UPDATE: Images removed by request of owner

In the eighties, David Sutton owned the company that prepared rally cars for Audi UK. It turns out he was collecting cars at the same time as he was preparing them, and putting them in his Historic Motors Ltd museum. The assortment includes seven Audis, some of which are Group B monsters, as well as an RS200 Cosworth, a couple of Lancias, a 1944 Volvo, and even a Skoda. Now the lot's being sold, 22 cars in all, through Morris & Welford. It's the kind of collection that, even if you had the time, money, and connections, would probably take you years to assemble individually. But you can have it all, right now... if you have what is likely to be an enormous sum of cash. Check out the other items on offer in the gallery below.

Editor's Note:
At the time of the original post, other online references to the rally collection's sale caused us to misunderstand the circumstances surrounding it. Contrary to our initial description of him as the "late" David Sutton, which was posted in error, Mr. Sutton is indeed alive and well. We apologize for this misunderstanding and regret any confusion this may have caused.

      Between the RS200, the Stratos, the Audi Quattro's, and the Delta S4, I'm more than sold. Holy hell, what a collection.

      That Skoda is awesome :D
      • 6 Years Ago
      As awesome as the Audis and Lancias are, I gave my heart to the RS200 years and years ago.

      Awesome collection. does he have the running gear for the Merkur?

      Lancia Stratos best looking Rally car ever.. amazing collection of the best ever Rally cars.. the only missing is the Lancia Delta Integrale
      • 6 Years Ago
      No SAABs? Not even a classic V4? Or the iconic 99? Gah!
      • 6 Years Ago
      And a Ford RS200!

      How much would some of the rides driven by lesser-known names go for?

      I'd say some of them would make for some damn fine track/autocross toys.

      All of my favorite competition cars ever all in one place. Alitalia Stratos FTW.

      Le mitiche Lancia Delta e Stratos sono delle vere bombe... le adoro
      • 6 Years Ago
      It's a 1963 Volvo PV44, not a 1944 Volvo.

      Also, I want it. Really bad.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yes it is an early 1960's PV544 with the 1800cc engine. They were haulers, I raced two of them in hillclimb's, autocross's and a few ice races on Lake Minnetonka in rgat era. Great cars and nearly indestructible.

      Now to get the Dakar 959, A Monte Carlo winning Mini, a 205-16, and an Integrale... in Martini colors.

      I actually bought a used set of the OZ Rallysports that are on the Ford in picture #8, they were really nice and looked great on my VW. Unfortunately I sold them to some other kid.
