Auction Block: The Richard Hammond Car & Motorcycle Collection

Jul 26, 2021

Category: Rides

Richard Hammond may be best known for his time spent as a TV presenter on Top Gear and The Grand Tour, but these shows are hardly the extent of his automotive pursuits. In fact, he recently announced plans for a classic car restoration outfit — The Smallest Cog — that’ll be the subject of an upcoming docuseries to be aired this fall.

Well, apparently, the Hamster is deeply in need of funding, because he’ll be unloading eight vehicles from his personal collection during Silverstone’s August Classic auction. As you’d expect from the host of a car show, he’s got a pretty stacked lineup, with a number of iconic pieces both two-wheeled and four. For instance, he’s offering his 1959 Bentley S2 — a family heirloom — along with a low-mileage 1969 Porsche 911T and a 1-of-48 1999 Lotus Esprit Sport 350. What’s more, he’s parting with several motorcycles, including a highly-collectible 1977 Moto Guzzi Le Mans Mk1, a 1927 Sunbeam Model 2, as well as a limited-edition (#50 of 50) 2019 Norton Dominator 961 Street. Between the pristine condition of each vehicle and the Hammond ownership history, this is one opportunity that no auto enthusiast can ignore. The collection will cross the block on August 1st, with each lot to be sold at no reserve.
