Many have interesting stories behind them, including this blue 1978 Daimler Sovereign Long Wheel Base, pictured here.

With just 399 original miles on the clock it is possibly one of the most original examples available today.

Spending most of its life in a museum and then a private collection, this car has been cosseted and is absolutely immaculate. Even the black leather interior looks untouched. It has an estimate of £25,000 to £30,000.

Another interesting car also comes from 1978 – a Honda Civic five-door hatchback, which is absolutely immaculate.

Finished in period colours of Elysee Bronze paintwork with a tan vinyl and velour interior, this car has clearly been very well looked after by its only owner. It is an upcoming classic too that is a very rare sight on the roads today.

With an estimate of £5,000 to £7,000, this immaculate little car could be a great way for someone to enter the classic car scene.

A 1986 Citroen 2CV Charleston is also up for grabs. In excellent condition, this car was subject to a full-restoration in 1999 where the owner upgraded the brakes from drums to disks and improved the engine with a larger carburettor.

A cheap-to-run classic that also has the ability to drop the top on sunny days, it also looks great thanks to its rare two-tone art deco paint-scheme of brown and black.

At the other end of the spectrum is this 2004 Bentley Arnage Mulliner edition, finished in duo-tone light and dark blue paintwork and contrasting cream leather interior with walnut wood trim.

This car is believed to be a press car originally, supplied to The Times for testing, therefore coming with a huge specification.

It might not be a classic car just yet, but this amazing looking luxury saloon is bound to be one for the future.

The auction will take place on Saturday June 10 at the Classic Car Auctions June Sale at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre.
