Following the Collectors’ Motor Cars and Automobilia sale that took place in Oxford on Saturday, Bonhams was delighted to announce that 100% of the Motor Cars sold, realising a total £1.29 million.

Selling for £101,180 against a presale estimate of £40,000 60,000, the top lot of the sale was a 1961 Ferrari 250GTE 2+2 Series 1 Coupé barn find that belonged to the Oscar winning producer Agostino De Laurentiis, who was responsible for over 150 films including Barbarella and King Kong.

Having had only a few owners since new, the 250 GTE was offered by the family of the late owner who bought the car in 1967.

Another top seller was a red 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2-Litre Roadster that belonged to Sir Elton (seen below). It realised £82,140.

According to his fleet manager, Elton and his staff referred to the E-Type as OK Elton due to its number plate OKE 1, which was carried throughout his ownership and was sold with the automobile.
