Collection includes famous Ecurie Ecosse vehicle hauler

Auction firm Bonhams is set to auction off what is described as the world's most comprehensive collection of cars from Scotland's flagship Le Mans racing team from the late 50s. The racing team is Ecurie Ecosse and it was founded by a Scottish businessman and amateur racing driver David Murray in 1951.

The racing team won consecutive Le Mans 24-hour races for Jaguar in 1956 and 1957. The auction will feature a private collection includes eight racing cars from the famed team. Two of the vehicles are racing Jaguars including a 1953 C-Type and in 1956 D-Type.

The collection also includes the teams famous double deck commer car transporter. The car transporter has been completely restored and can carry three cars with one on the inside two on top. I wonder what the collection will bring.
