The David Sutton Rally Collection. (for sale!!!)

It seems that some of the cars from the Sutton museum are for sale.
If anybody would like to lend me a few £100,000's I would like the A2, S1, Stratos & Escort

Put me down for the RS200, S4 and an S1 E2

I hope they stay together, in the uk and accessible to the public. That's an incredible collection of cars and it'd be a shame to see it broken up and the cars hidden away in private collections.

As BertMk 2 so beautifully put it -

We'll have to fight over the RS200. Also, I'll take a quattro and just sit there revving it - was there ever a better sounding rally car?

When I was lucky enough to ook around the museum, I was told that the cars didn't belong to David Sutton, he just looked after them for a foreign enthsiast investor. (A woman I think)...

Without doubt the best sounding rally car of all time METRO6R4. Pure sex in an exhaust pipe[well a pair actually]

I FANCY THE STRATOS! And the RS200 as well.

AFAIK the Audi Sport quattro S1 is an ex-Walter Röhrl Rally and the ex-Herbert Breiteneder Rallycross car, converted back to WRC specs.

I just can't see me behind any sort of blue oval - the Delta or even the Sunbeam would keep me perfectly happy

Completely forgot to mention that my wife would like to own that tiny blue Alpine A110, rather than her Daihatsu Sirion…

I am sure that is correct - the daughter of the original collector (and Investor in David Sutton Cars/ historic Motorsport Ltd), I think. I must admit that i thought that the collection had already been sold and was due to go to the USA but maybe that fell through.
