Next month’s Bonhams sale at the Revival meeting was already set to serve up its usual broad selection of highly desirable motor cars, but today’s news might just crank the interest up several notches.

Goodwood regular, storied car collector and the next presenter of Top Gear Chris Evans is to sell no fewer than 13 cars from his collection, six of them Ferraris. According to Bonhams’ Director of Motor Cars, Sholto Gilbertson, Mr Evans is ‘refreshing his collection’ so news of this sale might be followed-up after the Revival sale with news of some acquisitions to take up the freshly-available space in his collection.

The cars to be sold and their estimates areas follows: 

Ferrari 275GTS Spyder- £1.3 million – 1.6 million

On their own, those lots would make for a highly significant auction. As part of a sale which will also include a Porsche 908, Aston Martin DB5 Convertible, Ferrari F40, Keith Richard’s former Bentley S3 Flying Spur and a pair of Scarab Formula One racers (to name just a few of the other lots), Bonhams’ Revival sale will now likely destination for a number of buyers currently monitoring the many auctions taking place at Car Week in Monterey, California.

As with last year’s sale, GRR will be granted an exclusive close-up of Bonhams’ Revival sale lots once they’re all here and under one roof. Stay Tuned!
