That Top Gear now has a new lead presenter in the person of British man Chris Evans is no longer news. The man who those who know him well know that he is a certified car aficionado is about to prove how much of a car lover he is as he is set to sell 13 cars from his private collection of exotic cars.

Carscoops reports that “he will be auctioning off a number of vehicles from his collection in the Bonhams Goodwood Revival Sale, on September 12th. In fact, 13 of his sought-after, rare automobiles are already consigned to the upcoming auction block, and all of them – together – are worth at least £9,315,000. 
That’s exactly $14,546,956.

Six of the 13 cars are Ferraris, including a 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder, a 250 GT/L Lusso, and a 275
GTS Spyder. But the star of the “show”, and the most expensive car of the lot, is a mint-green 1966
Ferrari 275 GTB estimated at £2.6-2.9million ($4-$4.5million).

The car originally came in a Rosso Chiaro hue, but Evans thought a pale green paint-job suits it better, after he bought it in 2014.

Other notable lots include two high quality replicas (a Jaguar XKSS Lynx and a Ferrari 250 SWB ), a
1949 Jaguar XK120 “Alloy” Roadster, a 1970 Mercedes 280SL Pagoda, a 1958 Jaguar XK150 3.4-litre Fixed Head Coupe, a Fiat 126 Abarth and the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang replica.

There’s even a 1964 Daimler SP250 “Police Specification” Roadster which served as a high-speed
pursuit interceptor. The car’s logbook lists the first owner as the Metropolitan Police, New Scotland
Yard and it even retains the Pye police radio system and the Winkworth bell.
