Other collectables that represent realistic opportunities for first time bidders include a rare 1967 Riley Elf, estimated at between £3,500 - £4,500, and a 1977 Triumph Stag bearing a recent engine rebuild, estimated at £6,000 - £8,000.

Richer bidders wanting to show their generosity will have the chance to bid for a 2005 Ford GT with a 0-60mph in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 212 mph. It has been estimated at between £115,000 - £125,000.
