Italian sports cars will also be on show on the 30th, with the high performance value shown throughout the competitive pedigrees. The superb example of the 1953 OSCA MT4 sports racing car on offer (£150,000-£175,000).

Other historic supercars to be added to the auction include the £500,000+ selection of eight classic Porsche 356 and 911 models. Earlier models of the Porsche will also be on sale, including a fully restored 1952 Porsche 356 Pre A Coupé with a £105-£115,000 price tag.

There will also be a selection of Mercedes-Benz to choose from as 24 models will be lining up on the 30th of this month. Some of the historic Mercedes that will be under the hammer include the 2008 G55 AMG Kompressor, along with the 1967 Mercedes-Benz 205SL Pagoda, both in excellent condition, with a tag of £50-65,000.

Classic Cars will be on sale throughout the day, with plenty of models for the classic car nuts to choose from, other models will include the 1982 Mk.1 VW Golf GTi at £6-8,000, a 2000 Alfa Romeo GTV Spider will also be tagged from £3.5-5,000 again in near perfect condition.
