Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay

Singer and musician Jay Kay is selling three BMWs from his extensive car collection on Saturday May 23 during Silverstone Auctions’ live online event.

The auction will start at 14:00 BST and on offer are 86 cars, a rare Harley Davidson motorbike and 13 personalised number plates.

1972 BMW 3.0 CSL (E9)

The first of car-mad Jay Kay’s BMWs is the best of its kind that Silverstone Auctions have ever seen. It is 1 of 500 1972 3.0 CSL E9s made in right-hand drive and finished in Chamonix White with 62,000 miles on the clock. This version also has, from new, the City Pack which included electric windows, additional soundproofing and full bumpers and wheel arch extensions.

The previous owner found the car in storage where it had been for a number of years and set about restoring it to its original beauty. It has a guide price of £135,000 to £155,000.

1983 BMW Alpina B9 3.5 (E28) Manual

The second BMW is an exceptionally rare right-hand drive 1983 Alpina B9 3.5 (E28) with a manual gearbox. It is thought to be one of only 18 available in this specification and one that had been carefully chosen by Jay Kay nine years ago. Guide price: £25,000 to £30,000.

1987 BMW M3 (E30) 'Competition Pack'

The last of his BMWs is a 1987 E30 which has been developed into a competition specification car. After converting it was then prepared for Jay to drive it in the Rally Isla Mallorca in March 2020 as Car Zero. Looking fabulous, it is now ready for sprints, hill climbs and stage rallies. Guide price: £48,000 to £56,000.
