ENTRIES are well under way for the next Charterhouse auction of vintage and classic cars in July, although there seems to be a theme of green cars consigned!

“Choosing the colour of a car can be a very personal choice," said auctioneer Richard Bromell.

"This, combined with certain colours being more popular than others in various decades, can provide some interesting colours.

“There again, there are some cars you expect to see a certain colour such as a red Ferrari, although they were also supplied new in a broad range of other colours including yellow, blue, silver and white.”

Green cars in this specialist classic and vintage car auction include the large, the small, and just about everything in between.

If a Bentley is your carriage of choice, there are two being sold from a collector who is retiring from driving. Both are painted in Balmoral green with a 1997 Bentley Continental R estimated at £25,000-£30,000 and a 1989 Bentley Turbo R for £10,000-£12,000.
