sell anywhere from £58,000-£68,000. It's finished in Highland Green, which is accurate to the legendary movie 'Bullitt' which was made famous by Steve McQueen. Under the bonnet is 6.4 litres of V8 'canned heat'. What more do you want?
6. Mercedes-Benz 300SL 1989
This classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107) is estimated to fetch from £30,000-£35,000 at auction. It's only covered 54,000 miles and is said to have a good maintenance history. This classic car is finished in Thistle Green and has a matching interior. Anyone looking to drive a classic motor over 'seven days in sunny June' should look no further.
7. Volvo 850R Sport-Wagon 1996
And last but not least is the Volvo 850R Sport-Wagon. This car was originally supplied to Japan and was imported to the UK last year. It's finished in Dark Olive Pearl with a charcoal interior. This rare hot-estate has only done 41,000 miles and is expected to sell from £15,000-£18,000.
So, there you have it. Jay Kay is getting rid of some absolute automotive treats. Personally, I think it's 'virtual insanity' (sorry!) if you ask me, I'd struggle to part with any of these.
