Rare fleet of cars turns up in Suffolk barn


A fleet of rare and exotic cars is going under the hammer after they were found gathering dust in a barn near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.

The collection of eight vehicles includes examples of some of the most luxurious and exclusive cars produced in the UK and Italy over the last 40 years and have all sat unused over the last ten years after their millionaire owner left them untouched in the barn.

The list includes two 1980s Maseratis, a Jenson, two DeTomasos and two Bentleys. It's being sold after the owner died last year. Despite spending thousands on the collection, the owner chose not to drive them, preferring to use a 2001 Nissan Patrol, which is also up for sale.
As a result, some of the cars have almost no miles on the clock - a 1989 Maserati Quattroporte shows just 960 miles on the odometer. A 1998 Bentley Continental R Mulliner Coupe is also up for sale and is expected to fetch around £40,000. It would have been bought for about £200,000brand new.

The auction is set to take place on 13 March in Bury St Edmonds, with viewings taking place on the Thursday and Friday beforehand. Take a look at the listing here.
