Fancy owning Ava Gardner’s Facel Vega? Or Phil Collins’ Austin A35? If you’d like to follow in the wheel tracks of the rich and famous you might want to check out the Coys Interclassics Auction in Maastricht this weekend.

The Facel Vega Excellence supplied new to Hollywood legend Ava Gardner in September 1958 is expected to fetch upwards of £135,000. “We have had considerable interest in this car”, said Coys CEO Chris Routledge of the high performance 6.4-litre Chrysler Hemi V8-engined Facel Vega. “It is great opportunity to own one of the fastest and certainly most glamourous cars of the 1950’s.”

The 1959 Austin A35 previously owned by the Genesis frontman Phil Collins is expected to fetch a modest £6,000-£9,000 when it goes under the hammer. The car comes with registration documents, bills and correspondence to confirm the ownership.

Other automotive exotica up for grabs in the auction includes an early Maserati 3500 GT, a 1930 Packard Deluxe Eight Roadster 745, and an Arancio Orange 1967 Lamborghini Miura.
