Talacrest buys collection of 27 rare cars

John Collins of Talacrest (the world renowned Ferrari specialist) just bought a vast private car collection of 27 (classic) super cars, worth about 20 million pounds. Making this one of the biggest private sales in the UK ever.

The owner collected these cars over a period of 20 years and was looking to sell the collection as a whole. Mr. Collins got word from it and decided to buy the 27 cars from some of the most iconic brands as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche

The collection includes some really exquisite cars like an Aston Martin DB5 (the ultimate 007-car), Aston Martin DB4 Zagato, Ferrari Daytona, Lamborghini Countach LP500s and a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing. Some more recently models like the Aston Martin One-77 and Mercedes-Benz Mclaren SLR 722 are also part of the collection.

Most of these cars feature low mileages and/or are restored making them even more desirable and extremely valuable. As a result most of the cars have already been sold. Wish I was one of the buyers since this collection houses a lot of my favourite classic cars …
