Round 2: DVLA Personalised Registrations will be Auctioning McLaren 650S Next
AUTO CENTRAL, UK -- July 9, 2014: Six weeks after auctioning the personalised registration MCL 650S to reflect the McLaren 650S supercar, the DVLA is offering the perfect follow up with 650 S.
The registration, which has a reserve of £3,500, is among 1,500 that will go under the hammer during the Agency’s three day summer auction which gets underway at the Williams Formula One team’s factory on Wednesday, July 16.
Clearly the connotations towards the £200,000 McLaren 650S supercar aided in the sale of MCL 650S, with the gavel finally coming down after a titanic tussle for a supercar sum totalling £16,000.
Jody Davies, DVLA Personalised Registrations’ Events Manager, said: “We were astounded by the interest and the battle that ensued around MCL 650S during our most recent auction. Who knows, 650 S could prove equally as exciting.”
Visitors to the three-day event will be given access to Williams’ museum displaying arguably the biggest collection of Grand Prix cars under one roof. The private collection belonging to F1 legends Frank Williams and Patrick Head is normally kept behind closed doors with only the privileged being allowed in.
The priceless gathering chronicles Williams’ F1 involvement starting with the team’s first ever car, driven by Alan Jones, during the late 1970s. Others notable machines include the ground-breaking six-wheeler banned by the authorities for being too fast in 1980 and FW14 – the car which powered Nigel Mansell to his record-breaking F1 Championship crown standing alongside those driven by Alain Prost, Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve, David Coultard and, of course, the late, great, Ayrton Senna.
