Sir Jimmy Savile OBE, KCSG’s Rolls Royce Corniche

The car, a 2002 last-of-line Corniche, was purchased by Savile in 2007 and is finished in Silver Ghost with Cotswold cream leather seating with blue piping. Savile personalised the car with a gold Spirit of Ecstasy and the numberplate JS 247. The number relates to the former frequency of Radio 1. A guide price of £60,000 to £90,000 has been set.

Of the auction, Roger Perkins of JCT600, who sold the vehicle to Savile, commented:

 

“As a flamboyant show business personality, Sir Jimmy is known for his love of stylish cars and we hope that this rare vehicle with its colourful history will make a significant contribution to the funds raised for his charitable trust when it goes under the hammer. This is a really special car, not only because of its famous owner, but also because it is one of the last of the Crewe-made Rolls-Royces – we may even be tempted to put in a bid ourselves!”

 

Other lots include a 1965 BMW Isetta 300 Plus bubble car (£5,000 to £8,000) that Savile once used to transport The Duke of Edinburgh from Aylesbury station and a Ford Fiesta van (guide £3,000 to £5,000). At the lower end of the scale, bidders could purchase a tea service for £30 to £50 or a combined record turntable, CD burner, cassette player and radio by Neostar for £50 to £80.

 

Jim fixed it that all proceeds will go to charity. Even in death, this top dollar gent continues to do good.
