The Jamiroquai frontman is auctioning off part of his collection of European exotics.
Rock stars who've "made it" have been known to spend their newfound millions on cars – high-end exotics especially. But few have embraced supercars quite as completely as Jay Kay has. Now he's selling a few, and his loss could be your gain.
At its upcoming sale in London a month-and-a-half from now, Bonhams will auction three of the Jamiroquai frontman's cars, each of them valued close to a million bucks. And if we had the cash on hand, we'd be very tempted to place a bid or two, but we'd be hard-pressed to choose between them.
Not the least of Jay Kay's wheels up for grabs is also the newest: a 2016 Ferrari F12 TdF – the hardcore version of the F12 Berlinetta that preceded today's 812 Superfast. It's one of only 799 built, and was delivered in right-hand-drive configuration for countries like the UK, Australia, and Japan (to name just a few). It looks rather striking in dark grey with black racing stripes and a dark brown Alcantara and leather interior, and with just 895 miles on the clock, is estimated to sell for between $850,000 and $940,000.
Even more exotic is Jay's 2004 Porsche Carrera GT, in the popular combination of silver over dark brown. The ten-cylinder supercar – easily among Zuffenhausen's finest – has just 2,400 miles on it, and is valued at $830-960k.
More valuable still is a rare 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight coupe, painted a vibrant orange. One of just 200 made, the 2.7 Lightweight is among the most coveted of classic Porsches, and is expected to bring in between $960k and $1.1 million when the gavel drops at Bonhams' New Bond Street headquarters on December 7.
