More than 100 — 103 to be precise — cars will cross the block Saturday at Classic Car Auctions’ final sale of the year at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre near Leamington Spa, England. Highlights include a 1967 Ford Mustang convertible owned by Game of Thrones star Charles Dance.

Dance has owned the Mustang since 2002 and its restoration was completed this summer.

Another car being offered with celebrity ties is a 2007 Range Rover Sport designed for and originally owned by soccer star David Beckham, whose name is embroidered into the floor mats.

Also of note are a 1955 Ferrari 348 Spider with only 34,285 kilometers on its odometer; a 1978 Saab 96L Souvenir V4, the last one made for the British market and with only 3,010 miles since new; a 1962 Chevrolet Nova convertible in what CCA says is “amazingly well-preserved condition;” a one-owner 1980 MGB that has been driven only 181 miles since new; a 1977 Mini Clubman that has been driven only 8,703 miles — the car was purchased and then sold a year later to the owner’s friend, who put the car into a garage in 1985 and never used it again.

“We have a fantastic selection of classic and modern cars on offer in our final sale of the year, many with fascinating histories and provenance,” Guy Lees-Milne, CCA general manager, said in a news release. “Cars like this always prove in high demand at auction. It’s definitely one of our best catalogues yet and should be a great way to end our first year of classic car auctions.”

  1. It is kind of nostalgic, looking back to see those eras of cars come alive again right before your very eyes all in one place.
