Two classic cars formerly owned by Sir Jimmy Savile will go under the auctioneer's hammer later this month.

A Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible and the late TV personality's famous yellow BMW Isetta bubble car will be sold by Dreweatts at a charity auction in Leeds on July 30th.

The two vehicles belong to a collection of 550 items that were left to be auctioned for the Sir Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust when the former presenter and DJ died at the age of 84 in October last year.

One of only nine built in righthand drive, the 2002 Rolls-Royce Corniche is expected to fetch between £60,000 and £90,000.

It is one of the 'Last of Line' models produced by Rolls-Royce to commemorate the end of 56 years of production at its Crewe factory.

The BMW Isetta, which was purchased by Sir Jimmy in 1965, features a roof-mounted orange warning light fitted by the owner.
