A collection of seven very special cars will be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions from the highly exclusive personal garage of Jamiroquai front man, Jay Kay, at the NEC Classic Motor Show Sale on 10th and 11th November.
Leading the Jay Kay Collection is an incredible 2016 McLaren 675 LT, estimated at £230,000 to £280,000. One of only 500 cars built, the McLaren features over £50,000 worth of optional extras courtesy of McLaren Special Vehicle Operations (MSO) and is finished in a tasteful shade of Chicane Grey with a grey and orange interior.
“These cars from the Jay Kay collection offer something very special in terms of variety, rarity and quality,” says Harry Whale, classic car specialist at Silverstone Auctions. “These carefully selected cars from Jay Kay’s collection offer everything from classic American Muscle to Swedish homologation specials. Each car has a significant selling point that makes them very interesting, be it low mileage, rarity or a desirable selection of options fitted. We’re delighted to have been entrusted with the sale of this collection of cars. It presents a fantastic opportunity for bidders at our NEC Classic Motor Show Sale”.
Also on offer in the Jay Kay Collection is a rare 1996 BMW 850 CSI Manual with only 12,777 recorded miles. Estimated at £80,000 to £100,000, it’s powered by a 5.5 litre V12 engine delivering 380bhp and 402 lb/ft of torque. Finished in the aptly named Cosmos Black with a black leather interior, it is one of only 138 UK supplied cars.
A 2015 Porsche 911 (991) Targa 4S, finished in Night Blue Metallic with a black leather interior which has covered just 11,600 miles will also be a part of the sale. Estimated at £75,000 to £85,000, it has been fitted with numerous options including a Bose Surround sound system, Sport Chrono package, sports exhaust system, reversing camera and a tracking system.
Another BMW on offer is a rare 1989 M3 E30 Johnny Cecotto Ltd Edition, estimated at £70,000 to £85,000. Built to celebrate Johnny Cecotto’s 1988 European Touring Car Championship victory, the M3 is finished in Nogaro Silver with a black leather interior with red and blue coloured inserts. It has covered just 18,000 miles and is one of only 505 Limited Editions built.
Perfect for music and film fans alike is a 1967 Ford Mustang 390GT Fastback ‘Bullitt’ estimated at £58,000 to £68,000. Finished in the movie correct Highland Green Metallic with a blacked out grill and Torque Thrust wheels, the Mustang is powered by a professionally built 390ci (6.4 litre) V8 engine.
“Our team has a great deal of experience auctioning celebrity cars. All these cars are special and hard to find in their own right, so when you add the celebrity provenance they really do stand out in the market place,” concludes Harry.
A classic Mercedes on offer in the collection is estimated at £30,000 to £35,000. The 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300SL (R107) on offer is delightfully finished in Thistle Green Metallic with a matching interior and factory hardtop. Having covered just 54,000 miles, the car offers good maintenance history and according to Jay Kay drives smoothly and extremely well.
The final car of the collection is a 1996 Volvo 850R Sport-Wagon, estimated at £15,000 to £18,000. The car was originally supplied to Japan but was imported to the UK in 2017. Finished in Dark Olive Pearl with a Charcoal and Amaretta interior, the car has covered just 41,000 miles and presents an exciting opportunity to purchase one of the rarer homologation specials out there today.
