An ICONIC sports car owned and specially modified by an F1 cult hero could be yours.
The 1998 Nissan Skyline up for auction previously belonged to Formula 1 driver Johnny Herbert and was modernized by him.
The former Sky expert highly sought-after “Series 3”which has only covered 45,000 miles, has a guide price of between £58,000 and £68,000.
The sales description states: “Until April 1998 it was exported from Japan to the UK and registered to the then Formula 1 driver Johnny Herbertfor the Sauber team.
“The car was assigned the distinctive registration plate ‘R30 GTR’, which it always bore (and still bears).
“Johnny’s ownership is well documented in the car’s original British logbook, a light-hearted sales note, newspaper clippings and a series of photos of him posing with the car – and looking suitably proud of it.”
Hebert, 59, raced in Formula 1 between 1989 and 2000 and often battled Michael Schumacher.
The racing superstar suffered a horrific skiing accident with his son Mick in 2013 on the slopes above Méribel in the French Alps.
In September, Herbert revealed that his former pal “wasn’t what he used to be” after his skiing accident and that his friends are often left in the dark about his health.
A more mainstream Nissan, the Qashqai, has previously won Sun Car of the Year.
Other car auctions announced this month include a retro Ford, a 1940 V8 endurance rally coupe deluxe model, going under the hammer at Bonhams in London.
Also up for auction is an Audi RS6 that once belonged to Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp, brother of former EastEnders star Martin Kemp.
