Shelby Series 1 to lead Bonhams auction

Bonhams is set to auction Carroll Shelby’s personal car collection at the upcoming Greenwich Concours d’Elegance Auction between the 1st – 3rdJune 2018. The 23 strong collection will be headlined by a Shelby Series 1 in immaculate condition, with just over 10,000 miles on the clock.

Designed and built by Shelby, this Series 1 is number one of just 249 in existence and it features a 4-litre V8 with a prototype supercharger that later became a $20,000 additional option. With the supercharger, this car generates 600bhp and 530lb ft. of torque. Due to the lightweight nature of the vehicle, as well as the carbonfibre body panels, the Series 1 will sprint from 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds.

Given the history of this car, as well as the immaculate condition and low mileage, this car is expected to fetch between £74,000 and £93,000.
