Why Is Top Gear Host Chris Evans Selling All His Cars?

Auction

This doesn’t look good…

New "Top Gear" host Chris Evans has stirred up some serious controversy. Some love him and are happy he is bringing the show back, and others hate him and say that he is not a worthy successor to the legendary trio of Clarkson, Hammond and May. This most recent piece of news may give Evans some more bad publicity: the auctioning of his prized car collection. After all, a true car enthusiast keeps their car collection for as long as possible. Heck, some collectors even have their first car as a piece of memorabilia.

Since Chris Evans is portrayed as a total car nut, it was surprising when he announced the sale. His collection is a bit legendary in the UK, and will go for a reported $10 million. The collection will be for sale by Bonhams Goodwood Revival in September. Why is Evans doing this? Does he really need more cash? To be fair, it isn’t his entire car collection, just some of the most exclusive models. Want to buy one? The cars included and their prices are as follows: 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/6C Alloy to sell between $2.9 million and $3.2 million, a 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder to sell between $2.5 and $2.9 million and a 1963 Ferrari 250 GT/L Lusso to sell between $1.6 and $2 million.
