The New "Top Gear" Host is Selling Cars at Goodwood
Jeremy Clarkson is out and Chris Evans is in on Top Gear, for at least the next three years. Now Evans is using his celebrity to raise money for charity and clean out his large garage at the same time. He is selling 13 cars and a collection of automobile memorabilia at Bonham's Goodwood Revival Sale in September. The lot of cars includes some very pricey vehicles, with pre-auction estimates valuing several Ferraris valued at over $1 million each. These include a 1966 275 GTB/6C, 1971 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider, 1963 250 GT/Lusso, and 1965 275 GTS Spyder. RELATED: See images of the 1966 Ferrari 275 GTS
According to Classic Cars, other cars going up for auction include a 1949 Jaguar XK120 Alloy roadster, 1967 Jaguar XKSS Lynx, a replica of the 1936 Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a 1983 Fiat 127 Abarth, and a 1964 Daimler Dart Police Car SP250. There will be nearly 150 lots from Evans in the auction, including both cars and memorabilia.

Proceeds from the cars are for Evans, but proceeds from the memorabilia will not be going into the Top Gear host's pockets. All proceeds from those sales will be donated to the BBC charity Children in Need. The auction is scheduled for September 12th, which should be just enough time to remortgage your house and bid on one of Evans' cars.
