An Incredible Collection of Classic Cars Bought for £20m!

An Incredible Collection of Classic Cars Bought for £20m!

The collection of 27 cars worth around £20 million, were bought by a dealer and is thought to be one of the biggest sales of a private collection in British history.

The stunning collection included models from the likes of Ferrari, Mercedes, Porsche and Lamborghini, as well as, an Aston Martin One-77 – which is the British car maker’s ultimate hypercar – and a Ferrari 288 GTO, currently one of the fastest appreciating classics.

 In total, there were four Aston Martins, eleven Ferraris, one Jaguar, four Lamborghinis, five Mercedes and two Porsches.

The new owner, John Collins, who referred to the collection as an “Aladdins Cave” of cars, said that the previous owner has built up the collection over the past 20 years and when he decided to sell them  he got into contact with him as he didn’t want to sell them separately.

A number of the Ferraris are worth more than £1million,  while the vast majority of the cars have hardly been driven – with a 1982 Lamborghini LP500S having a mileage of just 500 miles and a 1965 Jaguar E-Type with just 2,605 miles on the clock.
