Stunning pair of Ford Capris driven in hit TV crime series are off to auction – and set to go for an eye-watering amount | The Sun

World News

Two immaculate Ford Capris with an incredible TV history are up for sale and expected to fetch a HUGE price at auction.

The sporty pair featured in the hit action show The Professionals and are to be sold as one lot, with a staggering guide price of £200-£230k.

The smash series of the 70s and 80s saw Bodie and Doyle as the tough crime-fighting duo, using any means necessary to catch the bad guys. 

Martin Shaw’s character Ray Doyle drove the Capris while Lewis Collins, who played William Bodie, also drove a hot Ford – an Escort RS2000.

But it’s the Capris that were the four-wheel stars of the show, and the powerful 3.0-litre cars inspired a new generation of car enthusiasts.

The ‘Solar Gold’ model was lightly restored in 2021 by the current owner, and the interior still looks to be in fabulous condition with its original Recaro seats.

The original engine and gearbox have also been fully reconditioned, while it’s believed to have only covered 43,222 miles.

Silverstone Auctions, which is handling the sale, said: “We are privileged to offer these fabulously presented cars on behalf of our vendor from his sixteen-year ownership.

"Most people seem to agree that these two cars should always be garaged together and consequently they are to be offered as a pair and sold as one lot.”

The Classic Sale takes place over August 25th and 26th.
