The Wheeler Dealers presenter is offering the vehicles for sale through Silverstone Auctions, with the bidding getting underway on 13 November.

The collection includes a Mini once used by John Cooper and a Citroen driven by Jeremy Clarkson in an episode of The Grand Tour.

“I am sad to see these cars go, but it was time for a change,” said Brewer.

“I want to consolidate my collection. Each car has its own unique story and they all deserve a new home.”

The cars going up for action at the NEC Classic Motor Show are:

This was part of the Phil Reed collection, an American enthusiast who sadly passed away – and whose sons didn’t share the same enthusiasm for cars. It was they who offered it to Brewer.

This classic Ermine White and Sherwood Green Ford Cortina Lotus underwent a full restoration in 1999. It took a full eight years and Brewer says “no expense was spared”.

This mighty Mini was actually used by John Cooper himself. Phil Reed then bought it and shipped it to California in the 1980s – before it was repatriated to the UK when Mike Brewer purchased it more than 40 years later.

This four-seat coupe “was in a sorry state a few years ago” before being fully stripped down and restored. It was actually unveiled at the 2018 NEC Classic Motor Show and has since won a concours award at the National Citroen event. Brewer says it will be seen on The Grand Tour “soon”.

2002 Ferrari 360 Spider F1

Mike Brewer says this Ferrari is an “on-the-button example”. Rarely, it’s not bright red, but finished in Tour de France Blue with a beige and blue interior. The “fabulous” car also comes with a “fantastic” history.

Mike Brewer fans who are keen to grab themselves a car with a famous owner should either visit the NEC Classic Motor Show on Saturday 13 November – or register for a Silverstone Auctions account before 1pm that day.
