PM’s old Fiat may just be a vote winner

Silverstone Auctions, the popular car seller, have recently made available a 1971 car which was once owned by David Cameron, and they said that it is going to be returning to the campaign trail.

The car has been fully restored, and is estimated to be worth around £10,000, and it is going to go up for sale in the middle of November, at the NEC, during the Footman James motor show. The car was originally brought by David Cameron in 1998 and he has owned it for over 10 years, but he is only done 1000 miles in the car.

Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions, said: “No matter what your political persuasion, this is one cool car and we are delighted to be able to offer it for auction at our sale in November as part of the Footman James Classic Motor Show weekend.

“After all, it’s not every day that you get the chance to bid for a car that was once owned by a global figure. Our auction, which also contains other classics, modern supercars and competition cars, really does offer the chance to own a slice of automotive history.”

Apart from its fascinating past, the car has plenty to offer in its own right. It is believed to have covered just 13,000 miles from new and has been restored to standard specification by the current owner, which included stripping the entire vehicle and replacing any part that required attention.

“David Cameron has his hands full on many fronts, not least with his party conference, so I’m unsure that our auction will be at the top of his agenda, however, for one lucky new owner this stylish little Fiat will offer many years of happy motoring, whilst also being a genuine investment because of its illustrious history,” added Nick.
