Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2 DJ, Top Gear presenter and renowned collector of beautiful cars is now selling some of his prized metal.
If you haven’t heard of Chris Evans then your cave might be having some technical difficulties at the moment or you just haven’t been on the internet for a while. Either way, the mogul has recently been plastered across newspapers and the world wide web after signing a contract with the BBC to present the new series of Top Gear.
Chris was seen as one of the few suitable candidates to present the fabled car show due to his deep rooted love of cars and his huge collection of stunning motors consisting of Ferraris, Jaguars and other luxurious marques we all know and love. Not only is the collection timeless and stunning, some of it is also for sale!
Timeless and Stunning
While Evans is expected to make around £10 Million from 13 of his most prized cars, there will be 140 other cars sold separately with the funds going to Children in Need, a charity that he has supported for many years.
The cars will be sold at the September 12th Bonhams’ Goodwood Revival sale in Sussex which attracts enthusiasts from all over the UK.
Chris’s lot will feature some seriously luxurious and rare motors such as his stunning 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB and the 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider. He is even selling his 1936 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Replica.
