Cars International are selling a collection of cars and memorabilia from the Jordan Grand Prix Team, with all proceeds going to good causes the CLIC sargent and Amber Foundation.
The collection includes Michael Schumacher's car, the first Jordan Grand Prix car ever built, chassis number 01 and the first Grand Prix winning Jordan chassis 198. This car was driven to victory by Damon Hill ahead of team mate Ralf Schumacher in the 1998 Belgium Grand Prix and comes complete with the Constructor’s World Championship trophy won on that historic day, as well as Damon’s race suit and his helmet.
We don't feature many modern cars but this one stands out, I noticed recently SLS models now dropping below the £100K price bracket. This car surely is set to be a future classic?
The original SLS 's famously finished 2nd and 4th in the 1952 Mille Miglia and won the Le Mans 24hr. An iconic 200 mph car, I remember them whizzing by in the 2008 Mille Miglia when James Martin and I were broken down at the side of the road!
