A Ferrari 328 GTS, 1989 belongs to Chris Evans will be one of the protagonists of the ‘Auction of the Barons’ at Sandown Park, near London. The 328 GTS is one of the latest models with ABS. In addition, it has only traveled 40,000 kilometers and has ten formal reviews which cost Evans about 42,000 euros, which is the estimated price in the bid.
Another wonder is a Riley Elf in 1969 with 91,000 miles and has had only one owner. The Mini ‘prepared’ and ass has its own history: the early 70′s were stolen in front of the house owner and the same thieves used it to flee after an armed robbery.

Those of us who grew up in the 80′s remember an almost beardless Tom Cruise in the film that launched him to stardom, Risky Business, a film of 1983, which became the overnight in a successful businessman during a trip of their parents.
The car I drove in the movie was a Porsche 928, 1979 and now known to be auctioned in July by Profiles in History. The car to be auctioned is one of the four used in the Warner Bros., which helped launch the career of Cruise.

Known as the Sea Lion is more than a collection of pieces of brushed aluminum and stainless steel that meets the eye.
